Saturday

Due to repeated weather delays, racing on day two, Saturday, April 07, 2018 was called at 3:17 PM with no hopes of drying the track and getting in some quality racing. On Sunday morning, April 8th, racing will resume with the lanes being loaded up at 8:45am to begin racing promptly at 9AM. C&S Custom Street ET, MPS Pro ET as well as Vance & Hines V-Twin will be called into action as the first wave of racing. These classes will be run back to back and then Q-2 of professional class racing will immediately follow these three classes, with Pingel Top Fuel leading the way, followed by the usual Man Cup run order. Awards for the class winners of the 2017 season were handed out and addressed on Saturday afternoon, to speed up the Sunday racing program. Racers need to be very alert to announcements on Sunday, as the racing program will be run with a quick tempo. Racers are expected to make calls to the lanes promptly.
