32 Pro Mod cars up on the mountain may be worth flying west for. Hats off to Wes Buck for creating this event, the sport needs as many people with his passion for drag racing (particularly on the promotion side) as we can get. And, his magazine Drag Illustrated is top notch.

It was a fun event last year. I wish they had the Friday night shootout again this year. They are going to draw names just prior to the first round. He has said that he had over 50 cars interested in coming so he should be able to get 32 confirmed cars to show up.

Yep, last year's event was great and I'm looking forward to this year's as well. The shootout drama was exciting and I agree, I wish they were having it again this year. I also think the shootout helps as it gives you some alternates available just in case. If they invite only 32 cars and any of them damage their stuff in the test sessions the week of, or in the Friday night time trials, then you go into Saturday with only 29, 30, 31 cars. If I were Wes, I'd invite 35 cars. Lock 31 of them into the field and have the remaining 4 cars race on Friday night for the 32nd spot and some cash. This way, if a car or two can't make the call for 1st round on Saturday night, you have 3 cars on standby who would love to get in on the action.

Really glad to see some nitrous cars on the list!

Ha, I just re-read my post. ONLY 32 cars! Ha. Whether it's 28, 29, or 32 cars going into Saturday's event, it will be awesome!

I was thinking the same thing. Commit to 31 cars and let a few cars battle it out on Friday night for the 32nd spot. They are having a burnout contest on Friday night so that should be fun.

I've read that Todd Tutterow and Marc Caruso have been invited. Still looking like 8 or 9 cars are needed to fill out the 32 car field. Lots of big names missing and not just the nitrous cars, who I think feel that they are at a disadvantage in the thin air. Any updates? The race is 4 weeks from this weekend.

Biehle is supposed to be there. Even though he isn’t on the list on the site he has been mentioned as being there. Also scheduled to attend but not listed are the two you mentioned (Tut and Caruso) Jeffery Barker, Scott Oskas, Rick Hord and Carl Stevens. That takes the list up to 28.
