In a few months there will only be one drag strip in AZ!
Firebird Raceway is officially closing! The last drag and drift will be in March. I plan on being there.
SpeedWorld is also closing in the next few months!
So we are left with SIR in the southeast part of Tucson. Vail. For me it is fine. I just ran a personal best of 12.21 there. The good thing is it is a good .4 slower than the other two tracks. So the odds of getting the boot for under 11.5 will be hard to accomplish.
The very bad thing for you guys in Phoenix is that this track is even 50 minutes away for me as I live in the northwest part of Tucson. It will be a long ride for you guys in Phoenix.
Hopefully someone will start working on a track in Casa Grande or Phoenix soon.
