Cool Kauai Raceway Park

there's some ok photos in the gallery.... it reminded me of the dragstrip at Hawaii Raceway Park.

the people there were great! Bill Turk and Chris Lowe and the rest of the gang were very welcoming.

the NHRA dragstrip looks aged and there's a fairly short dirt road you have to drive down just to go there. its about 30 miles from the airport, its a long haul and at night when you come back its dark...very dark and nobody around.

overall, its a pretty neat setup they have considering there's not that many people on the island like there is on Oahu. its racetrack and you can race there!

that is all .............

well, there weren't that many ProET cars 11's and under... like 7 or so. there was one dragster runnin 7's carburated (no electronics at the track)...

there's a V8 musclecar class with about 10 or so. street cars also about a dozen or so, in them there was a pack of civics and imports that were running, some were in the 11's.

there was about 10 motorcycles (Harley had a nice display) one guy on a pit bike running 27's he was in it for the points. and of course there were about 5 jr.dragsters.

i figured (kinda counted) there was about 200 heads total spectators and racers. it was $12 to get in. if i heard him right, the buy back in the bracket was $50, i'm not sure how much it was to run and what the payout was. we forgot to ask like dummies

i was more concerned with the condition of the track. i saw a couple of cars get loose and there was some bumps on the track. depending on how fast you run and how your setup is, you might have probs... 8's or lower... the dragster seemed to be just fine over the rough areas.

we woulda been racing if the dang super ferry was running. i'd still be there right now waiting to come home. they told us there's more ProET cars that will be out in November.

so yeah... been going to kauai. last month i saw a guy on a bike eat it. then on this past weekend i saw a dragster crash and go over the guard rail. both racers were reportedly ok. it was scary to watch and the track was shut down causing limited test and tune runs on Saturday.

i have very few pics because i didn't bring my camera, i only had my phone camera and i don't have a way to download to my new computer yet.

its so fricken hot during the day over there, at night the track gets quicker and it takes some getting used to in order to dial in a good number. electronics are not allowed over there so you really have to learn the track and have consistent runs/times in order to win. track conditions seem to change month to month.

there is a decent (small) amount of folks and runs are pretty quick, not like HRP or what i read about Maui and having to wait a long time.

overall it is a blast, i can't wait to drive again. we've been talking about taking another car up there, but i really wanted to use the ferry. maybe the new mayor can help that. they (kauai) seem to need more visitors as i was listening to the radio and talk about low occupancy rates at the hotels. duh... what?

in the meanwhile i'll support my team as we try to go all the way... auuuryte, the honolulu boys will be back baby...

hey... i never thought about getting some stickers to take up there to pass out. hmmm.. HT world domination

i have a couple extra different HT stickers on hand.... and i have an extra buildthetrack sticker or two. i was saving them for a couple of cars but i can get more from Mike and Tom easy enough when i need them...

i'll bring a few stickers with me, but did you want more than that? the stickers i have are in white, i only have one HT sticker in red.

Black Eclipse; usually the only DSM out there. Good to see a few more street cars making it into our class.

Ahh, that truck is pretty fast. I was actually sitting in staging, next one up when they decided to cancel the race. Only made one pass that day.

I think I messed up on both of my runs with Pew; bogged one and rolled the beam on the other, lol. Launching is especially tricky for me with low profile tires on 18's, but I finally did consistent low 1.8 60's this time. Even got a few 1.7's, but I was lucky to go right after a big dragster put down some good rubber on the starting line. Gotta work on my reaction times, though.
