FALLON, NV    APRIL 28, 2010: Octane Fest will host events at four different locations throughout the course of the June 11-13, 2010 weekend.  The NHRA Lucas Oil Division 7 Series will be at the Top Gun Raceway, Hurricams Car Show will take over Oats Park, IMCA Dirt Track Racing will be at Rattlesnake Raceway and the Fallon Fairgrounds will host the 4×4 Jamboree including SuperLite Trucks, Rock Crawling, TUFF-CUP Pro Arena Rock Racing, Tuff-Cross (Arena Enduro Racing), Motocross, Tuff-Truck, Demolition Derby, Monster Ride trucks, Mud Drags, and the 2nd Annual Mad Metal Truck Show & Shine.

The asphalt will heat up on Friday at the Top Gun Raceway for the NHRA Lucas Oil Division 7 series points race.  There will be Top Alcohol Dragsters and Top Alcohol Funny Cars that reach speeds of 250+mph along with seven other categories of vehicles including wheel standing Super Stocks, motorcycles, 4×4’s and diesel trucks.  “We are expecting over 200 vehicles with many of them hitting the low 6 second mark up to the 10 second category,” explained John Stauverman from Top Gun Raceway.  Qualifying will take place Friday and Saturday with eliminations on Sunday.

The oldest car club in Nevada will host the 6th annual Hurricams Car Club Show and Shine at Oats Park on Saturday.  “We should have a really good turn out this year with over 125 cars entering the 28 classes.  There is no doubt there will be plenty of amazing cars and trucks to look at!” said Mike Lakin, president of the Hurricams Car Club.  Cash and trophies will be handed out to the winners of the different classes with the highest honor being Best of Show.  Spectators can also participate in a five-stop poker walk while exploring downtown Fallon.

The lights will be on Saturday night June 12 at the Rattlesnake Raceway where trailers will unload IMCA sanctioned Pro Stocks, Hobby Stock, Mini Mods, Bombers, Gen-x and Rad Mods to go racing around the stock car dirt track.

The racing action is just a start to the weekend.  There will be a vendor show, a show and shine and a motorsports swap meet.  This is an event that you can bring the whole family out to enjoy.  To top the evenings off, join Pirate4x4 in the Saloon for a cold Coors Light and an after party with music you can dance to.

Competitors are encouraged to sign up for the different sanctioned events.  Additional information and             Entry Forms can be found on the Octane Fest website.  CalROCS will be hosting the Rock Crawling, NMXD will be hosting the Tuff Cross and Motocross event, and Speed Technologies will feature the SuperLite Invitational on Saturday night.
