VALDOSTA, Ga. --
"We had a lot of fun doing this," event coordinator Bobby Bennett said. "Shad Dean and the gang at South Georgia Motorsports Park worked their fingers to the bone providing a great place for the professionals to test. I am honored to have Torco's CompetitionPlus.com aligned with such a professional group."
Shad Dean, track manager, was impressed with the success of the event in its initial hosting of the event.
"It turned out great," Dean said. "I have a feeling this year is going to be even larger. When racers arrived last year, they immediately came up to me and let me know it looked like a national event. That was our goal. We were determined to make this a positive experience for every team that attended."
The traditional format returns for 2007 with professional and top alcohol teams receiving free testing in exchange for participation in a special "Chicago Style" Shootout on Saturday.
The event will be open to any NHRA, IHRA or ADRL teams that wish to participate.
This event is held the weekend before NHRA Gainesville and two weeks before IHRA San Antonio.
Pre-entry for the event will open on Thursday, December 21, 2006.
Defending "Chicago Style" Shootout champions are Allen Johnson (NHRA Pro Stock), Chip Ellis (NHRA PSB), Mick Snyder (TAFC), Josh Hernandez (Pro Modified), Steve Spiess (IHRA Pro Stock), Pat Musi (Pro Street).
