This Week at the Track

Hey race fans!

The NHRA Jr. Dragsters take to the track at Route 66 Raceway's record-setting 1/4-mile drag strip on Saturday, August 18 for their last event of the season. 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, August 18, fans will be treated to the third Tournament of Destruction Team Demolition Derby of the 2007 season. 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.
