On November 12-13, 2016, over 280 cars gathered to race at the Sulphur Springs Municipal Airport in Sulphur Springs, TX for wannaGOFAST’s anticipated event. Low elevation and cool temps provided a backdrop for high-speed runs and world record attempts. This year was no exception, as Krazy House Customs’ and Billy Ray Motorsports LLC’s Cadillac CTS-V hit 185.18 mph to break a CTS-V world record. Additionally, Mowen of Vengeance Racing set the U.S. half-mile record in their C6 Corvette Z06 with a speed of 205.29. This event was a huge success with smiles and high-speed fun abound.
Now, wannaGOFAST is proud to announce the Florida ½ Mile Shootout will be returning TWICE in 2017, both on January 21-22 and on October 28-29. This event is always held at the gigantic Jumbolair Airport in Ocala, FL. The runway is over 7500 ft long and provides a backdrop for racers to push their vehicles to incredibly high speeds. The track record is currently 233.88 MPH set by Underground Racing in a Twin Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo and they are looking forward to seeing that speed be replaced with something much faster in 2017. Last year almost 5,000 people were in attendance, making this their biggest event of 2016. Racing for the January event sold out in only 55 minutes. However, spectator tickets can be purchased at www.wannagofast.com and are unlimited!
Registration for the October 28-29 event will open on July 28th at 8am Eastern Time at www.wannagofast.com.
