Is there power available at the track in the pits, or do we need generators? Is there a tire truing station w/ DC power? Air compressor station?

Thanks in advance.

Yep... I'm under the tent

That eliminates a lot of crap I have to haul from NY.

Thanks.

If youíre coming from a long way, the tent space is the way to go. When you send in your entry you can also pay for a spot under one of the tents. If you want to pit next to a friend or with a group please specify on your entry. Tent spaces will have available power, a chair and a 2x4 table space.

We have a new large capacity air compressor with two cleaning areas.

A 4x8 foot tire truing table with 12v power supply. One aux truing table.

There will be a table away from the track for breaking in engines.

Free garbage bags.

Free brush and dustpan rental.

Trailers must be parked in a designated area. There is an area where generators must be located, so bring extension cords to reach your trailer.

If you have a motor home you canít stay at the track overnight, but the Civic Center (where the track is located) has a separate area with hookups for overnight stays.

There is a food concession at the track.

There will be controlled practice divided by class. The last practice session of the day is open.....to the brave or desperate......and great fun to watch.


Fuel bottles are not allowed in the pits during practice!!! This is strictly enforced to give everybody a chance to practice.
