The dyno day and show-n-shine will be at Lonestar Motorsports Park (www.lonestarmotorsportspark.com). Friday kicks off the first of two days of events at Lonestar and John Hennessey (owner of the track) was gracious enough to offer his grounds to all of the attendees to leave trucks, trailers, etc...overnight. The dyno day schedule will work the same way it's worked over the last fouir years. First come first serve... I will be at Lonestar at 8:20 am on Friday and will be taking sign ups for the dyno day that morning. Sponsors will get a guaranteed spot but the rest of the spots will be open to anyone. The first car will hit the dyno at 9:00 am and we will dyno cars every 20 minutes until 3:00 pm. The Show-N-Shine judging will be from 12:00-2:00 pm. All awards will be presented at 3:00 pm. Right after the dyno day the 60-130 competition will start followed by drag racing.

Directions from the Host Hotel:
From the Hotel, take I-10 WEST and stay on I-10 for approximately 40 miles. Exit 713 Beckendorf Road and follow the signs to Lonestar (once you exit to the right, you will take a left and onto a bridge over I-10, then you will turn right onto the access road on the other side of I-10 and follow to Lonestar).



Friday Night March 20, 2009 - 60-130 Competition at Lonestar Motorsports Park (after Dyno Day)

This year, the 60-130 competition will take place after the dyno day and before the 1/4 mile track opens on Friday night. We will wrap up the dyno day promptly at 3 pm and 60-130 race from 3:15 pm to 6:30 pm.

Friday Night March 20, 2009 and Saturday March 21, 2009 - Drag Racing at Lonestar Motorsports Park

The Drag Racing event will be at Lonestar Motorsports Park (www.lonestarmotorsportspark.com) for the second year in a row. This year, we will once again bring back the "drag racing for 2 days option".

Here are the details:
Friday night, after the dyno day and after the 60-130 competition, the track will go hot at 7 pm and drag racing will continue until 12 am (midnight). All runs on Friday will be test-n-tune runs. The next morning (Saturday), the gates will open at 8:00 am and the track will go hot at 9:00 am. From 9:00 am until 11:00 am we will have practice runs. Starting at 11:00 am qualifying will start and the schedule will be as follows:

11:00 am - qualifying pass 1
12:30 pm - qualifying pass 2
2:00 pm - eliminations round 1
3:30 pm - eliminations round 2
4:30 pm - eliminations round 3
5:30 pm - final round eliminations

There will be a dedicated lane for test-n-tune ALL DAY LONG.

Cost: spectators will pay $20 to LMP on Saturday. Racers will be able to purchase a "2-day tech card" on Friday (NON-REFUNDABLE if you break on Friday night) for $80 (in addition to the $15 cost to enter on dyno day). If a racer only wants to run on Saturday, the tech cards will be the same price as last year, $45 (in addition to the $20 cost to enter).

Food: concessions will be open all day

DRAG RACING CLASSES

As of right now, any car can run the below classes as long as it meets the rules outlined below.

TEST-N-TUNE
The lanes will be open all day for test-n-tune. This is the perfect venue for you to settle your grudges or to simply have the opportunity to run an UNLIMITED number of times!

Class 6 (UNLIMITED)
Multiple power adders allowed. Gasoline and methanol permitted as primary fuel. Not required to run full interior (can be stripped), however it must retain IRS. Any transmission ok with the exception of air shifted transmissions. W tires allowed with a maximum size of 10.5W. All other tires allowed.

Class 7 (6-Speed Challenge)
Cost to enter this class is $100 payable to me at the gate when you get to LMP. The winner will get 75% of the pot and the runner-up will get 25% of the pot (i.e. if there are 8 cars entered, the winner will get $600 and the runner-up will get $200). The only rule is that you must run a 6-speed transmission, no automatics allowed, any car make/model allowed.

Street Car Class
This is a new class for 2009 that will be open to ALL MAKES/MODELS. This class will have a handsome payout and should be very interesting. This class will be administered by a new sponsor of TX2K9 that is local to Houston named ARD. They came to me with this idea and I liked it so much, I decided to give it a shot this year! Thank you to Owen Priest and ARD for helping me put this class together. This class can and should include Vettes, Porsche's, Vipers, Supra's, Camaro's, Mustang's, etc...

The rules:

--all entrants will be required to go on a 20-30 mile cruise and will have to stay behind a lead car and in front of an end car...any participant that falls out of that line for any reason during the cruise will be disqualified and entry fee will not be refunded...the cars that fall out can stay and test-n-tune all day...speeds on the cruise will be mostly highway and will be in the 60 mph range...
--the cruise will leave the front gates at Lonestar at 11:30 am...just after qualifying pass 1 and back in enough time to run qualifying pass 2 if wanted
--carpet, both front seats and door panels required
--inspection sticker required (in the state you live in)
--radio that works is required (which means you need speakers too)
--stock suspension required (all suspension components must be located in the stock locations)
--no tire rule
--no fuel rule
--no power adder rule

$1,000 CASH - last year it went to Stacy Barnett who entered his TT Viper into the competition. At the end of TX2K8 last year, these were the following results:

1. Stacy Barnett - TT Viper - 370 points
2. Marty Kaye - 996TT - 355 points
3. Sean Reed - 996 GT2 - 345 points
4. Eric Carver - 06 Z06 - 340 points
5. Thomas Bradley - 98 Supra - 315 points

6. Tag Marlow (Supra) - DNF
6. Ron Henderson (Supra) - DNF
6. Muhammad Choudhurry - DNF
6. Jason Lord - DNF
6. Peter Anastasopolous (996) - DNF

Q&A:
Do I need to enter every event? NO, all you need to do is have the MOST points at the end of the day Sunday.

What type/kind of cars qualify? ANY CAR (Supra, Porsche, Vette, Viper, WRX, EVO, etc...). If you have an AWD car, contact me and I have a way to count your dyno number that will require some verification, etc...

How do you know what my quickest times are? It will be up to the person in the competition to bring me VERIFICATION of their quickest time/dyno number. Don't assume I know what you ran or how much power you put down. You need to make sure you come to me to show me your time slip, remind me of you dyno number, etc...

Can we have different drivers for the different events? Yes, I do not care who drives your car, all I care about is the fact that you have to run the SAME car in each event you enter that you want to count towards the ULTIMATE Street Car Competition.

What kind of car do you think is the best candidate for this competition? Those cars that do everything well have the best chance.





Lets make a list-
