The List: How bad is your bad azz street car?

Starting on Wednesday night, April 27, 2016 and running every Wednesday night throughout the season, New England Dragway will be hosting racers with their street cars looking for a spot on “The List.”

What exactly is the list you ponder?  It’s a running list of the quickest, baddest street type drag cars in New England.  The List is a top ten accounting of street legal, registered, inspected street cars with a decided drag-car type attitude, who wish to race on the drag strip and see who’s got the quickest, baddest street type car.

There’s no purse from the track, no trophies; this is about bragging rights and respect within the street type drag-car community.

Side bets settled among the racers; well sometimes that’s just racing.   Better to race on the track than on the street any day.

The score boards are turned off for “The List” so no one can see your times.  No time slips are handed out, no one really knows just how quick or bad your ride really is.

The List began in the spring of 2015 at New England Dragway, in Epping, NH with a concerted effort by Ron Heath the track Race Director.  Ron spearheaded the creation and implementation of the class with the support of New England Dragway staff and a handful of dedicated street racers with an eye on safe organized drag racing.
