NUMIDIA, Pa. -- The long awaited .90 Nationals will finally take place on June 8th & 9th at Numidia Dragway in Numidia, Pa. This event was originally scheduled for August 27th, 2011 but, had to be re-scheduled due to Hurricane Irene barreling up the East Coast and causing flooding situations for most racers and their families at home.

On Friday June 8th Track Owner Bob Dimino & Promoters Rob Keister will offer a FREE Test & Tune from 12 to 4 for all competitors who are entered for the .90 Nationals event. Once the Test & Tune is complete for an additional fee of $75.00 Keister will offer a "Top 32 Shootout" that is open to all .90 competitors that would like to participate. There will be a total of 3 races held on Friday night, 1 for S/C, 1 for S/G & 1 for S/ST. At night's end the winner of the "Shootout" will pocket a cool $1,000 and the runner-up will claim $500.

The Inaugural .90 Nationals will kick off Day #2 festivities on Saturday, June 9th at 9am. All drivers will get 2 time shots before eliminations are set to kick off. There is 2 ways to enter for this event. The first option is to pre-enter before May 6th, 2012 at the rate of $170.00. If you would like to enter after May 6th or at the gate the fee is $190.00. The payouts are based off of 85 entries per class (S/C, S/G. S/ST) and the winner will take home $5,000 and the runner-up will take home $2,000 and paybacks will reach all the way back to the 3rd round. It is also available to enter into more than 1 class at the .90 Nationals but, we will not accept double entries & no buybacks will be offered.

Once the dust has cleared and the checks have been handed out all racers & crew are welcomed to attend a FREE racer BBQ that will be put on by Keister and Super Gas Racers George Donhauser & Uncle Buck. On Sunday, the event wraps up with Numidia Dragway's weekly Summit Racing Equipment Bracket Race. This event is a $65.00 entry fee with a chance to win over $2,500 in Super Pro & $1,500 in Pro as long as there is over 85 Cars entered for this event.

Anyone who wishes to drive up and park following the NHRA Supernationals on June 2nd&3rd will be allowed to leave their rigs at the track for the following weekend to save on Gas & Travel. On Thursday June 7th the gates will open for parking at 5pm and will remain open till 10pm. Friday the gates will re-open at 8am with the FREE test and tune starting at 12 till 4pm. Gates will remain open till 10pm on Friday. On Saturday, the gates will once again open at 8am with the main event kicking off with 2 time trials at 9:00AM.
