Pro ‘Time only Testing”    $100       Testing and license runs for non-competing classes . No that is not

a typo…it’s $100.  We don’t want hundreds of cars testing that may oil the track, chew up the start line and cause a back-up in staging that delays the bracket program.  This is reserved for up to 10 racers who need good testing/license conditions.  Racers should call Tony Spatola in advance to make him aware that they are coming (618-215-8888 ext. 109).



Restricted Area Access:   Restricted area includes the area in front of the tower, the return road, the ‘short chute’ and the starting line area.  Anyone not having a restricted area wristband will be directed to the grandstands.  This will apply at all Gateway Motorsports Park events.


Payouts:  All payouts will take place in the tower and will begin approximately 15 minutes following the conclusion of eliminations.  We do not pay out until the race is deemed complete and we’ve had the opportunity to cut the check.  All payouts are based on the actual number of racers participating in round 1 of eliminations.


Dial-Ins:  Please make sure your car number and dial-in are properly displayed on the rear window –or- facing toward the back of your car.  The clock operator can only see the rear of your car once you pull out from under the tower.


Public Address; Please listen to the Public Address on 92.7 FM on your radio dial!


Common Sense Reminder: While not a problem at most bracket events, we would like to remind everyone that dry launches and burnouts are not permitted in the pit areas.  If you must warm up your car please do so along the return road and away from pit and spectator areas.  Please adhere to 15 mile-per-hour pit area speed limits. Do not warm up while Jr. Dragster participants are racing.


Bonus Race Participants: If you elect only to compete in the 1/8 mile bonus classes you do not receive a separate time trial run.  If you are a box entrant you can time trial when Super Pro makes its ¼ mile pass.  If you are a no-box entrant you can time trial when Pro makes its ¼ mile pass.


This week’s Bonus Race:   Since we are having an earlier start time due to the King of the Track Run-Off tonight, we will offer buybacks in the 1/8 mile bonus races.  Here’s this week’s payout structure:


Entry Fee:              $50                            Payout will be 100% of bonus race entry fees for first round.

Buybacks:               $30                            Track retains buyback.


100% Payout:                                         50% winner / $20% runner-Up / 10% semi / 2.5% qtr

Percentages will be adjusted for odd semi’s and qtrs..
