Has anyone heard of any plans for a 2024 shootout?

Bob Martin is working on the Y-Block Shoot Out taking place at Edgewater (Ohio) on the July 12-13-14, 2024 Weekend.  This is not set in stone yet.  As currently scheduled, Friday will be Test & Tune, Saturday is Brackets and Stick Shifts, and Sunday is Muscle Car Fun Day.  Bob will let us know which day or days the actual Y Shootout will take place assuming the Y’s can be worked into the schedule.

Edgewater Race Way Park has a nice Y-Block flyer on their web site promoting the Y-Block shoot  July 12,13,14 . 2024 It looks like there will be a lot racing for every one beyond the shoot out. I hope there is a good turn out of Y-Blockers. Some times people will say OH; I remember them.  Harry Hutten Jr. {Recovering}

I for one, do plan on making the Y Shootout at Edgewater, Ohio.  As a FYI, I will be staying at the Super Eight in Harrison.

Update From Bob:

Edgewater Gate Openings, Entries, Payouts

As Promised, now less than 2-weeks to the 28thY-Block Nationals & Shootouts at Edgewater, Fri-Sat-Sun, July 12-13-14,here’s the current Track Opening Times; Race Permit/Entry Fees; Payouts; andadditional information.  I’m sending thisin e-mail and as an attachment (one might be larger print than the other), plusattachments of the original e-mail overview, plus maps to the track and motelsfrom that same original e-mail.  I’msending this to those that I know are coming, those that are tentative, andthose I have not yet heard replies from or about those from other sources.

Track Website address:     edgewaterrace.com   (there’s two ‘r’s there).  There you will find all the currentinformation, including the rules.  Theone of importance is for the few of us Y-Blocks that can run 9.99 or quickerthat must have an NHRA License, and either an engine diaper or protectivedevice like what Ted Eaton has.  They arealso on Facebook for those that go there.

Track Address:  4918East Miami River Road, Cleves, OH. Besides my maps, you can go to GoogleMaps for directions

Track Phone Number:    513-353-4666

Track Radio Station:  87.9 FM    We need to stationsomeone listening to the radio, as we have occasionally missed the call to thelanes and go up late.  Where we get intotrouble is that happening, and Y-Blocks end up in groups at the end of the lineand running Y-Blocks instead of other racers. If we pit in more than one location, the problem is amplified.  Bring a portable radio and listen to it ifyou don’t listen to the announcer.

Thursday, July 11th:  NOTE, this is the ‘Midwest Drags – EdgewaterStop’ event.  It is put on by twoKentucky tracks (Kentucky Dragway & Beech Bend), and therefore, I believe(without checking), that it would present a difficult answer at the gate to bethere just to drop your trailer.  Thegate will obviously manned by additional Kentucky Track members who have noknowledge of us – or what’s happening the rest of the weekend.  For this reason, I’m not presenting openingtimes or admissions.

Friday, July 12th,Tune & Test: 

Summer Hours, the Track Gatesopen at 5 PM.  Track is Hot 5:30-10:30.  NOTE – in 2018 & 2019, racers, especiallyY-Blocks got there early, and when the area between the gates and E.Miami RiverRoad fills up, they have to open the gates to keep the cars off the road.  Think about it.

Track Permits $35, Crew/Spectators $15, Kids 10 & under in free.  I suspect that since Saturday is the Track’s6th Bracket Points Event, that there might be a bunch of otherracers there to do some T&T and drop their Trailers, rather than just a FridayT&T bunch.  The gates will open early….

Some of us Y-Blocks will pit by the return road fence aboutthe 1/8-mile.  Others might go to theshade of the trees.  Hence, pitting inmore than one location.  Repeat, bring aportable radio, especially if you don’t listen to the announcer.

Note:  When you gothru Tech, when passed, you will get a sticker placed on your windshield.  LEAVE IT THERE.  That way, you won’t have to go thru Techagain during the weekend.  This is whatwas done in 2018 & 2019.  I’ll talkto Event Director.  If this has changed,I’ll let you know.  Also ask Tech aboutit!!!

 

Saturday, July 13th,Bracket Points Race #6. 

The Track Gates openat 1 PM.  Time runs at 2:30, Eliminationsfollowing.  Edgewater doesn’t have acurfew when high car counts run late.

When you get to the Track Gate, Specify the Bracket youintend to race in from below.  Most of uswill run in Sportsman.  You can also sayyou are running with the Y-Blocks.  Wemight have our own Time Runs in addition to our own Y-Block Shootout.

Note the Run Order:   Pro,    Super Pro,    Bike,    Sportsman,    & Juniors. 

We’ll have to see, based on car counts, where they put the Y-Block in the Run Order.  We have to pay attention to that too in orderto get to the lanes, not only for our Shootout, but especially for the Bracketwe are also running in, so we know when we have to get back quickly to run theother.  We have history, not only fromEdgewater, but also at other tracks, where we are on the track when the callfor the next round is made and we miss the call and miss the round, and areeliminated from that Bracket, and even from our Y-Block Shootout.  It’s happened….. NOTE ALSO, the run ordermight be determined the day of the race, based on car counts in all theBrackets (and Y-Block car count).

With regard to all of the above, I’ve been told by racersthat have gone to Edgewater at various times that you might pay a fee at thegate to get into the track (probably the Crew/Spectator fee of $15), then, atTech, once you have decided on which Bracket/Class you enter, the remainder ofthat Bracket/Class Race Permit.  We’llhave to cover that at the track.  ‘Itshould all come out in the wash’

On Sunday, they serve Breakfast ‘At the Patio’ (where theyserved food by Tech), and they have opened the building by the 1/8-mile on theSpectator Side for ‘First Round something or other’ (a better word or phrasefor losers).

Note that I currently have about $850 in the prize Fund todate, and will work on our Prize monies at the track.

I’ll be in touch,
