FE Powered Get Together 10-29-11
« on: August 16, 2011, 07:21:12 am »
Is anyone interested in an informal get together of FE powered vehicles at Cecil County Dragway on 10/29/11? They are running a RAM series race that day and always offer a test & tune option as part of the day. The last couple of years I've attended this event and gotten as many passes as I've wanted. The track is always prepped very well for this event and the air is usually killer at Cecil that time of year. I'd almost guarantee you will run your best pass ever there during this event.

I've talked to the promoter of the RAM racing series and we can have our own section of the pits too. We could do a little grudge racing and some serious bench racing too. Very informal, just a chance to get together before the weather turns.

The only cost would be the normal test & tune entry fee. Cecil County is in Maryland near I-95 for those that have never been there. Very easy to get to with lots of drag racing history there.

I'm not looking to make a dime on this. Just trying to get a group of FE powered vehicled together for a good time. You don't have to race to be part of the event. Just show up with a FE powered car or truck and park with the group in the pits. It doesn't matter if you have real Cobra Jet or a Edsel. If it's FE powered show up and meet others with the same interests in engines.

That would be great!!  Please spread the word to the FE fanatics you may know.  I've already had a racer that has confirmed he is coming from Kentucky and another is seriously considering it from Denver. 
Who knows, if we get a good turnout we could turn this into a larger event next year.  RAM is very willing to work with us.

Jody, It was nice to meet and talk with you at the MCA show. Thanks for coming down. I wish my car was closer to going down the track and I did not have plans to take it out west. I would be at this event. Maybe next year if Danny gets somthing going? You both should get together as close as you are. I will keep in touch.

Above is the link for a flyer for the FE Get Together at Cecil County Dragway scheduled for 10-29-11.  The flyer was developed by Doug Bender from the Fairlane Club of America and I really appreciate his help.  Please feel free to print out the flyer and give them out if you get a chance.  Also spread the word about the event.  Word of mouth is the best advertisement!!!  It will be a great day of FE fun!!!

Thanks,
Jody

Things are shaping up nicely for the up coming FE Get Together @ Cecil County Dragway on 10-29-11. I've confirmed we will be piting on the tower side of the track just below the concession stand. We will have our own area coned off so we can pit/park as a group. We will also have our own staging lane so we can run as a group.

Also, Bangshift.com will be covering the event. Bangshift.com is one of the best webazines going. They will have a write up on the FE group and a huge photo gallery as part of their coverage. If you want to see your FE on the web be at Cecil County Dragway on 10-29-11.

Remeber you don't need to have a racecar to be part of the fun. You can either race your street car or just cruize in and park in the FE area. If you've never raced before this would be a good chance to see what your FE can really do. There will be plenty of experienced racers there if you have any questions.

Please feel free to check out the link and spread the word.

Hope to see you there!!!

Well it's finally almost here.  The FE Get Together is this Saturday 10/29/11 at Cecil County Dragway.  So far the weather looks great for making horsepower, Sunny with a high of 50.  Hope to see some of you there.

Remember we will be pitting on the tower side just below the food stand.  If you have any last minute questions just email me at troublemaker427@comcast.net . 

There will be no classes, just test and tune, you against the clock (grudge runs are fine too!!) so there is no pressure.  The track prep will be on kill and the weather will be great for making power!!  Come out and see what your FE will do in the 1320....

Chris, crack the whip on the 422 guys and start thrashing.  Your '70 needs to make it!
