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.

For those that intend to have minors entering the pits, here is the minor release form to have pre-filled out. PLEASE NOTE! "Legal" people say you need to do one of two things. Fill it out and have it notarized or fill it out but don't sign it until you are at the track so track officials can countersign it. Other forms will be posted here shortly.

The final event of the night belonged to the Engine Pro Pro Tucks as they had 20 laps to settle the score and see who would be victorious. Rookie Richard Melton led the first half of the race until a mistake took him out of contention and handed the lead over to Scott Neiman who didn’t look back.


Feature Winner Pro Trucks - Scott Nieman, July 30, 2011Melton showed a glimpse of what is in store for the truck class in the coming season with a very solid run in his rookie season. Neiman was able to hold on for the win over Tim Wood, Dave Dancer, Ashlee Scott, and Dave Peters.

Bob Griffin and Richard Melton were victorious in their heats.
