Spring Bluegrass & BBQ May 7th KY

I did a search of the list and see that there are nearly 50 somewhat active members of the forum from Kentucky. That was way more than I expected. I wanted to reach out to you and others from surrounding states and see if there is enough interest to do a weekend get away event here in KY?

I am calling it "Bluegrass and BBQ".

Location: Morehead, KY (One hour east of Lexington and one hour west of Ashland on I-64). Home of some of the best Bluegrass backroads in the state.

Venu: Pop's Southern BBQ
Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm
Date: May 7th (tentative)

Plan: Meet up for lunch on some of the best smoked BBQ in the state. Located 3mi south of Farmers/Sharkey exit of I-64 at the crossroads of Rt801 and US Rt 60. About 5 mi West of downtown Morehead on Rt 60.

After lunch for those interested, there is a charity arm drop dragrace to be held that afternoon in town. There will be a parade thru town of all the hot rods led by the county Sheriff. Open to all street legal mechanically sound cars and trucks. All proceeds going to benefit the Shriners Childrens Hospital (a worthy cause). For a $50/donation you can drag race against the Sheriff's Hemi Charger in your car. There will be a couple of celebrity racers from the famous TV show "Street Outlaws" coming to sign autographs and run their cars. It may be enough to make Daisy Duke blush. A map of some of the best backroads will be available for those not into the dragrace thing.

This thread is to see if we have enough interest to put this together? Talk it over and let me know.

Bluegrass and BBQ

OK, as they say where two or more are gathered....

Pops is closed for the winter season but will be reopening in March. I will check with the owner and confirm our plans to invade his establishment with a horde of hungry Benz owners, . Mabe I can con him into cooking up something special that weekend.

I will post more details later.

Gravity Falls Armdrop Event Info

Here is a flyer with some of the Gravity Falls Armdrop Event info. More to follow later. My old C32 would run mid 8's at this 1/8 mile track. I am expecting the SLK55 to do at least one tick mobetta. Maybe 8.46 ET? Weather for this event is usually glorious. Highs in the low 70's and sunny.

Also, Pop's Southern BBQ has announced that they will reopen for the season on March 15th weather permitting (last year we had 18" of snow on opening day, ). I will plunder the menu once they are open. Their parking lot has been the site of numerous cars shows and the paved portion can handle upwards of 30 cars +. The overflow lot is gravel and can handle over 100, so arrive early to get a good spot.

Pops Southern BBQ

Pops Southern BBQ is now once more open for business. I stopped there this weekend with some of my family for lunch and to visit with the owner. The BBQ is even better than last year (if that is possible). Looking forward to warmer weather now. Too bad that AMG does not make motorcycles...

Armdrop event

The charity arm drop event is still on for May 7th but I am going to make some alterations to the plans as the event actually begins at 10am that morning with a car show and then a hot rod parade to the drag strip where the arm drop event will be run. Since I am on the planning team, I will need to cancel lunch at Pop's. Anybody wishing to go to Pop's after the drags may do so. The parade goes right past it.
