Hello Everyone -- 
Are you ready for a fun-filled weekend of drag racing?  I know I am.  Looks like we are going to have some summer weather to start off the weekend.
Rock Falls Raceway  has a huge weekend (May 19-20) of drag racing in store for everyone!!  It's our 3rd Bracket Race (for points) and it's technically our 2nd Jr. Dragster Race, but the 1st one got rained out, so its kind of the first Jr. Race of the 2012 Season.  Just remember, Bracket Races are Open to ALL Racers!!  We hope you'll be able to join us whether it's coming out to race or just to watch!!
 Here's what's on the schedule for this weekend:
Saturday, May 19 --  Test Day, Jr. Dragsters & Sat. Nite Special 
  • Test Day Runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

  • Gates Open at 7:30 a.m.

  • Test Day starts at 9 a.m.

  • Cost: Please read for Explanation!! $69 + $10 = $79/Car & Driver $10 + $10 = $20/Per Crew
    Because we consider the Saturday Test Day/Sunday Bracket Race a 2-day event, we charge for a 2-day armband on Saturday for EVERYONE who comes in the gate. Now, if you are NOT staying or planning to come back for the Sunday Bracket Race, when you leave on Saturday, you turn your armband back in at the front gate where you got them and you will get $10 back on the armband. As such, the Test Day then still only costs you $69 for Car/Driver and Crew is still $10/each. Again, you do get your money back for the armband as long as you stop and turn it in. You cannot keep the armband until the next time and say "oh I forgot to turn this in". That will not work. It must be turned in when you leave on Saturday, NO exceptions!! Its r eally that easy.

  • Jr. Dragsters --  2 Age Groups -- Jr. Major - Ages 8-12 and Jr. Advanced - Ages 13-17!!

    Jr. Dragster Testing -- Make a pass down the track at 12 noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.  -- Just $30 for Car/Driver.  $10/Crew.

    Free Consolation Race for any Jr. driver who loses 1st round of competition.  All ages combined for Consolation Race.

  • Saturday Nite Special -- 3:30 p.m.  --  One time run and then right in to eliminations.  If you've been testing it's just $30 to enter.  If you have not, you can still race it's just $49 to enter.  Box and No Box vehicles are separated until the total field reaches 16 or less at which time they are combined on a ladder for the final rounds of competition.  Payout is $500/Win; $200/RU and $100/Semis for 33 cars or more 1st Rd.  (If 32 cars or less in 1st rd. payout reverts to Gambler's Format). 

  • Also, if you're planning to attend 5 or more Test Days throughout the 2012 racing season, think about purchasing the 5/$250!!  See Jennifer for details.  Its a $95 Savings!
