Bring your Corvette out for some Racing fun at Byron Dragway on April 19, 2003.

This event sponsored by is designed to be a “fun” event to allow you to test your Corvette in a safe environment!

NEVER RACED at a ¼ mile track before????? No Problem!!!!!!! If you ever wondered what YOUR Corvette will do on the quarter mile, this will be the way to find out! Byron does a great job helping first timers. For those who have never drag raced on a real ¼ mile track before, there will be plenty members and Corvette owners to help “show the ropes”. What better place to run your car for the first time then with a bunch of fellow Corvette owners!!!!!!

******Last year we had over 40 Corvette owners participate last year! Click on this link to review the results from the successful Event we ran last October! *****

We will have our own “Corvette Only” staging lane!
MOST of the Corvettes that attend this event are Stock and slightly modded-steet Cars.
We will do our own Great Lakes Corvette Challenge “run-off” with 3 Trophy awards!!!!!
1) Bracket Race! A single elimination “Bracket Style” shootout -based on your posted “dial in”.
2) Best Reaction Time – based on time slips during the “shoot out” on a .500 light (excluding red lights).
3) Fastest Vette! Lowest ET based on ANY Corvette time-slip during the entire day.
The more Vettes we get the bett
er! Please also pass this information on to any Vette owners that you think may be interested. You can spend the day racing just other Corvettes, and you can sneak into the Test & Tune lanes if you want to run some “brand X cars”.

**When you register, you will be given a “special run card”. Just identify your self as one of the Corvette Challenge participants. A number will be assigned to you unless you have already registered for a permanent number with the Cost to participate is $25. Racing information/announcements at Byron raceway is broadcast on 100.5 FM. Byron has a snack bar area with hotdogs, hamburgers chips, pop etc.

****I plan to get there early to get our group a good pit area. Bring a lawn chair if you want to sit. I will set up my blue canopy in the area directly West of the starting line so we have a good spot to watch the action (the same place we parked last year). The track opens at 9am. If you want to show up later that is cool too. If you want to try your Bracket racing skills, make sure you are there at 2:00 for the 1st round in the Corvette Challenge Staging Lane.
