Bremerton Raceway Racers:
Time to write some new stuff.
The 2021 schedule is done. The season opener will be April 2, 3, and 4th. That is Easter weekend. We will have the 29th Annual Mother’s Day race on May 9. Father’s Day weekend will be a NHRA National Open, featuring Stock/Super Stock Combo, Super Street, Super Gas, Super Comp, Super Quick and Wally’s for the bracket classes. July 4th weekend will be the Independence Day Shootout with the John Kilroy Footbrake Challenge and the Mike Sarver Memorial Shootout. August 27 – 29 will be the 27th Annual Nostalgia Drags. September 12 we will have the Day Fire Nationals and the season Finale will be October 3. The complete schedule will be posted on the website. The dates are set, there will be a couple of changes when the rest of the race groups give me their dates. The Car Club Challenge, hopefully the Super Shifters can make it back, and there a couple of other clubs that might make an appearance on Saturdays. As a reminder, the ET Finals will be held September 1- 5th at Woodburn Dragstrip. Don’t forget to sign up for points to get on the team. The form is on the website.
We plan on having special gamblers races on four Fridays in addition to the regular Friday night stuff. June 4, July 16, August 6, and August 20 have been designated. The gates will open at 1:00 instead of 3:00 and the tech card price will be $45.00. We plan on running cars at 2:00. About 4:00, we will start the gamblers race. Non-Electronics will be $25, and Electronics will be $40. Payout will be 80% of the money collected.
As far as the awards banquet goes, right now we cannot have it in December. Hopefully, things will lighten up by January and we can do things then. That is my current plan. We will keep you die hard racers informed.
Now on to new stuff. The pit spots have been renumbered. The current map and listing are on the website. Just remember, your physical pit spot has not moved, only the number on it has changed. We started with 0 and continued upward. We also got rid of the weird numbers, like 99A, 99G, etc. If you look at the posted list, you will see a column for the old number and then a column for the new number. The pit spots will have new paint marking them and a better paint for the numbers. If you renew prior to 12/31/2020, you will get a $25.00 discount on the price. The form is on the website.
Some of the tech card prices will raise. Super Pro will be $65.00, Pro will be $60.00, and Sportsman will be $50.00. Along with that, the payout will also increase. Super Pro winner will get $1000.00, Pro winner will get $900.00 and Sportsman winner will get $450.00. If there are more than 40 cars in Super Pro, the winner’s purse will increase, but the minimum will be $1000.00. Same for Pro, more that 40 cars and the winner’s purse will increase. In Sportsman, the purse goes up if more than 32 cars are entered. The rest of tech card prices will remain the same.
Another special we have come up with is for you to have the ability to buy five tech cards at the 2020 price. You have until 12/31/2020 to take advantage of this deal. What this means for Super Pro, Pro, and Sportsman racers is you would save $25.00 for the package of five. The form will be on the website. Each racer is only allowed one package for each category.
Gold cards for the 2021 champions will be good for free tech cards in 2022 in the series that the gold card in won. Regular season champions will be good for 2022 regular season, fall champions will be good for the 2022 fall season.
We have obtained a new sweeper to help with track prep. We also should have a new tractor for sweeping and dragging. Compulink personnel have agreed to come out in March and go through the timing system. Specifically, to fix the left lane 330’ timer. We should also have the FM radio station fixed.
Just a reminder, courtesy staging is in effect at Bremerton Raceway. Be a sportsman.
