It's easy, pick a class and donate something and get an official Sponsor plaque. 

For now we have R-Geo, RacePace and DC-65x  signed on as class sponsors.

Help out, join the fun!

You should approach Ram, Kemtron or E-bay.

Mike, how far are you from RAM Engineering headquarters? Ebay or Paypal gift are cards accepted.   :D

 

Pittman is still around in PA. ... I think.

Maybe they would like a copy of the race report :D ... or not,,,,, :dash2:  :sarcastic_hand:  

 

Any prize slot related works, guys pretty much like it all. :good:

GetSome 1000 lubricating oil would like to sponsor.  What do we need to do?

 

Coastal Angler Magazine doesn't have any slot goodies, but they got nice soft sided coolers to hold your favorite 12 oz case of beverages?

Very cool Charlie :good:

 

GetSome 1000 would be an AweSome class sponsor! :D

Coastal Angler could do a door prize handout of a mag copy to all and a cooler to a class winner.... unless there is a 'big bunch' of those to give away.

 

Pick the classes you want  ... except the Sports Car class as someone ask for first dibs on that one.

 

NICE!

More commonly known around here as DC-65x,  Rick has joined the fun by picking up the Sports car class and will be providing a secret sealed 'gift' to that class winner.

 

Thanks Rick !!! :clapping:

Good thing you reminded us Bob... looking through my stash for some drag motors to donate...

 

Don 

 

Done! Bob, I'm donating 3 drag motors (Kemtron Mustang, Strombecker Destroyer and Pittman DC84-6), all in their boxes/on card, plus a MIB Ram 6V replacement arm. Use your judgement as to what they sponsor, either as a single lot or split into 2, whichever one needs prizes.

You gotta be kidding Bob - this is like a dream come true, finally being able to enter a drag race. 

 

That was about the only type of racing I never did, primarily because there was no drag strip near me. Actually, the local hobby shop where I wound up working had one in the beginning, but by the time I started racing regularly, they had moved a few spaces down the street, and no longer had the drag strip (or the HO track, or the 4 lane Strombecker track...). So never got to go to the drags... 

 

I did HO, 1/32 home, club and commercial, 1/24 club and commercial, but no drags and no wing cars... 

 

Don

Same here Don. Missed that scene in the 60s as there weren't any strips near by. The first time I saw a full size commercial 1/24th strip was in 2011.

To get your name on a plaque the commitment must be made by 5/12 COB.

The plaques will be in production on 5/13.

Thanks again to all the sponsors.

 

Shout out to BillB of Bad Racing for bringing sweet machined parts .. how about an Aluminum drag set-up block that will be machined to the guide depth of the winners choice. Bill made a great call and it was the "Light Money" award. Local/Pro Kenny Snodgrass was 'killing the tree' all day.

 

All other goodies were distributed to mostly class winners and few extra I put out with the cars to be packed.  

 

More is better but what we had was better too. :D

Baaaad Bill won the GetSome 1000 oil for his altered win, Gator Bob won the wheelstander class and got the soft sided embroidered Coastal Angler Magazine cooler.  Both well deserved...
