Its like a 5.5 hr drive. Apparently dates are confirmed, but the event itself is not bc of sponsorship not quite finalized. But seems like a popular enough event, where it should be a non issue. There's also another one in September

After looking around at a few pages... the 2010 ruls state sport compact classes only. 2012 lists nothign of the sort. I am curious if my V8 powered FC would be able to run or if it would get the boot for having the domestic motor. .... which is most likely the case.

From what i am reading, if its a V8 Swap car you will only be allowed to run in the bracket racing aspect of the drag racing. No other classes like such as the Street classes. I am sure more info will come forward as the event gets closer

Drag, Drift, Autox, Road Course Time Attack. 3 days of straight racing and party madness! I mean MADNESS too. Greatest event I've ever been to, drunk as shit the whole time, sluts, yes your heard that right SLUTS are everywhere for all you single guys, they aren't shy either. Its at Brainered International Raceway, the fastest drag strip in the world. They have food, beer, hard liqueur. A bar is open the whole time, and at night you camp there on the track with a bunch of people who party like no other. Then wake up and get to racing in the morning.

Last years event was amazing, drifting is really cool to check out since there are some Pro/Am guys that come. The Central Imports Crew went last year, Midwest Exclusive was there, all the Iowa Drift guys where there. Its about a 6 hour drive from Des Moines depending on how much you speed and if constructions sucks (there was a lot of construction last year, sucked ass to drive through but oh well).

One other thing DSport Magazine came and did coverage on the event, here's your chance to be in a magazine!

Unfortunately last year whoever did video didn't do a very good one, so I'll just show you 2011 instead. Oh and one last thing throughout all three days there's FREE NOS Energy drinks handed out everywhere you go and the NOS girls are there as well.

Last year it was $15 per day to get in, and then they had package deals if you bought multiple days at once. As for racing Drag was $25 for practice (friday) and $35 for class (Saturday qualify, Sunday Race). Drifting was $25 a day or if you bought all three at once it was only $60. Auto X was $25 a day. Road course was $160 per day.

It looks as if V8 swapped cars can only do bracket racing as far as drag goes.... Lame...

Where did you see that at? I didn't check out any of the drag racing when I was there so idk how it's setup or what you can/can't run.
