We are still in negotiations for a couple of other events we look forward to hosting/ co-hosting in 2020 as well we look forward to attending Quebec Grudge Wars’ June 2020 Small Tire Shootout.

The weekend will be capped of with 2 Dial-in car classes, Bikes and Sleds and Jr. Dragster racing.

New for 2020 – we are considering adding the sportsman classes to our points structure; we’ve loads of requests to add a No Time class to our schedule; we are considering adding exhibition classes to a couple of our events.

On the schedule side of things, our focus is to try to secure bigger payouts and draw more entries. So the only way to schedule it properly is to set our goals on having 2 day/ 1 race weekends for all classes! This will ensure that all classes can get finished, payouts made, and awards handed out at each weekend – barring weather!

RPM Magazine Smackdown4 – As always, this event will feature everything for the No Time heads up doorslammer enthusiast as well bring the best of sportsman racing under one roof! Classes at the event will include: Outlaw Extreme, Limited 28s, 235 Outlaws, Street Bike, Street275, Real Street, 8.80 Extreme Bikes, 3 dial-in classes for Autos and Bikes/ Sleds and Jr Dragster racing. 2020 will see the return of CANADA’S FASTEST STREET CAR SHOOTOUT – a we search to find the quickest 1/8mile street car in Canada! Also new and exciting will be the addition of Sunday’s No Clock Small Block Shootout! The schedule for this event will look like previous years with some slight differences. Friday testing will be followed with the regular Friday night TNT. Saturday will feature the complete No Time Heads Up event from start to finish, which the Sportsman classes will begin on Saturday and Sunday, ensuring all classes will be completed and get their proper payouts and awards!


Unfinished Business returns to NYIRP – Lancaster Dragway in August! Get ready for a great weekend of camping and racing as we strive to bring you a show that will top our efforts of 2019. All the same classes with a few surprises we have in store should keep everyone excited as we make press releases over the next few months!


The Fall Small Tire Shootout returns to Sparta… where it all started 8 years ago! 3 classes of No Time heads up racing will fill the day – Big Tire, Small Tire and real Street.

“With GBM Management’s announcement that they will be breaking ground on the STRP re-surface and concrete barrier project early May 2020, we couldnt be more excited to bring heads up class racing back to one of the pioneering facilities of Pro racing in Canada!” – Ian Hill


2020 is looking great, we can’t wait to get back to STRP and NYIRP and hope you will join us! In the meantime, keep watching for more updates as we have them, including our presence at the 2020 Motorama Car Show!
