On the Friday night Test & Tunes before each of the two Autofab Raider ET Challenge events at MIR, we will be running special 1/8 mile High-Roller Gamblers races. The High-Roller Races will all be over 87% payback and will feature 16-car fields. If one field fills up, another one will be started. In Top ET, we will have both a $200 to enter $2,800 to win and a $100 to enter $1,400 to win races. In Mod ET, it will be $50 to enter with $700 to win. Junior Dragster will be $35 to enter with $500 to win. All racers must purchase their $20 Test & Tune tech card for the evening. The High-Rollers entry fees will be collected in the tower. Gamblers races start at 9pm and all time runs will be made during the regular Test & Tune rotation. There will be no re-entry and the same car cannot be entered into more than one race.

Event Description

Join the excitement of the Autofab Race Cars Raider ET Challenge Series (open to all racers), and you could win a major sponsorship for your bracket car! Come get your piece of the $150,000 pie in season payouts and awards.

The 10th annual Autofab Race Cars Raider ET Challenge returns in 2013 as the most successful and prestigious ET series in the region. Plenty of cash, prizes and awards await the points champion in Top ET, Mod ET and Junior Dragster in this 8-race, all 1/8 mile series between Maryland Int’l Raceway, Virginia Motorsports Park and Richmond Dragway.

MIR, VMP and RD are proud to offer this exciting 1/8 mile series, and an additional $5,000 has once again been committed to the points fund to pay back under the champions! The 8-races include a points program that rewards each of the overall champions in Top ET, Mod ET, and Junior Dragster with a major sponsorship for their bracket car in 2014. These sponsorships include tires, fuel, oil, converters, gear sets, weather stations... the list just goes on and on!

Additionally, all three class champions will receive FREE car and driver entry for the ENTIRE 8-RACE SERIES in 2014! If you thought it couldn’t get any better than that, how about a FREE reserved parking spot to accommodate your FREE entry – and a FREE CORPORATE SUITE at each track for one weekend?
