Big Bend Open Road Race (TX)

I haven't seen any Foci at this race in years past, as this is kind of a "Vette Race". But, since all cars are allowed, and there are several months before the race kicks off (April 22-25 2009), I'd see if anyone wants to get in on it. I have worked the race a couple of times, but never raced in it, but I'm thinking of entering this year just to be able to say I did it.
Here's the official website if Anyone is interested:
http://www.bborr.com/

And don't worry, You won't be competeing against the S7s and Z06s, this is a tech speed rated race and all cars are classed together in Their speed bracket.

Get on it, guys! I don't wanna be the sole representative of the Ford Focus, as I'm sure Mine is a poor example of what We can do.

You should race. Do you know what safety equipment you need if any.

Well I remember a guy a couple of years ago had to install a 5 point harness to His Saleen S7. This was His DD, and had driven from Maryland to race. But there is a complete rule book on their website. And yes, I plan on entering this year, just for S&G. I wont place, I don't intend to. Maybe after the swap. Also, FI is allowed, but no N2O.

One more thing. Only 160 racers can enter, so Whoever wants to race had better register ASAP

guys i have raced in that race and others with them. You dont need much to be in the lower classes.
fire extinguisher mounted and some rated tires.
Its when you get into the 130s and above you need all the good stuff.
