Index Series returning in 2015

It’s been described as doorslammer racing meets bracket racing. One thing’s for sure, Index Racing brings out the best in competition as racers go head’s up, leaving the starting line at the same time, sprinting down the quarter-mile to the finish line.

Maple Grove Raceway will once again sponsor a season of Index Racing in 2015 with cars competing in three classes: 8.50, 10.00 and 11.50. Any questions regarding the Index Race please submit to Jason Leber : jleber@maplegroveraceway.com
Races are scheduled for:

• May 9: A special race for 11.50 cars only. The winner and runner-up will be part of a special eight-car showcase eliminator at the Toyota NHRA Summernationals at Old Bridge Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J. Joining the Maple Grove entrants will be two cars each from Atco, Cecil County and Raceway Park.
• June 28
• Aug. 29
• Sept. 19

Entry fee for 8.50 is $100, while 10.00 and 11.50 is $55.
