it is all about having fun. I don't care who I line up next too, it's all about me improving every time I go down the track. I could care less if I win or lose to the car in the next lane. All I know is I see green, hit the gas and go, the rest is a huge smile going down the track. whoo hoooo!!!

Warning: Above is me, but if you see a girl sitting in my car, behind the wheel, be ready, as she will want to blow your doors off, then let you know about it. Please, I beg everyone, let her win, or it will cost me a lot of money to make it go faster!

Hell, If that's all I had to do to get the wifes approval for go fast parts, I would line her up against the 9sec club out there every time.

You may be on to something though, my wife did say she wanted to try out drag racing this year

She already wants a Viper or Porsche Cayenne, but hopefully I can draw her into my Camaro addiction if I let her run a few of the camaros.

I'm telling you, all it took was one time down the track and a monster was created. She went from "well, I don't know, maybe just once". Till all winter hearing "when is the track open, when is the track open" and "I want to race xxx and xxx and xxx and xxx and xxx and do you think I can beat xxxx". OMG, speed demon created and I can't stop it!

But I tell you want, that permagrin was as heart warming as could be. She 'got it' and was just so thrilled to run 117 mph. Even her first time down the track, I was expecting her to just go 'fast' and get the hang of it....nope, green light and she hammer the f*ck out of and was gone. I stood there picking my teeth up. This little,timid girl turns into a monster when you put a helmet on her. Geesh.

I hate to say it but I agree. Paying $100 seems like a waste if I'm going to have to line up against v8s every race

Don't forget bracket racing folks. If your car doesn't fit nicely in a class you are comfortable with, braket racing is the Great Equalizer.

Ah, come on, go for it! I have had a blast surprising & beating a number of SS's heads up. Even beat a ZL1 at LS Fest last year in bracket racing & have beaten a supercharged SS too. I even have a blast when I get blown off the track. Who knows, you may be the next one to earn the SSlayer nick name! I have to admit, last year after having mixed feelings about lining up against the V8's I was a bit dissappointed when there was only one person in V6 class & they put all us V6'ers (all 4 of us) in V6 class regardless of mods. I had been rather looking forward to taking a couple more V8's for my got 'cha list. Go down there & represent for us V6ers.

I don't have a problem racing v8s and have beat many of them already (dumb drivers, spinning a lot, or just don't plain know how to drive) but I don't mind when I'm only paying 20 dollars to race all day. 100 dollars is a different story to just get blown out considering a lot of the cars that will be going know what they're doing.

I know $ 100 is a lot of $ compared to our local tracks. But this is the FEST! If you autocross & drag race, I think it is well worth the $. I just saved up the $ & had a blast. I wish I could go again this year. I'd definately be in the mix making those SS's worry about getting beat by a girl AND a V6! I treasure that Camaro5 Fest 2nd place trophy far beyond any local trophys I have. Just my 2 cents.
