Lucky the track is owned by a sponsored racer who loves having the track. It pretty much operates as a non-profit. Our racers have no idea how good they have it. Club racing is $10 for a first entry and $5 for each additional class. That's super cheap right?

That's a good price for club racing but to cheap to brake even a little the tracks I race at its at least $20 for one class and $10 for a club race .
