MotoHouston - Royal Purple Day 1/4 mile Drag Racing Feb 24th!!!!

A few years back we took a day and we all met up at the strip and had a TON of fun. Lets do this again.

Street bikes...
Track bikes..
Drag bikes.

We can have friendly (or not so) grudge matches. Im sure I can even get sponsors to throw in prizes.

So, first of all we need a date.

To all the "Drag racers" who frequent the track, what would be a good "day" for us to go? Friday night? Saturday? Sunday?

If you are interested in something like this add your name to the list. And it doesnt matter if youve never been before, its all about fun.

LEGAL STREET RACING

Time:6:00 pm - 12:00 Midnight
Location: Drag Strip

Friday Night LEGAL Street racing is where you can race your friends or pit your car against the world famous timers on the fastest quarter-mile on the planet.

"NO COPS...NO TICKETS!!!"

Car & Driver: $20
Spectators: $10

Children 12 & Under: FREE

Friday will have to work. We do need to get people who have never tried it out there. I tried it for the first time as a MH group. I was instantly hooked. I had to ditch the 600 and get a Busa. Then I had to get Nitrous. Then I had to build a motor. LOL

run with cars.

However, Im sure we could rent the track if we had enough. But I think a friday night street race would be fun.

It would be even better to see some cars running also.

A valid NHRA Competition license is required for any vehicle running 9.99 (6.39) or quicker.
All motorcycle riders are required to wear a full face helmet meeting above Specs, leather jacket, leather boots/shoes above the ankle, and leather gloves. Full all leathers or SFI Spec 40.1/2 suit is mandatory on all motorcycles running 120 mph or faster.

DONT WORRY ABOUT THE SPECS

A decent rider can bust 120 on a 60

If you only have a leather jacket you can run in jeans and a jacket with boots and gloves. You just cant bust 120

I will volunteer to answer questions if I can. I know it can be intimidating to do this the first time. I can answer most questions about track conditions, bike prep, gear, speeds, ect. PM me if you have a question that cant be answered by READING THEIR WEBSITE
