I'm waiting for allthrottleandsomebottle to do another track rental. I'd really like to try the 1/4 a few times but always worried I'll break something. We'll see what happens.

When Steve does his rentals he gives plenty of notice so you have time to plan.

I'll be hitting the track this summer. Also Dynotuned performance in Chesapeake and Rocket Performance in Yorktown does track rentals at Dinwittie during the summer. They haven't put out the track dates yet. I'll sure keep checking

Rocket Performance also does 1/4 mile run on their dyno during dyno nights they told me when I was there. Might be worth checking out sometime, I would rather run on the track myself but the dyno run would be easier on the drivetrain.
