Well, we have had time, as staff, to digest and agree on the decisions made Sunday. Thank you to all that came and even bigger thank for some good ideas.
The tentative schedule, along with a number of no-change items were confirmed and will be on the website. The manner in which we handle rainouts did change. Oct 6 will be scheduled as our rain date makeup. That date will NOT be a points race UNLESS we have a rainout during the first 14 races. If we have 2, or more, then the makeup will be a double race. In the event of more than 2 rainouts, we will adjust (from 12) the number of races counted for the championship. Weight was changed in JR206 to 320 (up from 310) since our batch of drivers are getting larger. SR206 was asked to be reduced to 350 (from 380) but no decision has been made at this point. Watch for updates.
FRIDAY NIGHT LEAGUE
The tentative schedules for both road course and oval were confirmed. A driver weight change, from 190 to 200, was suggested and will be confirmed in the early stages of session 1 along with the option of using the Kid Kart track once per session. We will now have a victory lap for feature winners. Our season champ will be identified using the best 21 of 24 races this year. Another choice of changing the podium to picture w/kart has been proposed. We would like feedback and watch for updates.
With Matt Bartling accepting the tech position, staffing needs are complete at this point.
Since the elite and premium karts will compete on the big track, together but in separate classes, it was suggested we include LO206 as an addition so that will mean 3 classes run together but scored separately. We have decided that is possible and we will offer that ONLY on races run on the big track. Watch for a complete schedule and formats.
MEMORIAL DAY “BLOCK PARTY”
This has been a fun day for the past two years and we will continue it for 2018. More details but we will furnish sandwiches and ask for a “dish to pass” from you. Rentals, race karts, and social life are the ingredients for a fun day. Mark it down.
We will host a vintage kart race on June 30 sponsored by White Knuckles Scrambles. See their website for details
JR HIGH RACING
We are hosting a “Friday Night League” format for Jr High students. Look for more details in the future but plan to attend the March 28 meeting for ALL the details.
