That time of year again. The schedule for the week is as follows: Sept 8th (tech), Sept 9th Day 1 - Virginia Motorsports Park, North Dinwiddie, VA Sept 10th Day 2 - Cecil County Dragway, Rising Sun, MD Sept 11th Day 3 - Atco Dragway, Atco, NJ Sept 12th Day 4 - Maryland International Raceway, Budds Creek, MD Sept 13th Day 5 - Virginia Motorsports Park, North Dinwiddie, VA Drag Week Results 2005-18. Hard to believe that this will be the 15th running of Drag Week. It's grown so much from that first edition, in size and in speed. In 2005 there were 40 cars, the fastest of which were running around the 8.5sec mark. Now there are ten times as many cars, 8's are almost common, 7 seconds is on the way to becoming the new 8, and we've seen the top guys well into the 6's. In not just street-legal cars, but street-legal cars that can actually be driven distance on the street. It's truly mind-blowing. Cars to watch this year? Well, I'm looking forward to seeing this bad boy again - Scott Brown's wicked '53 Chevy. Mike Finnegan has just about gotten Blasphemi ('55 Chevy gasser with a supercharged Chrysler Hemi motor) back together after yet another engine rebuild along with some remedial suspension work and a new fuel system. Hopefully it's now keeping the coolant in the cooling system and not pouring it into the oil...Finn's been even quicker in the car since that 8.97 on Day 5 last year, so if she holds together then a win in A/Gas is not beyond the realms of possibility. Dave Newbern, 'Spirit of Drag Week' winner last year, is bringing the Attempted Murder Nova back with much more powerful running gear. Top honours in Unlimited will probably be fought out again by Tom Bailey ('Sick Seconds' 1969 Camaro) and Dave Schroeder (nitrous-huffing blue Corvette). But the great thing about Drag Week is the surprises that pop up. For me, last year it was Paul Cornman's '71 Dodge Demon that laid down a 9.452 on Day 1 like it was no big deal with a carb'd NA small-block and 3 speed automatic 'box. That was a really cool car. I'll post the livestreams as they become available each day along with results as they get published.
