We hope to get test and tune strarted at 2:00. The route we will be taking will start at the city hall and go down Rt. 302 to the air port. Its only approx.4 to 5 miles. Bring a camera and get ready. It will sound like thunder and be the coolest thing to happen in Prestonsburg since the burnout show in the middle of town!!!!!!!!!!

Are you talking about Rt 321? Rt 302 goes around the lake and through Van Lear.

Actually turbos and superchargers can be effective off the line. You can avoid turbo lag with a turbo by pre spooling the turbo. You can rev your car up to your cars power band. No lag. Turbos can start making power as early as 1500 RPM. It can achieve max boost as early as 2500 rpm. And keep producing power throughout the entire power band. Superchargers are of course belt driven. A supercharger kicks in as soon as you hit the gas. Will it make it's max boost right off the line. No. Will it be in it's max power band right off the line? No. But then again you won't be in your max power band right off the line either. If a supercharger is set at 8 psi at 6000 rpms. So of course. A supercharger runs at the same speed of the engine. So a supercharger set to 8 psi at 6000 rpms would only create 3.5 to 4 pounds of boost at 3000 rpm. But if someone has a competition supercharger. They can be set for 20 to 50 pounds of boost if the motor is set up to handle. So if a car is set to 30 psi at 6000 rpm. It would already be making 15 pounds of boost at 3000 rpm. And would be very close to making it's max boost not long after that. If a person can keep their rpm in the high rpm range they have a chance. That is why most people recommend to launch at about 4500 rpm. Because you are close to your cars power band.

Yes, it is on Route 321. Just take the old 23 from Prestonsburg to Paintsville.

It would have been alot better if they would have left all the smart asses out of it. alot of people that where there was getting pisses over the smart ass workers. One dark haired dark skin girl on the far side of the track was a bitch.

Next time they need to have parking on the grass. Need signs telling people where to get the arm bans.

A few tweaks and you all could have a good thing going.

I was just wondering about this. I didn't get to go but I wanted to. I was just wondering how many cars actually showed up. What type of cars? Who was the fastest? Hope they have something like that again soon. I would like to go.

I went up there.. The traffic was crazy. Parking on both sides of the main road. You would have had to walk half mile or so.. I wanted to watch....but not that bad. Down on Tulsa (Rt 52 ) is a cool place to go.. $10.00 to get in. Races every Saturday 2 pm till everybody runs. Some events have lasted past mid-night.

Just came back like Mckinley said a few tweaks here and there they will have a good thing going. Me and family had a great time there wasn't any drunks staggering around or pillheads foaming from the mouth. Kent done a hell of a job running his mouth and keeping it interesting and not letting it drag along between lineups. The worse thing about it was seating the freebies sitting on the side of the raod had the best view of all.
