AZ 1/2 Mile

Last time there was 2 camaros, and only 1 5th gen. It was sad. Where are all the fast AZ 5th gens? Next 1/2 mile is March 7th. Would love to see more 5th gens out there running.

I'd love to come out and race, but there is too much snow outside to get my car out.
And I would have to take a week off work to get there.
Last time I did 148mph in the 1/2 mile at our Canadian event. And still in 4th gear.
You guys should get out and try this.
You will love it!!!!

Only 5th gen last time was JonZL1 in his modded ZL1. I believe he did 153mph or around there. There was a really fast 1300+hp turbo 4th gen camaro that should be back out. Other than that, just a bunch of GTRs, Ferraris, Bugattis, Lambos, McClarens, Porches, etc.

Please do. Even watching/riding is a ton of fun. Where else can you ride in some badass cars doing 180+mph.

Just disappointed at the Camaro turn out last time. There were as many Bugatti Veyrons as there were 5th gen Camaros.

I am planning on going this time. Rain scared me off last time. I wouldn't consider my Camaro fast, but I'm curious what it'll do and it looks like a blast.

How much power does it make? 580rwhp zl1 did 152mph for reference. 620rwhp GT500 was low 150s too.

Have to register, not sure when that opens, will have to look it up. Last one sold out, and judging by how popular it was and this being only 1 day this time I bet it sells out fast. If you just want to watch you just show up, but for people racing better sign up quick once it opens.

Looked it up, January 24th registration goes live.

I had registered for the event but my sisters wedding took precedence as it was held on the same weekend. I will make it out for this next event for sure, Not the fastest 5th Gen but should been fun to see what this tank does when I stretch its legs.

Gila Bend, ~45 minutes south of Phoenix. Was a super easy drive out. Drove there, raced, drove home.

Striker, considering the ONLY 5th gen was Jon's ZL1, you would easily be the fastest 5th gen. Should be a solid upper 150 low 160 car with that much power.

Guess Ill need to get with the tuner to make a little more of an aggressive tune for this event. My shit seems a little too watered down.

Great...Maricopa County. Very familiar with that entire area.

Home of "Let's pull Ivan over for doing 6 mph over everytime he drives through here."

I literally got 13 speeding tickets in a year when I was (young and dumb) stationed in El Centro. I used to drive home every other weekend in my slow old FBody. There was one time the same guy pulled me over three times in a row. Once for doing 2 mph over the limit.

It only took me 8 months to realize that they figured out my pattern and time I'd be coming through only to be waiting.

I got over on them....I ended up getting out of the Navy. Hahah! LOL

Anyhow. Great place to run fast. Nice and flat. I'll stay tuned. Be cool to check this event out man.

Ivan

Come on out. $200 is a bargain for it. It was the best day of racing/fun I've ever had in a car. $30 at a drag strip to make 3-4 passes, or $200 for all day making 20-40 passes if you want, hanging out, getting rides in other cars, etc. It was a blast.

How do I pass tech for this event ? similar to 1/4 drag nights? I run a nitto nt05r drag radial but was told these tires would not be allowed at the 1/2 mile event.

It looks like you self tech. There is a sheet to download and fill out yourself for your car. I also saw that DRs were not allowed. That doesn't make sense....I wanted to use mine! Lol

I'm trying to talk my dad into bringing his 1969 Z/28. He like the idea of it being a roll race since the 302s have no torque. Plus we always talk shit to each other so this would be a good opportunity to put that to rest.

I figured I would have to grab a new set of tires to run at this event.. problem is I don't have many options in @ 305/45/18 but nitto DRs.

bring your dad and drag him all the way down the runway. New vs old muscle always is fun to see.

Drag radials are not an issue as long as they are in good shape. NT05R are fine, along with ET streets. Hoosiers are not allowed. I ran 325 ET streets, and about every RWD car was on drag radials last time.

Like 376, just self tech. Fill the form out and bring it with.
