Racer’s at the annual meeting held March 1st expressed a desire for Maple Grove Raceway to schedule some later start Saturday events. They felt the late start would enable racers who work on Saturday a better chance of attending the events.
In an effort to accommodate this situation Maple Grove Raceway announced today that two Money Trail events set for June 20th and August 22nd will offer the following time schedule. Gates open 11:30A time trails, 12:30P eliminations following 2 time trials, 4PM. August 22nd will also offer the annual NHRA King of the Track program with the overall winner receiving an NHRA Wally and a King of the Track jacket.
We all thought the winter weather wasn’t going to end after last weeks storm. Mother Nature decided to cooperate today to bring us blue skies and sunshine with temps in the low 50′s. Our maintenance crew has officially begun working on the track by removing the snow from the surface and making saw cuts into the asphalt to start the removal process. Stay tuned the next few weeks to follow the track renovation project.
