Get your series points in and jump in an index class or two for double to triple the chances at taking home some money!  All classes (except Grumpys Diesel JR Dragster!) are 100% payback, more cars = more money! Multi classing and double entering ok, we’ll do our best to accommodate but ultimate it’s up to the drivers to make the call to the lanes!

Those of you looking for test & tune, we’d like to encourage you to get in a class that you most closely fit in, if that doesn’t work get a hold of us and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

The evening of Thursday August 2nd will be an all welcome / all run test & tune session which leads into our “Back to School” Jr Dragster going on all weekend. Gates open at 4pm, track hot at 6pm and we run until 10pm.  $12 at the gate (to match our weekend pricing schedule) or $30 for a Thurs-Sun weekend pass and a $10 tech card gets your hot rod on the race track.

Race cars, street cars, motorcycles and the rest of our normal Friday Frenzy crowd are more than welcome to join us on Thursday night, track will be basic prep (little glue & lots of dragging).  We will not have our normal Friday Frenzy due to the Jr race going on all weekend so if you’re looking to get on the track at ECD this weekend and you’re not a Jr, Thursday is your day!
