generally there is a race the first Saturday night every month. there may be others, but interest has fallen off a bit this year and they are working on building it back up. if I know any details I will post them here as will wheelszk when he / I can.

7 competitors in "formula" (not like F1):Bryan, Steven S, Robin S,Jay, Hank, Bill T, myself. I was near the last if not last.
same folks in "fairground" except I didn't have one, so I just marshalled.
I think Bryan won 'formula' and Robin S won 'fairground'.
rules, I am hazy on.
"formula"= t-jet with double flanged 'tuffy' size hubs and slip on silicone tires. weighted/independent fronts. balanced and trued 16 OHM armature, DASH magnets (Johnny L and AutoWorld allowed), any copper brushes and pickup shoes. and camaro, firebird, ....... resin bodies from a specific manufacturer (mine was provided by Hank). all parts might be brand/part number specific, I forget.
"fairgrounds"= stock t-jet with double flange front and back wheels and PVT "skinny" tires. again, I think the wheels are restricted to RTHO but I don't know part number. the resin bodies are brand specific, I think I heard 'thunderjet500' as manufacturer.

looks like July's Sat 7th race is gonna be fairgrounds and ECHORR Super Sport style.

hoping wheelszk posts better rules details and results of race.
someone is supposed to email me pix that were taken so I can post em up here.

that's all I know right now.
thanx for your interest and participation in Hanks Drag Racing. news about Fall Brawl will be posted soon. I don't have date yet, but I do have classes and rules for those classes.

Hey Bob, thanks for posting the results, now I don't have to.:) It was nice to meet you, hope you had a good time.Like you stated your cars are fast,so a bit more tweaking and you should have it. Come back anytime you are always welcome. Sorry I didn't say goodbye I got on the phone and then you were gone. Make a 9 tooth the same way you did the 14 and you will be set.
Again, thanks for posting.
