    I'm thinking Memphis will be the anchor track this year...
    Well just like the letter said... they had 80+ drop out.... thats the reason
    for the 50% refund before the certain date.... I dont blame them at all
    for the refund policy
    EDIT
    Last year the guys had the same amount of time to get ready

    • Okay thanks for the input guys. And i agree with moparbilly whats $300 when you spend so much more on gas parts etc. It is a good idea tho since.it would be unfair to someone who is ready and cant register..just dont know if its enough to stop someone from .registering their car when they are not ready

      • Ill be preregistering even though I don't know if I can make it yet. 290 is nothing in the grand scheme of things.

          Your right.... 290 is much when you consider it cost most of us in the $2000+
          range to go... but HOPEFULLY it cuts down on people signing up and screwing
          other out of a chance to go

          • Today's economy, I think it will slow it down a little. Kinda hard to throw $290 when you have thousands to spend just to finish your ride. I have one beer on 2 week sale out... lol

              • I don't think it'll sell out like last year, but I'm sure more cars will roll outa Beech Bend than at Tulsa last year. The 50% will slow folks down and make them think about it a bit more. Slower burn but I think we'll get to 250 or damn near registered and 225 start the drive. Just my guess.

                • That would be sick to see 225 hot rods hitting the road... I would love to be on the corner with a camera, but I prefer to roll out with you all this time...

                  • For the guys who don't get there car ready will most likely join DD rather than give up the $290.

                      • It will depend on the location as to whether I go at all. Memphis would b ideal since I am an hour and a half from there. The wife wants a real vacation this year- and I don't have money and time for both DW and her idea of a vaca. My truck is running- so this year would b spent driving and tuning it to get ready. That is way closer than I was last year at this time.

                        I am not a fan of the new return policy but I understand the reason for it. I have registered twice and had last minute issues stop me from going both times. Who would have guessed an engine that was 8 years old would lose oil pressure and eat the crank just before I was going to load it up? Losing my entrance fee would have been insult to injury. I will have to think hard about going this year before registering. I may take my chances and wait- I doubt it will sell out this year.
                        Why think when you can be doing something fruitful?

                            Preregister and MAKE IT HAPPEN (please).....I gotta see your car again. Plan on watching more and less working on my junk this year.

                              And then there are some of us who have no way of building a ride to compete in the classes and build just to run in DD. Silly as it sounds, I bought my junk 4 years ago just for building a DW entry. Knew I couldn't ever get close to what 95% of the cars in DW so, I just decided to build what I wanted to drive and go have some fun. And, silly me, I thought it would be one year then sell the stuff but that plan fell apart once I went.

                              Now I'm "re-thinking" my plan..........................now just where did I put that old tractor turbo?
