Hello Everyone -- 
Wow, can you believe it.  It is already the END of April and we are just getting our drag racing season underway due to Mother Nature and her very poor attitude this winter and spring!!  Somebody really ticked her off!!  I am SICK to death of the snow and cold and am very ready for the spring temps and eventually green scenery BUT especially those green lights on the xmas tree!!  It's been a VERY LONG winter and I am sure you all know what I mean by that. But be rest assured, the track looks good and the pits are free of snow and dry and are ready for our drag racers!! We did NOT get the amounts of snow that areas North and West of us received these last couple of weeks. We are good to go!!
The WEATHER for this weekend looks SPECTACULAR!!   They are saying 68 & Sunny for Saturday and 73 and Sunny for Sunday!!  Who doesn't like that kind of weather???  
Rock Falls Raceway  has a great opening weekend (April 27-28) of drag racing in store for everyone!!  It's our 1st Bracket Race (for points) of the 2013 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, April 27 -- Test Day, Chassis Certification & Sat. Nite Special 
  • Gates Open at 7:30 a.m.

  • Test Day Starts at 9 a.m. and Runs until 3:30 p.m.

  • Chassis Certification:  9 a.m. to 3 p.m. -- MUST Contact Jennifer to get your name on the list whether its for re-certification or the first time.  This will be on a first come, first serve basis.  Chassis Tag Fee paid directly to NHRA at the time of the certification is $150.   Jennifer can be reached at or (715) 858-0170.

  • Test Day CostPlease 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 ex ceptions!!  Its really that easy.

  • Gamblers Race for anyone who is Testing at approx. 2 p.m. -- $30 to enter (This is optional but for Testers Only)!!

  • 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 2013 racing season, think about purchasing the 5/$250!!  See Jennifer for details.  Its a $95 Savings!  Packages are for 1 person only and CANNOT be split among 2 or more people!!
