Friday night at US-131 Raceway will be having DHRA drag racing and on Saturday, the DHRA Pro-Street racers will make a stop. They are also looking to put on a sled pull that same day.

There is camping and hotels nearby, I'll get a list up of some of the spots soon.

Not through Pennsylvania, you're not. Way too many highway patrol....

If you're flying out, Grand Rapids has a nice airport. So does Lansing.

Ohio is between PA and MI, and the fuzz is far worse in the Buckeye St. Of course PA has gotten alot worse over the last two years.

Yea, but NJ is between PA and CT. I usually drive in the middle of the night back to NY and never have a problem in OH or PA, but NJ?.....I can't believe these guys have enough resources to set up traps at 4 AM.....

Eric, sounds like fun, gonna see what I can do to make it.
