DIALED IN
4.50 racers have stepped up and they put on a great show for us ,” Joyce says . “ It ’ s a points series , with Chad Tilley winning his first championship in that division in 2021 . Nick Cline won it the previous two years . It ’ s gotten really competitive recently with round after round won by thousands of a second !”
While the Mad Dawg competitors run off a 4.50 index , the 4 & 5 Second Shootout is another fast bracket series that Farmington pioneered decades ago , and will hold events throughout the year to cater to the area ’ s fastest dial-in racers .
As expected , the Classic Gear Jammers organization will also be making multiple stops at Farmington in 2022 . The Clemmons Concrete Stick Shift Nationals in June promises to be the most anticipated yet , with $ 10k being awarded to the winner . Later that same month , the Southeast Gassers will return to Farmington after making a successful showing in 2021 .
“ We had the Southeast Gassers here last year for the first time and they drew a great crowd and put on a good show , so we ’ re excited to have them back this year ,” says Joyce .
Volkswagen enthusiasts are also geared up for the spring and fall meets when the South Eastern
Volkswagen Association returns to Farmington in May and October .
Also in October , Farmington will host their annual Jr . Dragster Shootout , which is always a heavily attended meet for the future stars of the sport .
Racing continues right on through November with All-Harley World Shootout , followed by a pair of $ 5k-to-win Footbrake races , as well as the traditional Thanksgiving $ 10k Moneyfest .
The season will wind down in December with the annual Dollar Days Flea Market and test and tune , with a free race scheduled to close out 2022 . DI
