Date: May 2nd, 2014

Hello Everyone -- 
Wow, can you believe it.  It is already the first weekend of May in 2014 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, the cold and the rain am very ready for the warmer spring temps and finally to see something green instead white and brown 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 rain and ready to welcome our drag racers for another great year at Rock Falls Raceway!! 
The WEATHER for this weekend looks GOOD!   The rain has finally moved out at least for the weekend.  They are saying cloudy and 58 for Saturday BUT Sunny & 58 for Sunday!!   We should be goooooood to go!!!!
Rock Falls Raceway  has a great opening weekend (May 3-4) of drag racing in store for everyone!!  It's our 1st Bracket Race (for points) of the 2014 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!!

Road Construction/Detour Information:  If you use Eau Claire Exit 65 (Hwy 37) off of I-94 you will need to find an alternate route.  Both the on and exit ramps coming from both directions at this Exit are CLOSED for construction until Memorial Day.  Alternate routes and directions have been posted on our website @ 
 Here's what's on the schedule for this weekend:
Saturday, May 3 -- Test Day & Sat. Nite Special 
  • Gates Open at 7:45 a.m.

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

  • 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 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)!!

  • 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 2014 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!!  If you end up using all 5 and need more, no need to buy an additional package, you can get a Test Day for just $50 each for the remainder of the season.
