What a season so far, here it is June 19th and we are just completing our 2nd Summit ET Series points race and the first one to run ¼ mile due to all of the wet Spring weather. Hopefully now that summer starts June 21st we can get into a dry pattern and get some racing action in. Anyways today we hosted the Vivian’s Vision for a Cure Jr. Dragster race as well as the rescheduled Street Showdown, we had great weather and here are the results.
