I've been wanting to run again at South Jersey's famed Atco Dragway . Last time was in Oct. of 2015 with my '94 Caprice . New opti, Taylor wires and Flowmaster 40s on the Roady this time. I mainly race because it's fun Smile
Anyone else possibly make it? $20 to run, gates open at 4.30.

Ya just couldn't keep that info under wraps could ya Johnny Boy? Mad
I didn't just spin the tire, I roasted the crap out of it for at least 100 feet! You said you looked in your mirror and saw only smoke! How embarrassing. Rolling Eyes Still haven't cleaned off ALL that rubber on my quarter panel and exhaust.

Damn you one wheel peel!

Thought there would have been a bigger turnout, but still beats sitting at home. At least my wagon got quite a few thumbs up for it's looks.

Glad you guys had fun...wish I could have gone. John I will be going to WF, not sure about my shadow(s). Hope to see you and yours at WF.

My Roady looked pretty good (better than it has in awhile) but trying to get a good ET with that 3.23 open rear was challenging that night. My quickest run was my first and that was approx. three tenths slower than it's best and down about three mph .

Only my computer savvy wife can load the pics. Just pics of the two cars in the staging lanes, non of them racing.
Best et for my Roadmaster ever was a 15.54 @89mph.
John's little Chevy HHR only ran twice. 16.813 @ 80.37 mph, and 16.798 @ 80.95 mph.

I ran a best of 15.831 @ 85.94 mph.

Wish I'd had a, ummmm, oh I don't know, maybe a 3.73 posi. in it ...........but the "specialist" putting it together for me seems to be struggling.

We used to have a section for Drag Racing. but since it was highly under-utilized , it was deleted.
