Truck Fest, Go Fast! Roll Racing and more highlight weekend at the track
By Ronnie Kohrt
It's a busy June weekend at Bandimere Speedway as several categories featuring multiple styles of drag racing hit the race track! Corvette Connection Club Clash on Friday, Crossroads Trailer Jr. Drag Racing Series and VDRA on Saturday, Go Fast! Energy Drink Street Chaos on Saturday night and Five-R Trucks Truck Fest presented by Crossroads Trailer and Transwest // Summit Hauler on Sunday!
The Corvette Connection Club Clash hits the race track on Friday night. Racers race in clubs and earn points in all-team, 5-person and individually in the Hot Rod and Top Street categories.
Current points leader for the Hot Rod category is Michael Muhr, who holds a slim one-round lead over three other racers in the category, representing one of the tighter points chases at Bandimere so far this year.
Top Street points leaders are a father/son duo, but not racing as a team. Nate Larson and Tim Larson are tied for the points lead at the top of Top Street and 22 points ahead of No. 3.
Heavy Metal Racing holds the points lead in both the 5-person and all-team for Club Racing. For any event this weekend, racers can purchase tech cards or entries to an event prior to gate opening by CLICKING HERE.
Split into two phases of the day, Saturday morning and into the afternoon will feature the Crossroads Trailer Jr. Drag Racing series. Racing for points alongside the VDRA category, the points leaders in the Jr. Drag Racing Series are James Brown in JD1, Tristan Vehar in JD2 and Adyson Vogel in JD3.
The Vintage Drag Racing Association with help from Big Sky Energy will also be in action. Racing from back in the early days will feature front-engine dragsters, Anglia's and more! Racers can purchase tech cards by CLICKING HERE.
The Crossroads Trailer Jr. Drag Racing Series is presented by our friends at Kinsco, MagnaFuel, Security Safe of Colorado, ColoradoLift, Pepsi, Fineline, JR Race Car, Lucas Slick Mist, Tops Heating and Air Conditioning and SRA Photo.
The race track opens at 5pm on Saturday night for a whole new breed of racing. The Go Fast! Street Chaos Roll Racing night features roll racing. As opposed to a standing start, racers with street cars will begin from behind the tower, hit the starting line at 25mph and then GO FAST!
Presented by Go Fast! Energy Drink, roll racing is a popular growing style of racing on the scene as cars accelerate faster and work through their gearing at a much quicker pace, giving the driver the opportunity to see speeds upwards of 150+ on the norm in their street car.
The Go Fast! Energy Drink Championship jacket and leaderboard will feature the fastest names in six categories. Motorcycle, Truck, American, Front Wheel Drive Import, Rear or All-Wheel Drive Import and Luxury.
The fastest names in these categories will be featured on Bandimere.Com and the winners will receive a custom embroider jacket with name, car, speed, and details of the night.
Don't forget to check out our partners at Go Fast! Energy Drink (Sold at the tech building, concession stand and fuel store) and of course at 7-Eleven, King Soopers and online by CLICKING HERE.
