Its at Numidia dragway (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=&daddr=10+Dragstrip+Road,+Numidia,+PA+17858+(Numidi a+Dragway)&hl=en&geocode=CSBIDN6IxF0FFfTsbwIdVj9y-yFkjCewJ4yshA&mra=mi&sll=40.890206,-76.398386&sspn=0.009522,0.026157&ie=UTF8&z=16). Anyone planning on going?

I have never been up there but heard some good things about the event. I think i will be heading up for the day since The Buck does not have the Powerfest Series event in July. That is if i can get my truck driving down the road in a safe manner[duhhh].

Here is NADM's (http://www.runnadm.com/events.php) website with a little more info and Numidia (http://www.numidiadragway.net/) website

I was there last year, its a pretty good event. I'll be there again this year and maybe get the truck back on the rollers. I'd love to meet up with anyone else who might show up.

I'm going. I heard nothing but good things from friends who have gone there; Besides, its the only event listed in Diesel Power's top 51 events of 2010 thats in Pennsylvania. I believe they were listed in the June issue...

Sounds good Josh, I will give you a call next week and see when and where we should meet.

The truck is sitting without a steering box in it but i should have the parts to finish tomorrow.

Hey Archer, if you want/need an extra set of hands with that steering box, give a yell... I should be around except for Saturday; I'm going to Chryslers at Carlisle that day.

almost got it back together but thanks for the offer. I got to go back to the hydraulic line shop and get the correct fitting brazed. I put the two broken off fittings next to each other then picked up the wrong one to take to get brazed [dummy][dummy].

07-13-2010, 12:16 AM
Looks like a couple of you from east of Reading are headed up together. Do you know what route you're taking or when you're leaving? Any chance I could meet up with the convoy on route 183 north west of Reading?

archer39
07-13-2010, 08:15 AM
From what i found it looks like it starts at 8. Is this correct?? If so, that is when i will plan on getting there. So that leaves me leaving my place around 6. anyone that has been there before and knows better let me know.

Here is the route (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Manatawny+St,+Pottstown,+Montgomery,+Pennsyl vania+19464&daddr=10+Dragstrip+Road,+Numidia,+PA+17858+(Numidi a+Dragway)&geocode=FcdSZgId6oh9-ymTlnCgU4bGiTGGlzrwIVz9sA%3BFfTsbwIdVj9y-yFkjCewJ4yshA&hl=en&mra=ls&sll=40.375321,-75.837936&sspn=0.291889,0.837021&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=9) google is taking me. Let me know where you want to meet up.

I've gone past the raceway dozens of times on the way to Sullivan County.... Rte 61 to Rte 54 to Rt 42; raceway is on the right. I have yet to see any place that lists a start time and/or gate fee. I guess I can call the track and see what they say. I'd guess a tad over 2 hours from Pottstown.

archer39
07-13-2010, 05:53 PM
Tickets are 10 dollars when purchased online don't know what they are at the gate. It says the gates open at 8 when you go to purchase tickets online. That's the only place I could find a time.

archer39
07-13-2010, 07:25 PM

Gates open at 8:00am
Drag Racing at 10:00 am
Sled Pulling at 1:00pm

Let me know where you want to meet up.

I don't know how meeting up will work out for me. Google has me going on 78 to 61 so the way it has me going is the best route for me. Might be better just for me to meet you there

I think tickets are $16 at the gate, but thats just what i heard from a buddy who i'm planning to meet there. Looks like online would be cheaper.

archer and rswoyer- looks like my route would intersect with yours when you get onto 183 outside of Reading, about 30 min from Pottstown. There is a Fisher's Rental Center on the left on 183, I could meet you there at 6:30.

cj5er- Looks like my route (along with others possibley) will intersect yours at 61 and 183 in Schuylkill Haven. If you turn onto 183, there is a Burger King I could meet you at shortly after 7:00.

Let me know if that works for anyone, if not, I guess I'll see you all there.

archer39
07-14-2010, 09:37 AM
Sounds good feveree.

We could also go up 61 and meet cj5er at the McDonalds right past Cabelas. I don't think it would take us any longer. Google says it is the same amount of time and randomly picks between the two when selecting the route.

cj5er
07-14-2010, 11:37 AM
Yea that sounds good. I'll see you there at 7. It will only take an hour to get to from my place

archer39
07-14-2010, 01:06 PM
Ralph, where will be a good place for me to meet you?

rswoyer
07-14-2010, 05:12 PM
I just found out I may have to work saturday morning; I'll let you know Zack, I may have to come up later. Otherwise we could meet up at the WAWA in Douglassville or something. How did you want to get to rt 61? From my place I usually go up through Oley on Rt 73 and come out on rt 61 at the Leesport Farmers Market, or just drive up 422; doesn't matter to me.

I found this thread with times(http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/pennsylvania/282203-nadm-east-coast-nationals-selling-extravaganza-2.html). Not sure if I'm working but I'm planning on shooting up there if I can.

It would work better for me to meet off 183 in Reading, then go up to Schulkill Haven. But if you guys take 61 and meet near Cabela's, than I can just meet you all at the Burger King in Schulkill Haven.

actually, it would work just the same if I meet you (archer and rswoyer) on 61 by the leesport farmer's market at 6:45, then meet cj5er at the mcd's past cabelas at 7:00. Just let me know which way you are planning to go

07-17-2010, 05:43 PM
Wahoo, i made it home from an event and did not break anything. I guess my bad luck rubbed off on Eric :( . I hope you guys made it home alright. If you need a hand or anything with the rear let me know. Thanks again for that spacer.Wish i could have stayed to watch the rest of the pull but I spent the the entire week out in the sun and heat and I just needed to get out of it.

Wyann, it was nice seeing you again.

07-17-2010, 09:04 PM
Good to hear you made it back in one piece. Don't worry, when it come to bad luck with rears I was already infected. I think the best part of the day was the ride home in a beautiful first gen with my truck in tow. I'll post some pics of it soon. I understand what you mean about the heat, it was a nasty one.

I think the trucks are backwards. Shouldn't the DRW be pulling the SRW? That is some carnage. Keith
