Weather Holds Off Just Long Enough for an Exciting PINKS All Out Qualifier


May 6, 2009


In spite of a 70% chance of rain in the forecast, over 260 racers showed up for the PINKS All Out Qualifier on Saturday, May 2nd. Their diligence was greatly rewarded with participation in one of the most exciting racer events ever at MIR! We even did a post on our website and an update on Dragline indicating that we would not be rescheduling the event due to rain. We further added that all 80 spots would be awarded that weekend, even if it required a “Paper, Rock, Scissors” contest!

The MIR staff pushed the event with all they had, getting the event down to winners in each class just as the rains came. All 80 spots were officially awarded, it was truly a fun and exciting event. The long distance award was given to a driver from Iowa who traveled of over 1,200 miles to participate. The oldest driver award was given to a competitor who was 71 years old. The winner of the wheelstand contest was on the bumper and crossing lanes – absolutely amazing! The poker hand was won with a Royal Straight Flush. There were two scavenger hunts for some really silly, off-the-wall items; and they were both won in just a matter of minutes with racers sprinting to the tower.

The racing was intense all day, with spots even being won during time trials. Congratulations to all of those that left with a Golden Ticket to the big show and a special thanks to everyone who attended the event!
