SKYVIEW DRAGS ADDS POINTS RACE TO SCHEDULE

Mother Nature has been extremely tempermental and as a result, we haven't even had our first Points Race yet. "Opening Day for Points Racing will be this Saturday, 05/24," said Track Director Amy Culver. "We've never started this late! We had to cancel all of our earlier scheduled points races because of weather and we couldn't get enough Test & Tune in to lay rubber down on the track."

As a result of losing the first 3 points races, Skyview Drags is adding a POINTS race to the schedule. Next weekend, we will have our regularly scheduled point race on Saturday, 05/31 and then we are adding a POINTS race for Sunday, 06/01. "This will be our first 2-day weekend race at the track this season," added Culver. "We are getting the word out to our racers as quickly as possible so that everyone can make plans to Race the Ridge next weekend.
