The Roxboro Motorsports Park will host the B.A.D. Boys Doorslammers series this Saturday, June 21st. This will be the third B.A.D. Boys event of the 2014 season.
When this series was created, it was basically for Blown or Boosted Doorslammers but now the track co-owner Jr Ward decided that Nitrous injected cars can also compete. “We opened the series up to the Nitrous competitors also,” said Ward. “We welcome them, we want them to come and compete with us now. All they have to do is make sure that they weigh 2550 just like the rest of us.”
The rules for the B.A.D. Boys are as follows;
2550 Minium Weight before run
540 Cubic Inch Maximum

Again, there is no entry fee for the B.A.D. Boys competitors. The track will be open Friday for test and tune as well.
Along with the B.A.D. Boys Roxboro will also have the 4.90 Extreme. The entry fee is $100.00 for car and driver based on a sixteen-car field. There will also 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0 Index Classes. The entry fee is $50.00, 100% payback to the winner, runner-up and semifinalist. This is a non points race.
After purchasing Roxboro Motorsports earlier this year the new owner’s Jr Ward and Danny Grizzard have made lots of improvements. One of the first things that they did was hire Southeast Grinding and Grooving to make major improvements to the racing surface. All the bumps and imperfect problems are now gone. The racing surface is now very smooth. Along with the grinding the restrooms have been redone. There is also all new timing equipment in place. These are just some of the upgrades and the new owners are planning several more upgrades.
General admission is $15.00 with children 12 and under free. For more information please visit
