Drivers will try their best for 3 days, Friday through Sunday, to accumulate a time fast enough to put them in the final heat.  The 3 drivers with the fastest accumulated race times, the top 3 in the Aggregate will have their shot, on the 4th day of racing, to fill their purse and carry on down the road. 

Every heat is a dash!

We would also like to thank the Rio Grande Committee for all their hard work and consideration. Last year, there was an amazing amount of work done to the grounds and it showed. The track was phenominal. It's a tough job making it right for everyone and there is never enough helping hands. We appreciate your efforts.
