Thanks for the reply.We wanted to make it last year but schedules and fuel prices would not allow it.I will fill the reserve tank early to eliminate one of those problems this year.

The last 2 years we've had some really good air at the BBF Bash in KY. However last years heat offset the good air but they still ran pretty good.

Usually the Barometric Pressure around here is in the 30.00 to 30.20 range

Hope to see you at the Bash

The track is 350 - 400 feet depending on temp and pressure.

MANY of the racers participating -- MUCH HIGHER

Any day drag racing is a GOOD day.

I thought the elevation would have been higher but that is about the same as some of the places we run at around here (north east texas).The humidity here is allways very high though.I am looking forward to coming and playing with other big block ford nuts.I might have to bring a couple of small blocks with me too if i can get them to make the trip.

Bruno,

Damn you track must be close to sea level.The only two tracks i raced my Mustang at here in Ohio one is 1,100 ft. elevation and the other is 1,300 ft. i think.

Later Mark.

High High?

Owensboro airport elevation is 407'. As most have mentioned, the track should be very close to that. If I remember, my altimeter indicates 447" at the track, with corrected barometric pressure.

As Damon mentioned, the Inaugural BBF Bash's weather was the best. The Inaugural event was held early in the year when our local weather, generally is very good!
