NOTE TO ALL ET SERIES RACERS!

Attention all Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series racers! We are halfway through the season and are beginning to look towards points championships, Wally races and racer incentives. Just so we are all on the same page as the end of the season quickly approaches please make note of the following on your calendars:
  • There are five (5) Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series points races left. (August 10, 11, 24 & 25, September 7). Please note that there are two (2) doubleheader weekends which will allow the opportunity for bonus points to be earned. Ten (10) bonus points can be earned for attending both days in a doubleheader weekend. That means 20 points are up for grabs for simply attending all four (4) days of the doubleheaders and staging the car in the first round.
  • There are two (2) points races left in this season for the SRS Fitness/ Custom Chassis & Performance Pro Dial Class. (August 10 & 24).
  • The SRS Fitness/ Custom Chassis & Performance Pro Dial class will be run at the Pennsylvania Dutch Classic PCRichard.com National Open presented by Penske Truck Leasing. No points will be awarded at the Dutch Classic for Pro Dial.
  • The Northeast Division Summit Racing ET Finals will be at Lebanon Valley Dragway in West Lebanon, New York on September 18-21. The last day to earn points in order to qualify for Bracket Finals is Saturday, September 7th.
  • The Maple Grove Raceway Management Team will be going through the points standings Saturday, September 7th in order to drop the two (2) lowest points earning races. Racers in Super, Pro, Sportsman and Top Bike will have their two (2) lowest points earning races in the 2019 Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series dropped from counting toward their championship point total. Please note this also includes if a racer does not attend that event.
  • The King of the Track program will be run on Saturday, August 24th. It will run the same way as in previous years. Racers participating in Super, Pro, Sportsman and Top Bike are eligible to participate. The winner in Super, Pro, Sportsman and Top Bike will race each other until one racer remains. That remaining racer will be Maple Grove Raceway’s 2019 King (or Queen) of the Track and will receive a Wally Trophy and custom King of the Track hat.
  • Maple Grove Raceway was approached by NHRA a few weeks ago asking if we would be interested in hosting the official 2019 NHRA Drag Racing State Championships. We quickly accepted, believing this to be a great opportunity for our bracket racers. So on Sunday, August 25th we will be having the NHRA Drag Racing State Championships. This will still be a normal Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series race where points will be earned. This will not affect any run orders or time runs. The normal race will be held, however, the class winners in Super, Pro, Sportsman, Top Bike, Junior Dragster and Junior Street will be named 2019 NHRA Drag Racing State Champions. Each winner will receive their normal monetary payout but will also be going home with a special Wally plaque to recognize their achievements. 
  • The top 16 in points (as of August 24, 2019) in each of our four (4) primary classes (Super, Pro, Sportsman and Top Bike) will have the chance to compete at the MOPAR ExpressLane NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil. Each class (Super, Pro, Sportsman and Top Bike) represents a bracket of 16 with the winner of each bracket advancing into the “Final Four”. The top 64 racers will race at the Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series events on August 25th and September 7th until only 16 racers remain. Those remaining 16 racers will compete at the MOPAR ExpressLane NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil, September 13-15, 2019. The Rules for the Super 64 are as Follows: The Super 64 will be run 1/4 mile. Racers must run Super 64 decals in the specified location for the entire season. Super 64 will run at the Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series events on August 25th and September 7th. Remaining 16 racers will compete at the MOPAR ExpressLane NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil on September 13-15, 2019. 
  • Lastly, all trailers, motorhomes, cars, etc MUST be moved by the end of the day on Saturday, September 7th. We are very firm on this date given NHRA will begin preparing on Sunday, September 8th.
