Post q/8 mile racing, $15 bucks as many runs as you want!!!

That should say 1/8 mile racing. Trying to get some members to show up, I'm one of two Ford guys that showed up last time. Any Questions?? Ask here or Email me at

The Outlaws will be holding another POWER CRUZ @ Friendship Park Raceway (near Steubenville, Ohio) SUNDAY Sept. 30th

Gates open @ 10:am Racing @ 11:00
Gamblers Race @ 4:30
$15.00 to race Spectators $3.00

Regular car cruises are a dime a dozen, but......... there is only one
POWER CRUZ and it was the Aliquippa Outlaws Car Club that brought it all to life. Accept NO SUBSTITUTE! If it says Power Cruz & it's "NOT" the Aliquippa Outlaws ........ It's just another "wanna-be"

You are allowed to get in as many runs as you can. There are 6 staging lanes, so we can set up "grudge runs".

Gates open at 10:am
Street Racing starts at 11:00 am and runs till 4:30 pm
Gamblers Shootout starts at 4:30 (the winner takes 1/2 the pot)

We want everyone who loves drag racing to get in the car and join us. We NEED as many racers as we can get.

What is a POWER CRUZ?
A "Power Cruz" is a car cruise for those of us who enjoy the performance side of the "muscle cars" & street rods. We all enjoy going to a cruise and appreciate the time and effort that all cruzers have put into their cars. Appearance is just one side of the coin, there's also the time, money and patience it takes to make them run the way we want. Back in the 60's, for the dinosaurs, (not me of course) running on the street was a way of life. Things were a little simpler then. Sure, we (oops that slipped) got a few tickets and had our share of high speed chases, but the bottom line is we did it and never got it out of our blood. With the strict laws today, it's just not as easy and I hate to use the word, but we're getting too "old" to get caught racing on the streets. You still have the young and old alike building "hot" cars, but most of them would not be allowed to race on a sanctioned drag strip due to the NHRA / IHRA regulations. Hence the birth of the "POWER CRUZ". With a lot of hard work and an equal amount of persuasion, the Aliquippa Outlaws, headed by Bobby Williams, were able to convince the City of Aliquippa to let us hold 1/8th mile drag races inside the old LTV site. A new street had recently been paved and was perfect for our use. In order to get permission we had to obtain drag racing insurance and liability insurance on the surrounding buildings & businesses. The insurance company required jersey barriers and guard rails along both sides of the strip. Needless to say, you know where we spent our weekends. Digging in excess of 700 holes can wear a man down. Our members jumped in and worked their butts off to make the whole thing possible and I know that all who got to race appreciated their effort. Stick with us we're far from done.
ALIQUIPPA SAYS NO TO POWER CRUZ's. Due to construction and the near sightedness of a few city officials we've been forced to take our show on the road. The sight selected is Friendship Park Raceway below Steubenville (58 minutes from Aliquippa) They have agreed to let us rent the track an maintain our minimal tech requirments, so everyone can race. Stay with us and bring everyone you can. The more the better!

I read all those rules and they are pretty fair. We have a test and tune every thursday night and as long as you have a seat belt, helmt, good tires and no leaks you can run. I wish we had more tech but it just doesnt seem that will ever happen. Our test and tune only cost ten bucks and you get as many runs as you can.
