Default COPO shootout

I am looking for input about having a COPO shootout at Beacon Dragway in Paducah, Ky. We are thinking of having this race on August 16th. This is the week before the Beech Bend points meet . We are planing to pay $7500 to win, and the race will be run off of the then current 1/8 mile indexes. Also going to open the track for COPO only testing on Sunday and Monday, and rigs can stay at track until ready to go to Beech Bend or Indy. If we could get at least 8 cars to commit to this, I think we can make it happen . I mainly need opinions on our target date of the event; any other input would be appreciated as well.

You should introduce yourself as well, Gump. Perhaps Mr. Gass doesn't realize you're a COPO owner as we on here do.

And, yes, I might be interested in the race, but not the test session.

Gump I was one of the people that signed your license at bowling green, you may remember me now. the plan now is to run off of the then current 1/8 mile index, no dial under no breakout , does this sound good? We have also thought about a separate heads up race. We have also planned for the cars to run at legal weight with no fuel check.Thomas we would love for you to attend your to close not to attend!

The entry fee will be $200 . The payout will be $7500 to win,$2500 runner up,$500 semi, $250 quarter. If we decide to do a separate heads up race it will be a gambler format. I should also mention that the track owner is Keith Murt who owns a 2012 427 COPO . If anyone has interest in attending this event please post here or p.m. Me so we can see if we can make this event happen. Keith is also sending out emails to some of the owners he was in training with.

We would be interested but it would put us on the road for over 3 weeks. COPO Shootout, Bowling Green, then Indy.
