As many of you already know, this year will be Pacemakers Dragway Park's 60th (Diamond) Anniversary. For this being such a huge milestone in the track's history, we decided to try to make this year all about having fun and always having a chance to gain. For this reason, we have been putting together a program to replace the normal points system for this season.
Unlike previously where you could come to the track and race to earn points, we will not be tracking points for the season. Instead, when you arrive at the gate and pay your entry, you receive a "Diamond Ticket" that you are responsible to keep a hold of all season, then at the end of the season at the 2015 Awards Banquet, you may put your diamond tickets into any drawing of your choice; and no, these won't be your everyday drawings. Our great sponsors are working on putting together parts packages, coupons, and special offers for our dedicated racers. So you can earn anything from a cash prize to a new set of heads or slicks for your car or even further!
While many of you will have questions on if this will ever work, we want to assure you that this will make for one of the most fun seasons you've had in drag racing in a long time. How's that? Our intentions with this program are to grow our racing community by bringing in new racers from all over and bringing our every weekend racers closer together. With the normal points system, we see many people jumping down other peoples' throats and tensions rising throughout the track on all levels. We want to be that one track that everybody can go to to just have fun and have a good time. We hope to see many new faces bringing new competition to the track.
As we have mentioned before, this is all a work in progress, so as we gain more concrete details, we will assure you that we will inform all of you in every way we can so that every racer knows the details. So, be sure to join our mailing list, text alerts list, and like our Facebook page (and be sure to check here often) for more details regarding what we believe will be a very fun season for all racers and spectators alike.
Questions of concerns? Just head over to our contact page to reach us for details and we will try to answer to the best of our abilities.
Thank you all again for being great supporters of such a historical drag strip.
