CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Georgia’s Brainerd Motorsports Park has announced the formation of the Four-Forty Bad Boyz drag racing series.
The Four-Forty Bad Boyz class will consist of a seven-race series held on the third weekend of every month from April through October. Racers from all around the tri-state region and as far away as Florida, Michigan, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, will fight it out to determine who the champion and bad boy (or girl) title belt holder will be.
The race day format will be a 4.40 index race with two rounds of qualifying, and an all run field put on a pro ladder.
“The amount of interest we’ve had in a very short period of time has been nothing short of amazing,” said Brainerd Motorsports Park Track Manager Steven Farrow. “Index racers who want to speed up, pro mod racers who want to slow down, fast top sportsman racers, small tire guys who’re looking for a home, new cars being purpose built for the class…we’ve heard from just about everyone, and they’re all welcome.
“I believe that the family type atmosphere of BMP, and additional perks such as free Friday testing and overnight parking for everybody who buys a 4.40 tech card, will add value to racers who’re traveling from far away.”
Another idea being tossed around is a racer appreciation barbecue each Friday evening at no charge.
“We may have to adjust that one based on how many show up and how much they can eat,” said Farrow with a laugh.
Brainerd Motorsports Park will also offer a non-denominational chapel service on Saturday morning in consideration of traveling racers who can’t attend their regular home church on Sunday.
The Bad Boyz and BMP plan to make an official announcement about the guaranteed monthly purse structure, and its series sponsors at the conclusion of the PRI Trade Show in Indianapolis, Ind., next month.
