Real Grandpas Go Drag Racing Especially on Wednesday Street Nights

Andy Assman, Sportsman competitor celebrates a perfect reaction time proving grandpa still has it.

Wednesday night's racing on September 7, 2022 was a bit different. It was the first night of non-points racing with the Sportsman class running on the 1/8 mile instead of the 1/4 in preparation of the upcoming bracket finals where all classes will be run on the 1/8 mile.

With three more weeks left of Wednesday night street races and test and tune, the Sportsman class will continue to run on the 1/8 mile while other classes will be 1/4 mile.

On Wednesday, September 14, the winner of the Sportsman class will represent the class in the King of the Track run off on Sunday, October 9 and on September 21st, special trophies are up for grabs. All nights will host test and tune for all mufflered vehicles with or without slicks.
