Orient Express Top Street Bike will be run on scheduled Saturdays in 2014.  Racers are expected to be on time for qualifying.  Two Sessions will be run; late arrivals will not have the opportunity to make up a qualifier.  Please pay attention to 87.9 FM or the PA system for all lane calls.

Adding to the excitement, Raceway Park will once again hold its Annual Motorcycle King of the Track Race on Sunday, July 13th.  Open to all Motorcycle and Sled racers who conform to RacewayPark’s category rules in Motorcycle/Sled ET and Top Street Bike, the event will give Motorcycle and Sled ET racers the opportunity to win a NHRA Wally trophy during a King of the Track event at RacewayPark.

Also, the first place competitor in the Orient Express Top Street Bike point’s series, as of August 16th, will join Team Raceway Park at the NHRA Division 1 Summit ET Finals.

This year’s Top Dog Bounty Days will be held on April 19th and July 12th. The Orient Express Top Street Bike Top Dog Bounty Race will pay double payout to any racer that beats a “Top Dog” or remains a “Top Dog”.  This race is open to all Top Street Bike racers.  The winners of each Top Street Motorcycle event are considered the “Top Dogs”.  If you beat a “Top Dog” in the first round, you are now the “Top Dog”.  If you are a “Top Dog” and make it to the money rounds, the semi finals, your payout will be doubled.  The title of “Top Dog” does not carry over past the first person that beats a “Top Dog”.  In other words, if the person who beats a “Top Dog” loses, that winner is not a “Top Dog”.
