I would really like to come to the Shootout and run my 59 F100. Obviously, it’s just a street driven vehicle. I’m planning on driving it out since I’m about 175 miles away.

My question to all of the veteran racers is what safety equipment do I need and is there anything my truck would need to have in order for me to make a pass down the track? I don’t want to get there and find out I can’t do it for some reason.

Thanks. Soffian

If stock, you need only seatbelts as far as safety.  You'l also need a coolant catch can and, I think double throttle return springs.
Is it stock and if not, do you have any idea how quick it is?

Thanks Charlie,

I do have lap belts installed and double springs. I will have to get a catch can. The truck is lowered but still has a straight front axle and drum brakes all around. The motor is a slightly built 292 (about 296) but not stock—Isky E4 cam, Edelbrock 553, and a T5. I have no idea how fast it is, which is partly why I’d like to run it.

Would I need a helmet?

Hey Chuck!

Yes, I am planning on being at this year’s Shootout. I’ll be there Friday afternoon and Saturday for sure. I haven’t yet decided if I’ll stay until Sunday. I’ve made my reservation at the Best Western. It will be great to see you!

For anyone participating or spectating in the Y Block Shootout you can consult the facility map below to find the Y Block powered pit area. Bob Martin did send out  some great information in the Y Block Magazine but this information below was not available when the issue was published. (Coordinating with all parties has been very difficult for me but very productive!) I even made a personal visit to Dragway 42 one week ago to get a tour of the track. Ron and Mary Anne Matcham, owners since late 2013, were very helpful. I know that Bob had planned to call Mary Anne this week because we were told that a section would be set aside for us and Bob wanted to run those details by Mary Anne. While Bob is always our go-to guy with this annual event, I have tried to make myself available where I can. I know nothing about drag racing but I enjoy Y blocks and fast Fords. Cool

Hopefully I can learn some things next weekend to prepare for 2022. BigGrin
