Well I was there and a bunch of Dodges, couple D-max and one or two PSDs - except for me, no one from this site.

I hear DHRA doesn't think the Northeast is worth coming to.

Based upon todays turn-out for this NHRDA T&T and GTG as a primer for the 2 SEPT race event, I'd probably have to say the NHRDA will give up on the NE too.

Folks complain that nothing much happens here in the NE - well there is a reason.

I was planning on being there but my annual company picnic was yesterday :lame: . The Sept 2nd event is bad too, annual formans meeting in Jamaica from Friday to Monday. I know what your saying buddy, but in my case it couln't be helped. Hopefully next time if there is one.

Well the only thing I can say is that in the NE most folks are trying to squeez in there last family vacations for the year. I think if the DHRA and the NDRHA would get up here in the early summer or after Labor day they would get more play. Theit timing is poor for scheduling the events. Look @ retail in the area it's traditional way down in August casue folks are not home.

Don't buy that. M-D TD Cecil County event last weekend probably drew 50-80 trucks (maybe more - Dockboy, ya have a total?) spectating and racing, as opposed to maybe a dozen or so.

More like NE apathy, I think. we'll see on SEPT 2nd.

Trust me look @ traffic on the way 2 work and you'll see what I mean. i made a drive today that would normally take 1 to 1.5 hrs in 30 mins. My buddy's beer and wine store is off more than 30% this month. Aug is a bad month to have things scheduled most teachers and people with kids are OOO and Out of town. Look @ lodging availablity @ the shore and near family vaca destinations. :poke: Come on down on the 1st and help me get my pig running and I'll drive up and run. Exhaust leaks or not. :gun:
