Well, maybe not quite like Indianapolis and their famous ‘Carburetion Day’, but we hope you get the idea. Yes we know, Indy cars don’t have carburetors anymore, but they still call their last practice day before the 500 ‘Carburetion Day’. What racer doesn’t need an extra Sunday to get ready for the fast approaching 2017 season? This Sunday is an extra practice day for those who can’t make it to the track on a normal Wednesday through Friday practice session (and for that matter those that did practice during the week).
Why attend? Work the bugs out of that new or freshly rebuilt go kart. Practice laps make all drivers better, so practice, practice, practice. Take advantage of a non hectic race day to check your kart and driver weight. Get your proper engine restrictor installed, Get some time on the computerized scale to dial in handling and where to add that extra weight. Pick up the parts your missing. Take you kart through safety tech. Get those new tires mounted up. Meet the old pros and the newbies as we prep for race day #1.
$20/driver practice fee.
All classes + Kid Kart will run the full 16 week/race schedule. Drivers will have three throw outs to use, as 13 races will be counted for season points. If weather keeps us from getting 16 races completed, we'll still use three throw outs. Lowest point days will be dropped if more than 13 races are run. Bonus points cannot be separated from race day points for throw out purposes.
Bonus Points: Racers that participated in the Box Stock or Masters 100 Lapper 10-23-16 will receive 50 bonus points in their 2017 class. Opening day has an extra 100 bonus points. The Red, White and Blue races are double points. The season championship race is also double points.
Rain days will be made up on open Sundays and/or we will run double race days on another scheduled Sunday date.
Race times: Sunday's will remain as they were with a 9 AM registration, 10 AM practice and Noon race times (championship Sunday Oct 2nd has an 8 AM registration).
