Drag Racing!

 

Let's go watch some drag racing!  There will be some heads-up and index racing this night.

Admission is $15.

Gates open at 4:00pm.

Qualifying at 7:00pm

 

I set the time for this meetup at 4:30 so we can be there in time for qualifying but the real racing doesn't start until 7:30 so anytime in-between that would be fine.  

Also, I have plenty of room in my truck if anyone wants to ride along.  Maybe we can organize a meeting spot and carpool down.

The map above should show you where it is and if you have GPS then it should be pretty easy.  Just go to Norman and take Highway 9 East to Highway 77 and then south through Noble.

If you have any questions just ask.

    Facebook reports are that I-35 is at a complete standstill. People are standing outside their vehicles. Is there something goin on? Besides the game. Bad accident?

    I will be there between 6:30 and 7. I want to see the real race. lol Thank you for answering our questions.

    I added a picture above that is an aerial shot of the track. I put a red arrow showing where we will meet.

    There are two stands to sit in and the one closest to the starting line fills up the most so I thought we could go to the other so we would have plenty of room for everyone.

    I will post on here where we actually end up so if you can check this on your phone that's the best way to find us. If not, just take a good look at my picture and some of the others and find those people.

    I'm Curious--what does" heads-up" and"index racing" mean in drag racing lingo?

    August 25, 2013

    • Kurt

      Heads-up is what you normally think of drag racing as, the first car to the finish line wins. Index racing is done with a set time the cars cannot exceed, such as 12.00 seconds. It's the first car to the finish line without going quicker then that index time. If you go too quick it's called a breakout and you automatically lose even if you were first to the finish. It's a great form of drag racing for those who don't have deep pockets because it doesn't matter how much money you spend on your car, you have that index limit you can't exceed.
