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.

April 14, 2012 Highlights

The Smokers Club street stocks lined up as the final event of the night. It also saw a lot of tore up equipment. For most of the race it appeared that Mike Vandermark Jr was going to open the season in winners circle, however a blown motor forced Vandermark to retire early, handing the lead over to James Prochazka.

 

James didn't falter and opened his season with a win. JR Schmid, Andrew Fidler, Doug Mckeown Jr, and Doug Helsel rounded out the top five. Feature Winner Street Stocks - April 14, 2012
