      At the PRI show DF said that despite Labor Day they were still looking at the first or second week in September.

        If it is the week of Labor Day that would save one day of vacation for me, seems like a good thing.

                I think they are still triing to finalize one stop for Power Tour which is in June, Then Drag Week could be done. I still say it won't be the week of the holiday but the next full week. Tech will be the 13th.

                  What about . . . .



                  Not that any NHRA chasers run DW, but would they really schedule over "The Big Go?" Could their small staff cover both?

                      I hope not. I just put in my vacation request based on Tech on the 6th.

                        I hope for u too, but, Power Tour's and Drag Week's seem to be the full weeks after both holidays.

                          I'd be surprised if it was the 6th.

                              They did, sort of. One track bailed and the whole house of cards fell from what I understand.
