2011 Fall Nationals Recap -- All Motor Shootout

The IPG Racing Team traveled to Englishtown, New Jersey this past weekend for the 2011 Fall Nationals and more specifically to compete in the All Motor Shootout with the newly finished car. The IPG All Motor Civic Reincarnation is still freshly completed and with only a handfull of passes the trip was sure to be one filled with a steep learning curve. In testing the best the team could net were several 11.0 @ 125 mph passes at the local 1/4 mile track in Orlando, Florida. Not changing one thing on the car for the first round qualifier in Englishtown...

This goes throughout the entire Sport Compact industry from the...

So this is a Blog right? Then I might as well rant a bit. Over the years I have been pretty opinionated over rules, trends, and the general direction of Sport Compact Drag Racing. I have to give credit where credit is due and that is to the organizers and promoters that put these events on. That is a heck of a lot of work that I know is extraordinarily hard to get done and keep everyone happy. I know that that is not a venture that I ever want get involved in as I see what the current organizers...
