LOVES PARK, Ill. (Monday, September 14, 2009) -- Competitors will have a unique way of earning a starting position during the 18th annual Bahama Bracket Nationals October 17 and 18 at Rockford Speedway, as they will be able to sing their way to a starting spot. Three drivers from each bracket will have the opportunity to earn one feature starting position per bracket by taking the microphone and belting out their favorite song for the Bud Light Last Blast Race Party crowd following racing action Saturday night at the quarter-mile high banked oval.
Crowd applause will determine which driver not already qualified for the 50 lap Championship Feature will get the nod to start shotgun on the field Sunday afternoon. One driver from each bracket will be awarded a position, those not already qualified for the feature event will have the option to sing based on their qualifying time until all three musical slots are filled in a given bracket.
The Bahama Bracket Nationals follow ten simple rules, placing cars in brackets based on their qualifying speeds and provides all out racing excitement. With $100 bonuses in place for dirt cars, modifieds, trucks, female drivers, a perfect qualifying time of 14.300, track awards, best themed car, best dressed crew, best decorated pit area and more, this event has racecars and drivers from all walks of life providing an atmosphere like no other in motorsports. If you have a racecar, chances are you can have fun.
With nearly 200 dirt and asphalt teams competing in the 2008 version, the Bahama Bracket Nationals will once again offer a Test and Tune Practice Session followed by Open Test Time Trials on Friday October 16 beginning at 5pm. Saturday officially kicks off the 18th annual event with practice at 9:30am, qualifying at 12:30pm with the ever popular Happy Half Hour Qualifying to follow allowing retimes to set the final brackets, racing action gets underway at 6pm. The green flag will wave at noon on Sunday with the Last Chance Races, Fabulous Foo Foo Races and Feature events to be contested.
