Warner Robins, GA – One of the great things about living in the south is the racing we can do nearly year round. I happened out to the our home track, Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, GA for the first test and tune session of the year. With temps hovering right around 70 degrees and clear skies I was able to get a few shots to share with our faithful readers. Hope this helps cheer up my northern friends as they brace for yet another snow storm mid week!

Rising Sun, Md – It’s here, the most anticipated race event of the fast door car world for 2010. With it’s huge success as the leading message board and community in the fast door car world of drag racing, it was a natural fit to have an outlaw race with the Yellow Bullet name.
“It’s been years in the making” stated board owner Monty Mihko, “the guys have talked to me for the last few seasons about doing a race. With the direction of many organizations in question we felt it was time to do this.” When asked if this would become an annual event, Mihko had this to say, “Ask me on the Wednesday after…but seriously, we are hoping to do this again. I can’t thank the vendors and sponsor enough for their support of this race. They are making the difference.”
Look for live internet coverage of the race on DragStory.com’s Outlaw TV, http://odrtv.com, starting with the first round of qualifying at 10:00 am on Saturday morning
