2017 Race Season

January 26th, 2017

Hello, all! As you can see, the race season is coming pretty fast. There will be some changes to this year’s season.  The SUPERS ARE returning to the knob. It will be on a limited schedule, but there will be there some! The crates are going to be sanctioned by RUSH! A lot of the drivers expressed interest in going back to the RUSH sanction. A new limited late models class will be running this year as well.We are going to be introducing a steel block class. This new class will not run the weeks the SUPERS do. But, they can run with the supers when they are there. This class will run under the UFO rules from last year!   The Chargers and Four cylinders classes will be coming as well as the classic cars. Powderpuff will be included. We are going to be adding a 4 and 6 cylinder enduro class too, racing at least 8 races. Mini Wedges will be running every week. Street stocks should be a go but we need to evaluate to see how many drivers plan on showing up. Plus some more surprises to come! The first practice will be on March 25, 2017 and the first race will be held on April 8, 2017. All new class rules will be out by the first of the week per Rick Jones. Thanks for your interest!
