A.T.A.A Regional Action Set For Mississippi
The second big A.T.A.A. Regional go will have the Gulf Coast Drag Strip at Biloxi, Mississippi as hosts on February 22nd and 23rd.
The 3400 foot strip operated by the Gulf Coast Timing Association was just completed last September and the crews in the area haven't had time to build up too high a track record, but that is expected to change at the Regional. It is now held by Joe Gagliano's "B" Open Gas Machine at 112 m.p.h. Joe, who hails from New Orleans, also held the strip E.T. record for a short time at 12.8 secs., until another New Orleans boy, Albert Waits dropped it down to 11.99 secs with his gas bike on January 5th.
For additional information on the meet contact Gulf Coast Drag Strip, 208 Kensington Drive, Biloxi, Mississippi.
