Date: July 26th, 2013

Hello Everyone -- 
Well the weekend is just about here and for those of you who have Today (Friday) off it is here!!  The weather looks to be dry and perfect temps for racing (a little on the cool side for the end of July) but I am not complaining.  We are forecasted for temps in the low to mid 70s and none of the "r" word for this weekend.  I think its about time Mother Nature gave us a break, don't you!!

Rock Falls Raceway 
has a HUGE weekend of drag racing in store for everyone and it should be one heck of a spectacular weekend for drag racing!!  We hope you'll be able to join us whether it's coming out to race or just to watch!!  If you are coming out to watch, this would be th e weekend to do so!!  I suspect that we will have a large number of vehicles and those should include dragsters, roadsters, door slammers, muscle cars, motorcycles and snowmobiles. 

WHY you might ask???  Well because Rock Falls Raceway has a 2-day Big Dollar Bracket Race (Presented by 101 Transport and Rock Falls Raceway) with $5000 to win on Saturday, July 27 and $2000 to win on Sunday, July 28!!  And we're hoping that all of the racers from the WI, MN and IA areas come out and support the event!! It should be loads of fun!!  Great Entry Fee, Great Round Money and Great Payout overall!!  A special thanks also goes out to the following businesses who are also contributing to the Big Race by putting up special awards to a few lucky racers each day of the event!!  Those businesses are:  United Trailer Leasing, Riverfront Athletic Club, Royal Tire, Marc O Builders, Dahlberg Motorsports & Affordable Transmission.  Thanks again for your support!!

For further and complete details on the Big Dollar $$$ Bracket Race please check out our website and here's the direct link to the info for this race:
So here's what's on the schedule for this coming weekend July 27-28:

Friday, July 26 -- Pit Side Parking from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.  (If you arrive AFTER 9 p.m. you will have to park on the spectator side until gates open on Saturday morning at 7 a.m.)
Saturday, July 27 --  Short Test Day, Jr. Dragsters & Big $5K to Win Bracket Race 
  • Gates Open at 7:00 a.m.

  • Test Day Starts at 8:00 a.m. and Runs until 12 p.m. noon.  Lanes will close at 11:50 and we will run out the remaining tester vehicles in the lanes. 

  • Test Day Cost: Please read for Explanation!! $49 + $10 = $59/Car & Driver     $15 + $10 = $25/Per Crew   (Sat. July 27 armbands are $15 instead of $10 because of the Big $$ Bracket Race which is taking place.  (If you are leaving directly after the Test Day and NOT staying to participate or watch in the Big Dollar Bracket Race, we will refund you $15 instead of the normal $10 but you must leave the track by 1 p.m. otherwise after that only $10 will be refunded.)

    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 w ill get $10 back on the armband. As such, the Test Day then still only costs you $49 for Car/Driver and Crew is still $15/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 really that easy.

  • BIG Dollar $5K Bracket Race -- Time Trials (2 are scheduled) will start at 12:15 p.m.  We will start with No Box and then go to Box.  We will complete 1 full session and then start over from the beginning.  After the conclusion of the Time Trials we will start with Round 1 of Eliminations and we will start with No Box first, followed by Box.  The Big $$ Bracket Bash will run in conjunction with the Jr. Dragster program so we will be alternating between the two programs.  (Remember, as always, schedule may be adjusted, if needed, due to extenuating circumstances.)

  • Entry Fee for 2-day Big $$ Bracket Race is $215.  Crew is $25 for 2-days.  (Saturday Only Race Entry is $175 for $5000 to Win).

  • Jr. Dragsters -- 1 Age Group -- Ages 8-17
