Good news, Rob is going to try and get a RAISSE event for 2013 in late July. He’s going to ask for Saturday, July 27th. With Island Dragway probably out of the picture, we got back in with ETown and Keefer booked a bunch of dates for us. Hey, it’s better than nothing regardless of what we think of ETown in the past. The new girl at ETown has been very nice to us and has promised us good treatment. She remembers us and likes us.
So we are all on the same page, and for planning purposes, here are the locked in or at least pretty solid dates for 2013. See below. For those still trying to plan races, I see openings in mid April, mid-May through mid-June, mid-July, 3rd week in August, and any of the first 3 weeks in October.
Sat, March 30 – Cecil County Dragway, Rising Sun, MD - NSHS2 and 1st ECIRS race – sponsored by ECIRS
Sat, April 13 - Capitol Raceway, Crofton, MD - WAIL Drag Day - sponsored by Wesson Computer Associates
Sat, April 27 – ETown, Raceway Park, NJ – Gramby Cold Air Drag Day - sponsored by Mr. Fred Gramby
Sat, May 11 - 75-80 Dragway, Monrovia, MD - East Coast Impala Open (ECIO) - sponsored by WAIL

Sat, Nov 2 – Atlanta Dragway, GA, - SSHS13 - Southern Super Heavy Shootout 13 - (we have ETown reserved but will cancel that date)
Sat, Nov 9 – ETown, Raceway Park, NJ – it’s the last day ETown is open for the season so if we get rained out/cancelled we need a backup plan - we have this date reserved, any ideas? Fun Runs? Mopar vs Ford vs Chevy Challenge? Import Challenge? ECIRS Grudge Runs?
