Host hotel and local campground update

I'm currently in talk with Holiday inn Express (10906 NEW HAVEN ROAD HARRISON, OHIO 45030) which is about 15-20ish mins away from the track about being the host hotel. There is a super 8 across the street from this holiday inn with plenty of parking also. Also being right off the interstate, there is plenty of restaurants etc around. I will keep everyone posted if I can get a special rate worked out for everyone. Their are multiple hotels though around the track being so close to Cincinnati, Harrison Ohio etc. 

Miami Whitewater forest campground is the closest to the track only being 5 mins away from it. If you plan on camping this is probably you best choice for being close track.

Here is all class rules for confirmed classes and the draft rules for the Heads up shootout if enough interest and or sponsorship. Also car show will happen as usual. 

Bracket Racing all 1/4 mile:
AMC/Mopar - amc/Mopar body and or powered 
STICK SHIFT- any vehicle welcome, must be stick and use clutch pedal to launch and manually shift gears(don't have to use clutch on shifting gears) Basically UMTR rules.
2ND CHANCE- Any first round buybacks and any non amc/Mopar or stick cars. 

Heads Up Shootout (draft) :
Must be AMC/Mopar body 
Any powerplant, tire etc RWYB 
Can either be 1/8 or 1/4 (need racers interested in class to tell me) 
Can possibly do pro tree if ok by track and racers preferred
Racer decision clocks on or off (if ok by track)
I will say atleast a 8 car field would be preferred 
Entry fee(this class only) $100 winner take all plus sponsorship money. At a complete 8 car field locked in I will throw in $1000 on top atleast

Let me know on thoughts and suggestions for heads up class and interest. I know basically no other amc event does heads up stuff and I would love to do so as I love heads up racing.

I just bracket race....super pro....or whatever program the track has going.

As long as I am having a good time that's the main thing.

This actually made me laugh a little.....I WISH these events were only 6 1/2 hours away!


I am going to go this year.  I have never been to GAD. It's only 1-1/2 hours further than Cordova for me. I might not have my newest motor in yet but i can still run 9.0's all day long with my SR headed iron motor and it is a fun ride.

And of course get to meet new people and have fun bench racing, bulldunging, drinking beer (after the races are over) and hanging out.
:)

I plan on running 1/4 mile for every class, the heads up would be the only class that I have to decide on, and I might leave that up to the racers. I love 1/4 racing.

There web site says 1/8 and 1/4 drag racing on the track. It looks like a pretty nice place and an NHRA track. The only downer is the 6-1/2 hour pull.

1/8 is ok but prefer the 1/4 myself. Nothing better than pulling on the big end.

Crossing the line at 150 plus is just as much fun as the launch and the 60'
