Some of us have waited our whole lives for something like this… Shift-S3ctor brings you our first Airstrip Attack event!

Where: Trona Airport. 14902 Airport Rd Trona, CA 93562
When: Saturday, February 25th, 2012. 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
What: A 1/2 mile of acceleration in a rolling side by side competition.


We decided it was best for not only vehicle performance, but also for safety concerns to host the event at Trona Airport. Trona Airport is at an elevation of 1700 ft. which is significantly lower than our original venue and should allow cars to run a little better. We now have a longer runway as well (just over a mile) which allows for even more braking room for our 1/2 mile of acceleration. This runway is also at a 1.8% downgrade whereas our original location was slightly uphill.

This should place no inconvenience since this new location is only about 20 minutes away from the original. The nearest hotels are still in the Ridgecrest area.

Lastly, come to the event with a FULL TANK OF GAS. Unfortunately, there is not a convenient gas station by our new location, so be sure to plan your fill ups before you arrive.

Who may participate?
From stock cars to highly modified vehicles, all are welcome. Convertibles are required to have a roll bar. ALL participants are required to bring and wear helmets. Tech Inspection will be heavily enforced. You may also bring your own race gas. Keep it off the streets and do it legally in a safe environment! Professional video and photography will be on hand.

This first Airstrip Attack event is expected to bring various types of cars together to do some high speed, side by side racing on a private airstrip. You will be able to start from a roll, 25 mph to 50 mph, and accelerate for 1/2 mile, against your friend or enemy. It will be a War of the Worlds, as we expect a variety of American Muscle, JDM and European machines to show up and do battle. A winner will be announced at the end of the day.

Awards will be given for:
Fastest car of the day.
Fastest tuner of the day.

Early registration is $225 and we will limit registrations so sign up today!
