where do you all go drag racing around southbay? i asked this a long time ago and a lot of you directed me to pomona, but i was confused on something about that place. :confused: i usually go to irwindale every thursday for their tnt. i like the place, but its only 1/8th mile.

about pomona raceway. everytime i check their website, it only shows the schedule for the official nhra drags. what about the weekly events, or do they offer any? i hear you guys talk about going to pomona quite often. can you let me know when do you guys go? if im wrong, where do you guys go?

what about fontana dragway?

i really need to know when do you guys go? is there a schedule on some website that tells you these information?

not too many imports go to irwindale, and we don't stand a chance against those 1000whp musclecars.

uh I'm at irwindale all the time. lol I'm the silver celica running 9.0's and 8.9's :)

you can go to www.californiaspeedway.com (in fontana by my house) but its a slow track. 1200 ft elevation and sometimes not prepped right and typically a 5-15mph head wind.

you can also try saturdays at carlsbad dragstrip. its about an hour and 20 minutes from california speedway. it's got lower temps and its 0 elevation. you will be .2 - .3 faster then you will be at cali speedway.

thx, lucky! can you tell me what the schedule is for californiaspeedway? i still can't find it.

and at carlsbad, is it every saturday?

there are always 3 celicas there. and all 3 are silver, so which one is yours? there are 2 with the trd(or alike) bodykit and one of them has a cf hood. the last one has no wing.

carlsbad is every saturday. last time I went to CSW I was wingless. kinda sucked cause EVERY celica was silver except 1 red one. lol 1 of the silver/action package ones is my other teamate.

heres a direct link to the schedule... http://dbserver.iscmotorsports.com/...e=T&Establishment_ID=1&viewsection=California Dragway&

only 1 day per month til summer. by then it'll be too hot to get good times anyways. lol I'm waiting til my new mods get here and I get the car tuned before I hit the track again. check the socal race days thread cause I usually post what days we'll be at the track there.

they are every other saturday and end at 11 pm. only problem is that its a 1200 ft elevation track with a typical head wind of 3-10 mph or more on a windy day wher you can see gusts up to 30 - 40 mph as a head wind

Are there a decent amount of imports that show up at carlsbad? I checked out the website and it looked like it was all american with exception of one or two japanese cars.

^^ the websites are always biased towards the domestics since they consider imports not real racing.

I will be at carlsbad tomorrow :)
