November 7th... If you have not done this event yet, now is your chance. NOTE: This event is limited to heavy, American, Rear wheel drive cars. The dragstrip will not be littered with ricers, bikes, or otherstuff that does not meet the criteria. You get to pick on somebody your own size.


From the website at www.sshs9.com

SSHS9 will be held at Atlanta Dragway on Saturday, November 7th, 2009. It is located in Commerce, GA, about an hour north of downtown Atlanta on I-85.

This premier event, will settle on the drag strip which rear wheel drive Mopar, GM, or Ford heavyweight has what it takes to win 4 bracket racing ET classes, and 1 all-out heads up class.

This event will match some of the fastest Chargers, 300Cs, Impalas, Caprices, Mark VII's, Mark VIII's, Marauders and Crown Vics on the planet, along with any other heavyweight domestic car or truck weighing in at 4000 pounds or more with driver. That would also make some late model heavyweight pony cars like the Camaro SS, Challenger R/T, and the Mustang GT 500 eligible to compete if you meet the 4000 pound with driver weight requirements.

Contestants are competing for SSHS trophy's in their individual ET bracket racing class, that leads into the King of the Hill bracket ET competition where the 4 ET bracket winners race for the King of the Hill trophy. The event wraps up with the Big Dog class finals, and trophy presentations.

There will be a car show showcasing some of the finest customs, classics, hot rods, and late model rides in the south, with trophy awards. Before and between SSHS rounds, the track will also be open for test and tune drag racing all day for rear wheel drive cars and trucks that pay the race admission price and pass tech inspection, so there is something to do for everyone!

I'm recovering from putting on my daughters wedding this past Sat. so I doubt I'll be running the track this year. I'm coming up for some gear head bench racing, parking lot party therapy and volunteering to help with the goin's on.

Oh, and I'll be driving the Caddy. (still got a garage full of mods to install.:rant2:)

Congratulations to SSStealth!!!

First place in his class running VERY consistent times all day!

AND won King of the Hill with the best package (RT, Dial, etc.) of all the class winners!

Way to represent the Cadillac Brothers.

Maybe this will help get some more folks out for next year. It was announced that SSHS 10 will happen again. Same Bat Time. Same Bat Channel.

There was pretty fair representation for the line. In addition to Gene and me, there was a DTS and an SRX both who hit the track.
