Kicking the idea around for a Region 13
Bracket Race. Any interest?
Location depends on number of entries and geographic area ..Date to be announced..
Dial in only.
NO electronics..delay boxes…electric shift..
Winner takes all🏁😎
Chime in if your down for a friendly whooping 😂

Little River is 1/4 mile expect for the points races and some of the faster races.

What part of Texas are we talking about? I'm down for a spanking (giving or taking). My new engine will be ready to run in a few weeks.

Thanks for the interest Matt. 2 tracks are in east Tx and Little river is In Belton Tx just outside of Waco.
Really depends on how many and what is best for the group. Your thoughts??

Still building my '60 but would definitely like to see the show. Hoping we can fit the 6.2L into the 60, they said they haven't done it before....

East Texas would be awesome. I'm coming from New Orleans and have family I visit often just North of Houston. Waco isn't out of the question but the further East, the more likely I will be able to make it. It definitely sounds like fun and I'd love to meet more people el caminos. I got mine back in January and haven't even seen another el camino since then. Please keep me updated.

Makes me wish I still had my previous toy. I had a show/race truck. Dont laugh, it's was a 2007 Dodge Ram. It had a built 426 hemi that dyno'd 760 naturally aspirated with a 250 shot of nos. Ran the quarter in 10.65 at 128mph. Darn truck surprised a lot of folks because it was heavy and about as aerodynamic as a brick. Here are pictures of her in street trim

According to Google coming from NOLA it’s 7.5 hours to Xtreme Raceway Park and 7 hrs 55 minutes to Little River according to google, and Cedar Creek is 7 hrs 21 minutes. Xtreme is a nice facility and is only a couple years old. Texas Motorplex is 7 hrs 45 minutes from NOLA. Quite a drive for any of them.

For me Xtreme is 2 hrs 18 minutes and Cedar Creek is 2.5 hours. Texas Motorplex is about 2 hrs 10 minutes and Little River is about a half hour.

Little River and Texas Motorplex are both 1/4 mile tracks, while the other two are 1/8 mile.
