BARONA 2014 RENEGADE GAMBLER SERIES #1 The Chevrolet Vega is a subcompact
automobile that was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors
(GM) from 1970 to 1977. The car's name came from a bright star in the
northern skies.Available in two-door hatchback, notchback, wagon, and
panel delivery body styles, all models were powered by an inline
four-cylinder engine with a lightweight, aluminum alloy cylinder block. The
Vega competed directly with its domestic rivals from Ford and AMC and
imports from Toyota and Datsun as well as the aging VW Beetle. The Vega
received praise and awards at its introduction, including 1971 Motor Trend
Car of the Year. Subsequently the car became widely known for early
model problems concerning its engineering, reliability, safety,
propensity to rust, and engine durability. The one-millionth Vega was
produced in May, 1973 The Vega was among the top 10 best-selling
American cars in 1974. The Cosworth Vega, a short-lived
limited-production performance model was introduced in March 1975.
Despite annual improvements,further development with design
upgradesand efforts to improve the car's image,Chevrolet cancelled
the Vega and its aluminum engine at the end of the 1977 model run.1972

and driveline to reduce vibration and noise; also revised shock absorbers.

Satruday action at barona drag strip motorcycle drag racing.
Drag racing and/or sprints is a racing venue where two participants line
up at a dragstrip with a signaled starting line. Upon the starting signal,
the riders accelerate down a straight, quarter-mile long paved track where
their elapsed time and terminal speed are recorded. The rider to reach the
finish line first is the winner. This can occur upon purpose built venues
(e.g., Santa Pod), temporary venues (e.g., runways or drives of country
houses). In addition to "regular" motorcycles, top fuel motorcycles also
compete in this category.

1972 Chevrolet Vega Drag Racing Racelegal.com 3-21-2014
RaceLegal, the safer and sanctioned track alternative to illegal street
racing, was developed with one goal in mind. Saving the needless loss of
young lives to an illegal street race gone bad is RaceLegal's mantra. To
that end we have been remarkably effective. The concept was one of
providing a youth oriented environment in a neutral and centrally located
location where we could replicate a street environment, but with safer and
sanctioned conditions that insured the safety of our racers and their fans.
The under pinning is one of skillfully redirecting illegal street racing
behavior to the safer and sanctioned sport of drag racing in a youth
oriented setting. As sated above, the results are impressive.

NHRA Jr Dragster and Hayabusa Dragster Barona Drag Strip 12-1-2012
NHRA jr dragster at barona drag strip The Junior Dragster is a scaled
version of the top fuel dragster. Also known as the Jr dragster, it reaches
speeds of up to 85 mph. The cars were created in New Zealand and first
raced there in 1988. There is a league called the JDRL (Junior Drag Racing
League). The JDRL is a division of the NHRA, which consists of two
different dragster classes, traditional Jr. Dragster having a wheelbase
between 90-150 inches and the larger Jr. Comp dragster being 150-190
inches. Junior drag racers may choose to participate in programs run by the
NHRA, IHRA, or at an unsanctioned facility. Drivers may be male or female
and must be at least eight years of age, and be no older than 20 years on
December 31 of the competition year (a driver who turns 18 on January 2 is
permitted to race in the class until December 31 of the year in question).
Dragsters also compete in a different class of racing. This different class
is called Outlaw. This class is run to the 330 ft cone of the racing
surface. The class runs heads-up on a 4-tenths pro tree. Usually this class
is a qualified field, so the teams have to give it all they can just to
make the field. While different series rules vary, the main principle is
the same. The different series restrict engine combinations and weight
packages so that the cars do not exceed the 4.10 time NHRA says is the
fastest junior dragsters can run to the 330 ft. legally.

motorcycle made by Suzuki since 1999. It immediately won acclaim as the
world's fastest production motorcycle, with a top speed of 188 to 194 miles
per hour (303 to 312 km/h).
Hayabusa (隼?) is Japanese for "peregrine falcon", a bird that often
