Drag strip rumors...

I just got a line from someone who lives in Akron, IA, and it sounds fairly interesting.

It seems that someone bought the airfield out there and they're going to try turning it into a drag strip. They're going to try hauling ass to get it ready before the summer's out, but even if it has to hold over until next summer, it's better than nothing around here in Sewer City.

Just thought y'all might find it interesting.

Small airport with a runway. It's currently only handling private aircraft (mostly small prop planes).

It's a little room with pilots in it, but thats not important right now."

Sounds like fun :p I've seen a drag race video from mexico. They had a used traffic light for the timing. They had dirt at the end of the track and whom ever kicked up dirt up won. :p
