August 3 – Gateway Motorsports Park has had some incredible car counts this season and the series is winding down with only two Saturday point races remaining… and a very special SuperBucks Sunday event in the middle. The point races are heating up and the prizes keep getting better as the season winds down and our team prepares for the 2013 E.T. Finals.
Coming up on Saturday, August 10 is Bracket Point Race #9 in conjunction with the All-American Hot Rod Showdown and Mickey Thompson Tire Series. Along with a full-slate of bracket racing for Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman, Pro Motorcycle and Street Motorcycle, the series will be joined by both Jr. Dragster classes and the heads-up action of the Mickey Thompson Tire Series. As bracket eliminations begin to wind-down, they will be joined under the lights for the first ever Night of Thunder and Fire with the first Gateway appearance of the the Lucas Oil Terminal Velocity and MAV-TV Missile Jet Dragsters.
On Sunday, August 11, the Summer Super Bucks Sunday features a full-slate of bracket racing with a possible $5,000 to win for Super Pro, $2,000 to win for Pro and $300 to win for Sportsman as the feature of the All-American Hot Rod Showdown Grand Championship. Racers who won their Sunday categories at either the Mega Mopar, Super Chevy or Fun Ford will receive their free Golden Ticket entry into the run-off for their respective classes. Racers who did not win can still hop in the show and a chance at the big money for $150 for Super Pro and $80 for Pro. Multiple entries are available so racers can double their chances at winning the big money. At the end of the day the winners from the Super Pro, Pro and Sportsman classes will face-off for the NHRA National Dragster Challenge Hot Rod Class trophy.
The series concludes on Saturday, August 24 with points race #10 of the 2013 season. The NHRA King of the Track event has moved to the final race of the season to give all racers in all categories a shot at the King of the Track title.
