End of season wrap up

Sorry about the lack of updates, it’s just so much easier to throw updates up on Facebook than logging into this site. After a rain shortened qualifying we didn’t make the show at Zmax for the fall race. It really came down to the way they ran the Alcohol qualifying, we just couldn’t make it for the second round of qualifying after having issues on the first pass. Oh well, we had fun, and we didn’t get it as bad as the fans did on Sunday.
On to the big news, on October 19th Bill was inducted into the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame. They had a great weekend of Car shows and meeting folks, and had the entire family on tap for the celebration.

NHRA is in our backyard this week.

Hope we see some fans this week out at ZMAX dragway. We’ll be fighting to squeeze into a field of heavy hitters. Stop by and say hello.

I would be remiss to mention that Bill and Kimberley have been helping get the next generation of Shooting Star racers out on the track over the last summer. Three of their grandkids have been hitting the track in Jr Dragsters. Bill is practically becoming the Don Schumacher of Salisbury, NC.

We haven’t fogotten about this page

Hi all, I know it’s been an awful long time since we did anything with this page. It’s just easier to do the updates on Facebook and let this one slide. I’ve uploaded some new pictures today and made a few changes here and there. I’ll try to keep it a little more up to date than a yearly post though. For far more recent information check us out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ShootingStarMotorsports
In the last year we have repainted the funny car body and had quite a few races and match races (including two second round appearances at the NHRA race at Zmax)
