UPDATE: Find an interactive map at GrassrootsMotorsports.com/AssistList

With the assistance call outs from 2013 and 2014 Drag Week, and the fact that many of us are adventurous and cover a lot of territory I am thinking a pool of locations to help each other out would be an asset.

That in mind I suggest we post up our name, city, facility (ie, home garage, amateur shop, pro shop), trailer, tow vehicle.

I have a good sized shop in Scott, Ohio 45886, with a lot of equipment. I have a trailer and tow vehicle, lift, welder and more

How to find your GPS co-ordinates

No worries; it's pretty simple

  1. Go to google maps (http://maps.google.com)
  2. Drop a pin on your house (right click on top of your house, or nearby if you'd rather not be exact)
  3. Click "what's here" and post the coordinates that pop up in the little box in the upper left corner in this thread

Anyone computer savvy? Somehow you can make a map on google maps that is saved and drop pins where everyone is located. Either I can't figure it out or the internet explorer version 3 I have at work makes it not function

46052, but a closer zip would be 46075 or 46077. Actually you could triangulate 46052, 46077 and 46112 and be closer.

I'm in Coralville, IA where I-80 intersects I-380/US-218 (essentially 2 hrs east of Des Moines). I have tools only (cordless impact being the fanciest); my garage won't fit most cars. That, plus a ride, plus a night to crash might be enough in a pinch for most of y'all though!

Just off topic so I'm not derailing the thread but this feels like a magazine article in the making. Buy a beater and drive from member house to member house each person fixing or "improving" one thing with whatever they have on hand. At the end of the trip race the car in whatever is most local.
