King of the Track Event to Decide zMAX Dragway Track Champions
Charlotte-area bracket racers will soon have the chance to become a 2013 zMAX Dragway track champion. On Saturday, March 9, zMAX Dragway will host a King of the Track champion’s day. Four classes will compete for Wallys, including Top Eliminator and Sportsman on the eighth-mile, and Super Pro and Pro Street on the quarter-mile. Winners from those four classes will compete for the King of the Track title and bragging rights for the 2013 season.
In addition to deciding 2013 track champions, the event will be used to select the zMAX Dragway team for the NHRA bracket finals.
“We wanted to give competitors a fun and affordable way to compete for the track championship,” said Christian Byrd, general manager of zMAX Dragway. “A one-day show gives everyone the opportunity to race for a Wally before points racing gets started at most area tracks.”
Two classes of Junior Dragsters will also compete, and the team for the Eastern Conference Finals at Bristol Dragway will be selected. Entry for Junior Dragsters is $25.
Gates open at 9 a.m. The first time-trial will be at 11 a.m. followed by eliminations.
Tickets are just $5 for spectators and children 13 and under are admitted for free with a paying adult. Spectator gates open at 9 a.m. Crew members are admitted for $10, and car and driver entry is $65. Early registration will be available Friday evening from 5 to 9 p.m. and registration will be available at the gate on Saturday.
The event will be preceded by a Test-N-Tune session on Friday, March 8. Tickets and registration will be available on the event day at zMAX Dragway. Car-and-driver registration for Test-N-Tune is only $20 per vehicle and tickets for spectators can be purchased at the gate for just $5. Kids 13 and under are free with a paying adult. Gates and registration for Test-N-Tune open at 4 p.m., with racing action from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
