The deal is definitely a smash hit,” Smith said. “We got a ton of great feedback.”The completion of the Independence Drags IV was postponed due to steady rain on Saturday at the Topeka event, but that didn’t prevent an incredible reaction from fans and drivers when it came to the online broadcast.The following is a sampling of the driver feedback to the online broadcast:Pro Extreme driver Gaylen Smith: “It’s like bringing all of our friends and family to us.

That made it a home run in our eyes.”The next all-access online broadcast will take place on July 23-24 for the ADRL Inaugural Texas Drags at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, TX.The conclusion of the ADRL Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Dragpalooza VI presented by Safety-Kleen will be completed on July 23 at Houston Raceway Park, with the Inaugural Texas Drags to be completed the next day.The Independence Drags IV will be finished at the ADRL Hardee’s Gateway Drags III on August 7-8 at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Ill, just outside of St. Louis.The conclusion of final eliminations of the Independence Drags will take place on Friday, with the Gateway Drags to be completed the next day.
