5280 Raceway in Colorado, has a great plan to get more people racing this summer. So we are going to build on their plan and add a little 702 style to it. Since we already have our annual July Jamboree race series on Wednesday nights in July, we’re going to open that up to extend between June through September and call it “Vegas Summer Nights”!
We are planning summer nights races for Wednesday and Thursday nights. We will have one on-road and off-road class a month race on weekday nights. Here’s how it will work:
- June, Wednesday nights we’ll race USVTA, and Thursday nights we’ll race 17.5 2WD buggy.
- July, we’ll race F1 on Wednesday nights, with 13.5 Stadium trucks on Thursday nights.
- August will be Euro Trucks on Wednesdays, and 4WD buggies on Thursday nights.
- September, we’ll have USGT’s on Wednesdays and 2WD Mod Buggies on Thursday nights.
Races will start at 6pm and only that class will race that night. Race format will be our usual 1 qualifier and Triple A-Mains. We’ll take a 30 minute break between each round. Between rounds, track will be open for open practice for anyone, not just the class of Da Nite.
We’re not calling this a series, just some weekday racing to have fun through the summer months. But, at the end of it all, we’ll give out an award and unique t-shirts to the top 3 participants in both programs over the four months regardless of wins or loses. If we have a tie, the tie breaker will be most wins, regardless of class, in that 4 month period.
