Exclamation Anybody, Drag Strip Tonight??

Im headed out to the one on Beltway 8 right before I-10. I think its called Houston Motorsports Park. I've been there a handful of times and really like it. Its a 1/8th mile so you dont have to worry about full leathers, deadman switch or other really tidious (sp?) restrictions. It's like 10 bucks or something like that so I'm goin to be there around 8 pm...anybody else?

Hey ZX6 Racer, I saw you at HMP......when that Harley busted your , the crowd went wild.....LOL

Sorry bro...I had to....

In your defense, that harley was pretty fast and no way was it stock.... Looks like you got plenty of practice runs in. I saw 1FastGSXR(Candi) there also.....she smoked a clutch and was quite off....:/: Good crowds tonight till the rain started.

yeah but i got him in the end on our last run......my take offs got better since that was the first time i had raced that bike. i had to get use to it. my fastest was when i beat the harley on the last race....i ran a 7.9 with a .53 reaction time. I know i can improve but not bad for a all stock bike

I had the 1000 parked right by the stands, right next to a green/white ZRX1200(Eddie Lawson replica). I wasn't racing, just riding with a group of guys. We were mainly hanging out in the pits with Paul(Swisher), Neil, Wash and those guys. We stayed till about 10p until the sprinkles started, then we hauled , wanted to get home before it hit hard. That was my 1st time to HMP......Pretty cool strip and crazy peeps out there. Good place to practice launches etc as you get a bunch of runs.


ZX6Racer, yeah its just a lot of practice bro...keep at it.
