TEAM SCORING POSTED!

Posted: February 27, 2015 by mmelley in News/Updates, Racing

Team Scoring is now available.  We had to lock in the rosters, which as any team captain can attest to, is no small task.  The team scoring is tight, especially in the Big Ring field, which is great for racing.  We ask that you continue to exude the utmost sportsmanship and have a great racing season.  There will be a team captains meeting at White Tanks, it is highly recommended that the team captain or a representative from your team is present.  We will answer any questions regarding the season and ensure everyone is on the same page.

CAPTAINS meeting – White Tanks Saturday, March 7 – 2:15pm – strongly recommended that a representative is present.
