Drag Racing in Mexico

As many know I have semi retired and bought a House on the beach in Mexico
I am about 30 Min from the capital of the Yucatan, Merida and found that at 10:00 on Friday night a drag strip opened , I will never get racing out of my blood so headed to the "drag strip" to find it is a road leading to a manufacturing plant (closed that has a stop light bolted about 3 feet off the center line and they plug a cable into and hit 2 yellow and 1 green switch manualy m NO timer , no tree , no burn out box ,

It was interesting , I have joined 200 pesos (about $16.00us with todays exchange rate) and now I get in free to race or watch ever Friday night

May build me a little Focus to play with down here or pick up a used ST

Tom
