SS vs. Duster. - finally?

The April 28th Saturday Morning Fun Run destination is Lake Cumberland Dragway in nearby Russell Springs, KY. We will meet at Hardee's South (light #22 on US 27 Somerset, KY, 42501) beginning at 8:00am to grab some FREE breakfast for participants only. Then head out for the strip at 9:00am. Cost is $10 for unlimited passes down the track! Street legal cars ONLY and we suggest you bring a helmet. Gonna be a blast!

This was posted on my FB by the team at Somernites Cruise in Somerset, KY. One of the biggest car show/cruise in Kentucky known as a cruise capitol. I can't wait till it starts up at the drag my co-worker wants to run'em in his custom, claimed 400hp at the crank 70's Plymouth Duster against my SS. I heard he hits in the 12's, just don't know if its the low or the high 12's. If you can make it out I'm sure there will be a lot of people to go up against and at $10 for an unlimited pass sounds good. Come on out.

The Duster owner told me today that on a good day for him he ran a 12.5sec in the 1/4mile. Usually around a 12.6. Can I take him with my mods?

Yeah depending on the DA/weather you should be close to mid 12's. I'm guessing 12.5-12.7 if its during the day.

Good luck!

Thanks. Yeah he said 12.5 was his best. All the cars are gonna head down to the track at 9:00am. I have posted this match-up toward the end of last year but we never raced and he put it up for the winter.

I haven't. I talked to him about that he was explaining it to me today. Were both Automatics. He was telling me he hits the gas after the light has turned yellow to make the green light right on time. He is experienced at drag racing, in his 50's and rebuilt the car himself. You can view his duster by looking back at my past thread of my SS vs. his Duster.

if it's your first time, I would leave any esp ON and gently get on the gas....just mashing the gas down will make for a pretty smoke show and terrible 1/4 times good luck, I think the other guy is going to outdrive you, but as it's your first time out, it's to be expected. get out a few times and learn the car and you'll be a neck and neck race more than likely.

have fun!

Lake Cumberland dragway is my home track! during the season I'm there almost every Saturday bracket racing my dads old 73 roadrunner.

Just a warning, the track is only an eighth mile so whoever launches better and gets a better light is most likely gonna be the winner...not much room to chase down a car on an eighth mile track haha

Maybe I'll be able to show up and meet another camaro5 member, and possibly bring my camaro so we can gang up on the mopars and fords! Haha

Yeah I've never been. Was planning on going to London's drag way until I seen they were meeting up at the Hardee's then headed to Russel Springs to the Lake Cumberland drag. I hope to be there that morning and head out to cruise the 27 strip with all the other muscle in the evening. It would be cool to meet any other Camaro5 members there so if you live anywhere near KY you outta come out its the biggest car show/ cruise around.

My bad man. I had a slow work week and really couldn't afford the gas to get there and drag and for the cruise later. I will definitely be cruising tonight around 8pm. Do you plan on coming out there, what color is your car I'll keep an eye out for ya? Oh and did you see the orange 70's Duster I spoke of?

To be honest I probably wouldn't have went to the fun run if I didn't live 5 miles away haha, but I didn't see the duster, in fact, the only mopar I saw there was my dads 2007 hemi truck, and of course he just came to watch. My car is a 2010, red with silver stripes, and it has chrome foose 20's on it so if you see me don't be a stranger!
