So, anyone thought about doing a group 'run what you bring' trip to Castrol raceway to see what sort of 1/4 mile runs we can do. in 2wd mode with traction control off of course:naughty:

The first of the JB's Street Legals is on Friday April 27 and run every Friday through the summer. I will be trying to make as many of these as possible with the ALX club, and a few of the guys will be towing vehicles up and MAY try to have a truck run off every so often just for giggles. If you show up on the Friday's you'll have a chance to run any street legal vehicle, you just have to have all the required safety equipment for your regular/expected ET.

They've always had dirt racing, now 1/4 mile. All the engineering stuff is done and the base for the track. Just have to pave it once the ground is thawed. Here's a link to their website:

Yeah Chris, I had the misfortune of spending 5 months living at the Rimbey Grand Hotel (if ever a place was misnamed...) and there were a few tractor pulls done out there.

If all goes according to plan we should be having our annual shoot-outs on the 1/4 mile drag strip in July.
I never knew they were putting a 1/4 mile in there, sweet! This could shave 3 hours of driving if they get it open by July!

I don't think Rimbey is very far from Castrol in Leduc when driving from Calgary.

Got any pics of the GTZ? My buddy had one when we were teenagers. We blew the head gasket 3 times in one year doing burnouts. Very fun and fast car even in stock form. I wish GM took more risks like when that car first came out.

Hopefully I'll have time for a few trips up to Castrol this summer. Especially since Race City has now been bulldozed.
