Can you please give a brief explanation of this type of racing? I'm trying to ease into the motorcycle drag racing world, but I have no idea how these events work and how bikes are paired to race each other. Are there different categories of bike races at this event?

I will be there!

Its not just bracket/index racing. They will have grudge racing (races lined up between 2 parties for money), and test/tune. Its cheap/fun, but on the ghetto side if you are use to road racing.

Years ago this use to be a clay oval track called Big H. My step dad built and ran the track for many years till he prety much got tierd of it and sold it off.

"The facility, known as Big H Speedway when it was built as a dirt track in 1977 by Ed McDonald, hosted the World Of Outlaws sprint cars on a regular basis."

It's more than a little ghetto. The first couple events I though there was gonna be fights and riots. That ghetto talk sounds like fighting words to me. Brothers negotiate their races a little different than white folks. To me it all sounds like a drug deal gone wrong. There should be some good races though. It will be dark as

i agree with bluewave. it's definitely on the "ghetto" side but just keep to yourself and you'll be alright. i've met a bunch of pretty knowledgable people out there in the past. just my 2 cents
