2024 rulebook might say stock spec tire size is 275 60 15 drag radials and super stock on 33 12.50 15 mud terrain LT radials. Sounds like that's what they are prepping the track for.

Good morning everyone, start time is 9:30... Junior's out first followed by Super Street and Stock for their 3rd round. Its cold this morning, current temp is 43, and only going up to the low 50's. I'm hitting the road today, I do have some more photos and will post when I get home. Its been a long 3 weeks on the road... good times posting for you all. Next race is the NMCA at Rockingham, NC April 14th-16th.

May do the Rockingham race as well instead of Reynolds the following weekend. Will be interesting to see how the new surface works out and if enough people skip Reynolds then it might serve as a message to NHRA. Depends on weather to some extent, probably a factor in why more didn’t attend SGMP including myself.

My G/SA Corvette usually hooks on ice and never spun all weekend. That said It picked up .04 in 60’ after they prepped the track. Needless to say I missed the dial. Mike McMahan 2543 G/SA

Thanks again Ken for all you do to keep us all informed about the races you attend.


Kudos to SGMP for addressing the traction problem at their track. It was a little late for some, but they listened to the comments and addressed the problem on Saturday and today.

Hi Tim
I had the same issue as you round one. Sorry you had a bad experience here in D2. I have been racing D2 for a long time and I can count on one hand the amount of times I have had traction problems at a D2 division race in recent years. . I don’t think it is a sign of the times. I don’t know if most know that SGMP is in the process of being sold so that could have had something to do with the lack of track prep. When I staged during round one I did not see any visible issues with the track. I was surprised when I spun and was a tenth off on my 60 ft time.

Am I missing something, but Marion Stevenson had a bye run in the 4th rd and then another bye in the semifinals. How is that possible and why doesn't the ladder get corrected so that there aren't any double byes? I have nothing against Marion, he's just racing the way NHRA tells him to.

I believe one was a legal bye and the other was a broke bye. You can only have one legal bye but as many broke byes as fate gives them to you. Jim

I believe if you are #1 qualifier you could get two byes if there is say a 33 car field, it would go 33,17,9,5,3. Tom
