Double Duty for Canidae Racing – Team Set to Fire Up Trophy Truck and Top Fuel Sand Dragster Over Action Packed Weekend

Coming on the heels of two top ten finishes at the SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge, Canidae Racing looks to double up on the action this week competing in the trophy truck class at the "BITD BlueWater Parker 425" race and firing up their Canidae Pet Foods top fuel sand dragster at the 3rd annual "AZ vs Cali Top Fuel Shootout" at Dome Valley Raceway in Welton, AZ -- both on the same weekend.

Beginning on Thursday, the team will be at the BlueWater Casino & Resort for trophy truck time trials and qualifying in the morning and then take part in the Parker "Downtown Experience" and street fair being held for fans beginning at 3:00 pm. Team sponsor Canidae Pet Foods will also be on hand with free samples, coupons and goodies for pet owners and fans in attendance at the event. The day will wind up with an escorted parade of race vehicles back to the main pit area.
