13TH ANNUAL GREENFIELD BRACKET BASH 2016 AUGUST 20th!!

For a $40 entry fee you can win over $4000! We do it every year...Its BRACKET BASH time folks!

The 13th Annual SUPER SATURDAY BRACKET BASH goes August 20th at Greenfield Dragway. With guaranteed pay-outs back to the quarter-finals there are plenty of opportunities to claim your share of the cash. In 2015 extremely high humidity and area lightening forced an event stoppage allowing 10 Box cars to split a $6360 purse while the remaining No Box competitors shared $6400.

We have been watching the weather and it looks like it is improving for the weekend. So we are going to go racing for the weekend.

See you all at the track.

Setup will begin at 6 pm tonight for those that can make it to the track. Many hands makes for light work for everybody.
