Looks like the weather forecast is favorable for good drag racing...sunny with highs in the mid-70's and no rain. We'd love to see a great turn-out of Pontiacs at the race. The itinerary for the event:

Thursday - early Tech all day until 5 pm (no spectators)
Friday - Tech & Time Trials/Qualifying all day until 5 pm
Saturday morning - pairings announced & warm-up time trials
Saturday afternoon - Shootouts

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Dennis

Thanks for the link to the video. That's Bob Ashton's son and granddaughter that made the video.

Also thank Dan Jensen and Lyndon Hughes, fellow partners in putting on the Pure Stocks!
