ADRL Summer Drags
US 131 Motorsports Park
As the American Drag Racing League rolls in to US 131 Motorsports Park for this weekend’s Summer Drags IX, the championship points chases are what everyone seems to be focusing on. With just two points-earning events left to gain a spot in the $500,000 ADRL Battle for the Belts, which will feature the top eight point’s earners in all ADRL classes, competitors know that every run counts. With a great forecast for the weekend, fans in Michigan could witness one of the most exciting ADRL events in recent memory.
This year’s Battle for the Belts will be contested as a stand-alone shootout on Friday, September 6, at Rockingham Dragway during ADRL’s most historic and prestigious event, Dragstock. The top eight points earners in each ADRL class will be do battle for a half a million dollars in prize monies.
“With the new format of contesting the Battle for the Belts as a separate race and so much money on the line, getting in the top eight over the next two events is more important than ever” said ADRL President Kenny Nowling. “Less than two rounds separate number eight through number eleven in each class, so these next two events should be awesome for our fans.”
