Southern Super Heavy Shootout 5

I thought it would be a good idea to let the Marauder folks know that the Georgia Area Super Sport Impala Team (GASSIT) has decided to put on the Super Heavy Shootout one more time. The tentative date is November 5, 2005 at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, GA. This will most probably be the last one of these hosted by GASSIT, so mark your calendars.

Over the last 2 years, there has been an increasing presence by the Marauder folks at the shootouts. We'd love to see this trend increase for 2005. The welcome mats will be down for you again, so come experience some good ole southern hospitality and great drag racing. I will update this thread with new information as it becomes available.

Terry

Terry,
Does GASSIT have a website ? It would be nice if we could contact some of the SSHS# organizers to maybe make some offers of help, either in time or money, and maybe even a partnership to keep the event going well past SSHS5. I'm sure some of us Southern Marauders could help out in some way.

Yes they do have a website: GASSIT website (That's my car at Lanier )

However, the GASSIT members' primary form of communication is via their GASSIT Yahoo group, which can be found here:
GASSIT Yahoo site

I will post your generous offer on the Yahoo site and link this thread. I'm sure they will be grateful of your offer to help. I'm an out-of-state member of GASSIT at 200 miles away. They are a great bunch of car nuts and it's worth the drive.

It's gratifying to see the early excitement here about SSHS5. If you've been to one or more of the previous 4 events, you know how great a time will be had. If you haven't been, you don't know what you've been missing.

We should see about getting a gang of us together and go up to Georgia. Maybe promote it to our group in Florida as well as other southeastern Marauders. Get a group rate at a local hotel etc. Would be fun.. TOM

I know for sure that there will be a group of Floridian Impalas making the trip north for SSHS5. If you could all hook up, wouldn't that be an impressive convoy? Here comes the FBI!

Maybe I will go with you Paul. Just think, two silver MM's heading south. I forgot, maybe three. I am sure FIVE-O will want to go too.

I've been to the last 2 and really appreciated the way the SS guys welcomed the MM guys...the big boys against the world...MMs did good in the brackets...especially for the number that was there...but so far the SSs rule big dog...10 second cars...some Lincs have ran real good (9 seconds) in the past but blow before getting through the field...looking forward to it again this year...OBTW if wife or girlfriend coming they have plenty to do, like my wife goes shopping for christmas at the huge outlet center that is within a mile of the track...willie...be good to see you again Smokie!

A blown silver Marauder won his bracket last year. I believe that his name was Mark Hlady, or something similar to that. I think he won the "long distance" award too. What a beautiful machine!

It really is the "big boys against the world", isn't it? The SS and MM folks are truly birds of a feather. We feel that Mauraders are our "partners in crime" They showed up in pretty good force last year. A great group of guys (and gals) looking for what we look for... big fat honkin fast cars, and good fun. I'd love to see more make the show this year - the more the merrier.

And BTW - we're also trying to drum up some interest with the 300C/Magnum folks. Anybody hungry for some hemis?

Have you found a forum such as this one for the Daimler/Chrysler hemi crowd? I'm still looking for one.
