Be ready for the arm drop because if your late your done.
Grudge racing has been around for years – generally found on the streets but race tracks have opened up their gates to accommodate for some legal racing. Just about anywhere in the country you can find a track that has a grudge night along with test and tune. Most have relied upon the theory of keeping it off the streets and on the track where it belongs. But grudge racing may not look like your average quarter mile drag race at first. Some will go heads up, some may get the drop or even from a dig. All terminology which may be common with grudge racing and just the type of things you will witness at this years King of the Grudge III.
The DotNetBoyz have reached out to the YellowBullet community to try and bring out the baddest grudge racers in the country.
The DotNetBoyz out of New York have put together one of the wildest events to hit the north east and they cater to the grudge racing community. Only a few rules will be enforced, they are a maximum tire size of 29×10.5 (non W tire), must retain stock frame rails and no sissy sticks (aka wheelie bars). The DotNetBoyz have taken all the excitement of street racing and brought it to Atco Raceway where you will race on a un-prepped race track just like street. While there are no limitations in engine size or combination you will have to be quite the strategist on how you win a race and using all that power under the hood.
May 27th 2010 is the date so line them up and get ready for the arm drop as the competition is tight and just about anything can and will happen. Last years event goes to show that being the fastest doesn’t always guarantee you a win as was proven when “Petey” took down the powerhouse radial car of Scott Bitzer. “Petey” also is one of the minds behind the “King of the Grudge” and he went on to win his own race.
