HRP is Baytown, 1/4 mile


HMP is off the beltway 1/8 mile.

In all honesty, jump for HMP so you get more pulls in... Friday nights get here early before the crowd (is it still 5 to watch, 10 to drag?) before the big groups show up. Watch the crowd cuz they drink heavy there.

HRP will give you the full professional stands/run etc blah blah but ur runs will be so few... Especially on a posted night like the ones we did... think I did three with that bad chain on the first drag day MH did.

the sealy track is a 1/4 mile now. when hennessey bought it, that was the first thing he did to it. that's the closest track to you.

Sealy was awesome; I heard they reopened but soon Hennessy is changing the strip into part of the road course for the vipers he's building.

If you go to HRP in baytown go on a sunday and get there when it opens. You can run as many times as you want alot of times. Fri. nights i would go somewhere else unless you like to sit in the staging lanes for 1/2....no 3/4..... maybe 15/16 of the night....might get two or three passes out of the whole night
