I need a number of those planning to enter the Nationals drag racing competition. Please post here if you are racing. We have added a stock class for those with stock Bullitts. The rules for this class are:

Street tires only - no drag radials, slicks etc.
No performance mods IE: gears, headers, etc.

Basically a stock Bullitt. CAI/aftermarket filter/aftermarket shifter are the only permissable mods.

Fastest N/A Bullitt - No power adders superchargers, turbos, NOS etc. Any other performance mods/tire combinations allowed.

Fastest Bullitt - Anything goes.

All time slips must be handed in at the car show prior to 7PM.

If I get 3230 back soon enough to get broken in well enough to open her up at Tulsa, then I will be entering the Fastest NA class.

So, an otherwise stock Bullitt except an aftermarket midpipe would be in the fastest NA Bullitt category? Not wanting to flame, but a midpipe MIGHT give you as much hp as a cai. And it wouldn't have a chance against a B with heads,cams,headers,gears etc. I guess there's just no class that a car like mine would fit into. I'll have fun watching though.

Here's the problem. Where do we draw the line? Allow CIA, mid pipes/aftermarket exhaust and gears in the stock class? In the past we just had Fastest Bullitt period. So that class was very limited to those that spent the money. We are trying to include those that do not mod their Bullitts and still want to race.

The Bullitt Shootout is the real racing event. We have classes based on ETs and it's heads up racing. Can't do that at this event. Bracket only.

I guess as long as it's bracket racing it wouldn't even matter. I was thinking it might all be heads up based on those classes. Nevermind.

I think it's very fair the way it's set up. Having a stock class is very important...there's quite a few Bullitt's that have little or no mods at all. Thanks for putting this together!

We really are not racing. It's the car with the fastest times in each class.


Ok, is it fastest by time or fastest by speed? As a racer, to me it's fastest by time, but for other non-racers, they might think fastest by speed. One could have the faster time, but a slower speed over another who might have had a slower time but a faster speed. So, who would actually have been the fastest?? And in heads up racing, one could win with a slower time but a faster reaction time over their opponet who ran the faster time with a slower reaction time. This is known as a holeshot win. Who is the fastest in this case??


And then there is Paul, who thinks he is faster than a speeding bullet, but can't even tell red from green. And to hear him tell it, it will be the Tower Dude's fault anyway!


Yes, I am trying to be difficult! :badgrin: :badgrin: :badgrin:

OK, for the "non racers" it will be the lowest elapsed time in each class. By time not by speed..... :D

BTW If you red light that time slip will not count. Has to be a good run. Just a little info for Paul.
