The first race ever for the Out of Time No Prep Series, brought to you by the one and only REAPER (James Goad) went down successfully in the record books this weekend at the Emerald Coast Dragway. Less than desirable weather conditions Friday evening ended up in a rainout with no cars going down the track for the side by side grudge portion of the show, so Saturday’s events kicked off with what was supposed to happen Friday night with before the heads up racing action got under way. The racing was intense with an afternoon full of upset after upset and cars pulling back to the staging lanes lacking their front ends and racing on borrowed struts & wheels since the wall their pass prior took those parts from them. Autographs were signed, hot dogs were consumed, cars got banged up & winners got paid, all in all it was a very successful day of racing!
Congratulations to our winners & a huge thank you goes out to not only those who made the haul to race with us but our fans and most importantly James for affording us the opportunity to kick off his new series with him.
Join us next weekend for more heads up racing action, this time on a WELL PREPPED racing surface with a whole different set of FAST cars joining us for the season opener of the South Coast Heads Up Series. We’ll have A LOT of cars on property racing for guaranteed purses and series points as well as a decent amount of cars headed our way for testing on the small tire / radial prepped racing surface… see flyer below for more info!
Join us this weekend with Reaper’s first race of the first season of his new series “OUT OF TIME NO PREP SERIES”! The big rigs are already rolling into town, testing is planned for both Wednesday & Thursday, Friday night is Boddie’s GRUDGE night and Saturday is Reaper’s big race day!

When a racer, race promoter & local business owner believes in something so much that they step up to the plate and support a heads up racing class to ensure it’s success, it means the world to not only the other racers in the class but the racing venue and points series. Adam Pettis with Innovative Street Technologies did just that with their support of the True Street N/T class at Emerald Coast Dragway this year!
True Street N/T was introduced mid season last year at ECD with the South Coast Heads Up Series on a prepped surface and ran all of 2019 with the Tri-County Grudgefest on a no-prep surface. For 2019 it’s included in the points series with SCHU as well as ran at all of the TCGF No-Prep races, long story short it’s a good year to have a true street car! SCHU TS N/T rules & info can be found HERE.

570 Real Street competitors, join us February 9th at ECD with the South Coast Heads Up N/T series for a winter shakedown race!! $100 entry car & driver, 100% tech card payback and ECD to kick in $500 cash to sweeten up the pot! This race will NOT count towards season points with the 570RS Racing Association, however all drivers are encouraged and welcome to join us to shake the winter off and get things fired up for the 2019 points season.
Why doesn’t it count as a 570RS Association points race? At the time the South Coast flyer was made the meeting with the Real Street Racing Association had not happened yet so some details were to be determined. At the meeting it was discussed that 570RS would be ran in conjunction with the Pro Mod schedule at ECD for 2019 (May4th, July 6th & October 12th) instead of with the South Coast Heads Up N/T dates. This was done in an effort to let many 570RS cars the opportunity to race other eligible classes on N/T nights (like true street for example) instead of having them try to dual class on the same race night. Also a few competitors have both a 570RS eligible car and a faster heads up type car that they aren’t able to bring to the track and operate at the same time. ECD was of course happy to oblige and we look forward to racing with the 570RS Association in 2019!
