Default Drag Week 2018



And it begins.

It is bound to change but here is the preliminary list of things to get done for Drag Week 2018.

47 weeks now but yes.

Bonus, my friend that went with me and helped a lot with getting my car finished, now wants to take his car next year. Going to go get it tomorrow after work and bring it to my place so we can start getting his straight too.

His car is an 84 Hurst Olds we did a TPI 350/700R4 swap over 12 years ago. Still has the lighting rod shifters and they work with the trans swap. Don't plan on going as crazy with his but it should still turn a good number.

Already has 8 1/2 inch 10 bolt w3.73 posi
Planing on doing:
New Fuel tank and lines
Porting some stock style heads
Small cam
Ported lower manifold and bigger runner
52mm TB

He already has shorty headers and just got a nice trans cross-member setup to run true dual exhaust. Hopefully everything else checks out good and we can get it to the track and get some tuning done, and seat time for him with his car.

Sorry to hear that man, but I understand. Like I said though, for me, there is no way I'm not going. Not only do I have Chris hooked, I have another friend I work with that is thinking about building a car for it. We shall see what happens.

I've heard they will announce dates/locations at an event in December? But I can't remember which one. I'm pretty sure the new rules will be announced at the same time.

So what exactly is the big deal with this whole Drag Week thing? Until y'all started posting about it I never heard of the thing. None of the racers around here have ever mentioned it. Do you win something? Is this just the latest fad that no one will care about in 5 years?
