Did Billy say 3 day event, I love 3 day events :D The 2 days go by so fast it would be cool to have 3 days, keep the bookings going Dino. We do everything we can to extend our stay, come early and stay late. The A/FX cars could maybe use an extra day to practice, seeing they don't get out that much like they did in the past. We'd be right there to watch.

Good question K-Man! Talk about putting on a show,and 'blasting' down the 1/4 mile! As a 'Willy's Nut', I miss seeing the ' Under Pressure' Willys put on a show! A few year's back was a 'memorable' experience, seeing him and 'Tiny's '55', go at it,match racing at the 'Valley' You could hear the echo in the distance, of that old AA/GS sound in your ears, as they tore up the strip!!! Life is good!!! :geek: :o :D :D :D Mr.Pete.

Got It Covered
See This topic:
viewtopic.php?f=70&t=4793
.... Not adding "that" many rounds...Most are just being moved from from one group to another ...actually same round count as last year
Of Note: TO Cut down Rounds on sunday and save almost an Hour...He will tell NETO ,East Coast Gassers and Nendra , they'll get only one time shot on sunday. They do this already on thier two day dates....so no problem there.Also Tech Gates open at SEVEN.In 8 years we never had a oil down delay like last year so ...I'm believing it won't happen again....got the word out to find Bryan also ."Cakes" ...I think Jim Oddy and his his gang will cure your Willys Fix.Oh...Mas...Runor has it you may be driving something cool.

Dino, that AA/GS show with the 'living' gasser legend, Jim Oddy, should be "FANTASTIC", to say the least! I've watched them,on You Tube, and Jim's '33' Willys sedan, called 'The Junkyard Dog', is 'bad-ass' ! Another one I admire is Jeff Cryan, who restored and runs the '33' blue Willys P/U, that belonged to Ron Bizio, from California. What I admire,it's 'heads-up' racing, and 'period. correct engines, trans. and rears ( NO electronics!), abiding by the '67' N.H.R.A rule book! This alone,is worth the admission,for the show they'll be putting on for us!!! No dissapointments!!!! :o :roll: :D Mr.Pete.
