IMPORTANT EVENT INFORMATION

Roll racing has been growing in popularity over the last several years. It will be a heads-up 1/4 mile race.
 
Racers roll onto the drag strip to start the race rather than from a complete stop. Roll racing mimics a “Highway Pull” but you are in a controlled, safer, legal environment. 
 
Roll racing is also much easier on the vehicle than drag racing from a dig. It is a great way for both experienced racers and people just getting into the sport to have fun while learning and getting comfortable with their cars. 
Below information is for Drag Racing only and does not pertain to Roll Racing or Open Track Racing.
