Because we did not have a racer meeting in Feb, due to COVID, this post is intended to submit our ideas for 2021. We encourage your feedback and ideas before we adopt the final plan. We are suggesting we run BOTH Jr & Sr on thurs eve. We do not think it will lengthen our night much as they use different karts and we can alternate track usage with another class rather than a rest period. Also possibly a family may have a student in both and would reduce trips and schedule commitments. Unless COVID restricts us, we are planning to have the “open gate” property outlook which means ONLY those entering hot grid need wristbands and others would NOT require wristbands to be on property. COVID rules still currently enforce masks inside buildings and social distancing at all times.

JR League proposed guidelines

  • Maximum age is 8th grade 2021 graduate — minimum age 12
  • Run in our original karts
  • Drivers must weigh, or ballast, to 120–(New idea)
  • Drivers meeting 6PM
  • Cost = $45 which includes drivers pass with optional kart insurance for additional $10 (Same as 2020)
  • Format = 5 min warm-up, 2-6 lap heat races, 10 lap feature (Same as 2020)
  • Points for feature only

Sr League proposed guidelines

  • Maximum age is High School 2021 graduate — minimum age 12
  • Run in our premium karts
  • Drivers must weigh, or ballast, to 180
  • Drivers meeting 6PM
  • Cost = $50 which includes drivers pass with optional kart insurance for additional $10 (Same as 2020)
  • Format = 5 min warm-up, 2-6 lap heat races, 10 lap feature (Same as 2020)
  • Points for feature only

SCHEDULE and RAINOUT ideas

  • 16 dates, counting 14 for season awards, honoring class at banquet like FNL & POINTS classes currently
  • DATES – May 6, 13, 20, 27, June 3, 10, 17, 24, July 8, 15, 22, 29, Aug 5, 12, 19, 26

RAINOUT thoughts or possible choices

  1. Makeup on the following event as a double
  2. Schedule July 1 & Sep 2 as rain makeups (used ONLY if previous rainout)
  3. Eliminate any rainouts from points consideration

We would like your thoughts on our ideas. Look for future posts on FNL, pre-registration, tire contracts to name a few.
