there are too many cars... you only have enough time to get one or two runs in all day.. I used to show my car there, but there arent too many cars showing anymore.

Both me and my husband go at least once a year. He races mostly in super mod. I plan on at least doing one in super mod with my car before the season is over. We've won in our class a handful of times in the past.

I got to GLD on some wednesday's and bring my gf since girls are free on wednesdays and its only $25 and not too crowded. I would go down the track 8 times a day easily waiting maybe once for junior drags.

Yes if you go to Great lakes dragway. However, the question was about Import Wars which is once a month. For a few months a year.
