The Outlaw Pontiac Drag Series closed the final page of our 2014 season with the awarding of our Points finalists on Saturday January 10 at the Carroll County Ag Center in Boonesboro, MD.
We would like to thank the sixty-eight racers, family and friends who braved the cold and traveled the distance to see our point finalists handed their cash and prizes and to applaud our 2014 Champion Wayne Garrison. You can go to our Facebook page and, thanks to the many entries from Amy Staub and Bill Bolin you can see some of the activities.
We want to thank a bunch of people for their help in making this event and the 2014 race season a reality. Among those of course are our sponsors, many of whom were in attendance on Saturday. Doug Chell gave a great shout-out to our sponsors in attendance and we rewarded them with a FREE race pass in the 2015 race season and offered them a pick from our prize table of the many pieces of memorabilia donated by Arnie Beswick to our banquet.
Also, we want to thank GT’s Catering for providing an excellent meal and to Eric Patterson of Power Company DJ’s for the sounds for the evening and providing us with “contests” to determine some of our “award” winners.
We hope everyone had enough to eat and had a good time as well. Prizes and cash were handed out to our top 10 point finalists and all our points participants present were able to take something home that evening. Cash prizes were also awarded for our Reaction Time contest, 50/50, Sponsor Support Program, Perfect Attendance, Second Chance Award, and of course, the Redlight Award. Several cash door prizes and drawings of cash to our points participants were handed out as the evening came to and end.
Next year’s racing program was briefly presented, announcing the dates for 11 races in 2015 including a yet to be announced date for a special event some time during the season. Details are being worked out for this event and will be announced in the Spring. We also announced no increase in entry fees and no decrease in payouts by OPDS. Look for announcements concerning this and other information on this website and our Facebook page.
I considered our evening a success and want to personally thank everyone for the personal award given to me for my ‘dedication & service’ to OPDS. This recognition makes it all worthwhile and you all make it easy. It’s a great time hanging out and racing with all of you that enjoy Pontiacs and racing with the Outlaw Pontiac Drag Series. I hope to see you all in the Spring at our first race.
