    It's also the track where the Blazer ran its first (and only) eight second pass.
    Made my first pass there too 1988. Left lane on my Ninja.. Lived in Hutchinson at the time. (Born and raised there till 89)

              We are lucky enough to still have two fairly close.

              Sonoma Raceway (Sears Point) - elevation 13 feet - 95 miles from home - this is where I made my first pass to start the addiction/ learning in 2004 and where I usually run

              Sacramento Raceway - elevation 72 feet - 55 miles from home

              Famoso in Bakersfield - elevation 787 feet - 205 miles from home - still really want to run there

                Neal, keep an eye out up that way for a fellow by the name of Gary Delaney. He has our old '62 Valiant. He's a hella nice guy and the car is pretty cool, too.

                Me? Well, Heartland Park Topeka is my home track, as it is only 10 minutes from my house. It is not, however, the first track I raced. That was Little Apple Raceway (now Midwest Raceway) in Manhattan, KS. I still like that little 1/8th mile track.

                It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

                  Milan dragway, in milan, mi.

                  although i have to cross a border, it is only 50 miles away, and best track around.

                    Two for me - Immokalee Regional Raceway is the closest, but is 1/8 mile. I primarily bracket race my Chevelle there, and the other is Bradenton Motorsports Park, which is 1/4 mile. I made my first pass there, back when it was known as DeSoto Dragway and was owned by Art Malone (a long long time ago!).

                    I always like to try a new track though...
                    DW2013 - DNF (Gateway - trans failure)
                    DW2014 - SR BB/PA class winner!
                    DW2015 - Finished in 1 piece (for once!)
                    DW2016 - Still "Fox Free" ;)

                      WIR in kaukauna wi... its a hell of a drive to get there though.. about a whole 3 miles haha.. Basically grew up there.. started working there when i was 13 and have been racing there for the last 2 years.. hoping to get a bunch of track time in this year and possibly start bracket racing on saturday nights next year..

                      GLD would be the next closest.. but never been there.

                              Lubbock dragway was my home track till it closed due to getting repaved with concrete from less than reputable contractor, and they had to dig it up. Now its just 1/8 mile street racing at the top end of the track. I raced Hobbs N.M. a few times, and Amarillo back in the 90's when I wanted to slow down. I've raced Odessa Tx 1/8th mile too. Its down in a trench and has a SHORT shutdown.
                              Go ahead, pull my finger.

                                Top End Dragways Moorhead MN 20 minutes from my house. Used to be Interstate Dragways was owned by Funny car from the early days. The first time I went as a spectator summer of 75 or 76 they had a guy light a stick of dinamite throw a piece of plywood on it then lay on top and get blown into the air. 10 years later some friends talked me into trying racing, I won on my first time out (4 rounds) there was no way to get unhooked after that.
