Date: August 8th, 2014

Hello Everyone -- Rock Falls Raceway  has a huge weekend of drag racing in store for everyone!! We hope you'll be able to join us whether it's coming out to race or just to watch!!
We have a couple of special programs going on this weekend that you won't want to miss, so again we hope you'll attend. Weather is supposed to be good!!
First before I get to the details of the weekend, I have an announcement:
E.T. FINALS -- The Division 5 E.T. Finals is just around the corner. It will take place in Denver, CO the weekend of September 12-14. If you are interested in attending on behalf of Team Rock Falls Raceway, the signup sheet is located at the Souvenir Window of the Concession Stand where you normally purchase your tech cards. Now, in order to be able to attend and participate in the E.T. Finals you MUST be a member of Team Rock Falls and a member of our Gold Rush Points Standings. Also anyone who attends on behalf of any Division 5 Race Track MUST have ATTENDED at least 2 points races during the course of the 2014 race season, NO EXCEPTIONS. So, if you have not attended at least 2 points races yet but are interested in going to the E.T. Finals, you have 2 races this month in which to get those in. The team will be set after the last Bracket Race in August (the 24th) based on points totals. The Race of Champions spots for each class will also be determined after the August 24 Bracket Race as that will be the last bracket event BEFORE the ET Finals. Any questions, please see Jennifer.
Here's what's on the schedule for this weekend:
Saturday, August 9 --  Test Day, Jr. Dragster Challenge Race, Sat. Nite Special & Annual Harmel Corn Feed 
  • Gates Open at 8 a.m.

  • Test Day Runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.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 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)!!

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