MOHNTON, Pa. - The first two-day weekend of the still-new 2014 season will take place on Saturday and Sunday at Maple Grove Raceway.

Saturday marks the first points race of the 2014 season for the Sunoco Money Trail. Local bracket racers will race for cash, trophies and points.

Defending champions include: Lanny Werley (Super Pro), Brock Moshier (Pro), Paul Werner (Street), Cory Steubner (Top Bike) and Vincent Branca (UTI Jr. Dragster).

Last year, more than $30,000 in cash, trophies and contingency awards was distributed at the annual MGR banquet.

MGR will host its annual Universal Technical Institute High School Challenge on Sunday. Students will drag race in street-legal cars, competing for bragging rights against other area high schools. The Challenge also offers aspiring young mechanics and racers an opportunity to showcase what they've learned in automotive classrooms in front of their peers. Also on the schedule is a high school alumni race: All past participants are welcome to compete in the special Alumni Eliminator. The overall winner on April 27 will represent Maple Grove Raceway at the NHRA Northeast Division Summit Racing Series E.T. Final in September.

Gates will open at 8 a.m. with time trials at 9:30 a.m.

Race entry is $25 per student. Adult spectator admission is $15, young adults (ages 13-15) are $10 and kids 12 and under are free.

Last year, York Tech student Brandon Witmeyer of Thomasville, Pa., defeated Jeremy Bartman of Daniel Boone High School in the final.

Now in its 52nd year of operation, historic Maple Grove Raceway is recognized as a leading facility in the sport of NHRA-sanctioned drag racing. MGR will present the Spring Bracket Nationals on May 3-4. The NHRA Nationals, MGR's annual NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series national event, will take place on Oct. 2-5.
