  • Spring Break NMCA Bradenton, FL

    My son and I are going to Bradenton in March for the 10th Annual Ross Racing Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals, Featuring the GM Performance Parts LSX Challenge. Will meet up with Cstmwgn that weekend. Any Floridian (or any and all) Freaks interested?

    I have been to that race 5 times. Fun, fun, fun until a tornado whips through there....

    Scott Sparrow (NMCA's Chief Meterorologist) forecast a squall line and boy did we get it. WOW!


    You'll have a great time. Tell Jake Amitisto I said hello.

      Don't be shy guys - it would be helpful to know how many freaks/bangshifters are going to come so I can properly plan for the barbecue that will happen one evening (most likely Saturday night after the races)

          I think you will get your ass kicked as those guys are beyond serious but PLEASE don't let that stop you for coming down as we all would love to see you.

            Alan, that is no joke. I was at the LSX shootout in 2008, which also happened to be the NMCA finals held in Memphis. My good, personal friend Mark Micki dominated that year winning the Scorpion Pro-Street Championship. I competed that weekend in the street class and enjoyed it. I didn't do as good as good as Mark, as he won that night as well, but it was fun. Come to think of it, I believe he won every race but two that year, and was in the finals every race. What a good year....

                    Bruce, I am sure you remember my cooking skills are no where as good as yours so you are welcome to bring anything (one) you like. I will be sure to have enough tri-tip for whatever number of folks that comfirm they are comming. My barbecue isn't big enough to do a lot of steak and corn but IF the sweet corn is in we could boil a bunch on the stove. Baked beans would be cool if you have a good receipt for those. You could always do another desert (cobbler). Just remember if you are going to get all Julia Child's on us that you will have to bring your own tools!

                      As I stated before, there are a number of hotels that are right off of I75 at exit 220 (SR 64) which is the off ramp that you get off of to go to DeSoto Drag strip. Let me drive up there this weekend and get the list of hotels and eateries and I will get back to you. Bob's point was that there REALLY isn't much else to do out there (I75 & SR64) but sleep and maybe eat. If you want to check out other stuff you can drive to the beach in about 30 minutes (~20 miles). It is the Braden Street Cruisers car show weekend (parking lot deal) on Saturday. There most likely will be other local shows as well.

                        i like my cooking, but it doesn't mean anyone else will. i guess you don't remember how the cobbler turned out. thank god for mass quantity of beer. i'll come with something and let you know.

                          with this group, i'm sure we can figure something out or find some way to amuse ourselves. no matter what, sounds like a fun weekend.
