2019 Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race
 
This event will be the 25th anniversary of the PSMCDR at Mid-Michigan Motorplex north of Stanton, MI on September 12, 13, & 14. We'd love for anyone that wants to join the fun and see what all the fuss is about to bring your stock muscle car, or Pontiac sleeper...and if you can't bring a car to race, then come watch all the action instead. Don't worry about being the quickest and fastest, but have fun learning how to tune and race your car. It is the best fun you can have at any car event!

Thursday (12th) is early tech, Friday (13th) is tech and time trials, Saturday (14th) is warm-up runs and pairing races (best two of three) of the closet matched qualifying et's. Check out our website for the rules and other particulars at PSMCDR.com.

Feel free to PM me with any questions. Thanks!

no love for the one wheeled wonder, lol it's not a standout .... yet.

I'll be there, as usual, debuting a new car. I am VERY excited. restoration took four years.

this event is the most fun you can have with your cloths on

SD455DJ 08-30-2019 12:56 PM

Chris - I didn't find any pics of your Firebird on-line, actually the PSMCDR images link. Please post one of your F-body...everyone may contribute to the thread.

Can't wait to see the new racer!

hmm, interesting

from the article in HMM about last years race

SD455DJ 09-02-2019 09:37 AM

Chris....you got me there! I forgot about the HMM article with your 68 in the intro. I was just looking through the pics in the "Images" link when I googled PSMCDR. I did this rather quickly so may have overlooked a pic of your Bird if it was in there. I did find quite s few of your GT-37!

GTO's are many at the races and all years are well represented except for 1972, 1973, & 1974. I will say the Jody Trayler brought the only '72 and '74 to the race that I recall.

The early Tri-power Goats have run solidly in the mid to low 13's (no 12's as IIRC), the '67 RA GTO's have run hi-12's, '68.5 RAII's very low 12's, '69/'70 RAIV's mid to low 12's, '71 455HO's mid to high 12's, and the sole 455HO '72 of Jody's in the low 13's with potential for mid 12's easy with more seat time.

GT-37's are gaining popularity and exposure with Paul Glasgo's '70 Magnum 400 and Chris Smetana's '70 400 GT-37 running solid mid 12's and the sole '71 GT-37 (400/4-bbl/TH400) running low 14's.

We have many RAIII GTO/Judges that run from the hi 12's to the mid 14's in various stated of prep and tune.

Chris, your GT-37 hasn't been retired, has it? Love to see it run.

Been a few months since I spoke with an Olds friend of yours from down this way. Matt mentioned he would be in attendance with family this Sept. Am still trudging along with bodywork, looking fwd to making the trip. 2021 is the hard goal for my red car.

Semi-retired. I have a 68 Firebird which will eventual get the same treatment as my GT-37, improvements every year. This year I'm debuting my 69 Cutlass W-31, a car I've been wanting to race at PSMCDR since I spectated in 1999. Life got in the way. Four year ago I started the rotisserie restoration and that has finally been completed. The GT-37 recently had the top end of the motor refreshed. I'm planning to take it to a race in Maryland next month. I'm leaning towards bringing it back to Stanton in 2020.

Yes, Matt mentioned meeting up with you. He and the family made the trek up to Martin, MI for the FAST/Factory Stock race this past May/June. I let him take the Firebird down the track a couple times. He's hooked. Never drove the car before, but managed 14.99

The Pure Stocks Drags are Still On!
 
It looks like some wet weather for Friday, but SUNNY and nice for Saturday. We are hoping to see you there at the Mid-Michigan Motorplex just NE of Stanton, MI for lots of great drag racing and Fun.
