Default Hammond/Springfield LA area

I'm currently looking for any racers in the south Louisiana area that are looking to find some places to run. I know there is a large group of on road Drag racers in the New Orleans area, another large group of off road racers from the Lafayette, Destrahan, Denham Springs, and Watson areas. Then we have the sled pullers and off road racers from The Hammond/ Loranga /Springfield areas. I'm hoping to get some more guys on this forum together so we can talk and get some organizing going on for some of the races. Hopefully we can even get this thread to be the Louisiana racers and not the Shreveport/Bossier city Thread. I think That should be a sub thread along with this one. Due to the fact that there is a five hour plus drive between the two areas of the state and two distinct different driveing types going on. Not to cut down on road racing. It's just that that area of racing isn't doing much in the southern part of the state that I know of and I know there is another group up in the Shreveport area racers that do the offroad Buggy and Truggy racing..
