Along with two Test & Tunes, Route 66 Raceway's 1/4-mile drag strip will host the second Jr. Dragster event of the 2006 season, followed by the second of four Tournament of Destruction Team Demolition Derbies at the 1/2-mile dirt oval on Saturday, June 24.

Test & Tune
This week, fans have the opportunity to come out and participate in not one, but TWO Test & Tunes on Tuesday, June 20 and Wednesday, June 21. Gates open at 4 p.m. on both days. Admission to each event is $15; children 12 and under are free. Participants can purchase run cards for $25 per Test & Tune.

Test & Tunes are open time trials and testing opportunities for individuals looking to fine tune their drag racing skills, and are open to any class of vehicle, as long as it passes NHRA technical inspection set forth in the 2006 NHRA Rulebook. This is a day for the die hard drag racer to come out and play at Route 66 Raceway. During these events, there are no eliminations, no purses and no prizes or awards.

Tournament of Destruction Team Demolition Derby
Later in the evening on Saturday, June 24, fans will be treated to another exciting event when the Tournament of Destruction Team Demolition Derby takes to the dirt oval.

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.
