2013 Drag Schedule Now Posted.

Things are taking shape now for our 2013 Drag Season as the 2013 schedule has now been released. New in 2013 is our Saturday Shootout Points Championship. There are 7  dates, and all of these will be dial in competitions. The Championship will be based on your best 5 nights. This means that if you compete in all 7 you will be able to drop 2 of your worst nights, scoring your best 5. If you only make 5, all 5 will count for your final point totals. We are looking at having 4 classes - Juniors, Street Car, Bikes and an Open Class ( Semi and Super Pro )with no delay box use. If we can get enough cars registered for each class, we will run all of them in the series. Registration Fees and Payouts are under review now and will ultimately be decided based on car count. More cars equals more money.

We will be announcing our Drag Meeting in the next week or so, so you can have a say in how we do this. Registration Forms will be made available that night.Higher entry fee with higher payouts or lower entry fee with lower payouts. We would like to keep the costs to race reasonable so everyone can compete on a limited race budget. Buy backs at this point will be limited to only a 1st round loss. Please make sure that you attend this Drag meeting as everything will be on the table and open for discussion.

We are looking at doing a number of things to the track this year to improve the existing facility. We have come a long way in one year and we will continue to make CCS better every year. We hope to make Capital City Dragway your Drag Strip destination for good times with good people.

Stay tuned for more Drag Strip News.

SFL Metal Works Brings Back its "Metal" in 2013

SFL Metal Works Brings Back its "Metal" in 2013
Capital City Speedway is pleased to announce that SFL Metal Works will be back in 2013 as the Four for Fun Title Sponsor. Julio Pasinetti, the owner of SFL, has been a long time supporter, driver and builder of CCS and we are very happy to see him back with us again in 2013.

SFL Metal Works is a metal fabrication facility where Julio can make you just about anything you are looking for. If it has to do with metal and welding, he is your man. I have used SFL Metal Works in the past and I can vouch for the quality of work that SFL puts out.

SFL Metal Works also is your place, if you are looking for race car fabrication work done. Julio can install that roll cage for you, along with any chassis work you need done.

New this year for SFL Metal Works is chassis set ups. One of the keys in winning at CCS, or any track for that matter, is the car has to be set up right. Julio has been doing chassis set ups for many years. I didn't want to say for how long because it is a really long time. Julio has now
opened his doors for Racers who are looking to gain an edge on their competition by having their cars set up the right way. Just ask last year's mini stock champion Chris MacDonald. Chris will attest he could not have done it without the help of SFL Metal Works and Julio. Julio worked on that car to make it a front running car, as well as the # 56 Thunder Car of Jessica Pasinetti and the # 7 Thunder of Greg Ogilvie. Now you can have that winning set up for your Four for Fun car, your Mini Stock car or your Thunder Car. Having the right set up is crucial to being competitive and even more if you are looking to win races.

Do you want to win, or be more competitive, then you need to put the final piece in you race puzzle and give Julio a call.

Rumour has it that we may see another Thunder Car come out of that shop for next year. Stay tuned.

SFL Metal Works is located at 20 Bexley Place in Bells Corners. Julio can be reached at 613-726-0990
