This Week at the Track

The NHRA Jr. Dragsters invade Route 66 Raceway's record-setting 1/4-mile drag strip on Saturday, June 30. Gates open at 9 a.m. Admission to the event is free.

NHRA Jr. Dragster provides drivers from the Midwest the opportunity to compete at Route 66 Raceway for savings bonds, trophies and a chance to participate in the Eastern Conference Finals for an opportunity to win college scholarships. Drivers must be registered members of the NHRA Junior Dragster Racing League (JDRL).

Later in the evening on Saturday, June 30, fans will be treated to the first Tournament of Destruction Team Demolition Derby of the 2007 season due to inclement weather postponing the May 26 Team Demolition Derby. Gates open at 5 p.m., with the event scheduled to begin at 7:15 p.m. Tickets purchased in advance are $16 for adults and $11 for juniors (12 & under). Tickets purchased on the day of the event are $20 for adults and $15 for juniors.

Team demo style racing is fast and catastrophic, with 50 mph head-on collisions, heavy side swipes and cars totaled in just one hit. Team demo derbies always have eight teams. Each team has four cars, squaring off two teams at a time, in a round-robin until there's a winner. To win the evening's event, the team must win three rounds.

NOTE: The Team Demolition Derby that was postponed due to inclement weather on May 26, 2007 has been rescheduled for September 22, 2007. Tickets that were purchased for the May 26 date can be redeemed for the rescheduled September 22 date or they may be exchanged in advance for another dirt oval event during the 2007 season.

**The AMA Flat Track Championship event that was postponed due to inclement weather on Saturday, June 23, 2007 has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 7, 2007. Fans who already purchased tickets in advance can redeem them at the gate on the day of the event.
