Ford vs. GM vs. Dodge compact shootout *feeler
 
Hey guys,
my name is scott and i represent the GM compact group in austin.
Im here because i am trying to gauge interest on a possible event for next year.
Currently our group hosts an event once a year called GM LoneStarBash,
pretty similar to your focus round up. However we have ours at a 1/4 mile track and have a judged car show as well as heads up elimination racing + TnT.
Up to this point our event has mainly supported gm compact cars. However next year we are trying to make things more interesting,bigger and better.
We would like to drop the GM off the event and make it a Domestic compact event.
We bring cars in from all over texas for this and it is a great regional event, we have already begun gauging interest in the dodge community and they seem to be very interested and excited about this.
Combining our bash with perhaps your round up could have some serious potential, add dodge compacts to the mix and we could have some real fun.
I will personally be out at the round up in austin on april 10th. you cant miss me ill be the odd ball that rolls up in a cavalier haha we can have a more serious discussion about it then i hope.
Till then i would just like to gauge everyones interest and here any positives or negatives you might have, as well as ideas. i am open to all and look forward to hearing what you think about this.
thanks for your time.

This sounds interesting. I have wanted some kind of domestic compact get together. I am all for this, personally. :)

This sounds like a great idea, where will the event take place next year? With our Focus Roundup we normally rotate it between the big cities of Dallas, Austin and Houston.

We rotate ours as well. different location every year...however a central location would probably be best for something like this. I was considering temple,tx. theres a 1/4 mile in little river. however my goal would be to get texas motorplex again in Ennis tx.

Sounds good Scott. W'll be glad to have you come out to Round Up. What other details do you have? Maybe next weekend we can talk about it more at the sat night meet.

I was telling Scott last night that this would be a great idea! I was hopeing every body would jump on this so we can get something together.

Inevitable, there is always someone who has to self promote.
