Halloween Classic8 Days to Party! Camp! Race! And Have Fun! Oh by the way... Did We Say The Party Lasts An Entire Week?
You've gotta be here...October 19 - 26!
Every day a Special Event Takes Place during the Quick Fuel Technologies Halloween Classic…The Classic is more than just a big race!
Start your Engines Sunday, October 19th. This is the race that kicks off the last hurrah of the racing season. All Racers wanting to arrive on this day MUST BE PRE-ENTERED!!! All gates will open 8am! Enter through the gate you want to pit on! Time trials start at 9:00 a.m. and eliminations will begin at 2:00 p.m.
Monday, October 20th: Domino's Pizza 'Welcome Party' presented by Nobil's Sports & Trophies and Gardner’s Super Value! No racing on this day! We just kick back, relax and reflect on the 2014 season while eating pizza and standing around a campfire.
The ever-popular Candy Corn Hole Tournament will be underway in the background. Spaces are limited to 16 teams of two. (Sign up will begin once the Halloween Classic brochures go in the mail! Stay tuned!) Last year’s winning team was Jodi & Nathan Burns (Fredericktown, OH). Who will challenge their title?
FUN racing begins Tuesday Night, October 21st, the extremely popular General RV Center Mean Motorhome race! This is one race you can’t miss. It is unlike any other you’ll see all week. Only Class A and Class C motorhomes are eligible to compete, no exceptions! Normally passengers are not permitted to ride along in race vehicles, but for this race, passengers are MANDATORY! Time Trials begin at 5:30 p.m. and we go racing at 6:00 p.m. 2013 Class C winner was repeat winner AJ Buchanan, Vickery, OH and Class A winner was repeat winner Matt Dadas, Vermilion OH.
Wednesday October 22nd, the road leading towards the crowning of the 2014 Overall Classic Gremlin Grand Champion begins at 8:00 a.m. Each class will receive one time run then “all run” RJS Racing Equipment No Box Gambler’s Race will start at Noon, followed by Callies Box Gambler’s Race, again an all run field.
Are you funny? Do you like to write and tell jokes? Do you aspire to be a comedian? We’ll give you an opportunity to try during the Mickey Thompson “Token Joke Day”, Thursday October 23rd! All you need to do is submit your best joke, (written on paper) and bring to race control during the course of the day on Thursday. Either you or one of our Announcers can or will read your joke(s). To protect delicate psyches, we reserve the right to edit and or otherwise sensor “crass” submissions! Our panel of judges will review all entries to determine this year’s winner. The winner will receive a set of Mickey Thompson Rear Slicks! 2013 Winner Larry Hurst, Norwalk OH.
Friday October 24th is Trick Flow Specialties “Limerick Day”, which allows all of our creative writers to craft a poem that involves drag racing! The poem must follow the standard limerick style and cannot be longer than 5 lines. All entries must be submitted to race control by end of the day in order to be read over the PA and to be considered a candidate. The overall winner will receive one Trick Flow Track Heat Carburetor, (made exclusively by Quick Fuel for Trick Flow.) Our 2013 Winner was Mark & Katie Moreland, Pioneer OH.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without carved pumpkins, so we’re having a Pumpkin Carving party in the Fellowship Tent from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. We will supply the pumpkins; you bring the utensils and the creativity! All the carved pumpkins will be used to decorate the park on Saturday! You are welcome to take your creation home with you on Sunday!
Trick Flow Specialties “Fright Night”, the largest Drag Racing Halloween Party in the world, begins when the sun rises on Saturday October 25th! Everyone is in costume; the facility and pit areas will be decorated with a Halloween theme. It’s not only a full day of racing, as we will begin first round of eliminations, there will be a lot of partying going on as well!
Hayrides for kids of all ages will begin at 1:00 p.m. Rides will leave from the Fellowship Tent. Thermo-Tech sponsors the Kid’s Halloween Costume Contest, presented by Kelley’s Island Venture Resort at 5:00 p.m. All kids will receive a participant ribbon for just dressing up. Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 in five different categories (prettiest, scariest, most original, cutest and hand made), between two age groups (1-6 and 7+).
During the week, racers will begin designing, building and decorating their race rigs and pit areas in a theme they hope will capture the judges attention so they can take home a Classic Gremlin Trophy. Judging of pit areas and race rigs will take place Saturday late afternoon between 5 and 8 p.m. All entries must be registered in guest services (on the side the display is pitted on) by Saturday at 3 p.m., so our judges do not overlook your area! 2013 Best Decorated Pit Area was awarded to The Beall Family, North Canton, OH, "Beall's Butcher Shop"; Best Decorated Rig went to Rollie Anderson & Brain Hoover, New London OH, "Zombie Trailer of Terror".
The highlight of the day for the kids arrives at 7 p.m. when all motorized traffic comes to a screeching halt as the ‘witching hour’ begins. For one hour, kids of all ages can visit over 1,000 homes for ‘trick or treating’. Kids you are going to need pillowcases and wagons to carry all the candy you can collect! You’ll even get to explore haunted trailers and pit areas along the way!
But what about the Big Kids…don’t worry we didn’t forget you. The Gordon Food Service “Adult Witching Hour” which includes an adult costume contest and a free dinner begins at 8 p.m. The overall winner in each of the following categories: funniest, most original, scariest and sexiest, will also take home a Classic Gremlin.
The fun doesn’t stop there. We go back trackside for the final round of qualifying of the Graphics Inc Signs 'Top Gun Shootout' at 8:30 p.m., followed by the ever popular ‘Trick Flow’ Bumper Draggin’ Air Show, $500 and a Classis Gremlin will be given to the racer who performs the highest wheelie and to the racer who can carry the wheelie the furthest!
Sunday, October 26th is Quick Fuel Technology Survivor’s Day! All classes will run to completion, including Injector Experts Last Chance Race, where the four best losing reaction times from round #1 in each of the four classes will have an opportunity to win $500! After all the class champions have been crowned, each will then race off to see who will be our next Grand Champion! The overall winner will have four prize packages to select from as your reward in addition to the Classic Gremlin!
The 2013 Grand Champion Winner was Quick Time Super Pro racer Jono Gerber, Shreve OH.
