SUNDAY UPDATE:  We were unable to complete Saturday’s qualifying and eliminations of the IDBL 18th annual Pingel Spring Nationals due to weather. The weather forecast for Sunday is now calling for partly sunny skies with temps in the 50’s and rain ending in the early a.m.

We will complete the final qualifying session for Vance & Hines 4.60 Index, Orient Express Pro Street, and DME Racing Real Street on Sunday morning.

All sportsman classes will receive one time run on Sunday morning, and then we will go into eliminations for all classes.
Grudge will run behind every pro session on Sunday.

Gates will open at 7:30am, and we will start racing as soon as the track is dry with our normal run order.

All Saturday wristbands are good for Sunday. New entries are permitted in all classes tomorrow except for Top Sportsman because their ladder is already set.

Thank you for your support and we will see you all early on Sunday morning!
