The 2005 SRT Nationals are ready!!!! The event in February was a HUGE success and it's going to happen again in 2005! Call you boss, request vacation, and if he says no, then you might want to quit your job because this year is going to be AWESOME! We're doing a full High performance driving school, drag racing, road racing, and tons of other stuf this year; not to mention the car show and vendors lane. Plus, the whole weekend is only $150!!! Here's what you get for your money!

Friday, April 8th: SRT Nationals Driver Education. This is the same school that we put on last year, but with some MAJOR changes. The morning sessions will be with instructors in the car, the afternoon sessions will be solo or with instructors, depending on experience. There will be classroom sessions in the morning for EVERYONE. Also, it's time to get the cars in and start getting ready for the car show. Be on the lookout for a couple of "special" instructors! Drag racing right after the driver's ed school!

Saturday, April 9th: SRT Nationals Time Trial Competition and Car Show. This is how the Time Trial Competition will work. We will run on the ½ Mile "Peanut" at No Problem Raceway. You will get 3 or 5 Laps to make your best time. ALL 3 or 5 LAPS WILL BE INCLUDED IN YOUR FINAL TIME! The person with the quickest 3 or 5 Lap time will win a trophy and the title "SRT Driver of the Year". You will also win FREE ADMISSION to the 2006 SRT Nationals! The driver with the quickest SINGLE lap will with a Trophy. YOU NEED TO RENT OR PROVIDE YOUR OWN TRANSPONDER TO ENTER THIS EVENT! Transponder rental will be provided at a $15 charge.

We will split this up into a morning session and an afternoon session. In the morning, you will get a chance to learn the peanut and make some laps with 2 other drivers on the track with you. This will be a lead/follow type of thing. We will let you guys out 3 at a time, but separated by 5 seconds. The idea is to catch the person in front of you and learn the track. After lunch, competition starts. During the competition, you will be on the track BY YOURSELF! This is a cross between SCCA SOLO 1 and SOLO 2. Think of it as an Autocross on a road course without all the cones.

Bring your Paintball guns and gear with you as well, there's a really nice wooded area near the track for some paintball action.

Saturday Night, April 9th: SRT Owners Club Appreciation Party. I'm looking at getting Last Call Nightclub (www.lastcallclub.com) in Thibodaux, LA (about 25 minutes from the track) With a LIVE band and having an Owners Club Appreciation Party. Being an Owners Club member will get you FREE Admission to the party and possibly a few free drinks. I'll be drunk as hell, so chances are I'll be buying QUITE a few rounds. This is going to be a freaking BLAST!!!! I'll also try to provide transportation to and from the hotel and/or track.

Sunday, April 10th: SRT Nationals Grand Bayou Road Race. This is a FULL BLOWN, wheel to wheel action road race. Your car must pass a tech inspection (i.e., you need a cage) and you must be licensed to race in this sort of race (NASA, SCCA, etc.). You will need a pretty much full blown race car to run in this. This is not limited to SRT only vehicles. You can race anything you want, as long as you pass tech and are licensed to do so. Think of guys like neonracer88. He races an Accord, but has an SRT. He's bringing the Accord to race and the SRT to play. Cost to race in the Grand Bayou race is $75 plus transponder rental.

So start planning now folks. The Nationals are coming again! Last year's National Meet was a HUGE success and we're hoping to top it this year. Later in the year means that all you northern people can attend! This year is going to be the best ever! Keep checking the site for more updates.

those who attend will love "No Problem" racetrack

it's a fairly new track and very nice. a friend of mine was lucky enough to line up against the SRT10 that holds the top speed record, at No Problem. this was the post of the race,,,,,


I raced THE EXACT SRT-10 that set the world record at the track friday....interesting
I went to the track this past Friday. There was a Dodge day or something there. There were at least 3 Vipers and maybe a dozen SRT-4s. AND there was the SRT-10 ViperTruck. The actual one that was used to break the Guiness World Record for Top Speed (pickup). Well my truck being basically stock (I have added a conestyle K&N filter) I figured here is the Golden opertunity to see Which of these trucks is in fact the Quater Champion. Now those of you saying to yourselves -I know you added a ram-air hood too- let me say to you that it isn't functional yet as I haven't sealed the system so that the airbox gets pressurized. Anyway it was 70degrees and there was a fair bit of humidity (~65%), about a typical South Louisiana day. My truck had been running anywhere from 13.51 to 13.63 on this night. So the SRT-10 makes it way into the staging lanes for a pass in the left lane and I quickly got next to it for a pass in the right lane. The Gods must have been smiling on us as it worked out perfectly and we were set to race each other. This was a heads up contest because eliminations hadn't started for the bracket racing yet and we were running a time trial style pass. So we staged and the lights came down. And we both left the line without incident. I looked up and saw that the ViperTruck got a better reaction off the light than I had (he cut a .023 to my .041 light). I still pulled a considerable lead on him as I knew I would have to because those trucks should trap much higher than me. Well at the finish line the race was too close for me to tell. I mean our trucks were literally in a dead tie (to the eye). Then I saw that he had the win light!!! "FUCH!!!!!":rant: I said. Then when I got my time slip I saw that my truck ran its worste pass of the night at 13.738 but still out ET'd his 13.750:headbang: . His RT is what gave him the win not his SRT:wink: . I felt so much better about this race now. I also cut my worste 60' foot of the night on that pass too with a 2.063 after cutting 1.97's and 1.98's all night. I guess I may have been a little anxious and overcompensated for that. Any way the results were that the Lightning was the quicker Truck:headbang: but the SRT driver cut a better light.


My hats off the Dodge guys as they were very nice and good sports. The fellow driving the SRT-10 didn't have a problem showing everyone the truck and talking about it to us. I was pleased with the night.
