They have test & tune about every Wednesday night out at Lucas Oil Raceway. They have a schedule on their website. I think they skip a few Wed's for whatever reason. The next time I go might be September. Honestly, it scares me to death because it's my daily driver, so I try to space them out.

That's pretty cool! I certainly don't remember the 82 - 92 V6's having that big of a pair, so they must not have been 3.8's.

I haven't seen many verts out there. I'm not sure about rules for them. They do have a the rule for helmets for under 13.99. I've been lucky so far being just under that. The guy said its up to the people who give you your time slip. They've been cool chicks the times I've ran.

I think they're talking about Chicagoland further up north. If I go, I may not run, it depends. I was sweating it big time today cause I really wanted ~13.5. So, I should probably change her oil and tranny fluid

I definitely wanna know if everyone goes cause I wanna try and make it.

Man, I must have cheap brake pads. This dirt is from one day of driving and three passes at the track. I know I'm stopping fast from ~104MPH, but dang! Also, I remember smelling my brakes when I picked up my slips.
