Rules for the event will follow the Shangri-La II and/or Race of Champions rulebooks. Tires cannot be any harder than 1070’s or any softer than 1040’s.

Lap money is being collected for the Sportsman, Street Stock, Late Model and Four Cylinder divisions. In order to be eligible for the lap money, the car must be pre-registered. Pre-registration will not only save the teams money, but will allow the track to increase the purse based upon the number of pre-entered cars. Pre-registration is for the car only. If a car does not pre-register and wants to become eligible for lap money, the team can “buy in” by paying double the car entry fee listed for the day of the event.
Car Entry Fees are as follows: RoC Modifieds - $45.00 up to September 20th, $80.00 after September 20th. Late Models - $ 45.00 up to September 20th, $80.00 after September 20th.
