Visalia, Ca. May 20, 2016 Blustery wind conditions created a different set of track conditions Friday night during point race number three at Plaza Park Raceway.  The normal three classes of micro action along with the Junior Sprints competed on the interesting 1/5 mile clay oval.

Member points have been updated

Posted 25 May 2016 in Featured News

Points are updated to reflect the 3 points races that we have had so far this season. Remember there are 2 throw away races. Points will be calculated after each race with the throw away races factored in. We will continually throw out the 2 lowest races as the season progresses so that an accurate total on the season is readily available for members to follow! In the event a driver is disqualified from a race only the points accrued prior to the main event will be calculated for that nights race. The race a driver is DQ’d in will NOT be considered as a throw away. THE POINTS FROM A DQ RACE WILL BE CALCULATED AS PART OF THE MEMBERS TOTAL POINTS. Best of luck drivers!...
