The Injun Wars Race Series will be one tool we use to help compile The Pontiac List.
Our first race will be at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, IN (Indy) June 16th & 17th, 2018.
This track is famous for hosting the NHRA U.S. Nationals and will fit perfectly into a pre-Norwalk Pontiac Nationals test session.
The race will be open to Classic and Modern Pontiac door cars, Funny Cars, Altereds and Dragsters. The engine determines the Class and as the field grows, so will the Classes.
A Classic Pontiac is defined as a Pontiac car with a Traditional Pontiac engine. If any other make car or truck wants to participate, it must have a Traditional Pontiac engine and would be in this Class.
A Modern Pontiac is defined as a Pontiac car with an engine produced by Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, etc. This Class would include Classic Pontiac bodied cars with other than Traditional Pontiac engines. For example, Arnie Beswick's '64 GTO.
Funny Cars, Altereds and Dragsters are defined as any chassis/body with a Traditional Pontiac engine only.
We will be running in a separate race but along with their bracket racing program. The track requested that only experienced drivers participate so if you're not currently racing, this first race probably isn't for you.
Initial plans are for Saturday's & Sunday's time trials to be used as heads up races for those wanting to pair up. Additional heads up possibilities are available by pairing up in the first round of eliminations by simply using the same dial in on both cars. After the first round, all cars will dial in as it is a bracket race.
If there is enough interest, we can set up a strictly heads up class, and intend to as car count increases.
We are shooting for 50 cars to participate in this first race and we will then look toward renting the track and hosting a much bigger race soon afterward. One thing that's guaranteed is that it's a beginning and they say that's always the best place to start.
