After world championships and â€œBattle For the Beltsâ€ winners are decided, the American Drag Racing League (ADRL) will conclude its three-day weekend at Texas Motorplex with its fourth annual Racer Appreciation and Awards Gala on October 23 in the Championâ€™s Club.
Serving as a fitting finish to an already record-breaking 2011 season, the gala will end a weekend that includes the LenMar Motorsports ADRL World Finals VII and the â€œBattle For The Beltsâ€ on Oct. 21-23 at Texas Motorplex.
â€œAfter the race, we now will all have a chance to celebrate the incredible 2011 ADRL season together and award each of our world champions,â€ ADRL Executive Vice President Jeff Fortune said. â€œIt will be the perfect way to cap off what will be a thrilling 3-day weekend as well as an unbelievable 2011 season.â€
The casual dress event takes place from 6:30-10 p.m. in the Championâ€™s Club at Texas Motorplex. Tickets are $35 and everyone must purchase a ticket to attend.
ADRL will have a presentation to the class champions in a special ceremony, and belts will also be awarded to the â€œBattle For the Beltsâ€ winners. Additionally, the ADRL will announce and reward its 2011 Competitor of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Track of the Year.
