I think you will see some local guys there. Few are going to travel down there with the rules that are in place. Unfortunetly I think its going to be a poor turnout.

Yeah.... The rules are going to eliminate a lot as is it being 1/4 mile. I'll go and run Street Outlaw but mainly as a test session. Not even sure if I'll go to the trouble to change the gear. May just roll out of the throttle at the 1/8th. The part that is appealing (but sad at the same time) is that the purse is guaranteed and the racer attendance most likely won't be good. Might be able to also enter Extreme for some first round money and some additional testing.
I think the "trying to be unique" and "keeping with some of the tradition" is hurting them more than just rolling with the times. I think 1/4 mile will be a turn off as well for a lot of people. If it wasn't my home track, I wouldn't be going.

If its gonna be 1/4 mile most wont show up. All real racing is 1/8 mile I know we wont go if its gonna be 1/4 mile. 1/4 is only good for slow cars this race should be 1/8 mile

Agreed as much as I hate to say it I don't think the turn out will be what they want, I hope I'm wrong but the 1/4 mile is gonna make guys change to much for a 1 race deal. JMO :p

By my figuring, you'll lift about 150' after I do! I'll be at the 1/8, you'll be just before the 1000' right?

I hope Orlando gets back to what it was. It was like the Woodstock of heads up back in the day.
