    What are some of the drag strips in the area (IL/WI) that would be open for me to run the truck at? Where do you guys run your trucks at? I wanna get some solid times and speeds and was wondering if there are. What's it cost to make a few passes?

    Great Lakes Dragaway is just up there in WI, Joliet IL has the big NHRA track/Nascar Speedway, and for basic test and tunes, around here we go to US41 (IHRA) in Morocco IN. Those are probably the closest ones you'll find.

    I was looking at Route 66 dragway on line and saw they do have some weekends for test and tunes. I've been there every year for the Drags and Cup races. Might look at going down there for some passes. Correct me if I'm wrong, did Great Lakes Dragway close? I know Wilmont Speedway was closing last year, and maybe I have the two confused. I was just curious who had taken theirs down the track, and where they have gone.

    If you get down this way, let me know. I live 4 miles from the track. Beers and bonfires are in order.

    Yeah, that's right. My grandparents live about 5-10 minutes from the track as well. They are just off of I-55 and Rt. 52. A good reason to to the the track and stop by to see the GPs.
