    A customer told me that there is Drag Racing at Dutchess County Airport approx Aug 16. I was wondering if anyone has heard of this? I think open header cars would make more noise than the small planes that use the airport.

    Steve sent this and said to share it with you !…

    Dear Car Enthusiast,
    This is a personal invitation to the upcoming Ultimate Street Airstrip Event, hosted
    exclusively by UltimateStreet.com. Either a few trustworthy individuals or myself have
    hand picked every single guest that will be in attendance. This is a private event held
    without the presence of any spectators.
    Our last event, held on June 27th of 2009 was a huge success. I would like to personally
    thank all who were present for their support. We are committed to offering exotic and
    high performance cars owners the proper facilities to utilize their vehicles, such as race
    tracks and runways. We are expecting at least two more events in 2009 alone.
    The upcoming Ultimate Street Airstrip Event is a photo and video shoot organized and
    funded by Ultimatestreet.com. The purpose of this meet will be to gather video footage of
    high end and high performance cars for an internet show that will air once a week. Each
    episode will feature cars from our events. The owners of the cars will also be featured in
    interviews that we will conduct.
    The admission fee for this event is $45 per car and $10 for each additional guest. Your
    admission covers your track use and your meals for the entire day! Please limit your
    guests to 3 people per car including the driver. Some Benefits for car owners include:
    • Food and drinks for the day. ( No Alcohol)
    • After initial video shots are obtained, owners can race other cars.
    • Cars and guests from the event will be featured on our weekly episodes.
    • Great networking between high end and high performance car owners.
    The Ultimate Street 3 Airstrip Event will be a 2 day affair, featuring two different classes
    of cars:
    Saturday August 15th- High end and Exotic cars such as Ferrari, Porsche, BMW,
    Mercedes, Audi, Lamborghini, Jaguar, Nissan GTR, Dodge Viper, Corvette, Lotus.
    Sunday August 16th- American Muscle Cars and Import Tuner Cars.
    The event will be held at the Dutchess County Airport on August 15th and 16th, with a rain
    date of August 27th and 28th. Both of those dates are on the weekend. If you are
    interested in attending, please call me at 404-583-4873 to book your spot. So congrats
    for being selected, and we look forward to seeing you!
    Regards,
    Steve Ono

    Hey Guys,
    Sorry about the last minute email…
    The address to the airport is:
    263 New Hackensack Rd. Wappingers Falls, NY 12590
    http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=dutchess+county+airport&um=1&ie=UTF-8&split=0&gl=us&ei=lyaGStLxC4qBtwfN6NjnDA&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=image&resnum=1
    DO NOT try to enter the facility through the main entrance. If you are in the main parking lot, you must make a left out of the lot, make a left at the light, and make a the first left on to the service road and observation lot. There will be signs displaying the way.
    Thanks for all of the support and interest in our event. Its going to be a great time.

    Yeah’ I took drive over to check it out. Pretty cool event,around 100 cars (don’t know the exact number).
    Distance was maybe… 1/8th mile. No christmas tree,no times or speed…could have been street racing.
    LOTS of burnouts,donuts and smoke. $20 to watch and $45 to race and best of all,for me, about 25 minutes away!
    I didn’t take any pictures,but will put together a small video to post on my jmb442 youtube site.
