Racers flock to Florida for the traditional prelude to the season.
As one of the few places in the United States of America warm enough to go drag racing in January, Bradenton Motorsports park had the privilege of attracting the best radial and Pro Mod teams.
The event dodged weather despite its southern location, resulting in a busy Saturday where qualifying was cut short and eliminations were raced through at a frantic pace to try and beat a wet forecast for Sunday.
Bradenton is a classic racers’ track. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but between the two walls the traction was superb, allowing both radial tire and slick tire cars to run quick times on the eighth mile.
