Default Trying to get into racing

Hi to you all. I'm a 42 yr old who visits the track regular, since I was 16. After doing 4 years in the serice and starting a family, its time! I would love to get a father/son thing going. Son is 8 and I want to get him into the jr drag side of things. Having 2 dragsters looking similar and racing together is my goal. Any thoughts and pointers would be appreciated. Is there any schools for adults and kids? I'm from SE Pennsylvania. Faily close to Cecil Co Drag, Atco Nj, and Maple Grove PA. Thank you! Tracy

First of all, thanks for your service and welcome home, Soldier(Salute).
Have you any drag racing experience?

Don't take Roy's class unless you don't mind getting yelled at.
