Remember when we said save the date for January 14, 2017? Hopefully you did, because this is not going to be something you want to miss.
On January 14, 2017 at Tucson Dragway in Tucson, Arizona, we’re gonna be racing and hanging out talking cars. You should join us. We even finally named the event, with help from all of you.
2017 Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags
12000 S Houghton Rd, Tucson, AZ 85747
All that’s great, right? There’s more. So much more. This much more:
Friday, January 13
Here’s the rough plan. It’s likely to go wrong.
Early in the morning we will meetup at the HOT ROD and Roadkill shop in El Segundo, California. We’ll have donuts and t-shirts and maybe even maps with where we are going. Once all the Roadkill cars are road worthy (heh), we’ll set out for Arizona. Maybe we’ll stop for lunch on the way. For sure we’ll stop because something breaks. You don’t have to stop. No really, go ahead, we’ll catch up. We’ll end up at Tucson Dragway in the evening, and you can camp at the track or just hang out for a bit. We want to have a campfire, but maybe we’ll just roast marshmallows over whichever Roadkill pile has an electrical short.
Oh yeah, Tucson Dragway has a test-n-tune on Friday nights, so anything that’s still running after the drive can make some passes.
Saturday, January 14
We have activities planned!
Swap meet – sell stuff! Buy stuff!
T-shirts – So many designs!
Drag Racing – Because, duh, racetrack. Race your car.
Car Show – In case it stops running
Autographs and Q&A with Freiburger and Finnegan
Race F&F Lottery – Try for a chance to drag race against a Roadkill car (The likelihood of you winning is high.)
Roadkill Exhibition Runs (Our junk is going to break)
Our first $3,000 Hooptie Challenge. This is a race where Roadkill decides if a car has been built for less than $3,000 or not. The accepted cars run hot laps, heads up. Winners return to lanes until a winner has been determined. There’s bound to be fighting.
Burnouts and Awards!
Everyone go home now.
Doesn’t that sound like fun?
It’s not even that much money, ‘cause we know you’re poor.
