  • First car off by 10am. Everyone will get ten or more runs and we hope to finish by 4pm.

  • Season Championship Specific Rules
    To qualify for the championship series, you must participate in at least 5 events in the same class.
    Participation means you must work both of your assignment sessions and make one successful run in each driving heat. Failing to meet this requirement forfeits your points for the event.
    Points from different classes will not be combined.
