This is always a fantastic event, and I encourage everyone (meaning you better be there, oh yes... this means you...) to go... :D

This will be the 15th and final year of Summer Blast, big thanks to the Mid-Atlantic MN12 club for hosting one last time!

Reservations can now be made at the Comfort Inn, Edwin Miller Blvd, Martinsburg, WV (Phone: 304 263-6200) Please ask for reservations under the Thunderbird and Cougar Club. Room rates should be $79.00 per room. They can tell you what's available. For those coming solo, try to share rooms with others so the expenses are split to make this more affordable. The rates and rooms will be held until July 29, 2016. Afterwards, they will be on a case by case basis.

BTW - the private track rental is totally worth it, and a deal for the money.

Even if you've never tried racing - it's super fun, and it's nice to do it in a low key environment :D :D :D

What they said.. This event is probably the most fun I've ever had at a track. I think I have 26 timeslips from that day that prove it.. :D

It's probably the most coupes you'll ever see in one place, too. It was really important to me to attend this year, but I have a family wedding scheduled on the same day and will be unable to attend. Everyone else needs to go in my stead and make this one, the best one.


Lincoln Evangelist
Honestly, I thought I was done for a while, but I've got two, this summer....

Everyone's getting married but me..

But I get to use the Dyson on my floor mats, guilt free.. small victories, I suppose.


Lincoln Evangelist

Something like that.. Although I didn't think of the Bridesmaid angle.. Hmm.. :)


For real, everyone needs to attend this. Get crackin', people!

And Steve, you've got two cars you don't yet know the 1/4 mile times on yet. I think it's time to find out. (and probably shame a few Mark VIIIs in the process..)


El Presidente
Registration for the track day and dyno must be sent and received by me by August 1st. That's 1 week away folks. At this point it is looking like the track day will not go. They dyno session will as long as there is interest. I will be contacting them this week to insure our spot.

Dependent on participation event may change schedule somewhat. Will know more in a week. Please get your registrations in please! Thanks.


Lincoln Evangelist
If I'm reading that forum post correctly, it looks like they don't quite have the numbers they want yet.

If you can make this event, now is the time. These are great folks, and this is the most track time you're ever going to get in one day.


El Presidente
If you're on the fence... sign up! You can cancel the hotel reservations if need be and if the track date falls through your money will be refunded!

Amusing how I always hear people complain about how crowded drag racing T&T sessions are and you can't get enough people together to pony up for a track rental. :(


Lincoln Evangelist
Man, I wish I could make it to this. Even without the track rental. I'd love to get my car on a dyno...


Lincoln Evangelist
Bumping, fishing for an update. :) I'm about to go watch my cousin get married, but I want to see some fast cars..


El Presidente
Car show... Check.
Picnic... Check.
Dyno... Check.

Looks like tomorrow's track plans will be a washout, so some of us hard core racers went to the track this evening. ;)


El Presidente
As figured, the All Ford event at the Mason Dixon Dragway was rescheduled due to inclement weather.

Here's a couple pics from weekend.

Lining up at the hotel parking lot to head out to car show and picnic...
