Endurance Race #2

Don’t forget about our 3 hour team endurance race this Saturday, May 6!  There are still spots available!  Race entry will be held with full payment.  Check out the Endurance tab for schedule and race format details.

We will open back up to the public at 1pm for rentals and open practice.

 

Rainout Race 4

It turned out to be a good decision to postpone the race as it rained to some degree ALL the daylight hours.  We ran the Yamaha shootout race and saw some really good racing.  We will double up on the next date, as discussed at the racer meeting, so look for some future info involving times.

Again, THANK YOU racers for helping us make the right choice.

Another Yamaha Shootout update

We think it’s time, maybe past time, to announce our outlook for the prizes we have been given in the form of sponsorship.  Currently we see a small, almost nonexistent, showing for the junior class.  Sooooo…. we are upgrading the  amounts for the senior class.  Here is what we are thinking for the senior class.

Pole position — $200 cash

Pre final winner — $250 cash + 3 $50 gift certificates

Pre final second — 2 $50 gift certificates

Pre final third — 1 $50 gift certificate

Feature winner — $750 cash + 1 set MG HZ tires

Feature second — 1 set MG HZ tires + 1 can of Sunoco 110 fuel + 1 $50 gift certificate

Feature third — 1 set MG HZ tires + 1 gift certificate

Feature fastest lap — $125 cash

Feature Hard Charger (most spots gained with highest finish determining any ties) — 3 gift certificates

Feature random pick (12th place) — 1 gift certificate

Once again, we would like to thank ALL of our sponsors for helping make this happen and a special thanks to Chad for working diligently on this.  See you Sat.

Yamaha Shootout Update

Our Yamaha Shootout is less than 2 weeks away with less than a week of pre-registration left.  This post is to help inform those coming about our tech guidelines.  Rick Jump, from Rt 66 & USPKS, will be leading tech and we will be using standard guidelines that WKA and most others use.  We will use the .390 “blowdown” spec for the ports.  Fuel tech will be by digitron with a VERY small tolerance.  Sunoco 110 fuel with 8 oz/gal of Redline, Burris castor, or Burris blend oil is the only spec.  All fuel/oil products are available on site.  Since these fuel/oil mixtures test differently, no mixing of oils will be allowed and you must declare your brand of oil at time of testing to be sure to get the right test results.  If you have run other fuel than Sunoco 110 in your tank, you would be smart to rinse your tank with Sunoco 110 a time or two to help insure your fuel test.  MG HZ (red) tires are required with no tire changes after first round of qualifying.  Tires are also available on site.  We have MG wets, 600 ONLY without bar codes, available, at severely reduced pricing, should it rain.

Tim Koyen, also from 66/USPKS, will be handling the microphone.  We have limited PA coverage beyond the grid and concessions area, due to neighbor complaints, but will be broadcasting on 104.1 FM so you may have a radio in your trailer to get full coverage of all announcements.
