The next race for the 2022 season will be at The Legendary Farmington Dragway (Too Tough to Tame since 1963) in Mocksville, NC the weekend of 22-23 July (Fri/Sat).

Friday July 22nd Gates open at 5pm and testing starts at 6pm. Gate entry fee to race is $10. We will be running with Test N Tune, Motorcycles, and Street Class.

Saturday July 23rd Gates open at 8am on the track 10am! Gate entry fee to race is $15. We will be running with their Points Series Racers and the Classic Gear Jammers.

Seymour has donated for 2022 purses, so he and I will provide the purse money.

Payouts:

Winner - $100
Runner Up - $50
Semis - $25
(Same Payout for each day)

Since the gate entry fee is about $10-20 less than most other events, we can collect an additional amount from racers for more pay outs if there is a consesus.

Roll Call:

Rob Simmons (just watchin' & coordinatin' & schtuff)
Rick Covalt (if more than just he and I show up)
Lou Madsen (If he has a car ready and all is OK with his new family)
Mark & Regenia Charapich


C'mon folks... this ain't lookin' real good... we need some more folks to

Come out and RUN with the Slants!!!

I'd suggest $20 from each of the drivers to add to the purse. I plan on coming if there is more than just me and Rob! :D :D

I plan to be there, assuming I have a car ready and all is OK with my new family. Sounds like a ball!

I'd really like to come to some of these races, whether as a spectator, or possibly even maybe provide some "pit crew" assistance/ but I'm in "prison".... It's costing me nearly $25/day just in fuel to go to work, let alone any maintenance on my vehicles or any other running around I need to do/ or any that I would like to.... but I'm stuck here for the time being/ either til my pay doubles, as the price of fuel has in the last year and a few months/ or someone "in a position of control" does something to pop this bubble...
for the 1st time ever, the town I live in has broken $5/gallon for the "cheap" stuff.... I am so pissed, there is absolutely NO REASON for this ripoff, gouging, screwing...

There's a bunch near Mocksville at the us601/ i40 Junction.
Also one over in bermuda run at the nc801/ i40 junction.

I have always camped at the track, so I don't know if any are good or not.

We are about 6 weeks out from the Farmington race with only three tentative racers...

Don't make me find a Slant 6 car to race and wind up taking all that purse money home with me...
(I s'pose if I do, it'll just make the Clay City purse that much bigger...)


Bueller...? Bueller...? Bueller...?

There has to be a lot more sign up for me to come. There are plenty of locals down that way. They may be sleeping like my Mason Dixon locals were! :D

Honestly, I am struggling to justify 70 gallons of gas at $5+/gallon , a room , entry....etc. Plus I have been off work for a week and a half with my hip / back issues. Let's hope to hear from a bunch more.

Hey!! Hold up there, Mr.!! :shock:

You said,... And I quote:

Lou and the Charapiches are "more than just you and Rob"...

I ain't sayin',... I'm just sayin'... :lol:

I get it. Looks like this will be our worst year in the history of the series. C'est la vie!

I s'pose this'd be a good year to walk away with the championship if'n sumbudy just showed up to a couple races...

Hey Rick, check out my recent post in Social Corner about it being pricey these days... That'll make ya feel better about 70 gallons... :shock: :lol:

If there are only 3 of us, I'll just send each of them a $100 and call it a day. I'd still be $400 ahead :D

It is not just racing, there isn't much going on here on the board either. We need some excitement to kick in from somewhere. :) :)

Agreed. I wish I had more time/energy to stir the pot, but my new family is a high priority. I am working on some cool Slant hardware, and should have more fun incarnations to race soon... Maybe I can help Brian get his Duster running this summer too.

Hope to see you all at Farmington!

Lou

I'm still planning to come if fuel is not $8 a gallon, and there is more than just me? :) Hope some of the locals will come out!
