I booked National Trail Raceway late in the fall for an all Ford event, The date is 29-30 October. This does not conflict with NMRA, FFW or TruckFest. It won't be all Lightnings or Trucks, we're announcing the new 4R70W Monster Box this month and I expect to have some Mustang/T Bird/ Cougar people coming along as well.

Right now, it's a matter of finding a few sponsors to help pay the bills, I don't care if it makes money, I just don't want to eat the whole chunk myself (it's about $20K total), and I'm really gonna need some volunteers to help me set up the actual drag racing part, help with the rules, scheduling etc... 

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Here at LR.Com we plan to help Gregg and this wonderful event anyway and everyway we can.
We're Co-Sponsor of the event, and we can offer YOU the Racers, and YOU the Vendor a Discounted Rate.

For the Racers, it's listed at $75, you can get your pre-entries here at LR for $50.00

For the Sponsors, it's listed at $1500, you can get your pre-entries here at LR for $1200.00

Chris is working out the final details with Gregg, and I will update that shortly.
""BUT WE SHOULD START A LIST NOW""

An event like this cost A LOT to put together, but there is also A LOT of opportunity for the Vendors, so please Vendors give it some thought, and of course this is going to be a kick ass day for Racers and Spectators too, so please see if you can make it.
(Don't know if I can "yet", but hopefully Chris is closer and will?) either way,
WE SUPPORT THE EVENT FULLY AND ASK THAT YOU PLEASE DO THE SAME

I think it's a great idea. I can't promise I can go though being that it's not closer to home. Ehhh, I've driven to Chicago before though.. [smilie=fingersx.gif]

Re: Factory Tech Racing event, Columbus Ohio

I'm really looking forward to hosting the event and meeting a lot of people. I do the WFC thing every year, but I'm always very pressed for time in St Louis (which happens to be kinda sorta my second home, btw)

Anyone who is interested in helping out, I'm waiting on any suggestions!

This might be motivation for me to make a few extra dollars and spring for a new supercharger to try out at that event :)

Re: Factory Tech Racing event, Columbus Ohio

I'd really like to make it... I think it is a fantastic idea!
But, I'd have to take a week off to drive out and drive back to race with you guys.
Also, if I go that distance again, I'll have to find someone with the capability of towing me
home if something should break.

So, I also wouldn't be able to commit that I can definitely make it.

The small Chikenears crew will be there!  If we can make it, anybody can.  Let's make this the biggest event of the year!!!

I have the means (with a little help from a friend) to put on a car show there also, if the interest is great enough.:)

Re: Factory Tech Racing event, Columbus Ohio

Well, we're on, I have the track booked and the order in for good weather. It's pretty cool around then so I'll be expecting the best times of the year from a lot of people.

I have an idea, also. I want to have a class for "grudge races" where you get 3 passes against a chosen opponent to settle scores once and for all, as it were.
A slight extra fee, and winner takes 75% of the pot. (the rest helps pay for the track, or something like) Comments?

Re: Factory Tech Racing event, Columbus Ohio

Another Idea I'm playing with is trying to get the winners of the various classes from FFW and NMRA to race head to head, to settle the titles for the year.

No he won't. I have given instructions that Jim is not allowed on the grounds during the event, not as a sponsor, not as a racer and not as a spectator. He's not welcome at anything that I have any involvement with.

Thank you!!!!!!!!
They would have all dialed their "10 second" trucks back to the 12.90 range to be "competetive". Nice.
