UPDATED 2013 Racing Schedule now available…

Published by Johnny Davis on March 9, 2013

Update:  March 9 – WE HAVE ADDED DATES FOR THE LADIES CHALLENGE SERIES, MOTORCYCLE POINTS SERIES, QUICK 8 PROGRAMS FOR TOP AND MOD AND SOME OTHER UPDATES – CHECK OUT THE REVISED SCHEDULE NOW!  We are still finalizing some of our programs for 2013 but in an effort to get you our most up to date schedule for your planning, here is the 2013 Tentative Racing Schedule.  We have a few TBA events listed as we finalize some events. 

For 2013, we see the return of the AED ET Points Series with an expanded 16 events (new for 2013, racers will get 2 vacation vouchers (10 points each) to be used at the first 2 missed races (non rainouts) in 2013)  Racers that attend all 16 events (or every event that is contested after rainouts) will get a 3 point bonus at the end of the season.  “These changes are designed to reward our racers with flexibility for vacations and other events during the season while honoring those that attend every event with a small bonus as well.  Trying to find the right balance is a tough program but I believe this combines the best of both worlds for our racers!” commented track owner, Johnny Davis. 

Also returning to the schedule is our wildly popular AED Friday Night Street Series and Open Test and Tune.  Those events will be contested 14 Friday nights April through October.  Marquee events including the Collision One $10 Grand Slams, Friday Night Showdown Series, AutoFab Raider Challenge, Halloween Klash, Hangover Nationals and the IHRA Pro Am Tour also find prominent positions in our lineup.  We will also see visits from the Heads Up 4.90 Series and the Southern Outlaw Top Sportsman Series as well. 

“This schedule is a combination of working to find the “sweet spot” for our racers in combination with working with our local tracks to balance schedules regionally for everyone’s benefit.  The only thing left is to fire up those motors, do a quick burnout and hit the track!  I can’t wait for 2013 to start!”

As of 3/12/13 we have made some adjustments to the 2013 racing schedule including the addition of the Susan McLauchlan Jewelers Ladies Challenge Event dates (must be street legal cars with license, inspection, closed exhaust and valid tags), a new 6 race Motorcycle ET Points Series crowning the first Motorcycle Track Champion in nearly 10 years and our Quick 8 events for Dragsters/ Doorslammers and Modified ET along with a special addition to our Wednesday Night Program with a 5.99 and quicker doorslammer class (to be run in the same manner as the Southern Outlaw Top Sportsman do)  Check out our updated schedule TODAY!
