jextreme, are you Australian
Just adding my 2-cents about the bike racing at Carolina Dragway. I have been invoved in racing bikes for some 20+ years.Like many of you I'm sure I've had my fair share of being treated as 2nd class citizens at car races for being on a bike. From being pitted in the dirt or mud to being rushed to get us "out of the way", you name it.
I have never been treated better or more fairly than at Carolina Dragway. The owners and entire staff and crew are some of the best people you would ever want to meet. The racers, car and bike alike are terrific and very supportive of each other. As some of you who race the SEMDRA series can attest the facility ranks among the very best the Southeast has to offer regardless of sanctionig body. There's a reason why more than a few racers drive hours and past other tracks to make Carolia Dragway, "The House of Hook" their home track! Go to the web site, check the schedule, and come join us if you can.

Not australian but i've heard they have a 10:1 ratio of women to men sounds like heaven to me lol.
There was a couple of things in his post that sounded a bit "Aussie"....lol...sorry guys....oh hey, if you find the area where it's 10:1 ratio can you post it up...we might move.....LOL
Drag racer, you're looking on the wrong side of the map. Flip it over mate, we're on the other side....
Hehehehe no problem man or should I say mate.That was just something I heard may be no truth to it lol.If you find that place send me a plane ticket lol.Atleast now I know if I were to go to AustraliaI would fit in lol.Except for the redneck accent hehehe.
Thanks for the correction Greig,
Hmmm, thats right, you guys are upside down on this map. Or is that right side up. Lol.
Onemore important thing i forgot to post aboutthe SummitSuper Series
Hey guys/ladys, you really need to check this out- time is running out!!!
I just pulled this article off the IHRA website- its worth reading.
I actually won the "box class" at Carolina Dragway last season. The car guys about crapped when i pulled it off with a bike. That $1000 i won sure came in handy for more race parts. This seasons format is even better. All you need to do is sign up before Feb 4th. Carolina Dragway wil actually pay for your SSS "X" number. Just join IHRA for $55, sign up for Carolina Dragway points and you 've got a shot at $1000 on a local track level and could even go on to race at the ROck. Check out the program below.
NEW FORMAT ANNOUNCED FOR 2006 SUMMIT SUPERSERIES WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
In 2006, the Summit SuperSeries is taking on a new format… one that is sure to catch the attention of all IHRA member track competitors. This season, each participating track’s Performance Rating (P.R.) champion will race P.R. champions from other tracks to determine the “Elite 8” field of Box and No Box finalists for the World Championship race.
The groundbreaking program will continue to use the 30 round P.R. ranking system, but instead of having to have one of the top 6 scores in the nation, as was the case in 2005, a racer will simply have to be the P.R. champion at their home track in order to race for the championship this year.
Each track P.R. champion will square off at the Summit Team Finals in their respective division. The champion of the race will earn their way into the eight-car field of finalists that will again race for the Summit World Championship during the IHRA World Finals in Rockingham, North Carolina on October 20-22, 2006. The World Championship race will be held during Sunday’s final eliminations during the professional session. The race will also be filmed by Speed Channel and seen when the IHRA World Finals airs on Speed in the fall.
There have also been provisions made for divisions that run the Summit Team Finals after the World Finals is over, and for tracks that are geographically unable to attend a team final to ensure that no one is excluded from the program.
The program highlights are as follows:
Program will begin February 1st, 2006
Each track will determine a P.R. winner by September 11th based on the 30 round format as currently in place. Any points discrepancies should be handled with your home track first. All points and positions will be declared official and final on September 14th regardless of any unresolved discrepancies so as not to affect the ability to hold the Team Finals run-off.
P.R. Champions from each track in Division 2,3,4,5 will run each other at their respective Summit Team Finals. This will take the place of the Race of Champions event. Each winner will advance to the Elite 8 in their class and race for the Summit World Championship at the IHRA World Finals.
P.R. Champions in Division 1 will run off at the Torco Race Fuels President’s cup Nationals at Maryland International Raceway on September 30th, 2006. The winner in each class will advance to the Elite 8 and race for the Summit World Championship at the IHRA World Finals.
An “At-Large” position in the Rockingham World Finals Run-Off will be filled by selecting the racer with the highest P.R. score from the participating tracks that at are geographically unable to attend a Team Finals (Aruba, Alaska, Edmonton, etc.). If the person with the highest P.R. from among these at-large tracks can not attend the World Finals, the 2nd highest score will be offered the spot. We will go down the list until a participant that can attend the Rockingham World Finals is found. This will make sure the at-large spot is represented with a participant from one of these tracks.
The 7th an
Just a reminder, the season opener race is this saturday, Feb 4th.
