Plenty of action for everyone! Call me if you need any help finding a hotel or other information. Don't miss it! I paid $ 50.00 for Super Street and $ 40.00 Pro 1 brackets. This was at the Division 5 opener. I thought I heard the track pa man say something about the $4K being handed out for the NHDRA diesel race. The only pay outs were from contingency's. Nothing was paid out by the NHDRA. So for $ 37.00 you guys are getting a deal +++ the $4500 in prize money. Good Luck, Steve B.

Tell me Steve- where did you see this or hear this??? No one else heard this at the track as a purse?? Go look in the Division 5 Season Opener thread and look at the first flier advertised-(post # 8) then the updated one-(post #29) neither speak of the 4K purse you speak of......

Maybe the pa announcer mis-read the contingency winnings for purse? I don't know.

Win Runner up 3rd

This will be my first race with NHRDA so I have no idea how they operate. I have raced quite a bit at Union Grove and know Mark Hucksdorf pretty well. He is a stand up guy and I am sure if he has any thing to do with it it will be on the up and up.

This is my third year racing with the NHRDA, and I couldn't imagine a better organization to be racing with. :woohoo:

I am thinking about coming down for both days.

Does anyone down that way know of any places to camp close to the fairgrounds? Trying to make it a weekend thing with my boy so Momma will let us go!!!

Travis, There is a campground about 3-4 miles away from both. It is the Bong State park. I think if you google it you can find information and directions.

Hope to see a lot of people there all three days. I live right across the street from the fair grounds and just down the road from the dragstrip. Hope to see everyone there.

Great news i just got off the phone with Dan Scheid and they confirmed that they will be attending Diesel Fest this weekend in Wisconson. The weather looks good for this weekend and should be a great turnout for both the NADM sled pull and the NHRDA diesel drag race.

See you all this weekend

I would like to see them hit the 200 MPH mark! Get er done!

Michael
06-06-2008, 12:36 PM
BTW, for those who are skeptical about the contingency program with NHRDA, you can get something from just about all of the sponsors to fit any truck. I know this firsthand since I race an OBS Ford! If MBRP doesn't make an exhaust for your truck, you can always get an MBRP tip! You can order an AFE filter from NADP, and catch two contingencies in one shot. You can have just about anything coated by HPC!

I was a bit skeptical about this arrangement when I started running NHRDA, but it has worked out very well. I'm just ticked at myself for not figuring out the stuff I mentioned above until after running a season with them (and missing out on quite a few possible payouts).

Crap, I forgot that I planned to get a section of my exhaust coated by HPC before the next race...

Regards,
Michael Pliska

I heard a lot of water is gonna fall from the sky, just not sure if it will make it as far south as you guys. They said Milwaukee was going to get a downpour.

Around here (N. IL) a few tornadoes, some heavy storms. Nothing like WI though, SE WI got rocked yesterday afternoon too.
