About Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Castrol GTX Friday Night Drags Opening Night

Description

HAMPTON, Ga. (May 11, 2007) – Fans of Atlanta Motor Speedway’s new Castrol GTX Friday Night Drags series will have to wait one more week to get their speed fix. May 18 will now serve as the opening night of the 2007 season as tonight’s activities have been cancelled due to inclement weather.

Competitors were able to get their practice runs in, but storms in the area prevented track officials from getting the drag elimination rounds started.

For the 2007 season, points will be awarded each night during the 12-week season with the drag division winner taking home three points, second-place two points and the rest of the participants will be awarded one point. The competitor with the most points at the end of the season wins the championship title to be determined on September 7. All of tonight’s competitors who showed up to compete were awarded one point, which will count in the season long battle.

The Show N’ Shine contest did take place and trophies were awarded. Tonight’s competition showcased everything from new imports to classic muscle cars; even a drag boat was entered.

Show-N-Shine winners include:
Showroom Current (1973 through current): Brian Rice (McDonough) in a 2001 SS Camaro
Showroom Classic (1972 and prior): Billy Peek (Newnan) in a 1968 Camaro RS/SS
Foreign: Brian Sheets (Locust Grove) in a 1961 Volkswagen Beetle
Current Custom (1973 through current): Jesse Olive (Hampton) in a 2005 Scion
Classic Custom (1972 and prior): Charles Chapman (McDonough) 1933 Ford

All fans and drag competitors who purchased admission for tonight’s event need to bring their ticket stub or competitor wristband to the May 18 event to gain admission.

Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Castrol GTX Friday Night Drags will return on May 18 featuring an all Harley-Davidson drag showcase. Pit Gates open at 6:00 p.m. Grandstand gates at 6:30 p.m. Drag practice runs start at 6:40 p.m. and nightly drag race eliminations start at 9:10 p.m. Entry for drag racing or the Show N’ Shine is $20, spectator tickets are $7 for adults and children under six are free.
