If you are in Macomb, IL I would seriously check out The Gate in St. Louis. It's a real nice facility. Not too awful far away from there was a track called Mid-America I think? Been a while since I was down that way...actually did a little trek with a few buddies ten or so years ago to go drag racing down in that area...

here's a link i found on a quick google search for the STL area http://www.stldragracing.com/

Q:Why did they decide to call it the “Harley Owners Group?”
A:Because the term “Special Ed” was already taken.

This is the one form of racing I'm not scared of killing myself doing on the Kat.

This comes from someone who used to work for two separate drag racing sanctioning bodies last season.

Drag legality with bikes is something i'm not really familiar with, but the guy I talked to with a drag Harley (before I bought the Kat) had just normal track leathers, same as you or i would buy at the store and rode with those. Of course, being a harley rider... they were black/orange.

I've heard good things about Cordova Dragway. Have fun!

What you will need depends on the track, but a few things you will need for sure no matter where you go:

Full Face Helmet
Leather gloves
Over the ankle boots
Tethered kill switch - some want it attached to the ignition wiring and some will let you attach it into the actual kill switch. Mine is attached to the switch.
