After world championships are decided, the American Drag Racing League (ADRL) will conclude its highly anticipated race weekend at Texas Motorplex with its annual Racer Appreciation and Awards Gala on October 21 in the Champion’s Club.
Serving as a fitting finish to what has already been a remarkable 2012 season, the gala will end a weekend that includes the ADRL World Finals VIII presented by CarSafe, which takes place October 19-20 at Texas Motorplex.
The casual dress event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Champion’s Club at Texas Motorplex. Tickets are $25 and everyone must purchase a ticket to attend.
ADRL World Championship trophies will be presented to the 2012 class champions in a special ceremony.
Additionally, a number of other special prizes will also be awarded at the event.
Noted drag racing historian and ADRL television reporter Bret Kepner will serve as Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Gala.
The doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the celebration begins at 10 a.m. with an upscale breakfast brunch, with the awards ceremony to follow. There will be a cash bar as well. To purchase tickets, contact the ADRL offices at 855/277-ADRL (2375).
Tickets can be purchased by check, credit card or money order, but must be purchased in advance and no later than 5 p.m. CST on October 15 or until the event sells out.
Tickets will also be available for purchase at the ADRL Summit Racing Equipment registration trailer during the upcoming Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags VI presented by Mickey Thompson, which takes place September 28-29 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
