We have opened the rules in this division for the 2016 Season to increase the car count. Contact Mike @ 231-818-3320 for clarification of rules.
This is not a "bump & run" class, demolition derby or "enduro". This class is meant to get racers into racing and it will be run as all other classes are run at this race track.
