Friday kicks off with Family Fun Night featuring two rounds of PMRA Pro Modified qualifying and Saturday is set to be one spectacular day of drag racing with Top Fuel, Pro Modified, Bob Motz' Jet-powered Kenworth Truck and many more professionals competing from  throughout the United States and Canada at The Fastest Track in Michigan.

"We see much excitement from our fans when the Pro Mods and Top Fuel Dragsters race at Martin.  To have both of these phenomenal classes running at the same race is sure to be one of the best events at US 131 Motorsports Park in recent years," said Jason Peterson General Manager of US 131 Motorsports Park.

Fans can expect two events for the price of one.  The rescheduled May Thunder Nationals show featuring the 300+ miles per hour Top Dragsters and the Summer Showdown featuring the PMRA, Pro Modified Racing Association, which presents Pro Modified racing, a Quick 32 Sportsman Series, comprised of a 16-car Top Dragster field and a 16-car Top Sportsman field. The fields go through their separate eliminations using a Sportsman-style dial-in handicap, and the top eliminator from each side matches up for a final which declares the event winner and the Pro Bike & Sled Series that combines motorcycles and snowmobiles.  The Lane Automotive Bracket Series will be contested for their sixth points race Saturday night with testing on Friday.

Friday gates open at 4:30pm, time runs begin at 5pm for bracket racers.  The Pro Modified cars, Quick 32 and Pro Bike & Sled Series will be qualifying at 7pm and 9pm.  Friday Family Fun Night general admission for adults is $12, children ages 6-12 are only $5.  Adult tickets purchased at include up to three children's tickets.  The Magical Balloon Guy will be entertaining Friday night from 6pm-8pm and test your skills on the inflatable obstacle course both days.
