In the upcoming weekend, the High Desert Cruisers will be holding their final drag races of the year at their drag strip located near the Lakeview airport. Time trials for the King of the Track race will begin at 10:00 a.m., with eliminations starting at 1:00 p.m.
All of the day’s races will be bracket-style racing.
In addition to the King of the Track award, the Cruisers will also select the Best Racer of Lake County and hold a Gambler’s race where the winner and second place winner split a pot 60/40.
The three winners from the sportsman, pro, and super pro classes will race for the final King of Track, which entitles the winner to a commemorative hat, jacket, and a pat of the back, according to Cruisers Pres. Phil Elder.
The Gambler’s race is a competition between anyone who has $10.00 for the prize pot and wants to race, with the winner taking sixty percent of the final pot, the second place winner taking the rest.
