Wow that is a pretty early call. I would have to think that there was a decent amount of cars down the track Saturday and you will have the Friday night program this week. Weather has not been too bad so I would think there is time to work the track.

I guess if you want a quick race there is a quick 32 Saturday and Sunday at National Trail. Door car side is normally a mid to high 5 second bump and dragster side normally 4.90-5.0 bump. Open wheel and fuill body run in the final.

Might have been a nice weekend but there has been rain Sunday night, Monday, and today. Forecast does not look promising by any means. It's going to take more than a tire dragger and spray/rosen to bring it around. Might be able to make a killer starting line but down track is another story. Eventually they will wake up to the fact and admit the track needs serious work.

Let me guess...Quaker City Racers to the back mother fuckers. Quit your bitchin about it and take your streetcar down it already. It has a new owner who wants to make it right for the racers. I know you raced this weekend (after much debate) but you are a real racer right? Support the local tracks before they end up like 42

Is this coming from the same Guy that trailered his 11.70 grand national to the track and they were closed. LMMFAOCFBB

I personally think after some thought that maybe QCMP may have made the right decision about shutting the Q16 down for the weekend. Lets give them credit where credit is do!!! They were looking out for us instead of their bank account. I am sure that they will lose a considerable amount of money not running us this weekend. I posted in one of the Renegade threads that we need to give them sometime to get things in order after Dan Swindell did nothing to Quaker except basically run it into the ground.

To use a drag racing analogy or example, you guys didn't go out and race a top fuel or pro mod car your first year out. Give these guys a chance first financially to recover from the purchase and the many improvements and alterations to make it possible to open. Also there have been many hurdles to overcome regarding construction and gaining an access road after being abused by The Swindler on the former driveway. You guys should be singing high praises to Norm Fox and his crew for keeping this place open and making it better for us. Trust me with time QMP will have a track we can all be proud to say we race there.

Absolutely!!!! Rome wasn't built in the day. As I said in another thread I wouldn't be surprised if you dont see a whole new racing surface at QCMP in a year or so. They need to focus on their their weekly bracket program to generate some funds for more track upgrades. Look at it like this Norm has spent a shit ton of money out of his pocket and has only had a couple open weekends so his bank account has seen way more withdrawals compared to deposits!!!!!

We [The RENEGADE RACING ASSOCIATION] are supporting Norm Fox and his facility to hopefully help them out by having a race there in August in conjunction with the PRO-MODS. We hope they can deliver on a well prepared track as they've indicated they will.

We have had a pretty good rain the last 2 nights which is probably no help to the pit area. The days have been dry enough to maintain the track but no one wants to pull into a place they know they are going to be stuck in until someone pulls them out of.

We have raced there a long time. Never have we had issues with the traction there or an unsafe race surface. Now we normally only run 7.50-7.60 range but have sprayed for some 1/8 mile racing and no issue there going 4.60's. I know there are others that have been there running faster who did not complain. The track by no means is the smoothest track in the world but is very raceable running low 7's and into the 6's. After this season when they can finally address the need to correct a few bumps and update the forgotten surface, then there is no reason why this track should not hold deep into the 6's and start seeing 3 second 1/8 mile runs from the outlaw dragster or pro-mod fields.

The last time I raced there was July 3rd 2009 for a Q16 race. The reason I remember that is because my son was born on the 2nd. I turned on 1 medium system and ended up #1 qualifier with a 6.99 at 199 mph. I went straight down the track without any problems. I hope to see QCMP get another Pro-Am race too!!! Hell if Norm keeps working at it like he has been is there a National event possibly headed to QCMP in the future. The sky is the limit.
