The 2016 SNRA Southern Fryed Drag Tour will start it's sixth season on Feb. 13, 2016. Due to suggestions and requests, the 2016 season will consist of twelve races, starting on February 13th in California and ending May 7th in Florida. The 2016 SNRA Southern Fryed Drag Tour is open to any newly built or rebuilt, purpose built drag racing car or truck. NO bracket racers nor motorcycles will be accepted this year.


There will be the another thread in which to enter, post pics of your car, and post pertinent information. As in the past, you will have to furnish your quarter mile ET and MPH that you obtain from the following site:

Calculate your ET and MPH here.

Just input your car's weight and flywheel HP, then hit the calculate button. Your entry will be considered incomplete without this information.

Then post your entry as a reply in the pinned 2016 entry thread.:lol:

Feel free to ask any questions.

Sounds good Wizzo. The Podunkville nit-wits will be on hand again, if you can put up with them. Leonard Leadbetter and Heckpussy Laflamme have teamed up with a new car----that should be a show all on its own. Roy Takahashi has a new ride---an Oldsmobile. Can you say "Heavy:? Don't forget, Roy is Irish or he will let you know. Del Hoyt will be back and Agnes' granddaughter, Emily will fill her spot. There is some talk going around she has a 440 Dart. Don't know yet what Del will enter but I am sure it will be as odd ball as he is. Looking forward to the tour!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ordinarily I am insane, but I do have lucid moments where I am merely stupid.
I never TRY to hit another car. But when I do I make sure its a Prius.

Had to switch horses in the middle of the stream. Creeb my engine builder (FORD man until death) refused to work on another Bowtie engine, even though the late-model we ran a couple years ago did win a feature and finished quite well in the points. So we went on a search for something FORD powered. We stumbled across a tube chassis small bodied car with no motor or drivetrain, which we picked up for a song. Creeb is working his magic on a 351 c.i. and the rest of the crew is slaving over getting more tubes in the chassis to make it safer and legal for the series. It is snowing here today, Church has been cancelled, so I have a couple of hours to work on it - at least until Football starts. Will also try to get some pictures up of what has been accomplished so far.

Very Important Update
The deadline for entering the 2016 season opener will be 6:00PM CST on Thursday February 11, 2016.

Due to the fact that I will literally be out of town, and not sure of my wifi connections nor how many entries there will be, I will need some lead time to get the race results posted on time. So, I will need to cut off race entries for the 2/13/16 race at the end of the business day on Thursday 2/11/16 at 6:00PM CST. That's two weeks away.

Please ENTER as soon as possible.

Thanks.

Since my fabricators enjoyed themselves (and are still in mourning) way too much following the big game last weekend and haven't returned to work yet; and the heat has gone out in the garage (the basement is too cold and the prediction is for low double digits going to single digits by this weekend) I am having to drag (no pun intended) out an old standby from the Johnson Racing Museum and Whoopee Parlor. This will be replaced by the Escort as soon as Elmo and Bertrand get over the Carolina Panther's loss and can see straight again. I told them that stuff they bought from the guy in the hopped up Nash Metropolitan would knock their socks off :P ; but, would they listen to exper...I mean reason - NOO!
Anyway here is my interim entry.
1941 Willys Pick-up
383 c.i. Hilborn Injected Small Block Chevy (Creeb ain't none too happy 'bout that)
ET - 9.35
MPH - 144.46
Crew:
Creeb - Engine (by force)
Tommy - Fabrication (he left for a MOPAR team after building this one and I somehow got stuck with Elmo and Bertrand)
Homer - Chassis and Suspension
Driver: Ricky
Owner: Johnson Racing (and Whoopee Parlor)

There are only about 30 hours left to enter the first event of 2016.

Great to see some more entries. fbr Make sure you enter on time and in the right place

Where are your entries IAracefan, dirttrackdave, Mrchevyblack, USMC E5, Bayouman, Dr. Kerry, and the rest? If you're already on the road, don't forget to enter on time.

We should get to the track about noon on Thursday. The track weather should be sunny and 80 all weekend. Can't wait.
