Okay racers and fans, the next drag racing event in the Maritimes is coming up this coming weekend September 6th and 7th. The gates will be open Friday afternoon with tech inspection available after supper. The racing will begin first thing Saturday morning with time trials starting things off. Later in the day, the Pro Tree series will be in the lanes to qualify for the 10.90, 9.90, and 8.90 classes, followed by eliminations. Saturday afternoon will also feature a Box and No Box race open to all racers.
Things will get rolling early Sunday morning with time trials, before heading into qualifying for all classes. As summer winds down, I encourage everyone to get out for some late season racing. With the cool fall air blowing in, we are sure to find that horsepower that leads to those personal best e.t.’s.
Miramichi Dragway has been making some very impressive improvements around the facility throughout the summer and things are looking good. Earlier in the season, the new tower was put into full operation. Then came the complete new sounds system. If you haven’t been there since the new sound went in, you will be in for a nice surprise. It sounds great from one end of the pits to the other. Just this past week, the new scoreboards were put in place, and the track is confident they will have them functional for this weekend’s race. Rudy has really dedicated himself to improving this facility over the last year. If you see him wandering the pits, please stop and shake his hand and let him know just how much you appreciate what he has done for the local drag racers and fans.
As always, there is free camping on site for both racers and spectators with your paid weekend admission. There is also a food vendor on site. Looking forward to a huge crowd as the number of events for this season winds down. See you all there on Friday!!!!!
