Default Race Date.....

The Date of the Race will be April 4th and 5th

The race flyer will be out this weekend with all the information.

Here is some more information....

ALL USVTA rules will be in effect.
All tires will have to be inspected and marked before they can be used. There will be online signs up.
Two full days of racing action.
Racing will be done in "Reedy Race" format...... example 2 or 3 qualifiers(depending on turn out) to seat everyone 1 to 100(est.) and then the field will be split in half....into an A group top half and a B group lower half. Each group will then race a total of 6 heads up racing rounds over the two days with 5 races counting for your points and 1 as a throw out. The A and B groups will each have awards for the top 10 in each group. All Qualifiers and Races will be 5 minutes.

There will also be a SUPER 20 CAR Main after all the racing is done. We will take the top 10 from each group and have them all race at the same time on the track for an 8 minute super main.....with the winner getting a trophy and they will also get their name engraved on a perpetual trophy.

Also we will have a Team or Track Competition. You will have to have 4 racers on a team with a total of 6 racers max on a team. Each of these racers will get points based on how they finish over all. The 4 highest totals will count towards the final tally. A Driver in the B group will not score higher then a driver in the A group to eliminate sand bagging. The winning team will get a team trophy and they will have their team's or track's name engraved on a perpetual trophy.


More info and news will be added here in the next few days.

No there is no Max....There is enough room for 85 to 90 people to pit at The Track....with the option to expand that even more if need be. Last year there were about 65 or so people there so something in the 70 to 90 ballpark would be a reasonable assumption I would think this year. There is room for more racers to be added so there is no max.

Its hard to say what you consider locals.....there is about 30 to 40 people that are with in a two hour radius that where there last year then there were people that came from further then that. There was more locals then out of towners but thats just like any race. I think we had people from IN, IL, WI, NE, IA, CA I think someone from MD too?? But that was the first race and it filled up rather fast. This year there is no limits......

Hoping the 1st day is just practice... Last year was nice to have Friday evening for travel and practice, Saturday racing and partial travel back and Sunday to finish the drive home...

Gary....Thats the plan....Friday will be just an open pit/shop day....no track time. Saturday the doors will open at 8am practice until 2pm......5 minute runs for practice there will be a running clock to clear the stand for the next group.....then Qualifiers and 2 ro 3 rounds of racing. This way there is no extra track time for anyone and there isnt a real need for Friday travel unless you want to.
