    Default GDRA Race #7 Saturday, August 25th, 2012 --- 6.90, 7.80, 8.60, & 9.50 classes!!!



    GDRA Race #7 Presented by Glasstek, Harrison Metals, Midwest Racing Converters, and Automotive Engine Specialties (AES).

    With the season well into the back end of its schedule, we are fastly approaching Race #7 which is going to take place at Great Lakes Dragaway on Saturday, August 25th. All four classes of GDRA heads up, index styled, door to door racing will be on track for this event with several thousands of dollars up for grabs. Deadline for entry to this event will be Midnight Saturday, August 18th, 2012 so please be sure to get your entry forms filled out and submit them with your Buy-in's no later than that date. For those still attempting to get their required events logged prior to the All-In Showdown, time is getting tight. You must have competed in 5 of the regular season events (4 for the 9.50 class) to be invited to the all in showdown. Let me remind you, the All-In Showdown last season was worth over $10,000 dollars in cash and prizes so this is not a race you wanna be sitting on the sidelines of. After this event there is only 1 more chance prior to the Showdown so don't end up bust and out of luck.

    On a sadder note, the competitors, crews, and GDRA staff will be competing with heavy hearts that weekend in the wake of the passing of Great Lakes Dragaway founder, International Drag Racing Hall of Famer, and promoter extraordinaire, Broadway Bob Metzler. Moving forward with Broadway weighing heavy on our minds the show must go on and we all know Bob wouldn't want it any other way. We will all miss this legend as he has done so much for the sport of drag racing and his warmth and caring for all the racers and fans lives on in each and every one of us. We hope that his legend will inspire the lives of everyone that ever had the pleasure of meeting him. God Speed old friend... we love you and will miss you.

    We would like to say thank you to the following for their support and belief in the GDRA. Our Official Marketing Partners: Powermaster Performance, ARP Racing Products, CoolRidesOnline.net, Device Tech Inc, Homer Tree Service, and Valvoline. Our Associate Marketing Partners: Undercover Innovations, Union of Roofers, Waterproofers, and Allied Workers, Automotive Engine Specialties (AES), Harrison Metals, Glasstek Fiberglass, Automatic Transmission Designs (ATD), Midwest Convertors, D.

    Im looking forward to some great drag racing, no matter who gets put next to me. The car should be even deadlier than usual, and I am psyched and ready to put people on the trailer.
    LRE cars will qualify #1 and #2 this weekend, and one of them will win the race!
