This October show is one of the highlights of the year and all funds raised through entry, raffle, live and silent auction are used to help our veterans and active military in some way. This show is produced through volunteer efforts and the monies raised are committed where foundation support will make a significant difference. The Volunteers for Veterans Foundation provides emergency financial assistance to veterans and active military personal. We help with rent, utilities, food and gas.

The season concludes where it began with an event traditionally laced with drama. The historic racetrack typically enjoys seasonably cool temperatures that translate into perfect racing conditions and a spectacular, no-holds-barred battle for the prestigious NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world championships. It’s a good bet that the Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycle world titles will still be in doubt at the beginning of the season’s final day.
2012 Recap: Antron Brown (Top Fuel) and Jack Beckman (Funny Car) raced to their first NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world championships. Brown suffered a heartbreaking loss in the opening round and had to wait until Brandon Bernstein upset Tony Schumacher in a thrilling final round to be crowned the champion. Beckman learned his fate one round earlier when Ron Capps lost in front of him in the semifinal round. Cruz Pedregon won the Funny Car title and, like Bernstein, became the 10th different winner in his category in 2012. Allen Johnson (Pro Stock) clinched the title by qualifying and earned his seventh win of the year. Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also clinched during qualifying and later lost in the final round to teammate Andrew Hines.
How to Get There: The track is about 25 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. From Interstate 10 east, exit Fairplex Drive or White Avenue and go north; follow signs to Fairplex. From I-10 west, exit Fairplex Drive and go north. The track is about one mile north of the interstate. Arrow Highway provides access from the north.

As the next-to-last event that will decide the season’s NHRA Mello Yello world championships, plenty is at stake in Las Vegas at this event. Every run will be important because a slip at this point could be worse than snake eyes at the other Strip’s craps tables. The venue is the same as in the spring, but the weather may be different, making for high drama at an event where previous world champions have been crowned.
2012 Recap: Allen Johnson (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) nearly clinched the respective championships in their categories with victories while the points battles tightened up in Top Fuel and Funny Car. Antron Brown’s early exit gave Spencer Massey and Tony Schumacher the opportunity to chip into his lead in Top Fuel, but it was Bob Vandergriff Jr. who took the win in the final. In Funny Car, Ron Capps defeated Jack Beckman in a final round that would separate them by four points heading into the final event.
How to Get There: From the Las Vegas Strip and downtown, follow Interstate 15 north to Speedway Boulevard (Exit 54). Follow signs to the main parking area.

Maple Grove Raceway has a long history of record performances, including the first side-by-side quarter-mile four-second and 300-mph Top Fuel passes, and the cool October climates continue to offer more of the same. The event is the fourth in four weeks and marks the midpoint of the Countdown to the Championship.
2012 Recap: On a record-breaking weekend during which three national e.t. records and two speed records were set, every category had runs that were among the three quickest of all time. Antron Brown ran the quickest e.t. in NHRA history, a national record 3.701, in the Top Fuel semifinals, but it was rookie Khalid alBalooshi rebounding from a tough season to score his first win. Mike Neff won in Funny Car, V. Gaines was the surprise winner in Pro Stock, and Eddie Krawiec beat teammate Andrew Hines in a Pro Stock Motorcycle final that was completed two weeks later during qualifying at the Las Vegas event.
How to Get There: The track is 10 miles south of Reading and 65 miles west of Philadelphia. From Reading, take Route 176 south to the Green Hills exit, then go south (left) six miles on Route 10 to Alleghenyville Road and turn right, following signs to the raceway.
