Click link for details. Payouts this year will be 2-3X that of last years and we are hoping for an even better turnout. This is the second year of the event and hopefully it will be an even bigger success than last year. This is a great opportunity for the rotorheads to come and represent the rotary community and show why we love these cars so much. If you arent into racing there is still tons of fun to be had, meeting new people and hanging is always my favorite part of these events.

This year we are also incorporating the Nissan GTR and this will be a great chance for you guys to view some of these cars up close and see what they can really do on the track. Hope to see as many of you guys there as possible.

Sounds like a great event!! Maybe I can schedule my 2 week R & R leave during October and get some seat time at the track and see some awesome cars. David, I will expect you to be destoying ppl at the drap strip by then in your personal FD.

I wouldnt say destroying, I would be happy if it ran by OCT. I am contemplating making it an NA FD:leaving:............................




It will still have a rotary though.

Hope to make it again. The FB should hopefully be down in the 12s this time around.

It was great to see you show up and represent as all the fd owners were scared to drive down the track:) J/K

Brent, I am still going back and forth on the idea of the PP with nitrous but that may be more work than I want to tackle plus I am unsure if I want to do that to a fd.

That would be pretty wicked though, a PP w/NOS in an FD would be a nice change of pace IMO. Hopefully I will get more than 3 passes this year lol...keeping my fingers crossed.

Hey now I drove down the track twice, although I think I was the only FD. We did have Phil almost talked into it but the event ended.

I should be back this year, hopefully to back up last years TGP event. That was one of my favorite events at that track I've been to.

I was just trying to get a reaction out of some people. With the right tires you would have been in the high 11s and your car ran great considering it dominated the day before on the drag strip. We had worked on Phil all day to get out there then they close the track on us :rofl:

As for the track day I know we will probably have some GTRs this year so if some of the owners can drive you may have a heck of a challenge on your hands. Bring the 275s this year:)

I don't know about 11s, maybe with a good driver, but 1/4 and 1/8 mile aren't my thing. Which you could probably tell.

GTR's are heavy:beatdeadhorse5: But if they are on R-comps with a good driver they should be pretty tough to beat, especially since they have about 2x the hp. Maybe I need to tune for 17psi or so. :driving:

Ok.. is that directed at me? I will go down the track this year even if i have to push it! I just could not take the chance last year with just getting of the dyno the day before and having a couple issues. So now I am waiting on a new tranny- to do my clutch, flywheel job.

If Gary White shows up he is good for 9.6's....for the supras....
We need chrispeed up heree!

I figured you would respond to that, I just wanted to see the trap speeds on that beast.:)

ErnieTs car has low low 9s in it if he can get a clean pass in. Ive driven FDs with around 500rwhp but never tried to control one making 750rwhp.

I really hope Ernie comes down..That would be great. Just need Phil to have his ready for the show. Now we just need a dyno monster!

Oh, Pick Me :rofl:

Though I will probably put mine on the rollers just to see how much she is laying out. Then Bryan will put his FB on the rollers and take away my glory as the highest HP FB:(

I am 100% in either way. I should have mine fired up this week. If all is well I will have time to get it tuned for this year and get a few pratice runs in.... Funny, I was on the dyno the day before tuning last year also.. LOL

Chris, you need to beat the GTR:) If you do, i'm sure our car value will go up:)

I dunno, with Ernie T. coming we have a chance if he has it dialed in. I think a 9.5-9.7 should do it. Now if they make the classes right and make cars have the correct safety mods like cages, loops and such that would bump a few quick supras.. But that may be bad for the event, trying to grow it and all.

**2008 "SpeedForSale Shootout" & "GT-R Nationals" Events**
October 24-25, 2008 in the Talladega, Alabama area
Spectators welcome!

While this event is centered around the Supra, GT-R, Z, and RX7, we will also allow ANY car model to run at the road course, drag strip, and dyno as space and time permits. Regardless of what car you bring, EVERYONE and ANYONE is welcome to attend to watch the events and hang out!

These two events will be held simultaneously, with all cars together at the various events. The 'GT-R Nationals' event (sponsored by www.NissanGTRclub.com) will feature Nissan GT-R cars, and the 'SpeedForSale Shootout' will involve all Supra, RX-7, and 300ZX cars. There will be ~$2000 in cash payouts, with event payout break-downs coming soon. The events will consist of a road course time attack AND driving instruction event on Friday. Saturday consists of a quarter-mile drag strip (heads-up and test-n-tune) with a mobile dyno and car show in the parking area. The cars that enter the cash payout events must meet certain criteria to be considered 'STREET' cars (no solid rear axles, tubs, major frame/structure modifications, and more restrictions available via email.) The hotel is centrally located about 20 minutes from the road course and 45 minutes from the drag strip just off of I-20 (1.5 hour west of Atlanta.)

Friday, Oct. 24, 7:00am - 6:00pm CENTRAL time. Talladega Gran Prix Raceway: We have once again rented the road course 'Little Talladega' (www.TGPrace.com), but this time we have paid full insurance for a TIME ATTACK / RACE event! However, most of the day will be a road course driver's education event with everyone getting a FREE experienced instructor to ride along with them all day. ALL 40 SPOTS FOR THE ROAD COURSE WERE BOOKED ABOUT SIX WEEKS PRIOR TO THE EVENT! BE SURE TO REGISTER EARLY NEXT YEAR IF YOU WANT TO RUN! The road course spots were only $99/car for Nissan GT-R, $150/car for Supra, RX7, 300ZX, and $175/car for all other models...New for this year's event we have hired an outsourced company for the three flagmen and pit-out marshal. One of our previous experienced class room instructors is handling the driver's education class room instruction so we (Chinchi/Corey/David/Jared/Jeremy/Nikki) can focus on other areas of the event.

Registration details and the event waiver/information packet will be posted by the end of March. A concession stand will be set up at the track, along with an one hour lunch break for all of us at the road course. When you register, you must fill out the fields for your full name, address, cell phone number, email, car year/make/model, how many times you've ran the new TGPR track, and how many total road course events you have completed. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the event date, however you can sell your spot to someone else. Also, with the insurance we have purchased we will be doing 'officially' timed laps, and will do so for the last few hours of the day in a controlled environment for selected GTR/Supra/RX7/300ZX cars. Please specify if you want to be on 'the list' of potential cars invited to join the time attack. However, please realize that not everyone who requests to run the time attack will be able to run, as we will be on a tight scedule! We will determine who is invited to participate based on the driver's skill level and car potential, among other criteria. Last year's winner was Chris in the red RX7! Each car in the TIME ATTACK / RACE event will have 3 individual lap sessions (warm up lap and 2 timed laps), and the top 3 fastest times win a cash prize. SOLO RUNS ONLY! Safe competition is our goal, not door-banging! An ambulance with 2 paramedics will obviously be on hand the entire day.

Saturday, Oct. 25, 9:30am - 3:00pm CENTRAL time. Alabama International Dragway: The quarter-mile drag races (heads up & test-n-tune), mobile dyno, and car show events will be held at www.AlabamaInternationalDragway.com. The drag strip admission is $15/person and anyone can race for FREE, with a mobile dyno ($50/car) and car show (FREE) in the parking area! Also, there will be a $50 raffle ticket for every GT-R and Supra/RX7/300ZX in attendance (even if you don't participate in and event!)

We will offer CASH prizes for the best respective GT-R/Supra/RX7/300ZX in these areas:
- Top 3 quickest 1/4 mile times (last year's winner: Supra 6-speed 9.80@150mph)
- Top 3 fastest 1/4 mile MPHs
- Top 3 highest horsepower cars on the dyno (last year's winner: Supra 942rwhp)
- Top 3 cleanest / best put together cars in the car show
- $50 raffle ticket given to EVERY GT-R/Supra/RX7/300ZXthat comes through the gate at the dragstrip, even if you don't participate!

The hotel is a nice new Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites ($85/night) that is about 1.5 hour west of downtown Atlanta in Pell City, Alabama off I-20. We have the hotel spots arriving Thursday, October 23, and checking out Saturday, October 25 (however room rates are good through Sunday, October 26 for those of you who do not want to drive after being at the strip.)
Here are pictures of the hotel and info:

To reserve your room, call 205-884-0047 and tell them you are with the 'GT-R' or 'Speed For Sale' event in October.
YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR ROOM BEFORE OCTOBER 3 TO GET THE $85/NIGHT DISCOUNT, OTHERWISE IT'S $109/NIGHT!

If you have any questions, please email me at Blackwell@SpeedForSale.com or call us at 770-777-4774. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
