Default 2012 Skagit River Raceway Summer Off Road Series

Welcome all to the 2012 Skagit River Raceway Off Road thread. I am this years director and look forward to this years season. I plan to keep the structure of this year much the same as the past few years if i can. I will post the scheduel soon. The plan is to not interfere with J&S and NCT's. To do this without running into late september early October we should have a race or 2 on Sunday. If anyone is opposed to this speak now.

Ben Silva

Yes, I know about May 26, I did my best to avoid running into late september early October and unfortunately there was bound to be a conflict or 2. But at least we have wiggle room for makeup races

The offroad track is open to the public everyday, with the exception of race days of course.

Great track! hopefully beable to hit a few night races and Sunday races if there's any due to my work hours :/ He was talking about the oval running Saturday night so might have to pick up an oval rig
