    It looks like all of the loose ends are finally tied up. We have reserved Bradenton Motorsports Park for December 9th and 10th (Sat and Sun). This should be a killer event! Let me start by saying that Heffner Performance Inc. has covered the entire cost of a two day private track rental for all of us! That means 100% of the entry fees will go to cash payouts, but more on that in a minute.

    I was trying to think of a way to make this event appeal to just about everyone who is into fast cars. I decided to break the event up into two main categories.

    The Amateur Classes:
    The amateur classes are going to be geared towards the new guys, or perhaps the guys that just want to show up and take it easy without being super competitive. These classes will include the Show and Shine, Exhibition, and the Stock Vehicle Class.

    The Competitive Classes:
    The competitive classes are for the racers. We will have four classes including the Street Tire Shootout, the 10.50 Class, the 9.40 Class, and the Unlimited Class. Each of these classes will have a winner. That winner will receive a cash payout from the entry fees for that class.

    The Overall Championship:
    This is where things are going to get really interesting! The four winners will come together in The Overall Championship. Here they will compete in a bracket race to determine who the Overall Champion is! Along with the Championship, the Overall Champion will walk away with all of the entry fees collected from the Show and Shine and Exhibition Classes! With a good turnout, that could amount to thousands of dollars not including the class payout they already won. Now that's what I call incentive to come race!

    Besides Racing:
    There is going to be an open house/dyno day at Heffner Performance December 8th (Friday). We will schedule several evening activities for folks that want to come hang out.

    To The New Guys:
    This event will be perfect for the guys that have never been to the track. Take some time and check out the event website by clicking this link.
    http://www.heffnersperformance.com/supercarchallenge.htm
    It is full of valuable information that should get you up to speed on everything you need to know. There will be plenty of experienced guys at the event that will be more than willing to show you the ropes.

    Track Time:
    We will have our private track rental from 4pm to 9pm on Saturday the 9th, however, the track opens for a public test and tune session at 9am that morning. This gives you the option of getting there as early as you like (for a small entry fee of about $20) and getting your car setup and dialed in. We have the track to ourselves all day on Sunday the 10th from 10am to 5pm. As everyone know, December + Bradenton = Really Good Conditions! This is going to be a killer event.

    The Website:
    I put together a site that contains quite a bit of information about the event. Please take the time to look it over and be familiar with how things will be done. The site contains everything you need to know, from travel arrangements, to rules, to all of the class information. This is the link to the site:
    http://www.heffnersperformance.com/s...rchallenge.htm

    Preregistration:
    Please take the time to preregister. You will save a little money, because the entry fees will be a little higher at the gate. It also helps us gage how many people are coming. Just click on the "preregistration" link at the top left corner of any page on the site and follow the instructions. Also, if there is a ton of interest, we might have to limit the number of participants. Preregistering will guarantee you a spot.

    At the end of the day, I know that you can't please everyone all of the time, but this is a good compromise that give the majority of viper owners a chance to really enjoy themselves. Please remember that a lot of effort has gone and will go into this event. Let's all have a great time and I look forward to seeing everyone there.

    Sounds like a great opportunity for a rookie like myself to bring my creampuff TT, and get some great advice from the pro racers on this site. My goal is to get into the high 10's on 20's...like you Gary J. :headbang:
