Kompressorjon,

Seeing that you live in the opposite direction, it might be easier to meet everyone at the track but if you don't mind the drive and want to meet at IHOP, your more than welcomed. If you want(need)anymore info, just let me know.

Craig.

SilverML320,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I've been really busy at work.

The Dragway is about 30mins from IHOP. It's a nice ride up 95N. Plus, with a group of cars it should be even better, so bring your video camera.

So far the people listed plus about 2 others have said they were showing. I also think some of them are coming with friends with different cars.

BMW
Honda
Toyota (supra)
Pontiac (Firebird)

Thinking about taking the ride up from Philly. What will the cost be for the track? Any idea of area hotels for me to get a room for Friday and Saturday?
What is the address or name of the raceway or something in the area so I can mapquest it to see how far it is from me?

Kevin, that would be cool if you could join us. There are several hotels at reasonable prices in the area. I will get you a couple of #'s that way you can call and get the best price.

Fellors, I am sorry to say that the track might not be opened on April 2. I will check on this issue and keep everybody informed.

Track opening may be delayed Posted Monday, March 14, 2005 12:11 PM by nednews
It's that time of year when our phones are ringing off the hook and everyone
has a one question, "When are you going to open?"

What's the standard answer? It's "We don't know." We started several substantial projects including new burnout pads and a major drainage and resurfacing project at the end of our 2004 season. Fortunately, the weather was in our favor and we did complete the new burnout pads. However, the drainage and resurfacing project entailed a lot more work. Even though we finished most of the site work there is still considerable preparation remaining. Because of the persistent period of snow and extremely cold weather since the beginning of the year it's likely that we will not be able to complete the project before opening day. The snow must be clear and ground warm enough for us to accomplish the site work necessary before laying down the new asphalt.

We'll keep posting periodic updates here to keep you informed. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
