It's time to talk about the 2017 Southern Fryed Drag Tour. It had been suggested that the season was too long, so we shortened the season to 12 races. We ran any type of drag car, didn't enforce the "post a build diary", yet our entries dropped to 10, from 25 the previous season. What went wrong?

The season is planned to begin Feb. 11th, the week after the Super Bowl. Comprise of 12 races in 13 weeks, with a bye week on Easter. Is this too late?

Any suggestion?

Who's interested in competing next season? maddr

Wisconsin "Wizzo" Don, I have at least two entries for the series. Should something happen and I not be able to finish them I have a couple I could enter off my shelf. I can't speak for the rest.
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.

I think your proposed schedule sounds good. As for the drop in entries, the overall traffic here has decreased the past year. Two years ago we had teams entering multiple car, some up to 3 or 4. Many of those folks sadly don't stop by here very often.
For me I'm doing good to just get one car finished on time :lol:

You have a point there Kevin. I do miss those rascals from the Bayou Bengal Racin Team.

Guess I'm just disappointed that the series champions don't return to defend their championships.

Hope you get your ride completed on time. There is almost 6 months left. We appreciate your participation on this site. You always have excellent cars. rrr

Anyone, besides Kevin, building a straight liner for 2017? .?. It would be great if you would post some build pixs in the
Drag forum.

Only 4 months to go. :unsure:

Daveman, the 2017 SNRA Southern Fryed Drag Tour will start it's seventh season on Feb. 11, 2017. The 2016 season will consist of twelve races, starting on February 11th in California and ending May 6th in Florida. The 2017 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 2017 entry thread.Content_2.gif

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask for more info.

Last year's winners, the crew at Historic Racing Associates will commit to getting at least one newly completed race car at the line by the first meet. If possible we'll enter a second car from our collection as well. In a pinch we could run The Silver Slipper for a second season but we would rather not.
Keep on buildin'

Definitely would rather have individual photos as stated, so that I can do proper race reports. If you only post pixs of your car in the garage or with other cars, that's the way it will always be seen. Think of them as PR pixs, portraits, or advertising.
