Southern Super Heavy Shootout #7 is ON!

Well folks, it is a done deal. SSHS7 is on like Donkey Kong! The website is up and registration is open. Race Day is Saturday November 3rd, 2007. The Marauder family has been a crucial part of the success of this event for the last several years and we are counting on your participation for SSHS7 to succeed as well. The welcome mats will be down and southern hospitality will be in abundance. Please plan to attend this stellar "Big Car" drag racing event. Register early!

SSHS7 Homepage

Note that a host hotel arrangement has not yet been finalized. As soon as it is done, we will annouce the details.

Also, I apologize in advance that the current version of the home page is so "B-body" flavored. This was originally a B-body event and it is hard to break old habits. But the Marauders have been as much a part of this event for that last few years as the Impalas have been and it is as much your race as ours. This truly is a "Big Car Race" and not an "Impala Race". I have requested that the appropriate updates be made to the site to reflect that, so we're working on it. This site just went live yesterday and we are still tweaking it, so please be patient with us.

I sure hope to see my Marauder friends there again this year!

200 limit?

I see you are limited to 200 cars. How many did you have in previous years?

I think that we had 130 cars last year. That is about normal for these events. But with more Marauders and more LX cars hitting the drag strip every year, we thought it was prudent to cap it at something reasonable. We may not have that many cars, but it's a good incentive to register early.

John - Will do. Just a heads up. If you read the Note from the Prez, you will see that this is the last time for a while that GASSIT will sponsor and organize the SSHS event. I believe they really mean it this time. They are tired and need a break and are hoping that someone else pics up the ball for 2008. If nobody else does run with it, the event will die. If any of the Marauder folks want to discuss taking the torch, please contact Norm Campli directly. His e-mail is on there.

He is also the guy to contact with any sponsorship opportunities for the event. Thanks!

Count Me In

Terry, I was registered last year, but because of some last minute engine problems I couldn't make it. Count me in this year! I'll be there. Plus I'll work on an S/C Florida Marauder Race Team contingent to be there as well. I would really like another trophy to go with my SSHS5 one in the garage.

Well, I suppose I'll have to go, again. This is my favorite event.

That's the spirit! At this rate the Marauders will outnumber the Impalas this year. Really - thank you for supporting this event so strongly.

Thumbs up Registered

Terry:

Registered with #3. Well, we never found each other last year to go heads up. There is too much going on Saturday, so I propose that we meet on Friday night when it should not be very busy and we can easily run. It is a shame we never ran together because it would have been a very close race. We both pulled 12.38s at SSHS6 (see time slip on MM "Timeslip" page - and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0WDXSfrKdY). My guess is you will have to beat me off the line because based on our E/S I will run you down at the end. So again I throw the MM "gauntlet down". We are very evenly matched - best out of three for Pinks??

We had a ball last year and will be there again this year. Better luck to Jerry, Marty and Paul. Tom a convoy sounds like just the ticket. To anyone who has not been there this event is a blast even if just to watch and visit with all kinds of car guys. You will not believe what the SS guys have done to their rides. John Kuhn has the prettiest Mercury you have ever seen and he is as nice as his ride is gorgeous. Watch that baby run. The Grand Monkey with the Marauder Heart. Dennis

Smile Have to give this some thought

Coming off of MV V in August, if I don't break the bank then maybe Patricia and I can do the SSH Shootout #7. It's only 605 miles from Shreveport, La.

Have to lite a fire under Laughing Gasser and see if his car is ready.

I'll query some of the North Texas Marauders, there may be an interested contender or spectator.
