The new name of the dragstrip is Kentucky Dragway. Owned and operated by Aaron & Carrie Sipple.
Jason Cook, Dallas Clark and Bob Rogers are all a big part of the program. Bob posts updates and/or old photos of the event on Facebook almost daily.

http//www.kentuckydragway.com

This year's format is Mopar Only!! Not like in recent years where it was Mopar versus the World on Saturday.

There will also be a free car show and swap meet like every year.

Camping on site is welcome.

The track is located at 718 11th St. Clay City, KY 40312 right off exit 18 on the Bert T. Combs Mountain Parkway.

Unfortunately, the new website doesn't have a list of hotels in the area and the old Mountain Parkway website is down now.

Winchester and Stanton are popular places to stay with Winchester being a little larger with more options. I will try to post more information on lodging soon. Anyone feel free to share your suggestions here.

Test & tune on Friday:
Gates open at 3PM
Tech starts at 5PM
Test & Tune 6-10PM
Cost $20

Saturday:
Gates open at 9AM
Tech starts at 10AM
Qualifying starts at 11AM
We will race 1/4 mile
Cost $40

Sunday:
Gates open at 9AM
Church Service 9:30AM
New Entry Time Run 10AM
Qualifying starts at 10:30AM
We will race 1/8 mile
Cost $40

Payout:
Winner - $500
R/U - $200
Semis - $75
Quarters - $25

I will give $10 back to first round losers and if you've never raced with us before I will pay your entry fee both days. :wink:

Post here or shoot me a PM to be added or removed from the list.

Come out and Run with the Slants!!

I'm probably a "no". Still don't have a car ready, or a way to get it there.

Thanks for the feedback and update assist folks!

I'll make a couple phone calls and send a couple emails and PMs and such.

It will be a fun time again.

There are other classes to run as well for folks wanting to get more laps in. :wink:
