Default Wanna Go Fast 2017

Hey guys,

That time of year again, registration for the Wanna Go Fast half mile event is coming up; opens up September 8th at 8:00am. Racing days are November 11 & 12.

https://wannagofast.com/?post_type=event&p=210

Exciting change for this year is that the event will be at Dallas Executive Airport, just south of town, instead of all the way out in Sulphur Springs. Looking forward to this year now that the car is finally running well.

Cheers,
-Michael

Is there a bone stock car division? I'm thinking my stock M5 will look like a terd.

No stock class, but the M5 definitely won't look like a turd haha. Its a fun mix that shows up, there will be cars running slower speeds than a stock M5. And it is honestly a hoot just getting out on the air strip and letting it rip.

It would take me about as long to drive to Redbird from here as it does to go out east to Sulphur Springs. Opps, I keep forgetting they call it "Dallas Executive Airport" now.

Scott, there is a 4 door division, RWD division, over 4000lbs division, any of which you could apply to. Your M5 should be faster than my 335 and I wasn't the slowest last year. Down toward the bottom, but not the slowest.

Awesome, I'll keep an eye out for your Z06. Definitely down to line up for a run.

That is moving out, you shouldn't have much trouble if we end up lining 'em up haha.

I unfortunately don't have a good slip to run off; I don't think I crossed faster than 100 last year. I got the car retuned in April though, I'll be pleased with anything over 150 based on what it put down.

Interested to see what you run. There has been a huge Caddy presence at this event in the past, Cadillac racing actually had a full display out last year. You should be in good company.

I didn't sign up this year since I haven't made any other performance changes to the car. Good luck to you guys that did.

The biggest surpise, at least to me, last year was a bone stock ZL1 A10 running 155. C7Z's weren't going that fast. V's were running 148's

Looks like we won't be at Dallas Executive after all. New airport is same distance for me, hopefully not a move in the wrong direction for any of you guys!

Also saw on the FB page that they are looking to make the track finish AWAY from the lake this year.

I had a feeling Redbird wasn't going to work out, probably due to the FAA. Looks like it's now going to be over at the old Navy Dallas. No idea what it looks like now. I haven't been there since we had an old ASR-8 radar on the site, and it was still the Naval reserve base.

Yea, they sent an email to participants saying they were going to end up having to take an extended break at lunch to let planes land. No breaks at the old Navy base.
