16th Annual Greenfield Dragway Bracket Bash…Big Dollar Bracket Event Includes Top Sportsman/Top Dragster, Stock/Superstock Series & Junior Dragster Shootout!

The 16th Annual SUPER SATURDAY BRACKET BASH goes August 24th at Greenfield Dragway. This annual big dollar event continues to draw each year with 162 entries in 2018. Almost $14,000 was paid out last year with pay-outs extending back to the Round of 16! We saw Bill Sheppard take home $3600 for the win in No Box and Josh Goodwin pocket $3200 for his Box victory!

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

Event Hi-Lights:
- Entry fee is $40
- Box and No Box (Delay box/device must be removed from vehicle, this includes adj buttons)
- Open to all race vehicles, including motorcycle and snowmobile
- First round losers can enter the buy-back round for $20
- Buy-back round winners will then merge into Round 2 of the eliminator
- Random pairing until quarterfinals then laddered based-on previous round reaction time
- Bye-runs during random pairing determined by best RT in previous round.
- A competitor can only receive one bye-run during random pairing.
- Double entry permitted (Box and No Box)
- All entry fee and sponsor money is paid-out
- Payouts extend back to round of 16!
- $1000 Junior Dragster Shootout, A and B ladder…NO ENTRY FEE!
- Racer’s & Volunteer appreciation BBQ Saturday evening

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
Estimated 20 buy-backs x $20= $400
Sponsor funds (60% of $6000) = $3600
Total purse in Box = $6400

*Box winner: $2800
* Runner-up: $1200 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:
90 entries x $40= $3600
Estimated 35 buy-backs x $20= $700
Sponsor funds (40% of $6000) = $2400
Total purse in No Box = $6700
*No Box winner: $3010
*Runner-up: $1290 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.
