The 15th Annual SUPER SATURDAY BRACKET BASH goes August 11th at Greenfield Dragway. This annual big dollar event grows each year with 169 competitors entered in 2017. Over $15,000 was paid out last year with pay-outs extending back to the Round of 16!

Here are the Super Saturday specifics and payout structure examples (keeping in mind the # of entries will change the purse for the winner and runner-up. Semi, quarter and round of 16 payouts are set amounts).

Pay-out Structure:
In both classes’ semi-final losers win $400, quarter-final losers get $200 and round of 16 losers earn $100 each. These are set amounts regardless of car count. The remaining funds are split with 70% to the winner and 30% to the runner-up in each class. Also, the sponsorship money is split 60/40 between Box and No Box.

Here are two examples based on the traditional # of entries for this race:

Box Class with 60 entries:
 60 entries x $40= $2400
 Sponsor funds (60% of $7500) = $4500
 Total purse in Box = $6900

*Box winner: $3150
 * Runner-up: $1350 Semi-final finish: $400 Quarter-final finish: $200 Round of 16 (or less) finish: $100 * Will vary based on # of entries

No Box Class with 100 entries:
 100 entries x $40= $4000
 Sponsor funds (40% of $8000) = $3000
 Total purse in No Box = $7000

*No Box winner: $3220
 *Runner-up: $1380 Semi-final losers: $400 Quarter-final losers: $200 Round of 16 (or less) losers: $100 *Will vary based on # of entries

Last week we announced that we will be holding our annual meeting, March 29th at the Bridgewater Legion. How is this relevant you ask? If you’re already a member of the Nova Scotia Drag Racers Association your input is important! If you’re not already a member, you should be! This goes for racers and dedicated fans alike!

There are a few reasons why being a member of our association is beneficial to you and the organization both. In previous years it was optional for racers to be members of the NSDRA and race in the Greenfield Dragway point’s series, as of our last general meeting it was voted that any drivers racing for points would also be required to be a member of the NSDRA. What does this mean for racers, simple, $20 will get you a year membership and for an additional $10 you will be entered into the 2018 points series! What about those interested in supporting the association by becoming a member, but do not race, it will be only $20 for a year membership!

The annual meeting of the NSDRA will be held at the Bridgewater Legion (78 Churchill Street) on March 29, 2018. The meeting will begin at 7:30 pm.

Purpose of the meeting will be;

1) To finalize plans for the 2018 season.

2) Election of Directors.

Members wishing to pay their 2018 memberships will be able to do so before the meeting starts. New members wishing to join may do so at the same time. People will be available starting at 7:00 pm for those wishing to pay their dues.

Please spread the word around about the meeting.

NSDRA is happy to announce the details for the fifth and final event at Greenfield Dragway set for September 22-24. This has been a tough season for all tracks around the Maritimes this summer so we are anxious to end our season on a high note. Hi-lights for the upcoming race include extended time trials on Friday, the ADRA Team race AND the Annual Bracket Bash on Saturday and then the ADRA & Greenfield points race on Sunday. It’s a full slate of racing action and a great way to close out the season!

Listed below are some changes at Greenfield Dragway for the 2017 Season.

1) Rulebook – All Maritime tracks will be following the NHRA rulebook going forward.

2) Engine Containment Devices – All Maritime tracks will follow the rules outlined in the NHRA rulebook with regards to Engine Containment Devices. All vehicles running an ET of 7.49 or quicker (1/4 mile), Top Sportsman, Top Dragster and all the .90 classes are required to use an engine containment device. The track operators recommend and promote their use in all other applications.

3) Crosstalk – All Maritime tracks will be implementing crosstalk at any track that is capable for the SuperPro and Electronics classes. Greenfield Dragway can run the crosstalk option. More information on crosstalk and how it works will be posted in the near future.

4) Dial-In Marker – All Maritime tracks are making it mandatory that Dial-In makers shall be white in colour and have a width of 1 inch. The use of coloured/chisel tip glass markers is prohibited.

a) allow riders 14 years and older to use maximum 300cc 4stroke motorcycles in the junior class with a limit of 8.90 at 80mph with a minimum of two years’ experience.

b) Concern was brought up about new racers coming to the track and it was discussed that if they had prior experience and at the discretion of bike/sled reps or tech operators they could run, practice runs may be required to assess the riders abilities.

6) New Drivers/Drivers Moving to Faster Classes -- All Maritime tracks will be adopting the following guidelines for any new drivers or those transitioning to fasters ET’s that will be running 11.90 in the 1/4 (8.00 in the 1/8) or quicker for the first time must complete a track orientation and driving assessment before competing. This will be at the tracks discretion.

There will be a work party in Greenfield at the drag strip on the 30 of April at 8:00 am. All welcome, see you there. Chores to be done, scrape rubber off the starting line, install timing system cables and just generally get the place ready for the 1st race.
