    About Slater's 50/50:
    It all started with a passion for good food and craft beer.

    Slater’s 50/50 was founded in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California by Scott Slater, a SoCal native with a passion for burgers, bacon and craft beer and a disdain for the boring. Inspired by the belief that bacon is meat candy, Scott created the original 50/50 patty– made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef – which now has evolved to include an array of inconceivably “slaterized” items packed with award-winning burgers, loaded flatbreads, over-the-top salads, amped-up milkshakes, tons of beers on tap, and some healthy options, too.

    ABOUT NILES

    Niles was established in the 1850s and was a junction point of the Southern Pacific Railroad lines from Oakland to San Jose and southern coastal points. Vallejo’s Mill was the first flourishing flour mill constructed and completed in this country. It was run by water conducted in a long flume from Alameda Creek. Niles at one time was noted for the location of the California Nursery, the largest nursery in California, with the largest rose plantation in the state.

    In 1912, Essanay Studios was at the height of its movie making fame. The studio, owned by Gilbert M. “Broncho Billy” Anderson and his partner George Spoor, made famous movies of the time starring Charlie Chaplin, Wallace Beery, and Ben Turpin. Many cowboy adventures were filmed through Niles Canyon and along the main streets of Niles. The towns of Niles, Mission San Jose, Centerville, Irvington, and Warm Springs were incorporated into the City of Fremont in 1956.

    Today Fremont’s Niles District is famous for its historic shopping district, Wildflower Festival, Niles Essanay Silent Film Festival and Museum, its annual Antique Fair, and the Niles Canyon Railway. Watch Niles as the community continues to show off a captivating historic character, a family atmosphere, and a friendly shopping experience.

    Open Drag Racing Session: 10:00AM - 3:00PM
    Competitors choose grudge matches or just line up and race.  Dial in your best E/T which will determine whether or not you make it to the finals in your respective class.

Cars will be placed in each bracket based on E/T time slips "fastest vs slowest".  Your best E/T will determine seeding and which bracket class of competition you will compete in during the finals.  For example, if you run a 10.99 E/T and you registered to compete in "Daily Driver" class, you will be bumped up to the Street Racer class and not be allowed to compete in the Daily Driver class.
