Guys & Gals
Just wanted to get some info out there for those of you who are going to be attending the 5th Annual East Coast Subaru Shootout this year. Two big changes. First, it will be held at Numidia Dragway in central PA this year( www.numidiadragway.net
), not Beaversprings as in years past. Secondly, the actual Shootout will be held on a Sunday. Here is some of the basic info but keep in mind, little details are still being ironed out so info will be updated as needed.
What: The East Coast Subaru Shootout. The country's largest All-Subaru drag racing event.
Where: Numidia Dragway in Numidia, PA
When: Sunday September 17th from 10am-4pm
Who: Anyone who enjoys drag racing and/or high-powered Subarus, but only Subaru's will be permitted to race.
How Much: $45(includes race fee and any spectators that come along with you). Spectators alone not coming with anyone racing will have a $7.00 entry fee.
WRX Stock Turbo 2.0- 2002 through 2005 WRXs. Anything goes but must have the stock unmodified turbo and no nitrous and a 2.0. The car must also retain AWD $200 1st place, $100 2nd place
2.5 Stock Turbo- All factory turbo Legacy GTs. Forester XTs and 2006+ WRXs. Anything goes but must have the stock unmodified turbo and no nitrous and a 2.5. The car must also retain AWD. $200 1st place, $100 2nd place
STi Stock Turbo- Same as above $200 1st place, $100 2nd place
Street Unlimited- Anything goes but must retain AWD. $600 1st place $200 2nd place
*Note* Motor swaps into a different chassis(such as an STi motor into a 93-01 Impreza), will be placed in Street Unlimited regardless of whether it uses the stock turbo.
The racing will most likely be a "Quick 8" format, no plans for bracket racing as of right now. The first few hours will be open time shots, anyone can run as many times as you want, then the eliminations will begin.
What else is going on?
Saturday afternoon/evening we will have a welcome reception at the brand new Quaker Steak and Lube Restaurant ( www.quakersteakandlube.com
) at the Buckhorn Plaza right outside of Bloomsburg, PA directly off Interstate 80(also only about 10 minutes from the track). There will be wings for everyone and plenty of other fantastic food and beverages to choose from.
Julie Stepan and the Easy Street Motorsports crew will be on hand with at least Julie's car and possibly Ali's as well.( www.esxmotorsports.com
The Subaru-sponsored ICY road racing team will also be in attendance with a few of their cars for their first drag racing event. (www.icyracing.com
Garrick Goh, Performance Parts Project Engineering Manager for SPT( Subaru Performance Tuning) will also be on hand to chat with all the Subaru owners, answer questions, and take in some hi-powered Subaru racing action.
There will also be a Subaru Only car show in the parking lot of Quaker Steak, where everyone there will get to vote on the best looking Subaru. Cost is free and winner will receive a trophy.

Also, and this is very important:
Due to the high number of emails we've been getting, we are asking anyone and everyone who is even planning on coming, to contact Tyane Sampson, the event cooridinator, ASAP so some kind of head count can be kept track of. Since we will be having food and having parts of the restaurant to ourselves, IT IS ABSOLUTELY VITAL TO LET HER KNOW YOU(AND HOW MANY GUESTS), WILL BE ATTENDING SO WE CAN SET UP PROPERLY. She will then send you a complete information packet including a pre-registration form(you do not have to pay at the time of sending this back), weekend itinerary, and other info.We hope to get a pre-registration form up on our website to make it easy for you guys, but for now, contact Tayne via email or phone and let her know you will be attending. It will take all of 1 minute out of your day
