Just curious. How many of you do NOT plan to run your Z on the drag strip this summer?
Yes, it is the Performance King but I bet some are not interested in running it on the strip.

BTW, yes, I plan to!

I drove 180mph Junior Fuel dragsters. I gotta say drag racing is in my blood!!

I said I would never Drag Race again, but I feel I gotta take the Z to St. Louis International at least once...I got to get ready to blow gphlepsens doors off when we have a grudge match at the Cruise-In.

Boss lady says I am NOT going to do any drag Well, I will be at the starting line and I WILL put the hammer down!!

I will do a little Drag racing just for fun and just to see what I can run. I am basically in to the Auto-X and possible some Road racing.

Been twice already. Best is a 13.13 112 at Albuquerque (5600ft). Corrects to 12.21 at 120mph at sea level. It's OK, but autocross and road racing is where the real fun is.

I have been drag racing since the late 60's and will definitely take my Z to Moroso in WPB Fl. soon. See my post on the CorvetteForum for my patented non-breakin method. My car(s) scream!

Running at the strip is the only racing I do!

Will be at the track when the weather permits! I like to run my cars in any way they can be-so for the Z that means drags, autox and road course too!! Starting to really like road courses more and more...

Dave P:

Great idea about the drag day! Are you a member of the Corvette Club of Michigan? They regularly have a day at Milan, and Waterford Hills each year. Club meets at Stanford Chevy Service area on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm. See you on the 28th? I plan on driving the Z.
