    so expensive to race it... Friday night drags is $20 a night.... for the cost, I could race the whole season in Hampton at that price... its cool and all, but good god that price! (HDPE and autocross cost about the same, and its more than a dragrace in those)

    Very true! I could never afford to race there. But its a great time to watch.

    Do you ever do the Run what ya Brung nights in Commerce? pretty much the same thing. $20ish to race all night as long as you have a helmet and brake lights work.

    no, but I may check it out. I am really biased to do Atlanta Motor Speedway, I am an insider club member there, so its kind of my turf lol... its $20, same rules apply. I just hpe none of them have a decibel limit (AMS cant do it bc its a NASCAR track, come to think of it an NHRA track couldn't either...)

    1/2 mile is an odd distance. Causes the guys set for 1/4 - 1/8 drag to need to regear. Not long enough to reach top speed like salt flats events. Not long enough to break 200 (for street cars) like standing mile events.

    Not saying it wouldn't be interesting. Just another niche in the market of motorsports.

    I can say this. At that price, I'd be ticked if I didn't get at least 6 runs in. No minimum runs guaranteed it kind of discouraging.

    is it not owned by the same, i mean i know the commerce track is Atlanta Dragway but is it not owned by same? As far a decibel limit i highly doubt the one i commerce does. They bring all the top fuels in there all the time with no issues. and the last time i went to RWYB there was some cam'd Corvette that was louder than a funny car.

    most of my friends that race, get 10-12 runs a day. and i think its 1/2 mile because its an airstrip, but dont quote me on that. not sure about the other races they do in FL. (maybe shorter or longer) A lot of cars are breaking 200 most arent street cars but a dual turbo Civic last year that was a beast hit 189, it looked like a junker and then it fired up, most people were highly impressed, and a few GTR's got ups of 190-202
