The Saturday Nite Special Races are open to ALL Racers.
Come join us for the Saturday Nite Special in 2018!!
This year the Saturday Nite Special will be held, once again, after almost every Test Day before a Bracket Race starting with the first one on April 28.
CONTINUING for 2018: The payout is as follows: $500/Win, $200/RU and $100/Semis. If the number of entries 1st round exceeds 65 or more the payout increases to $750/Win, $300/RU and $125/Semis. Payout will be adjusted to the standard gambler’s race format if there are 32 vehicles or less in Rd. 1.
Come out to the Test Day, you can test and tune your car for just $72 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Or buy the 5/$260 and save some $$$)
If you’ve been testing, the cost to enter the Saturday Nite Special is just $30.
If you haven’t run the Test Day come and race anyway and your cost is just $50 to race and crew are $6 (if you arrive after 2 p.m.) Otherwise the crew fee is still $12/day before 2 p.m. Camping fees still apply for Sat Nite Special Racers who do not test!!
The Test Day shuts down at 3:30 p.m. and each Sat. Nite Special competitor will get one time trial, then its right in to eliminations around 4 p.m.
The no box and box vehicles will be run separately until the total field (combination of both classes) reaches 16 or less. At that time we will then put the remaining competitors on a ladder for the final rounds of competition.
IMPORTANT TECH UPDATE: Effective for the 2018 Season, ANY CAR THAT RUNS 9.99 or quicker or 135+ in the 1/4 mile NEEDS TO HAVE A NHRA ACCEPTED ENGINE DIAPER OR LOWER ENGINE OIL CONTAINMENT DEVICE!!
Effective 1/1/17 the Snell 2005 Helmets are no longer valid for use in drag racing if your vehicle runs 13.99 or quicker in the 1/4 mile. Currently, acceptable helmets for ET’s quicker than 13.99 are the Snell 2010 and Snell 2015. Please remind your fellow racers to check their helmets as well!! Thanks.
