    All You have to do is follow the Shut down area to the Bar. That Has been done before. :laugh: (Billy Bunch, from Texas City, Vega Funny Car.)
    As I stated, in the other thread, Unless You are running in the 8s (1/4 mile) You really won't be that bad.


    For those that have not been to Temple, it is part of the old Highway, and the is a bend in the shutdown area, heading back to the actual road.
    Very interesting Old Time Drag Strip. You come out of the staging lanes, turn about 180*, up a hill (not as big as Quaker) and You are on the Strip.
    Not any "Flash" just an Old time Drag Strip. Dirt & rough area for pits, but Trees & Shade, and a Lot of Fun.

    My favorite part of the staging lanes is the burnout box, they throw a gallon of water under tires to get burnout going. Unorthodox but works well!

    Most definitely interested. Little River is always a good choice and we've had some fun times at previous Bashes... Probably have a few pictures to prove it!

    Thanks Steve. Looking for about 50 cars between this forum and the TR crowd.

    I would be in for sure. Temple seems to be a great central area and a good old track! I think a Saturday for sure. One of the last ones was on a Sunday which makes it hard for people out of town to travel back home after.

    The parking lot party at the hotel afterwards is part of the fun too!:beer

    The track is set it will be Little River Dragway just outside of Temple. The date will be in April or May 2014 on a Saturday. It will be mid November before I get a exact date, I will it post up when it is set.

    I'd sure like to come and race, anywhere in Texas would be closer than towing to Bowling Green or Ohio :laugh: They tried having a few BOP get togethers out here at Speedworld and the Buick showing was typically 5 cars or less :ball: Maybe you can get Mike T to get the wagon running again and make the tow east!

    On my calendar. Now to figure out which Buick of ours shows up! Tyler needs to set a new record in the red car maybe.

    Got it marked on my calendar as well and looking forward to it. Noticed a little coolant under the car this weekend and the fan was little wobbly. Good thing to catch before a race weekend, what else can I do to it while I'm in there!

    I'll be there, and invite several other Buick owners. Drag racing only, correct?

    Thanks David and everyone at LSPBC.
