Its time for an Enduro!

The 3.5 hour enduro is scheduled for July 21. We are hoping for a great turnout to this one to assure we can schedule more of these. This race is open to all members and non-members who have a valid competition License. The pit stop rules have been modified this year making it easier to put a team together. You don’t need to have a full crew, with a timed pit stop the drivers can do it all themselves if they desire.

A scrumptious buffet dinner will be available for purchase for racers and spectators alike from 6:00-9:00!  Please come out and cheer for your favorite race team.
