I have been to all the fest and had a blast at this one. However for some reason the 1st stands out as the best. Perhaps it was that it was we didn't know what to expect and had an awesome time. Plus it was the first time I ran the 1/4. Personally I do like it in April the best, the first two fell on my birthday and that made it even more fun. Getting to meet everyone, the parking lot parties, folks from GM walking around, spending money at vendor booths - all worth it. See you in Texas next year (I hope).

1. Wish they carried the tradition of coins like the 1st Fest.
2. Confusing why each person had to pay spectator while there were two of everything in the bags. Was $25 supposed to get two people in?
3. Would be nice if they had open times on the drag strips for people not wanting to spend $100 to compete and all. I would like to have ran but not just a few times for $100.
4. Would also be nice to have registration Thu night at the hotel and get your wrist bands then. Then not have to wait in the morning on Fridays to pay and stuff.

Great post... Couple of good points there too... maybe $50 for Friday "open racing" and $100 for both days with competitions being Saturday afternoon. I wondered how the folks who just wanted to make a couple of passes felt about the $100. It is very expensive to rent the a track like this but as we get more data now maybe it can be worked out.

I'd actually do the 50.00 Friday thing.

I have zero chance of racing any head 2 head on day 2. (11.1 being the slowest to qualify) and brackets will be the first casualty of any delays like rain.

I was actually unaware that there would be no open racing on Saturday.

NO biggie for me but I heard some grumblings on day 2. Nobodies fault that it rained though. Next year I'll get all my racing done on day one and hang out on day 2.

I'll still pay the 100.00 if there is no choice but I'd def. be one that paid the 50.00 and raced day one.

I'd suspect that many would. Unless they were stacked for their respective classes.



PS: Why not have a TVS2300, comp cam, black paint, orange trim, street tire, 5'6" and below class?

My only complaint would be that there wasn't enough time to spend with everyone I finally got to meet. Being at the track 2 full days pretty much ate up all the free time and after dinner I was shot after about an hr in the parking lot. Not really a complaint I guess, just my bitching! I would actually consider going again and NOT racing so I'd be able to watch the fast cars go and hang with the peeps.









Ah, gotcha suckers!!!! Of course I will be smoking you all on the trackl!!!

Only 1/4 mile drags at Camaro5 were competition drags? No just racing for fun?

I can gaurantee the majority of Camaro5 members would prefer to just run for fun at a reasonable price.

The first day was "Test & Tune" (as has always been the case, even at Fest's 1 and 2) which is open to anyone who wants to line up and run. You can go as many times as you want, all day long.

I believe the morning of Day 2 was also Test & Tune. But after noon it was all down to the competitions.

Definitely gotta get out of bed to race.

I got to the track about 11:00 am on Sat. as you might remember.

I knew I missed out on the free runs. But luckily I got some at the end of the day.

1. Wish they carried the tradition of coins like the 1st Fest. I'm so with you on this one but right now we only have plans for coins every five years makes them a little more special so to say.
2. Confusing why each person had to pay spectator while there were two of everything in the bags. Was $25 supposed to get two people in? It was only $20 for spectator, $100 for drivers and that was two day passes. If you all saw the track rental bill your mouths would do this...
3. Would be nice if they had open times on the drag strips for people not wanting to spend $100 to compete and all. I would like to have ran but not just a few times for $100. 100 people drag raced and that was over 600 passes for the weekend.
4. Would also be nice to have registration Thu night at the hotel and get your wrist bands then. Then not have to wait in the morning on Fridays to pay and stuff.We are working on this one for the next fest...

I did not know that either. I paid the $100 and only intended on running once or twice. I actually didn't run as it turns out (after seeing all the broken cars 1000 miles from home). But I have no qualms about helping support paying for the track and all. I considered it an $80 donation over the spectator price. (and got a good parking spot near GM)
