S&H Classes and Rules 3/16/2011

Post  nymicroguy on Wed Mar 16, 2011 11:28 pm

Awsome to see so many people intrested in Tue Nite racing at S&H. It was a bit rough our first nite but all seemed to have a blast. I promise to get the program quicker next week and In two weeks we should be first class.

Below is what I have seen at a few tracks and just added a few clarifications to what they have in place already. I ask that you please do your best to comply with the race rules and if there are any doubts .... please Just ask. If there are any questions or you see something that I missed, feel free to PM, email or call me
