The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway's Jan. 13-14 "racer appreciation test sessions" for participants in the 2006 Jerry's Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series and 2006 Short Line Express Markets Jr. Drag Racing Series have been postponed due to weekend weather forecasts for cold temperatures, wind and rain.  Racers who competed in the 2006 Jerry's Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series were to test Saturday and 2006 Short Line Express Markets Jr. Dragster participants were to test Sunday.

"We have been receiving calls from racers who were concerned about the weather and the outlook for the weekend doesn't look good," said Chris Blair.   "In the interest of safety, it would not be wise to attempt to run dragsters down the track under such cold conditions.  We felt it would be best to make the decision now in order to spread the word to everyone."

Racers in Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman and Motorcycle classes who participated in the 2006 Jerry's Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series will be eligible to redeem their free test 'n' tune on Sunday, Jan. 21, on the final day of the Nitro Blast-Off professional test session.   A special Jr. Dragster test session has been added for Friday, Feb. 16, from 4-8 p.m., prior to the opening event of the 2007 Short Line Express Markets Jr. Drag Racing event.
