    POCI-GTOAA Co-Vention Drag Race

    I got my GTOAA "The Legend" magazine yesterday and saw that the drag race ( Friday July 10...Xenia, Ohio) is being turned into a $10,000 payout bracket race with following 5 different brackets:

    1) Chief Bracket (all electronic and launch enhancements)
    2) Warrior Bracket (no electronics ... but transbrakes are ok)
    3) Stock Bracket ( 11.50 and slower, no electronics, transbrakes or slicks...DOT approved tires are ok)
    4) GTO Bracket ( 12.99 and slower, no electronics, transbrakes ...no electronics, transbrakes ... slicks and DOT ok)
    5) FWD Bracket ( 11.50 and slower ... slicks and DOT ok)

    So since it looks like I'll still be in Ohio this year I think I'll be going and entering the Stock Bracket. I know there won't be many cars faster since that that bracket tops out at 11.5. My 60s are consistent as hell so my car runs dead on once I dial in for the day. This looks like it will be fun and a good trial for the Ames Pontiac Nationals races at Summit Motorsports Park (Norwalk, Ohio) a month later.

    I'm not really that worried. lol If the turnout is like it was in Columbus two years ago it'll be like ducks on the pond. Heaths the only one in Ohio I'd have to watch out for and he runs a little too fast now for my bracket. ...oh that's right he's up in your bracket now. lol ...of course since this is more then GTOs this year there is an unknown factor now.

    The M6s aren't consistent so things are in my favor there.
