AGE LIMITS WILL BE FOLLOWED.  TO RACE ANY SENIOR CLASSES, DRIVERS MUST BE 15 YEARS OF AGE.

Jan 1 of race year determines youngest age.
Example: Driver is 9 on Jan 1.  Turns 10 on Jan 2, Driver can race Green Clone or Purple Clone.

We ask you, as the parent, make the correct call in determining your child’s skill level when registering for a class. The track will have final say.  If we determine a child is not a fit for the class he or she is registered for, we will ask that you move them up or down.  The junior classes are LEARNING classes.  If a child is a safety risk, we will work with you to get them into the right class.  We understand some children are “older” rookies.  Sometimes we may need to move them or start them in a lower class than their age may dictate, but as we see them advance and excel, we can move up the ladder until they reach the right age class.  Our #1 goal is safety of all the drivers, but our 2nd goal is that our junior drivers are having fun out there!

2018 Changes:

Moving from Junior to Senior – Drivers must reach the age of 15 by JULY 1 of the race year to qualify.  Previous senior drivers will be grandfathered in, however, with the addition of the 300 Clone Class we had to add this rule.  The 300 Clone class will stay only if there is ample interest by drivers 15 years of age and older.  We want everyone to have a class to race in WITHOUT taking away from the other classes that we have had at the track since inception!
