Talking NMRA Spring Break Ford Nationals

Bradenton Motorsports Park, Florida, March 12, 13 and 14. Sunoco race fuels 100 - 112 octane and plenty of other goodies.

Our local SVT club is heading up on the Saturday (13th). This track rocks, one of the best in Florida.

Who else is going? D-Day is calling his first 1/4 under 12, baby!

Pete, I spoke with a tech at the track, I need to check NMRA rules (because it is their event), but Bradenton has all the basic race rules, plus - if you run a 11.49 or faster you need a five point harness belt, if you run under 10.99 you need a roll cage.

I won't need to worry about these, but if you bring your insane beast out you will need a 5-point for sure, and only you know about the role cage!

I will be ordering my slicks from Tom next week, question - do slicks improve in traction after a couple runs or are they just as good right out of the box?

It has been said that a good burnout and a cooling cycle makes for best traction. I have found with the Hoosier slicks is if you do a good burnout the first pass they will do well.

Thanks Dan, my cage should be installed in time for that. The Hoosiers work great. Just give them a good old fashioned burnout out of the box.

Come on down Mat. The event will be small, compared to most. It will be a good show, and probably a historical one at that.
