Dirt Webs in gold and Electrons MC clay are the most popular for stadium truck and buggy, Crosslinks clay are new and people are using them also. There is so much grip just about any clay compound tire will probably work. Hope to see you there!!

Awesome 3 days of racing, glad to see the out of towners and hope all had a good time racing with us!!

Been working on getting the videos up I recorded the last couple of days, captured most of the 4th round of qualifiers and the mains on Sunday. Here's a link to the youtube playlist--

Should get them all up in the next couple days, I'll upload the A Mains in better quality so they will take a little longer. Enjoy!!

Here's a link to the full results from the weekend--

Put this event on your calendar for next year as I'm sure it will be another good one--and don't forget about the Stock Wars race in June!!
