Opening Day, Points Race #1
Apr 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
This is going to be fun. Our returning go karters look forward to shaking off the long winter with some great wheel to wheel fun. But the most fun will be for our new go karters staring their first season and first race day! Yes, butterflies in the stomach all around on that first starting grid, but once the nerves turn into adrenaline it’s all fun. Or maybe funny business would be a more apt description.
Points Race #1 also has a very important bonus; 100 bonus season championship points! Added incentive to quite procrastinating about getting that new kart bought or you current ride ready to go.
9 AM to register, 10 AM for practice, Driver’s Meeting at 11:30 AM and 1st race shortly after Noon.
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).
