PIEDMONT – Racers invaded Piedmont Dragway from as far away as Indiana and Maine for the Summit $40K Super Doorcar Challenge! The pits are full and there’s tons of money up for grabs. The Loose Rocker team is looking forward to a great weekend.
New to the Loose Rocker schedule this year, the Super Doorcar Challenge is a three-day 1/8 mile big money bracket race reserved for doorcars and left hand steer roadsters. Dragsters, altereds, motorcycles, and other “open” vehicles are prohibited.
