YOUR LAST OPPORTUNTITY TO RUN YOUR CAR OR BIKE DOWN THE QUARTER-MILE IN 2014!
We're down the final, LAST BLAST of the 2014 Season this Sunday. Gates will open at 10 am, followed by unlimited time runs and grudge racing from 11 am until 4 pm.
If you haven't quite got your fill of making runs this season (and can't wait to take advantage of $1 beers, .50 cent Pepsi drinks, and $1 hot dogs) - this event is for you! Even if you don't plan to race or test, why not come out and bench race, share stories about the past season, and just mingle with all in attendance.
The test fee is $25. Adult admission is $12, kids 6-12 $3, and 5 & under free.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2014 NHRA HOT ROD HERITAGE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS
Following this past weekend's NHRA Hot Rod Reunion, we wanted to recognize the 2014 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage national champions in both AA/Fuel Dragster and AA/Funny Car. Pulling off an extraordinary feat, Tony Bartone delivered a perfect season, winning every point's race this season. The New York racer won the March Meet, Pepsi Nightfire, Bowling Green (KY), Epping (NH) and the Reunion in Bakersfield this past weekend.
In Funny Car, the chase went down to wire as Dan Horan had to make the final round to capture the overall crown. Not only did he secure a spot in the final, but he downed John Hale in the title bout following a a string of 5.72, 5.72, 5.74 and 5.72 runs during eliminations. Horan was runner-up this year's NAPA Ignitor and winner of the Pepsi Nightfire this past August at Firebird.
Congratulations to both Tony and Dan - 2014 World Champions of the Heritage Series!
