Maxton Mile (East Coast Timing Association)

Any speed/racing fans out there?

Just want to know if there might be interest in attending an East Coast Timing Association event in Maxton, NC.

Welcome to ECTA

ECTA holds several events every year similar to what you'd experience at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The 2010 events were/are:

April 10-11
May 22-23
June 26-27
September 25-26
October 30-31

ECTA permits camping but it's boondocking so the April, May, September and October events might be acceptable. June is likely too hot. I'm leaning toward April or October.

Maxton, NC is southeast of Charlotte Map of Maxton, North Carolina by MapQuest

Youtube Videos

I searched Youtube for Maxton Mile and found lots of videos. Here are a couple I thought were interesting.

YouTube - Land Speed Racing & Maxton Mile - 200MPH +

YouTube - SVS TTRS Fastest Viper In Standing Mile @ 231.666mph 2007

YouTube - The Maxton mile June 2007

This looks like fun. Maybe in a few years.

I think Brad could take that Viper... while towing even.

I know some folks who'd gladly ride along.

Shameless Bump

Okay.... I'm throwing this out again to see if there's any interest. Come on... there's gotta be some speed freaks out there somewhere! Boondocking at Maxton in October.

How About 2011?

The dates for 2011 events at the Maxton Mile are:
  • April 2-3
  • May 14-15
  • June 25-26
  • September 24-25
  • October 29-30
We're interested in April, May, September or October. June is out as far as I'm concerned as this is a boondocking location and the weather may be too hot for my liking.

I contacted the event coordinator and was informed Friday arrival is okay.
