Wow, this is awesome. WannaGOFAST has added an event in French Lick Indiana for next October. That's an hour from me. I can't wait. Definitely hoping to have my car on higher boost and e85 by then to help get in at least a few kills. French Lick is a small resort town in the middle of nowhere, so having all these cars roll in should make for an awesome weekend.

I actually live in French Lick. I'm really looking forward to this event. Not sure if I will be racing or not yet.

Is anyone familiar with the quality of the tarmac there? Considering making this drive but don't want to do it and spend the money if the runway sucks. I ran a 1/2 mile event last year and the runway was in way worse shape than I would have preferred. Couldn't turn the car up without it hopping and spinning most of the 1/2 mile.

Runway is very nice concrete, we also plan to sweep and blow the track off before the race. Car should be fine. You're welcome to run drag radials as well :)

I want to do a 1/2 mile event!

What about Pocano? Are they doing that event again this year? Not sure it's quite as good as a runway event as far as the length of the straight, but the fact that your on the Speedway would more than make up for it IMO.
