Houston 1/8 mile race this weekend?

During the last TXSHOOTOUT event someone was walking around passing out a pink flyer with an 1/8 mile event for this Sunday I thought. It would be a Houston area event and if I recall it was motorcycles only. Anyone remember the details? I thought I kept the flyer but tore the trailer apart last night looking for it and never found it.

Red_Rocket. . Nice setup what you run on the track.. I gotta stock 05 ZX12, was at HMP last night I was running consistant 6.6s all night @ 111mph, no engine work just lowered with a shinko drag radial. .. If you find out about sunday let me know I"m interested in going for sure. .

It was mostly a harley event but there were like one or two sport bike classes I believe. I lost my little flyer too, but I had talked to the guy that was passing them out and he said there were a few classes we could run but mainly harley racing. All bracket style for sportbikes.....no heads up so count me out. Im headin out to HRP tonight though if anyone is down.

yeah I was sittin outside and saw the UPS truck drive by I was liek WHAT!?! cause the lady on the phone at the UPs center said they wern't running today.. SOOO anyways, I guess I'll get it tommorrow.. hopefully... I went ahead and ran with just the new sprocket I got, my best time was a 6.3@114.. After a few 6.3 runs my clutch started slipping, I launch at like 9K and on my last 2 runs that slipped all the way to revlimit I eased off till it gripped and ran 6.4 . . So its new clutch time .. YAY, but I"ll try to be out next weekend with a new clutch and HOPEFULLY the swingarm. .

For anyone out there watching I was the (STOCK) black ZX12 : ) .. .
