If everything goes right, we will try to broadcast this weekend. Some remarkable people from across the nation donated to a "Go Fund Me" campaign started by David Hendrick of Sidney. He set a goal of $1000 and that goal was surpassed in about 18 hours. I am humbled. THANK YOU to all the folks that gave so graciously and abundantly.

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.
