*** CA Speedway Drag Day Confirmed - 9/15 - Sign up Here ***

It was close... was about to give up, and they called this morning. They are mailing me a contract, and we have reserved Friday 9/15 for our official E55 Drag Day! We will have the entire strip to ourselves from 9am to 5pm.

As you probably know, we can bring a max of 10 cars. The track rental is $2500, thus $250 per car. You can mail a check to me for your car, or use Paypal ($260) to reserve your spot in the field of ten... Please contact me for my paypal info or mailing address and reserve your spot via private IM. I will confirm each person on this thread until we reach 10.

First dibs: Those who originally said they would / likely would participate:

Jangy
Jay55
TopGun32
L8Apex
sdsilverm3
JRocket
JAME55
Mark Cummins
BENZGal

I'll email each of you asking to confirm... if you don't want your spot, tell me so we can free it up for others!

**** NOTE: We need Snell 95 helmets or better. We can obviously share helmets if someone is willing to do so. Any of you have a Snell 95 or better? It would be great if we had a couple. IF NOT, something to keep in mind: As of 1/2007, the new requirement will be Snell 2000. So if you're considering buying a helmet, buy a Snell 2000! ****

Let the games begin!

Congrats!!! That is great! Too bad they are restricting it to only 10 cars. 20 cars would be perfect. Anways... it is what, it is. Where is the CA Speedway? It is a 1/4 track right?

NOOOO!!!! Not the 15th!! You guys took the one day i can't. see? always something against the Jangster. Man, I'm dying for this!! I just can't do it on the 15th. i just started a new job and we have our company picnic that day AND my department is to organize it, so i just can't leave my crew and take off. I almost want to say it is mandatory for the management anyway. Cough Cough, I feel a chill coming!!

Dude... this day might be worthy of a "death in the family"... just don't get caught lying! Its going to be great.

I'll keep everyone posted on the status of who is in, who isn't... the play is in the pay... when I get your payment, you're on the list. I'll also cross out people who say they can't... like you poor Jangster... is that your final final answer?

I have no helmet, so maybe we'll do a group buy on that, too... hell, I don't even know where to get them...

no, that's an excellent idea... we need an E63. Screw magazines and speculation and weird reviews... let's see how an E63 traps versus stock E55s and K2s, etc...

I'm going to have two video cameras going, too...

Yeah, why only 10 people? That's sucks. If anybody doesn't confirm or drops out of the list, I want to bring my C32 coupe. If it's from 9-5pm then those 10 people would probably be able to do a lot of runs, probably more than enough.

Get the ten first, then worry about more next time. Ten is perfect. I am out. Just can't flake on work. That's the only place I'm pretty serious and professional!!

I drive a E55T, SLK55 and 65 Mustang Conv.
The back of Wolf's helmet says Snell M2000 DOT Model GF650. Would this be good enough?

*** Update *** And as a note, this day is a go... we won't cancel or something silly if we don't get all 10... I'll just walk right on over to the 65 and other sections... 10 will be easy to get! So, if you want to be one of them, speak up soon! By the way, since Jangy is out, we can take another person. As people say yes or no we'll make way for new peeps if possible!
