ARENA RACING HAMPTON ROADS at Hampton (Va.) Coliseum
2009-10 season launches this Saturday Thursday, Oct. 22, 2009
Buoyed by a strong cadre of returning veterans and a small, but promising, crop of rookie contenders, Arena Racing Hampton Roads kicks off its 15-race 2009-10 campaign this Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Hampton Coliseum — the series’ exclusive home for the third straight season.
Saturday’s lineup includes A, B and C Mains — 50 laps each. The top six finishers from the A Main and the top four finishers from the B and C Mains advance to the 50-lap Top Dog race, the final race of the evening.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and racing gets under way at 7:00. Drivers will be available to meet and greet fans before and after the program.
All tickets for the season-opener are $5. Kids under 3 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available at the Coliseum Box Office, TicketMaster locations and online at <www.ticketmaster.com>. A service fee will be added to each ticket purchase.

For the uninitiated, Arena Racing events feature half-scale cars competing on a tenth-mile, high-banked oval. Lap times in the 8-second range are common and, with up to 14 cars battling in close quarters, old-school frammin’ and bammin’ is the norm.

A quick check of the preseason roster reveals that 17 of last season’s top 20 drivers have registered for action in 2009-10 with defending series champ Adam Florian heading the list.
