MANDRA Atco precap
Good morning MANDRA racers
Sunday Sept 22nd MANDRA goes to Atco Dragway for their Nostalgia Fall Classic. Mother Nature is in our favor it should be a nice day for racing. Atco has the lowest elevation of all the tracks we race at, so the cars should be fast.
John Hakes Auto Service will be the event sponsor, there will be a payout for the winner, runner-up and semi-finalist. MANDRA will receive a bonus for a 24 car field which will allow for a payout to third round runner-ups, (third round losers). There must be 24 cars for the third round runner-up purse.
There will be a consolation race at Atco after first round, entry fee is $10, we need a minimum of 6 cars for the consolation race.
Gates open at 9AM. MANDRA admission for racers will be $50. Be sure to tell them at the gate you are with MANDRA.
Some members have asked where MANDRA pits, in the past we have always pitted along the fence at the end of the staging lanes.
For those who want to arrive on Saturday, they will allow overnight “camping” however there are no facilities, (electric or water hook up). On Saturday they have an event that they expect to run late. Depending on when you arrive, there could be an admission charge (probably $20) to get in Saturday night.
Let’s have a good field of MANDRA cars, the points race is heating up.
