Congratulations to the winners of our first-ever NAPA Sand Drag Challenge!
KRP hosted our Thanksgiving weekend event on Saturday, Nov 27th where we gave away tons of goodies and prizes to our spectators, while our participants took it to the line in our first ever Sand Drag race! Sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts, the park showcased an exciting day of racing and provided us some much needed feedback on improving the event in preparation for the coming 2011 Season!s
In addition to the racing, we gave away a fabulous trip for two to the Las Vegas American Country Awards! Lawrence Smith Jr., one of our HulaCross participants, was the lucky winner and we heard had a great time in LV! Thanks for being a supporter Lawrence! We also gave away 10 keys to Montgomery Motors' Cruise Into Christmas Suzuki Boulevard Give-Away! On December 18th, 1 of 40 keys will be the one that starts and wins a brand new Suzuku Boulevard! We'll announce the winner as soon as its known!
The racing was hot and heavy as tons of drivers showed up to take the purses for 1st & 2nd place in a heads-up elimination race to the finish. We'd like to thank all of our drivers for coming out and putting on a great show for our audience.
You can find all of the great photos of the event, including the tons of winners receiving their purses at our official Facebook page!

We'd like to thank all of the particpants and spectators that attended our 3rd HulaCross event! We had a noticeable increase in attendance for this event, proving that the word of mouth is becoming strong! If you've never been to a HulaCross event, you are missing out on what is fast becoming one of the most exciting motorsport events ever on Oahu. Carnage-filled and amazing to watch, our drivers take it to the wall every time and put their vehicles on the line for the sheer thrill of it. Every event is filled to the brim with incredible action and family-friendly entertainment. Our next event is scheduled for January 15th, 2011 and will kick off the first ever, year-long season for Hula-X! You can see all the photos at our official Facebook page - Kalaeloa Raceway Park!
Final Results may be found under the Motorsports > Hula-X > Results link on the navigation bar above or by clicking the following link!
If you think it takes alot to get into HulaCross, you're in for a real surprise. You don't need a purpose-built racecar...you just need four wheels and at least two doors! We've got vehicles racing out there that run the gauntlet from Honda Accords, Chevy Blazers, Ford Rangers to even Lincoln Towncars and Oldsmobiles! It's cheap, and it's good fun...just go to your local junkyard, buy a cheap beater, paint some numbers on it and bring it out! Of course, we've got guys out there that are starting to build awesome vehicles for the event, like Steve Oliberos and his rally-prepped S13, or Davin Kubo with his Subaru WRX...things are starting to heat up between the serious competitors, and we can't wait to see what happens next year!
For this event, we introduced what many of our stock car racers have been screaming for: True Wheel 2 Wheel Racing! We had FIVE fantastic heats of Hulagan Racing...which is our new flag to flag racing series. The top two winners of each Heat advanced to the final Main event. This was a trial event that resulted in some of the best racing we've had thus far at KRP and was an extreme crowd-pleaser. We're very happy with the Hulagan Racing format and are now set for the January Season where we'll introduce a Championship series for the both the HulaCross and Hulagan Racing! The winner of this informal main was Shane Moniz with his Jeep Cherokee, 2nd place was Chad Moniz in his Ford Explorer, and third went to Ryan Evans in his Honda Odyssey Go-Kart!!!! (Ryan has some huge...lug nuts!)
We're still working out the kinks on our HulaCross timing systems, but we'll be doing some serious testing before the next event to make sure we've got the system timers working properly. We want to put as many cars on the track as we can to keep things exciting, so be watching for changes to the format, HulaCross time attackers!
In addition, we held our first ever All Wahine Challenge with a combined purse value of $435 dollars! These girls went out and raced on a whim, with some great crowd support. The racing was pretty awesome, and there was tons of cheering as they pulled out the guts to do some pretty daring bumping and grinding! We'd like to thank the sponsors that put the purse up for grabs:
- Paradise Lua - $100
- North Shore Nails Salon - $100 Gift Certificate
- Refrigerant Recycling, Inc. - $100
- Aiwohi Trucking - $100
- Young Hawaiian Surfboards - $20
- Private Spectator Donation - $15
Finally, we'd like to congratulate our winners in the following photos...awarded by Co-Developer & Park Owner Jeanette Grace:
Fastest Time - Steven Oliberos - 59.97 - $100
2nd Fastest time - Davin Kubo - 1:01.00 - $75
3rd Fastest Time - Shane Moniz - 1:02.03 - $50
Wild Wahine Challenge Winner - Josie Smith - $435

This should get some people's blood pumping...Gerald Ing, long-time supporter of Build The Track!, came out and did some 60-Ft tests on the existing asphalt at KRP. This is a VERY short clip of one of the launches.
We wanted to see how the ground would hold up, and how much rocks would be thrown around. He wanted to test for Maui so it was a win-win. It was the first drag race car ever launched at KRP. I'm sure it won't be the last if we get our way.
The surface is extremely rough, wide enough for only one car at a time, but it's doable for testing and possible burnout competitions at the moment. Please keep in mind that this was only for a 60-foot comp test and to see whether it's even a credible idea. Gerald also generously donated to the "Asphalt Fund" for KRP.
We're trying to support everyone, and we're working with what we have, so please show us some love as we work towards getting EVERYONE racing again! Mahalo!

Our second HulaCross was seriously awesome full of extreme off-road action as well as some of the most amazing jumps and fender-bender carnage Oahu has ever seen! Thanks to the great participation, we were able to give an $800 combined purse for our second event. You can find some fantastic photos at our official Facebook page - Kalaeloa Raceway Park!
We'd like to thank everyone that came out to participate at Hula-X...the drivers put on an incredible show that wowed the crowd, and left most people giggling in excitement, including the drivers themselves! Throughout the day, the crowds ooh'ed and ahh'ed at tons of insane tabletop jumps, thrilled at the mudpit splashes, and screamed at the off-the-wall crashes that resulted in some seriously raw footage that we simply can't wait to put together in our next video. We'd also like to thank our volunteers, including our course workers, timing officials, and our photo/videographers for making the event happen.
Thanks to DH Built for coming out and crushing some cars with his monster rig...it was good fun and a perfect complement to the Hula-X action!
We welcome you to check out our next HulaCross coming in December and join the rest of us as we enjoy what has simply become one of the most phenomenal motorsports events on Oahu.
Heads up to all of our drivers...we would like to put on a flag-to-flag, wheel-2-wheel race, but we simply must require that you have a firesuit, 4,5, or 6 point harness, secure yet removable window nets and/or arm restraints (Need nets on both sides if you have passengers). We are looking at a minimum 4 vehicles for the race. Purses will depend on driver participation.
In addition, we'd like to congratulate our winners in the following photos...awarded by Co-Developer & Park Owner Jeanette Grace.
Fastest Time - Mike Ward - 52.50 - $400
2nd Fastest Time - Boy Moniz - 1:00.06 - $300
3rd Fastest Time - Avery Tsui - 1:00.5 - $100. Avery graciously re-donated his purse winnings towards putting some asphalt down at KRP! Thank you, Avery!
