Give The Gift of Racing at New England Dragway and Maple Grove Raceway
When I was a contributing columnist for Drag Racer magazine, one of my Bracket Racing 101 columns was all about being an ambassador for our sport. I was reminded of this when I received an email from my friends at New England Dragway about the track's Gold Card, which gives free spectator admission to three of the track's biggest shows. It got me to thinking that it would be great if some of the track's racers would buy some and give them as gifts to their friends who've never experienced our sport before.

Your track might have its own Gold Card or Gift Card program, but here are the details about New England Dragway's in case any of their racers are interested: for $99, the New England Dragway Gold Card gets you three separate New England Dragway Premier Shows: the Night of Fire on July 23, 2016; Jet Cars Under the Stars on August 6, 2016 and New England Dragway's 50th Anniversary Celebration Funny Cars Under the Stars on September 10, 2016. It includes VIP Parking for the 3 Premier Shows, special Grandstand Seating for Gold Card members and guests only, plus $5 off spectator entry for any of the track's other race days (excludes New England Nationals, IFO, and Mass Tuning Shows).

To purchase the New England Dragway Gold Card, visit the on-line store at their website HERE.

On a similar note, Maple Grove Raceway is giving out tickets for free carloads of admission to its Showdown at Sundown on May 28, 2016, featuring the jet funny cars of Hanna Motorsports, Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars, a wheelstander and Top Dragster and Top Sportsman.

Click the image shown at right to go to a full-size coupon that you can print out and take to Maple Grove Raceway for the free carload of admission on May 28, 2016.

Camera must be securely attached to the vehicle with appropriate fasteners. The camera may not be attached with suction cups, wire ties, hose clamps, etc. For any camera mounted externally, all mounting brackets, associated fasteners, hardware, etc. from the camera to the vehicle attachment point must be metal; no plastic or nonmetallic components permitted.

New Design Dragtime News T-Shirts
In addition to publishing The Dragtime News I've been hard at work designing new t-shirts, and I think I came up with a winner. They turned out great, and new for 2014 are women's sizes. These are high-quality, 100% cotton black t-shirts. The men's are Gildan and the women's are Hanes.

All quantities are extremely limited. Men's sizes are M, L, XL, 2XL and 3XL; women's sizes are M, L and XL. More info is on the T-Shirts page.
