The points have been updated, and you can check them out here. Note that for the Rookie Sportsman class, the points for March are still under review.
Our June race will be a combined practice day and night race. Practice will be from 10:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., and then the race will be from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. These two activities will be separate. You don't have to practice in order to race, and you don't have to race if you just come out to practice. This will be the perfect opportunity for non-racers to bring their karts out for a little home-town practice on a long (approximately 1 mile) track. All karts must pass our standard safety inspection before taking to the track.
Track setup will occur between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., and as always, volunteer help is greatly appreciated. Registration for practice and racing will open at 9:00 a.m.
Practice will cost $25.00, and is separate from any race entries. We will use different colored bands for practice and racing. Depending on the turnout, we will run in rotating groups, session lengths of 15 to 20 minutes. Please remember that PRACTICE IS PRACTICE - NO RACING! We may have mixed classes on the track at the same time, so all drivers must be courteous and careful. The final practice session will end at 2:30 p.m., when we will have the drivers' meeting. If you have any questions regarding practice, please call Doug Ring at 858-243-8558 or Eric Brucker at 619-312-7883.
Racing will start at 3:00 p.m. with our normal schedule of two practice sessions, qualifying, two heat races, and one main race. Our plan is to have the final race finish sometime between 10:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.; this will depend on any delays we have during the race day.
For those of you that have never night raced -- you are in for a treat! Remember to bring a clear shield, which is absolutely necessary after sundown. A floodlight or two may be helpful for your pit area, but please keep your noisy/dirty generator at home -- we have a small pit area, so let's watch out for each other. If you have any questions about night racing, please call Doug or Eric.
The BBQ guy will be on-site for both lunch and dinner, so please stop by and let's get him some business.
ATTENTION: ALL BIKE RACERS
All bikes, vintage motorcycles and scooters are welcome to race with SDKA. Show up on race day and we'll make time in the schedule for all bikes and, if enough of you come to race, we can break you up into classes. You will get more track time than your body can take!
WE HAVE A FEW CLASS SPONSORSHIPS AVAILABLE
For the ridiculously low price of $250, you can sponsor one of our classes. You will get your logo on the top of our Home and Schedule pages, your logo will be listed on our Sponsors page, and your name engraved on the championship trophies awarded at the annual banquet. You will also have the right to display your banner or sign at the track on race day. Contact Bob Legate if you are interested in sponsoring a class this year.
