GDRA race number 4 is right around the corner. July 7th, 2012... This will be the 2nd outing for the new 9.50 class and the first trip as an association to Cordova Dragway Park. Get signed up now as the deadline is this Saturday at midnight!
We have classes for 6.90, 7.80. 8.60, and 9.50 index racers!!! This event is the first time we have been to Cordova Dragway Park and is sure to be one for the books. We have seen the fall of the Ken Kendall Vega in the 8.60 class as Rocket Ron Boheneck got the win in the last race out. We are waiting on the rematch once again of Steve Roden's Pontiac Safari "Big Wagon" versus Ken Kendall's Chevrolet Vega "Little Wagon" and with fire in his eye's, Steve has vowed to never let Ken beat him again!!!
Once again the 9.50 class will be in action at Cordova Dragway Park and we expect a great turn out for this class. Down Town Sarah Brown grabbed #1 qualifier in her Pontiac Trans Am aka "Skippy" at the last event at Byron Dragway but will she be able to do it for the second time in a row? Or will it be Jeff Samples and his wicked Vega? Or possible, Ed Thalhammer with his bright orange Camaro? We'll have to see but who is going to have the gusto to take home all the cash?
Little birdies squawking have said there is a very wicked 57Chevrolet coming out to play with the big dawgs... who do you suppose that is? Could it be Doug Roden and the Legend Racing? Meh... Could be. Where's our 7.80 standing on the bumper door cars? Well, I have heard that there could be contenders like Rob Pearce and his wicked wild Studebaker making the trip to contend with the rest of the boys. Any way you stack the pot, there is a lot of money up for grabs and I am certain, there will be a lot of new faces who are ready to take their share home.

Sadly the '57 won't be in attendance, too difficult to run 2 cars at once with only 3 people.
The Safari will be out, along with Legend Racing teammate Jim Pydo.
I know I am ready to go, after the first time in over 5 years I have lost during the 1st round of competition, I won't let that happen again.
