Attention all 8.50 racers and crews:

The Al Anabi Racing 7th annual Shakedown at E’town will be here before we know it. Again, I want to thank to Dave Hance, Michelle Marchese, and Keith Mitterman at Finelines for all of their hard work and for once again including our 8.50 Index class in the Shakedown 2009.

In 2008 many racers, crewmembers and friends came together and jointly became a Shakedown sponsor. They were known as the “Raceway Park 8.50 Index Racers”. For those of you racers, crewmembers and friends that are interested in becoming a Shakedown sponsor again in 2009, I would like to include the “Raceway Park 8.50 Index Racers” as a sponsor for the Shakedown. Raceway Park has agreed to list us all by name and show our group name as RP 8.50 Index Racers. Our sponsorship will be well represented through many websites, in Raceway News, which is given out to all racers, sponsors and fans at the event, through p.a. announcements, and on the gate letter. This sponsorship allows Raceway Park to pay something back to those who only go a few rounds. Last year we had 59 cars show up. I'm sure that number will increase this year.

Also, I have been in contact with the Official Hotel of the Shakedown at E’town, Best Western East Brunswick (7 miles from track). They have agreed to give us a group rate of $75 a night, including anyone wishing to stay over Friday night. Below is the link for the Best Western. I'll hold a block of rooms under the 8.50 class. I'll need to give them an approximate # of rooms so the sooner everyone lets me know, the better.

Please let me know who's in for the sponsorship and your opinion on the hotel. Thanks!!

"Must be street appearing/no gutted interiors/carpeted interior even if rear seat is removed (The interior should look clean and professionally done)"

Well..........the above statement ought to pretty much eliminate all the riff raff, and all the cobbled together ("Pinks") P.O.S.'s!!

+1 for the hotel...im out of the cash so I cant put any extra up (i dont even know what the entry fee will be)
For anyone wanting to make a reservation at the host hotel Best Western (732-238-4900), simply mention the Shakedown and your room rate
will be $75.00 + tax. Give her a credit card # to hold the room. The cancellation policy is they want a 24 hour notice,
then no charges will be incurred. I would recommend anyone wanting to stay over call soon. They are not holding any rooms.
The 8.50 class is simply getting a discounted rate. Last year, there wasn't one empty room....so call soon.
And make sure you write down your confirmation #.

This class is growing....rapidly. I believe there are several tracks out West and South of Jersey looking into it. Great rules. Great people. Stock appearing cars. And if you've never been to the Shakedown @ E-town, you're missing the best race of the year in the NorthEast.

There's no denying that "SHAKEDOWN AT E'TOWN" is going to be a blast... Everyone should be marking their calendars for October 17th & 18th, and be certain to find their way to Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey... This event has proven year after year to be a genuine Outlaw Doorslammin' delight!!... The nation's best tow to E'Town to participate in this no-holes-barred barrage of Heads-Up drag racing... The classes are HOT-- The payouts super and SUBSTANTIAL-- And the fans bring the kind of enthusiasm to this race that's unlike anything else you'll ever see!!... Follow the signs to Raceway Park and make sure that YOU are part of SHAKEDOWN... This is definitely a "MUST SEE" event for anyone who considers themselves to be hardcore!!...

Gary, thanks so much for your kind words... I'm glad that you enjoyed Drag Racing Underground's "SHAKEDOWN AT E'TOWN" video and that ya think it's great, I genuinely appreciate you sayin' that... We do our best to serve the true "hardcore" drag racing community, and there's no denying that the Outlaw Heads-Up Doorslammer scene is definitely about as hardcore of a scene as you'll find anywheres in the sport-- It's "True Grit" for sure... We still have not had the opportunity to edit and produce another "SHAKEDOWN" video, much due to other projects gettin' in the way, like music oriented stuff and other things, however, we do eventually plan on releasing another super "SHAKEDOWN" video that will feature a few years worth of ULTRA-INTENSE action-- It'll be jam-packed with goodies... And we'll definitely be at E'Town come this October 17th & 18th to cover the event... Our good friends, Dave Hance, Michelle Marchese, and the entire E'Town crew do a phenomenal job of making "SHAKEDOWN" an event that rocks the foundation like no other... I'm really looking forward to this upcoming one... The racers and fans are the real deal!!... "The Doc" (Celebrity Drag Racing Authority & Visionary)...
