New this year at Dragfest – A Quick 16 Division!
QUICK 16 is following the same rules that the Super Pro category uses, no delay boxes or electronically controlled throttle stops are allowed.
On Friday the last session of Super Pro will be the first session of qualifying for the QUICK 16.
At the end of the day Friday results of this run will be posted at the Tech Shack.
On Saturday there will be two more chances to qualify in Super Pro to move up, or get into the field which would consist of 16 cars plus 2 alternatives.
Qualifying runs for the Quick 16 are the first time trial on Friday and the second and third time trial on Saturday
The results for Saturdays time trials will be posted (after each run if possible) in the Tech Shack.
On Sunday there will be one more final time trial to determine the final ladder. The top 16qualify, the alternatives move back to Super Pro. The time trial they did for the Quick 16 will be considered their time for the finals .
In case of rain the ladder will be built on the way you qualify.  
Basically we're pulling the fastest super pro cars out to have a run off against each other on a sportsman ladder, where #1 qualifier runs against #9 and so on until only 2 cars remain for the finals, which will run off for 1st and 2nd place finishers. What you dial on your car is up to you.
Over its 17 year history, the race has been very successful; allowing Dragfest to support local service clubs and charities with local donations now exceeding $275,000.00!
Major recipients include the Camp Quality (for kids with cancer), Thunder Bay Regional Hospital, Terrace Bay McCausland Hospital, local fire departments, ambulances, food bank, and animal shelters.
Their objective, conditions permitting, is to continue this philosophy, of helping those who help others in our region.
