Mazdatrix Drag Car


06/28/00
The year 2000 has been pretty empty for us -- we ran the 02/26/00 Saturday at Pomona (track was consistently oiled, then Sunday was rained out), then lost the engine on Saturday at LACR/Palmdale on 03/03/00. We were far too busy (business still always has to come first) to get the car ready for the LACR/Palmdale event 5/8/00.

The Fontana event in September is only 1/8 mile!! Since Dave considers 1/4 mile in 8, 9, or 10 seconds WAY too short of driving time anyway (after 24 years of Pro and Amatuer road racing), we are not planning on going to Fontana.

The October event at Pomona has been cancelled (and moved to Houston?).

There is an NIRA event at Las Vegas in November we may attend.

All-in-all it is a very dismal scene for import drag racing in the southern California area. The number of events seems to have decreased over the last few years, and attendance (both cars and spectators) at the events that occur has been very low.
We are not sure of the 2001 schedule, but really hope it is better than this year.
