Plastic 55-Gallon Drums Needed for Additional Trash Cans
We are in need of additional 55-gallon plastic drums to use for trash cans at the track. If you have some available, please drop them off at the track near the caretaker's garage. Thank you!
Track Closed for Practice July 10-11th
Briggs & Stratton Raceway Park will be closed for practice on July 10th and 11th. Thursday, July 11th, the grounds will be open for trailer parking only for the USPKS race that weekend. USPKS rules prohibit practice prior to Friday during the week of their events.
Points Updated 06/02
The 2013 points have been posted. Please check those pages for accuracy and send any discrepancies to Chris Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, you must contest errors in points within two weeks of posting (rule 188.8.131.52). A note regarding Blackhawk points: drivers who entered more than one class that ran at time same time at Blackhawk will receive the same points in all classes entered. This only affects Komet and Yamaha Sportsman. We do not track fast times at Blackhawk, so the fast times and track records are unchanged this week.
