Expanded “Bracket Racing Series” schedule highlights 2019 calendar of events
The countdown to Motor Mile Dragway’s new season has officially begun with the release of its 2019 schedule.
Motor Mile Dragway will host a total of 23 events in 2019. The dragway’s flagship “Friday Night Fury” program is slated for 15 dates, with the “Bracket Racing Series” competing in eight races over four weekends next season.
“Our 2018 season was a success, and our optimism in the future is reflected in our 2019 schedule,” says Motor Mile Speedway & Dragway General Manager Michelle Vaught. “Our Friday Night Fury program continues to grow in popularity, and we’ve added dates to our “Bracket Racing Series” schedule after a strong showing of support from the bracket racing community in 2018. We’re ready for 2019!”
Foremost among Motor Mile Dragway’s schedule enhancements is an expanded “Bracket Racing Series” program. All divisions will compete in two additional races in 2019. The “Bracket Racing Series” begins May 4th-5th, with the remaining events scheduled for June 8th-9th, July 20th-21st and August 10th-11th.
Participating divisions include Super Pro, Footbrake, Street, Jr. Dragster and Motorcycles.
Motor Mile Dragway’s popular “Friday Night Fury” program is comprised of 13 Friday nights, and will continue to showcase heads-up racing in conjunction with conventional components such as the popular Friday Night Street Class and Test & Tune. The unique “Friday Night Fury” format provides anyone with a valid driver’s license the opportunity to turn their car or truck into a racing machine.
The 2019 season will begin with two special Saturday installments of the Friday Night Fury program. Slated for April 6th and April 13th, “Shakedown Saturday” will feature all the components of the Friday Night Fury program in a modified Saturday format.
A detailed Friday Night Fury division schedule is forthcoming.
