Default Live Ohio S/SS Nationals

In route from Pittsburgh to National Trail. Weather looks to be great high of 70 and sunny with TTs starting at 11. It will be 1/8 mile racing on the new surface. Should be a great day I will try to upload some photos when we get there.

Great car count today as there are roughly 50 s/ss cars here. I was unable to upload some pictures so I will try again later. I guess the file size is too latge? Hopefully someone else who made the trip can share some images/information. Just finished round one. A good portion of the higher hp cars are having some traction issues. Most likely some dial for the spin strategies.

The 1st Ohio S/SS Nationals turned was a great event. A big thanks to Jack Porter for putting up the guaranteed purse. Not to many places you can race for $5K for $100. Plus it was only a one day event. I think there ended up being around 58 cars. The new owners of Cols have made a lot of improvements over a very short time. I think by the NHRA D3 points meet this summer the track will be in great shape. We will definitely be there for the second race at Dragway 42 and hopefully we do a little better. I ran into a buzz saw 2nd round. B Kelly was .007 dead 4.

$100 for a guaranteed $5,000 to win, $10,000 total purse... and 58 cars show up. Shocker.

I very much appreciate Jack Porter putting up a great purse for us to run for, and thanks to Terry Knott for letting me drive the Dart Sport again. I was really rusty, but it turned out to be a good day, and had a great time.

Wow! Over 300 posts on this thread already with all the comments about how great the improvements are at the track, and how great a deal it is to pay $100 entry for a $10,000 purse.

Oh, I'm sorry. It's not over 300 posts. It's 2. smh...

Much agreed Michael. Why did S/SS racers not show up. I've heard "it's 1/8 mile". Can't race 1/8th for 5K to win??? Really???
I think the timing of the race may have hurt. With the Divisional at Norwalk this weekend, Sportsnationals the following week and the Route 66 divisional after that. But really, if you are anywhere close why would you not run ? Is time off from work? is a matter of money? Saving funds to run 2 or 3 NHRA races in a row?
May have been too early in the season. One racer told me he had not been out yet and needed to test on a 1/4 mile track.
Michael, you know more than anyone there are several reasons. Hopefully more will attend the June 17th race at Dragway 42. I think they will, especially with it being a new facility.
