Chicago Dragstrip

I was wondering if any chicago area mustang owners would be interested in picking out a day and have a track day, i usually race at route 66 and us41. I really dont mind what track it is although 41 you would get more passes. I do race every bracket race at 66 so if you wanted to come one of those days that would be cool.

What time were you thinking about meeting up? Im interested in going. Once you figure out everything let me know because i might need to call off of work to go.

It will be on Saturday April 14th idk know what time the gates open but I assume 11am or so, We would probably meet up at 9am eat and cruise to the track, best to get there early as tech takes along time there, and you don't want to be 100th in line

You would need a helmet, I usually bring a toolbox and stuff to snack on and lunch. It costs 25$ to race and 15$ to enter so 40$ all together and I'm sure you will have a blast the first time you go down the track.

Helmet for 13.9s or faster, and has to be Snell-05 or newer, don't bring a DOT helmet they will tell you to go home

I like going to 41 on the ultimate shootout nights , they always get a good crowd and a lot of cars.
