Not DNI, but something close. Just like Warren did, he called it DNI Lite. Not renting the track but will be running at SilverDollar Raceway in Reynolds Ga. with the Import Shootout October 19th 2013.

 

 

 I did a posting in the forum above this one. SilverDollar raceway is having an import race on May 19th and October 19th.

 

 

Please read below and see if we can make this happen. I do miss getting together with everyone as well. I used to look forward to SEZ and DNI. I truley miss them.

 

I have had some interest by pming some members and posting. It seems a lot of members are like us and miss seeing everybody and meeting new people. Please read below what I wrote. Hopefuly we can some interest and with a head count later on this year and possible get a motel to host us with a grop rate.

 

 

Thanks, please read below.

 

 

Hello to all, my brother Jerry and I were talking over the weekend while we were at the drag strip (Pageland) about the SEZ and DNI shootouts we used have and how we missed the event and seeing all of the HybirdZ members. It was great fun and met a lot of nice people.

 

The events we attended for SEZ and DNI were done at Silverdollar Raceway in Reynolds Ga. This seemed to be a centralized location for all the people to meet. We stayed at motels not far from the track and had like a big car show / gathering that (Friday) day / night before and then we all went to the drag strip.

 

I noticed SilverDollar is having a Import shootout on May 19th and also October 19th. Was wondering how many members / people would like to all get together again. Of course no track rentals, we will just be part of the import shootout and do some racing / meeting everybody again.

 

If members Scottie, Warren and Wigenout (Gabe) are still around maybe they can step up and get something organized again. If not then, if enough interest in shown we can paln to do this. I know May 19th is really to soon but October 19th is not.

 

Everybody please chime in and give us your thoughts. Y0u do not have to have a race car or even a Datsun / Nissian to join in. I know Wayne sold his Z and now has a turbo camaro, it would just be great to do something like before.

 

 

John

I rarely ever visit the site anymore and was not contacted directly. I heard about it from Z-Gad.

Cannot commit but will try my best. The problem is getting the car there. While it is street-driven, I would not even think about driving up as the only wheels/tires I have for it are the ones I race on and I do not have a truck/trailer. Moroso DS2 skinnies and 275 MT-Pro DRs and those familiar with the MT-Pros know what I mean.

That date is a little ways off so there is still hope I can find a way. Glad to see there is still interest in getting together. I sure have some good memories.

Glad to hear from you Scottie, When I talked to Zgad he said he would let you know. Hopefully since it is a way's off maybe you can line up a trailer / truck. It sure would be good to see you and your ride.

Guest Motel / Hotel Information:

 

 

I checked with Warren and he said we use to stay at the Comfort Inn in Byron GA. I searched and it appears now it is a Quality INN. Same place just different name. I asked about the group rate and it is $53.99 per room, need at least 3 rooms rented to get this rate. I think he said normal rate was $69.00 per room.

 

I will call again in September closer to end of month an re-verify this. Counting down the months and days. Getting closer.

 

Thanks,

 

John

Time is getting closer. I did research more about the Import Showdown October 19th at Silver Dollar Raceway. The track is being rented by the import guys, the rules for the track still apply. To me it is just like SEZ and DNI did. All the profits go back to the car club. They are allowing all cars to run with the exception of V8 cars we will have to run in the TNT (Test and Tune). I was in hopes we could get in some competition but they do not allow V8's to run.

 

We are still hyped about going and seeing everybody, we just do not want to make a 4hr trip and no one show.  Below are the rules for the Import Showdown talking about the number of cylinders:

 

Rules That Apply to All Classes
· 3, 4, 5, or 6 Cyl Vehicles Only or those with Rotary motors. V8 can run TNT

 

I hope this does discourage anyone from coming.

 

 

I guess it is time for Roll Call.

 

Please let us know who is planning on attending. We had a pretty good list going / chiming in. This will dictate if we head down Friday afternoon to meet up with everybody or just go directly to the track on Saturday.

 

I will check in with the guest Hotel about rates again if anyone responds back on the Roll Call.

 

Thanks,

 

John

No problem dale,

 

We will not make it either due to issues with Jerry's valve springs. We could bust our ass and fix the issue to make it but the no response to roll car we are just not going to push it. Maybe next time if a member or group tries to do a get together.

 

Thanks
