SlipStream 1/2 Mile - East Coast Event

Hi Gents, Its been a while but we have some big news for those of us on the Beast Coast.

For years we have watched the western states participate in the most FUN racing events we've ever seen - The 1/2 Mile

As older BMW fans would know, Me and my friends have a passion for racing, of any type; we brought Roll Racing into the mainstream with sophisticated timing equipment, and now set the standard for 1/2 Mile Drags

You can see the JULY 1/2 Mile Event Information (and registration) here:

FB Page & Updates:

Some of the key components of creating the absolute MOST LEGITIMATE 1/2 Mile race in the NATION are:

Absolute PERFECTION in timing measurement- We have a defined starting line with staging beams exactly like a NHRA dragstrip; We have defined Finishlines for both 1/4 and 1/2 miel that will read ET and MPH

We dont count rolling start races for 1/2 mile "records"

We dont set a race distance to exceed 2640ft from start to finish

We dont "play" with the timing system to incur falsely high reading MPH's

We incorporated 60ft measurements as well - this lets you know exactly how the car is performing so that you know when and where can apply more power.

We continuously sweep the runway for FOD and other debris

We allow full scale burnouts to heat those tires up

We spray the track with actual dragtsrip track prep so that us RWD people can actually use that TQ

ALL OF OUR RUNS ARE WITHIN .35 OF VBOX ( using 1ft roll-out)

This validates our claims of accuracy and expertise

In addition, our layout is geographically superior to any other:
True race distance of 2640'
Slope is 1% decline for race portion

Shutdown distance of 3100'
Last 1000' is 1% incline to help slow-down the cars

Track Elevation is just over 1500', with average summer DA of 1500'

You can expect and equivalent of Atco or MIR level performance


The cost to race per day is slightly higher, however, we are the only organization in the Nation to offer a RAIN DATE AND/OR CREDIT for a future event. That means you will never lose your money

Also, we keep participation to a minimum, 80 cars/day - this means that you spend more time racing, and less time wasting.

OUR GOAL is always to ensure you are so tired from racing so much, that you call it quits before we reach the end of the day - We continuously succeed in this en-devour

Additionally, Not only are we offering the most legitimate 1/2 Mile race, its located just 3 1/2 hours from Long island, Philadelphia, and Baltimore - you couldn't ask for a more central location.

Here is a list of all validated Runs from the Private Invitational Day we held last month:


Here are a few videos of the day:
