There was a modification to the rules concerning transponders. While it was changed in the rules, I failed to post here it here. This rule was modified April 21st, 2015. It says: "18. Transponders must be mounted on the right side and the back of rear axle and in an orange transponder pouch. If your transponder falls off you may not be scored and you will be responsible for replacing the transponder.Any racer caught trying to modify or deliberately changing location of transponder will be disqualified."  Check with your tech inspector if you have questions.

We will be live streaming the races tonight starting about 7:25 or so and you can watch on your pc HERE while I-Pad users can watch HERE. You can test your device before the races begin by clicking on one of the previous links as we have a 24/7 stream of races from 2014 running.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Model feature was one of fast and
furious action that saw Kyle Borgman and Tom Dusen bobbing and weaving to get to the front early

Feature Winner Late Models - May 12, 2012
Matt Pickard and Carl Ries ran side by side for the next two spots as Dusen took over the lead at the halfway point. Pickard moved to second with ten to go with Borgman trying to pass him back. Dusen was about to start passing lapped traffic when a pair of cars spun right in front of him with eight to go. The damage
appeared to slightly affect his handling when the action resumed,
he had Pickard glued to his bumper. Pickard was able to slide under
Dusen to take the lead with six left. Pickard held on to win after
starting tenth over Borgman, Roger Wing, Ries, Scott Nieman, Scott
Philips, Jay Van Dyke, Jason Borton, James Neff, and Kurt Mesman. Wing and Phillips brought home heat victories.
