Opening day this Saturday!


 We are ready to unwrap the christmas tree and get a start on the 2015 season! Opening day is this Saturday, April 4, with a test and tune. Gates open at 1pm, racing goes from 2pm-8pm. Please be sure to check here on the website and Facebook to make sure we are open, and if you haven't already, sign up for the text alerts:

In bracket racing news, Pittsburgh Raceway Park is very pleased to announce that Latrobe Auto Group is now the Modified class sponsor! Located at 1595 Mission Road in Latrobe, a dealership for both Chevy and Ford, as well as pre-owned cars and trucks, Latrobe Auto Group has the sales, servicing, parts, and even financing you need! Visit them online at http://www.latrobeautogroup.com/

And in Top class, the winner's purse has been increased to $1000!

Tech rule additions and chassis certification information


Attention all racers, here are some additions to the IHRA tech rules that everyone needs to be aware of for the 2015 season:

Helmets: All classes must have Snell 2000 or newer. Snell 95 helmets ARE NOT PERMITTED IN ANY ET BRACKET CLASS.

Headers: Must have 4 welded tabs on collectors and 4 tabs on primary tubes -  OR - A tethering device may be made from minimum 1/8” steel cable and T bolt clamps or muffler clamps with locking fasteners

Chassis certification is required if you are quicker than 9.00 seconds in the ¼ mile (6.00 second in the 1/8th mile), or faster than 150mph.
There will be chassis certification at PRP on Saturday, April 11th; you must reserve a spot on the schedule. Cash only, $75 Sportsman (3 year tag, 7.50 cert), $100 Pro (2 year tag, 6.00 cert).
The owner or driver must be present to sign paperwork. Appointments are every 15 minutes; contact tech@pittsburghracewaypark.com  to schedule.

Note: Engine diapers are eventually going to be mandatory on all race only cars (street driven cars will be exempt from the requirement). PRP is currently working with a company to obtain a bulk order, which would enable the diapers to be offered to racer at a discounted price for a limited time. The number one reason for them is racer safety, as we have all seen what can happen when fluids get under the tires. It will also help us minimize down time in the program, which benefits racers and fans. No one likes to watch the Oil Dry Nationals!

Race fuels note: If you need your own drum of fuel for the start of the season, email Greg Miller - miller@pittsburghracewaypark.com - by Friday, March 27

Update on our Fund Drive


March 9 update - We just wanted to give an update on the fundraising for the Thinking of Nikki Foundation. Mike's Auto Body Top Class champion Mark Brewer has given it a big boost. He donated half of his championship money to the Foundation, and it, coupled with the continued generosity of so many people, has pushed the total to $3,000! Thank you to everyone for your support! And, with this total, it means Chuck Turocy will shave his beard all the way off, for the first time in over a decade, Matt Cadamore will be shaving his beard off, and Bob Brehm will shave his goatee off at the bracket finals!

Feb 19 update - Check out the PRP Facebook page for the before and after shots of Bill Turk, Mike Barnyk, and Matt Brehm getting bushwhacked, er, their haircuts done up in the short style of track manager Greg Miller. Kudos to those guys for being great sports and helping the fund drive. Donations are around the $1200 mark now, not far from the $1500 needed to knock Chuck Turocy's longtime beard down to a goatee, and $2000 will put him back to a babyface. Thank you to all who have donated to the Thinking of Nikki Foundation. Please click the link to the right to visit the website if you are not familiar with Nikki's story, and see why this is such an important cause to the PRP family.
