  • Drags at International Meet

    We have finalized Friday, June 22nd for the drag date at the International Meet in South Bend. They normally open the gates that day for test and tune at 4:00 pm. I asked if they could open at 3:00 on that day and was told they could open at 2:00 but probably would be close to 4:00 before we would be able to make runs as their help has other jobs and will not be able to get there much before this. So people can come at 2:00 or any time later they want.

    I asked several questions and here is some of what I was told:

    Races will be quarter mile.

    Any car running 13.99 or quicker will need a helmet.

    On seat belts, you should have them, but if completely stock they will be ok. I assume anyone with and R engine type car or one with a more powerful engine would have belts anyway and stock belts will be ok (unless an all out drag car, then they would need the harness belts, etc.).

    Catch cans will be required on all cars. These can be a plastic quart oil bottle with the overflow hose running into it or anything that will catch the water in case the radiator spills over.

    Any car with slicks must have a drive shaft loop.

    No passengers allowed (insurance rules will not allow passengers).

    $20 for car and driver

    $7 for spectators 12 and older

    $4 for 6 through 11

    Free for 5 and younger

    Concessions will be open

    We can race until nearly dark (which will now probably be about 9:00 pm.)

    I will try to get directions to the strip from the fairgrounds and from downtown and probably can get all this info in the June issue of TW.

    In case you have a question let me know and I will try to get an answer for you.

    How far is the strip from the site for the Awards Banquet and when will it start. In other words, will we have time for both?

        Don't know about the gas but I will find out. It is about 10 mile from downtown South Bend and yes, you will have time to get back for the banquet. I believe the banquet starts at 7:30 ao you could spend a minimum of two to two and a half to three hours at the strip and make it back for the banquet. I will find out the exact distance though to be sure.

        Fuel? Do they have a gas pump there with the good stuff?

                        I dunno- I think I'd look pretty sharp in a cheerleader outfit- great legs, you know (just ask Frank Drumheller!)... plus my niece said she had THE cheer for a Stude event:

                        U-G-L-Y You ain't got no alibi, you UGLY, yeah yeah you UGLY!

                        Wait a minute- just realized she didn't say if it applied to the cars or me.....
