Sport Mod Camshaft Rule Revision

In order to be consistent with all other tracks running Sport Mod we have made a small revision to the camshaft rule which will not allow solid flat tappet camshafts. The only camshaft that will be allowed is a hydraulic. The following rule will be in effect.

Camshaft-Hydraulic camshaft only. No roller camshafts allowed must pull (15in) of vacuum at 1000 RPM’ s. Must have access to vacuum port in manifold. No 4-7 swaps.

191 Rules Against Passing Points

After much consideration, we have decided not to do passing points for the 2016 season. We are still tossing the idea around of all drivers drawing for heat race starting position but will make a final decision at a later date.
