GenSport Carolinas was started last year with a primary goal of creating opportunities for owners to network socially and explore performance driving environments both competitive and simply for fun. GenSportCarolinas

The Tail of The Dragon is one of North America's most well-known motorcycle and sports car roads. This stretch of highway contains 318 turns in just over 11 miles with no cross-streets. Thousands of drivers come from all over North America and beyond to drive this road every year. The road is covered with professional photographers and nice rides.

On April 8-10, we'll have our Spring Run of The Dragon and would love for each of you to join us. We're all staying at Fontana Village which is nicely located at the start of Hellbender (another nice road) that takes us to The Dragon. Lodge rooms and cabins are available. Home - Fontana Village Resort We'll get started on Friday night (a few of us we'll be up that afternoon for some early driving) and we'll leave around lunch on Sunday.



Last fall's run was a great success and we would like to invite each of you to consider making the trip. We made some great friendships and had an absolute blast driving our cars.

Please click on our club's link below for more details. We'll keep adding additional details to this thread as we move closer to the date.

I'll be adding some photos of our fall run to this thread for your viewing pleasure.

View from the Cherohala Skyway: More of a scenic drive than a road race, this highway skirts a high-altitude line between the Cherokee and Nantahala national forests. The view from the top is amazing, and the road can be enjoyed at a quick clip when traffic is sparse.

It will be fun for sure. When Obeezy and I were driving up the mountain on the last leg of our trip, there were 20 Pontiac GTOs that came roaring down. It seriously gets your heart pumping and palms sweaty.

Thanks for the support from ARK Performance. We are excited to have you aboard and look forward to the future.


Obeezy. Get the wallet ready and quickly if you want to get there by April. Can't wait to see it if you do.
