I would like to invite everyone to the 4th Annual "A Day At The Strip". The event is held on July 21st - 22nd 2007. The show is at the Mid-American Air Center in Lawrenceville, Illinois. This is where the "World Series Of Drag Racing" was held in 1956. So this gives you a chance to take your vehicle down the original drag strip (single timed runs only). This is where the first 150 MPH pass was made! Lots of history here. Saturday is an Autocross Sponsored by Air Ride Technologies & Bowler Performance Transmissions. Sunday is the Single timed runs on the 1/4 mile strip.

Come and enjoy the weekend. There is a car show, BBQ Chicken dinner, Drag Strip (now a air strip), Autocross, and Bands on Saturday night. For $20.00 you get in both days, which includes a T-shirt, BBQ Chicken dinner for two, unlimited runs on the Autocross on Saturday & on the Drag Strip on Sunday (we use this term lightly, there is a lot of cars that show up so you have to wait your turn), Car Show entry and entrance to watch the bands Saturday evening.
Where else can you do all that for $20.00? Take the drive and have some fun, tell your friends!

That sounds like a incredible bang for the buck and hope people can take advantage of it. Take pics and let us know what we missed!!!
