Getting more Teens into Drag Racing and Hot Rodding

As someone who is 19, and I have been into drag racing and hot rods since I was in middle school I have always wondered why the NHRA, IHRA, NMCA, etc is not starting programs to try to get high school teens more into drag racing. Sure there are a few that are here and there but not a lot like how it...

Re: my local track is in trouble...

My local track had a no entry fee race last weekend and it drew a big crowd. Lots of spectators too for some reason. Maybe it was free for everyone at the gate. Not sure. So people are interested but maybe money is just too tight right now. Whatever Jim Howe is doing at I-40 Dragway in Crossville, ...

Re: my local track is in trouble...

Here in South Florida we are doing ok, sadly its mixed though, I thought the dragstrips should gear more towards Nostalgia Drag Races since in Florida we have lots of Slingshots and Nostalgia Funny Cars but none of them are interested in doing it other than Lakeland who does Billetproof. As for the ...

Re: Are Pro Street Cars the Modern Gassers?

NMCA Pro Street is certainly not a pump gas class, and they're nothing at all similar to Gassers? That article makes no sense. I think what was trying to be said is that the NMCA Pro Street is an all out race class that happens to use Street Legal Cars, much like the Gassers where. Sure the mods ar...

Re: Are Pro Street Cars the Modern Gassers?

Sorry I should of specified more, I meant Pro Street as in the NMCA style Pro Street that is a pump gas class that is still street legal though they are competitive race cars similar to the Gas classes of the 60s.

Re: Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

Like stated before, it's all on what you were raised up on. Back when I was in high school, it was VERY common to see Camaro's, Nova's, Chevelle's, Vette's, Cuda's, Challenger's, Chargers, GTX's, Darts, Mustang's, Torino's on every street. I'd like to see that BMW go up against some of the FACTORY ...

Re: Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

MX it takes too much time and energy bantering back and forth with the import crowd that could be better spent making your "Old Muscle Car" faster..But,just a little tip for your beemer buddy this is a new age...10's aren't fast anymore. That is true! I think to me 10s are still fast till I reach t...

Re: Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

Mega Budget Deficits, Cats and Dogs living together, Hating Muscle Cars, what is the world coming too? Not worth your time trying to convince the import owners that they are retarded, just keep on doing your thing and enjoy it. Maybe some of them will see the light eventually. At least your BMW lov...

Re: Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

Here’s more of my perspective from the peanut section: It's all in what you grew up with or developed an interest around. Wanting to try something different, starting back around 1979 I spent time dinking with Conference and SCCA road racing, at one time owning a little Datsun 510. At that point in...

Re: Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

Next time they say muscle cars are not fast, get on you tube and go to the pure stock drags channel. And ask them how many of the muscle cars they can out quarter mile. But as Harry said, its a preference thing. At least you have good taste. :thumb: Thanks I tired showing the beamer owner Larry Lar...

Re: Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

My opinion: I think its as simple as this: You like what you know, what you grew up with or what your peers are driving or bragging about. The idiots who turn those preferences into contentious back-and-forth dialogs are just that, idots. There's a lot to appreciate no matter what technology you pr...

Re: Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

i agree we both above and as hitch has said tell the guy with the beamer to come to the track and we can make a pass side by side and then ask him why we own muscle cars and i bet before you know it he is out looking for one or he trys to build his beamer to the point it only breaks down all the ti...

Why is there a Lot of Muscle Car Bashing/ Dissing?

I may be only 19 but I always loved Muscle cars and Hot Rods, do to my Grandfather owning them and growing up in Florida near Garlits' Museum. Anyway it seems a lot on other car forums and where I live now there is a lot of Muscle Bashing. In my town there is a friend of my parents in his 40s who Dr...
