Inaugural $5k/$7k at I-57: August 11
« on: June 07, 2018, 11:00:19 AM »
Introducing the 5/7 @ I-57!



I've been saying there's a market for a race like this all year on the podcast: time to put my money where my mouth is!

Two races in one day
Guaranteed Purse:
$5k-to-win first race, $7k-to-win 2nd
Double entries allowed in any form
Buybacks & schedule structured to ensure an efficient event

One day w/ lots of racing & guaranteed money.  I think this makes a ton of sense for racers within 4-5 hours!  Hope to see many of you there!

This Saturday (August 11) brings the inaugural 5/7 event to I-57 Dragstrip in Benton, IL.  The premise: 2 races in one action-packed day ($5,000-to-win Race 1, $7,000-to-win Race 2).  Why you dont want to miss it:
1.   Two GUARANTEED purse events in One day (less travel expense)!
2.   No pre-entry hassles (come on in & pay at the tower)
3.   Double Entry Welcome (same car/same driver OK)
4.   Dragsters & Door Cars Welcome (Will be called to lanes separate rounds 1-4)
5.   Buybacks limited or completely eliminated based on car count (see flyer)
6.   Free Friday Test & Tune w/ Saturday entry (1 time trial Saturday morning for everyone)
7.   Fun Atmosphere: Its fan appreciation night, so well have a lots of spectators to watch the action!
8.   Hospitality: an appreciative staff & the best concessions in the Midwest!
9.   No Box racers welcome (This is an amendment to the flyer pictured): cross talk will be turned off in the lane of racers who wish (tell the tower upon entering and display the N on your window).  No Box competitors will run with the door cars (no separate class/call).
10.   All purses 100% guaranteed by Luke Bogacki & Scott Bailey

We look forward to seeing you Friday evening/Saturday morning!
