MnChallengers Race Day at Rock Falls – Saturday September 10th
WHAT: MnChallengers Race Day at Rock Falls
WHERE: Rock Falls Raceway near Eau Claire
DATE: Saturday September 10th
TIME: 8am – 3pm
DETAILS: Midwest Mopars invited us to join them for a race day at Rock Falls Raceway. While they have cancelled to reschedule for October 29th, this is still great opportunity for members of MnChallengers to meet up and have some fun. Race your Challenger head to head against other members. Or just hang out and cheer for your favorite cars. It doesn’t take much to race. Just make sure to have a helmet that meets requirements. Or borrow one from another club member. Please show your support for MnChallengers by attending this event. Feel free to invite your friends. The more the merrier.
MIDWEST MOPARS: Midwest Mopars have rescheduled their race day for October 29th. MnChallengers are still going on September 10th. We can go to Rock Falls a second time this year with Midwest Mopars but the weather gets pretty shaky in late October.
CRUISE: Sheldon Bryant and Dave Kreiner will be leading the club cruise from the TA Truck Stop in Hudson. The cruise will depart at 8:30am. Rock Falls Raceway is about an hour away from Hudson so this will be a great cruise.

MIDWEST MOPARS NEWSLETTER – FRONT PAGE – AUGUST 2011
For the last couple years several club members have made the pilgrimage to Marion SD to drag race at Thunder Valley Raceways. It is a small drag race track centered in the middle of picturesque farms. There are closer drag race tracks, but the drive and the scenery always made it feel like a small vacation to me. Not to mention the company of my friends in the club. This year we are trying something new. We are going to Rock Falls Raceway in Eau Claire Wisconsin. The drive is much shorter but because of the shorter drive there will be a lot more club members around for racing.
If you have not been drag racing with the club before, or ever, I highly recommend that you come. Not only will several long time Midwest Mopars members be there with their classic muscle cars, but also MN Challengers members with their new LX platform Challengers, and some new MWM members with their late model tuners. It is sure to be a blast for everyone.
Save the date Sept 10.
Racers, make sure to check out all the rules and regulations at the rock falls raceway web site. There are restrictions on what type of helmet can be used. So make sure that your helmet meets their requirements.
If you have any questions about this call Dan Nielson at 763-755-7190.
