Hey everyone! My name is Matthew and I am in the area for a few months. I drive a 2002 Camaro SS.

Are all of the area's drag strips closed? I was looking online and it appears that San Angelo and Abilene are both closed.

Do you guys ever have meets in the San Angelo area?

I would love to do a cruise down here in a month or so.

Also, I was thinking about going to Midland Drag Strip this weekend. They are having Test and Tune on Saturday from 3-11pm.

It does alright for what it is. I was hoping to take advantage to the cool air this weekend, but it rained on Saturday. I am going to try to get the front suspension lined up and head over to Midland.
