About Match Race Madness
Match racing is not a new sport. It has been around since the 1960’s. In an effort to bring true, heads up drag racing to the forefront of a bracket dominated sport , Steve Sherman, a no-nonsense racer himself, organized a Ford versus Chevy match race which led to a San Diego versus Los Angeles all out 800 spectator event. Thus, the idea of 20+ pairs of racers as opposed to one pair came to be, and Match Race Madness was born. What started out three years ago as a match race, is now a spectacular event.
Holding true to grass roots, heads up drag racing tradition, the racer with the best 2 out of 3 races wins. Featured at this event will be the race we all have been waiting for Steve vs Shilo, Chevy vs Mopar, Small block to Small block. Every ticket is a pit pass, so fans can meet their favorite driver and see up close every car or bike that will be racing down the track. First ten kids with 10 match racer signatures stop by the Crower booth for a free shirt. Camping is free at this family oriented event. We expect you there because as you will see, there is no cure for Match Race Madness. Are you down with the sickness?
