The Les Schwab Tires Best of Detroit event will showcase the Chevy Cup, Ford Cup, Buick-Olds-Pontiac Cup & Mopar Cup. The event takes place Sunday, September 26.

Sponsored by Kidd Performance `n Dyno & Larry H. Miller Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge, the overall Manufacturer Cup Champion was MOPAR (won by John Smith for the second year in a row!!!).

In addition, racing will be offered in Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman, Sled/Bike and Jr. Dragster/Jr. Street, too. The event is open to all racers. The 2021 Championship will also be decided in the Pro Comp eliminator. Pro Comp is a class open to dragsters, roadsters, altereds and the like running on the pro. .4-tenths tree.

Gates will open by 8 am on the second day of the double header weekend of racing. Time trials will be offered starting at 9:15 am. Eliminations will get underway at 12:30 pm.
