    This year we're back to August 20-22, 2010. We're always at the mercy of the Notre Dame football schedule and the Pro-Stock Race in Michigan.

    Mark your calendars!

    For you guys who go really fast, I have been told Osceola dragstrip is no longer IHRA. They switched to NHRA

    And to add insult to injury, Due to the NHRA sanctioning, the track is forced to be run 1/8th mile due to not having concrete retaining wall's(gaurd rails).

    I have heard that many of the local racers(regulars) will be contacting the owner of the track to express their feelings, and to inform her that they will not be racing there this year, they will be racing Martin US131 in Michigan.

    I hope for the sake of the track's well being, that Ruth will reconsider this move, and keep the track IHRA.
    If she doesn't switch back, I see this as the final year for this historic Drag Strip. The loss of income from the regulars will force the closing of this track, IMHO.

    I was wrong in my above post, still running 1/4 mi.

    Hope to see you there this weekend.
    I think we are for sure going to try to make the drive in Friday night,and if I get a couple quirks fixed with the car, I may make a couple passes Saturday.
