Final Call Promotions returns to Wabash Valley Dragway for their final race of the season the 2nd Annual Moser Engineering Door Car Duel on August 25-27, 2023.
TERRE HAUTE, IN – The final stop on the Final Call Promotions 2023 schedule will be the Annual Final Call Promotions Moser Engineering Door Car Duel at Wabash Valley Dragway on August 25-27, 2023. You can expect three days of racing that will be open to Box, No-Box, and Junior Dragster racers, but as the name suggests, you must leave the full-size dragsters at home. The Door Car Duel gives door cars and left hand steer roadsters all the spotlight as the event is live-streamed on MotorManiaTV, courtesy of Laris Motorsports Insurance.
Get all of the details below!
Friday Test n’ Tune & FuelTech Gamblers Race
Racers get the opportunity to warm up the racetrack beginning on Friday with the $30 Test n’ Tune session from 12-4pm. In addition, there will also be a FuelTech $2,000-to-win Gamblers Race that will have a $80 entry fee and a $40 re-entry. Drivers in the Gamblers Race will receive one time trial at 5pm, followed by first round of eliminations. Double entries will be allowed and $50 round money will begin with 3rd round win. Box and No-Box will be called separate until one remains in a category, then they will be combined.
If time allows, there will also be a pit vehicle race on Friday night.
Box Door Cars
On both Grizzly, Inc. Saturday and Mayes Powder Coating Sunday, the top bulb drivers will be competing for $10,000 to win, $2,500 for the runner-up, and $1,000 for the semifinalists.
First round losers can pay $100 for their shot at redemption in the re-entry round. Once a driver turns on the third round win light, they will collect $100 for each winning round.
There are multiple payment options for those who want to participate in the main events. A one-day Box single entry is $200 or a driver can double one-day for $300. If you’re looking to cash in both days, $300 will cover your tab.
Bottom bulb racers have a little more flexibility in how much risk and reward they are willing to race for during the Door Car Duel main events.
With the $100 single day entry or $150 weekend entry, No Box drivers will compete for $2,500 to win, $500 for the runner up, and $250 for the semifinalists. The re-entry will cost $50 but there is no round money earned for this option.
For those willing to up the ante by paying the $300 weekend entry fee they will also be eligible for increased benefits. The No Box High Roller racers will earn $100 round money or the No Box semi, runner-up, and winner’s purse. A first round buyback for No Box High Rollers will only cost $100.
If you win the No Box class while racing with a High Roller tech card, you will also advance into the next round of the Box class and continue racing for their $10,000 purse!
Junior Dragster racers are also invited in on the fun and will compete for $1,000, $400 runner-up, and $100 semifinalists each day. They will be divided into age groups (6-9, 10-12, 13 & Up) until one remains and then they will be combined. There will also be a $100 bonus to the last standing 6-9 year old. The Saturday and Sunday weekend entry is $100 and the buyback will be $20.
Moser Engineering Saturday Workin’ Overtime
New this year is the Saturday night Moser Engineering Workin’ Overtime race! It’s a shootout, without the hassle and rush to sign up. At 75 cars, it will be $7,500-to-win but could increase up to $43,000 at 256 cars. More cars means more money! It will be $250 to enter, no buybacks, but doubles are okay. $250 round money will start with round 3 win.
