Dells Raceway Park Drivers Meeting/Awards This Saturday
With just over six weeks left until the start of the 2012 Dells Raceway Park season, officials and drivers are ready to sort out some of the final details of the offseason before kicking off DRP's 50th season on Saturday, May 19.
This Saturday at the Wintergreen Resort and Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells, DRP officials will host an informational meeting for all teams that plan to race at the venue in 2012. The informational meeting will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will cover rules and policies for teams that race in the four weekly divisions.
Super Late Model teams are welcome to attend to brush up on track policies, but a rules update will be released at a later time. Super Late teams with rules questions are encouraged to contact Tom Lichtfeld at 608-697-5341.
After the informational meeting, DRP will host an informal Awards Ceremony to honor competitors from the 2011 season. The top three and rookie of the year in each division will be awarded a trophy. DRP will provide pizza and beer (for those of age) to attendees. A cash bar will also be open.
Drivers who did not finish in the top three in points are encouraged to attend to enter drawings for contingency prizes. Those drivers who competed in 75 percent of the 2011 events are eligible to win.
Among the prizes are: a body from FiveStar Race Car Bodies, three barrels of racing fuel from VP Race Fuels, $250 certificates from AFCO, QA1 Shocks, Bassett Wheels, and Quartermaster, and various products from Joe's Racing Products, Lefthander Chassis, Wehr's Machine and Longacre. With plenty of contingencies to go around, DRP officials expect to add even more before Saturday's Awards Ceremony.
Drivers and teams from the 2011 season planning to attend the Awards Ceremony are asked to provide a rough head count of their group by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 4.
