Don't forget that this Saturday, June 7th we will have a 25 Lap Restrictor Special paying $500 to win back up to 12 places!!! The winner will also receive a trophy!

The restrictor class rules can be found . We have had 4 winners in 5 races this year on the Highbanks in the restrictor class, so this should be a fun competitive event. We would like to also thank Lightning Wings for their sponsorship of 3 $25 gift certificates for the winner, hard charger, and hard luck award!

All other classes will be running for normal payouts. General admission and pit passes will stay at our normal weekly rates! So come on out and support the restrictor class this weekend. We had 430 people in the grandstand last week, so let's shoot for 450 this week!

SIR is still looking for a track announcer to fill in for Kurt and transition to being full time in 2015! We have had several interested but none have panned out. So please share this and if you know someone have them contact the Facebook page. It is a paid position.
