  • The route

    Just an estimate since obviously I don't know the route. Looks like the last day will be the back breaker.

    Tulsa-Ennis. 286 miles

    Ennis-Gilliam 204 miles

    Gilliam-Memphis 323

    Memphis-Tulsa 404

      That would be the late day we have to give it time to start raining, thats got to go down in history as the
      Blunder of 2011. Wait all day till the rain starts when you knew it was coming.

        It was actually a secret Hot Rod conspiracy to keep moparman63 from tearing the DD class a new one with his ninja bracket racing skills.

              I don't know if anybody else is doing this, but I plan on making the Memphis-Tulsa trip over two days... Since racing doesn't begin till 4pm Friday, I plan to finish the drive Friday morning. It should make it a little more of a relaxing drive and I will be in no hurry to leave Memphis.

                            the 400 mile trip, I'm gonna have to work half a day at the Quicky Mart to pay for gas. Hope I make it that far. Apu is counting on me.

                            400 miles is an asswhip for me in a nice car... I might take a swing at the tree out of spite. haha. j/k.

                              Interesting idea, is there any place midway between Memphis and Tulsa that we'd actually want to stay? Jake?
