Drag racing update
First of I thank everyone for their patience. As you likely know, we did have some more overnight rainfall in the area. I have been on the phone with Mike Savage (Atlanta Dragway manager) this morning and here is where we stand:

- Our planned start time of noon is off.

- Sometime between now and about 1 pm, and based on what happens with the weather system, the track management will have to make a call on the scheduled test and tune session for tonight. That schedule was gates at 6 pm and racing from 6:30-11 pm.

- If we can get in for a couple hours before the scheduled event tonight they will try to make that happen, but right now this is a long shot.

- If tonight's event does not get cancelled, we will get 2 lanes and preferential status

- If tonight gets cancelled, there is a POSSIBILTY of getting a couple hours tomorrow night. There is a big swap meet already paid for tomorrow from 7 am - 3 pm. This option would require more from us in terms of monies, catch me in person for more details.

Chappy, you could have raced yesterday! I know those turns and elevations are scary, but it was a bunch of fun!

Just got off the phone with Mike. As of right now the track plans to open tonight for the 6 pm event, and we will get our lanes. There is still a chance of rain this afternoon, so this plan is subject to change. If tonight rains out the track's plan is to move forward with tonight's event tomorrow same 6 pm time frame. He feels there would be time after the swap meet to be ready at 6.

The next firm update I will get will be at 3 pm today.

any updates!?!?!? I'm about to make my own dragstrip on I-85

I wouldn't advise that on i85. Lots of speed traps between mall of Georgia and commerce.
