Just a reminder there will be no racing this Friday, June 21st.
We will see everyone again on June 28th for the BRP Big Block Modifieds, Super Lates, Street Stocks and FWDs. The Semi Lates will have the evening off.
We are racing. We are going to be later than usual cuz we are just getting on the track now for track prep. We will leave pill draw open longer for traveling teams
Points for 5/17 do not display on Mylaps because we had a bad cable from the Mylaps boxes to the computer that evening and we had to hand score all classes for the night. The points from 5/17 were calculated by hand and were added into the night of 5/24 points. Sorry for any confusion on this matter. If you have any issues please message the track. Thank you.
