Top Street Bike will be run on scheduled Sundays in 2016.  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.

Raceway Park will host its 8th Annual Motorcycle/Snowmobile King of the Track event on Sunday, July 10th.  This event is open to all Motorcycle and Snowmobile racers who conform to Raceway Park’s category rules in Motorcycle/Snowmobile ET and Top Street Motorcycle.  A Wally is up for grabs by the winner of a Run-off between the Bike/Sled ET and Top Street Motorcycle classes!  This event will give Motorcycle and Snowmobile ET racers the opportunity to win a NHRA Wally trophy during this King of the Track day at Raceway Park.  Sponsorship opportunities are available.  Please contact Cheryl Beck at Raceway Park with any questions.

This year’s Top Dog Bounty Days will be held on May 15th and August 7th. The 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”.

1. Open to all street type motorcycles (No drag bikes)
