Storm coming up from the south. It will hit Richmond around 9pm tonight. Looks pretty big. I just got confirmation text from vmp.

Anyone planning on going this Friday 8/31? Trying to decide if I want to go after I get off of work or skip a week and go next week.

Either going to Richmond or VMP. Haven't decided. Richmond is a lot closer to me.

Richmond is actually closer for me too. How is the track prep there? It was a little lacking at VMP when I went.

I think the track prep at Richmond is actually pretty good. When I had my 91' mustang and 68' Camaro I ran my quickest times at Richmond. But right after the quarter mile ends better start breaking! The don't have as much stopping distance.

Also, if you have never been, it's really a mom-and-pop type of track, no where as big or nice as VMP.

However, given how humble the track is compared to most others, it still manages to draw some very fast cars. There is a red firehawk that is twin-turbo's pushing probably close to 900hp by now. Deep in the 9's should be in the 8's soon. He usually goes there.

I've been before, but only as a spectator. Are there usually a ton of cars on Friday nights? At VMP you could pretty much run back to back runs if you wanted, you just couldn't get any traction off the line unless you had drag radials or slicks.

Sorry hard to predict that, it's very unpredictable. I've seen it packed and not-so-much. Just varies.

My guess is that since VMP and Richmond were both closed last Friday, then both tracks will be packed. Just a hunch.

If I go it would be VMP, I have never been to richmond raceway. I heard it has a big bump in the track. Is that true?
