Qualifying Change for May Aeroquip Heads Up Event


Friday, May 3rd is a GO for racing.

We are making a change to the program to ensure we finish before it gets too cold. There will only be two qualifying sessions for all classes. We will move into eliminations after qualifying.

We hope to see eliminations start by around 6 PM with this change.

We will do our best to keep the program moving quickly, however, we will still take our usual prep times to give you the best racing surface that we can. The best way to help us move the program along is to come to the lanes when we call you and suit up when you know your class is coming up.

See you all tomorrow for a day of wicked fast racing!

The Wait Is Over: Aeroquip Heads Up Friday, May 3rd

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Months of frigid cold and endless snow has led to this, the first Aeroquip Heads Up Race of the season! As much as drag racing fans don’t like winter, it gives these race teams a chance to work on their programs and come back faster, better, and stronger.  

To make this May event even better than ever, we now have Total Venue Concepts coming in to prep the track, and for every Heads Up race this year. If you weren’t sure if you should be here, I’m telling you that you will be MISSING OUT if you aren’t. These cars are going to be wicked fast.  

The jaw dropping speeds of Mechanical Heating & Cooling Run What Ya Brung cars. The Earth-shaking Ground Control Property Services Outlaw 10.5 cars, well… and truck. The wheels up racing in VP Racing Fuels Drag Radial. Liberty’s Gears All Motor who show just how fast you can go without a power adder, SPOILER ALERT: it’s unbelievably fast. The so close you can hardly call it racing of Holbrook Racing Outlaw 632. The zip of the OSDRA/Mott Powersports Sled classes. The no room for error Amsoil Open Comp field. The get up and go of the Diamond Pistons Motor City Muscle Challenge class.

The First Friday Aeroquip Heads Up program brings racers in from all over region. If you want to prove you’re fast, this is where you need to be. If you want to see some of the fastest cars around go head to head, this is where you need to be. If you like to be bored, this isn’t the race for you.
