SIR will be making up the 5 rained out features from 6-7-14 the following days:
6-28-14: Junior Sprints, Restrictors, and Mod Lites
7-5-14: Dwarf and Wing Outlaw

On these nights we will be running hot laps for everyone first thing (including racers just racing the new nights program). Then we will run the make up features, followed by a short break, then heat race action for the new nights racing.

Of note: you can only run the make up features if you were present on 6-7-14. You MAY NOT pay and tag the back of them. If racers do not show the line ups will be adjusted accordingly.

Thank you for your patience while we figured out the make up schedule. We hope to see everyone come out these nights. Don't forget Moulton's Farm Fresh Restrictors will be racing for $500 in their make up feature!!

To clarify any confusion on rules for the Highbanks Hustle, we will follow POWRi rules for the duration of the event and the 2014 season and beyond.

This means a 640cc max engine displacement, no tire doping and no fuel additives.

We will be checking all three of these this coming weekend!
