Virginia Motorsports Park

Does anyone ever come out to Virginia Motorsports Park on Friday nights for their test & tune? I went out last night for the first time and had a pretty good time, but was the only Camaro there. Tons of Mustangs all talking trash of course.

Jason,

I have been there before, kind of a drive for me. How did you do against the Mustangs?

I beat a few and got beat by others. There was one guy running a 2012 Mustang GT that was heckling me a little. Told me he only had a cold air intake and off road pipe and tune and was able to run 11.80s. He slaughtered me on the first run because I missed 3rd gear, but he was definitely faster than me even without missing any gears. He was on drag radials though and I was on the stock Pirellis. It was my only my 2nd time drag racing (first was at Camaro5 Fest 3) and I definitely need some help launching my car. I'd be interested in letting a more experienced driver run my car just to see what it's capable of.

I will come out and meet with you if you would like. I like that track. I like cooler evenings, so October is a good start time, but can be earlier if you would like.

I think the only date for Street Wars at VMP in October is the 12th and I have to work that Friday. They have one on September 28th though that I'll probably go to assuming my car is still in one piece at that point.

There is also a Friday night test and tune at Richmond Dragway on October 5th. I've never been there before so I'm not sure about how that track is.

I'll probably go this Friday the 24th for street wars. They have a points class, but I just do test and tune.

Since Richmond Dragway is not doing their street night, I might make the trip down to VA Motorsports Park if some other Camaro's are going to be there.

There was only 1 challenger there last week and he was none too fast. I managed to beat him twice and he was on drag radials, so maybe you need to come teach him how to drive

If we want to stick with Virginia Motorsports park, these are the dates available:

September 14th
September 21st
September 28th
October 12th
November 2nd

I have to work on Sept 21st, Oct 12th, and Nov 2nd, but I get off by 5pm so I could still make it if those dates work better for others. We could always pick 2 dates and use the 2nd as a backup in case the first one gets rained out.

Also, they do have some Saturday test and tunes, but those are $100 as opposed to the Friday nights which are only $17. If anyone knows of another/better place with more dates available, let us know.

I'm going Friday (24th) street-night to VMP. Supposed to get down into low 70's and high 60's that night.
On August 31st will probably go to Richmond Drag way Street night.
Just spectating right now, got low miles on the car so trying to *behave*.
