--------------------

Fortunately all pro racing has been on schedule the past two days, but sportsman racing is behind schedule so we're trying to make up for that this morning. Sportsman racing began early this morning, when it would normally not begin until after pro eliminations at 11:00 am, but this is the only way to fit the sportsman rounds. This is changing our pre-race ceremony schedule but please understand this is the only way to accommodate hundreds of sportsman racers who have worked very hard to get here.

The pre-race concert scheduled at 9:00 am with Phil Dirt and the Dozers was moved to the Manufacturer's Midway in Nitro Alley, near the Al-Anabi pit area on the Budweiser (east) side. Pre-race driver introductions will not be held at 10:00 on the track as previously scheduled. A shortened pre-race ceremony will begin approximately 10:30 or 10:45. We recommend that you plan to be in your seats at 10:30.

The first round of professional eliminations will be at 11:00 am as normal and will continue through the afternoon as originally scheduled. Remember as you're driving to the track you will always turn right into your parking lot: driving east on State Route 18 away from the city of Norwalk you'll turn right into Linder's Lot which is on the south side of 18; if you're driving west on 18 you'll turn right into Wilson's Lot which is on the north side of 18 (same side as the track).

Sunday Schedule:
8:00 am...first rounds of Super Gas, Top Dragster
9:00 am...first rounds of Pro Modified and Top Sportsman.
9:30 am...first rounds Competition, Super Comp, Super Stock and Super Gas.
Approximately 10:30 am...shortened Opening Ceremonies and national anthem.
11:00 am...first rounds of pro eliminations, beginning with Top Fuel, then Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle, followed by the first round of eliminations of Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car.

Eliminations will continue through the afternoon and will be completed approximately 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm, followed by the Winner's Circle. Elimination rounds in Sportsman racing will continue after the pro Winner's Circle ceremonies. The public is invited to attend the Winner's Circle ceremony and watch the champions receive their limited edition ice cream scoop trophies and the traditional "Wally" trophies.
