MudBoss–New but limited race schedule
As in years past, we provide an excellent racing venue and set the rules packages. Our weekly racers determine which classes are actually supported and run on a regular basis. So if you like a certain class, than be sure to first show up to run the class and also promote it to your racing buddies.
Remainder: For a class to be recognized in the 2018 points series and eligible to receive point series plaques at the end of the season, the class must race at least 80% of the scheduled points races throughout the season and at least six different drivers must have raced at least three times in that class’s points races.
