presents the 20th


  Saturday December 31st, 2011


You are invited!

     Won’t you join us this year for the race that has become a Midwest tradition? All racing will be on Saturday December 31st. 
     Again this year we will use Formula-2000 rules. If you’ve never raced with these rules you will not be disappointed. The racing is inexpensive, close and exciting, and places a little more emphasis on the skill of the driver.
     You will like the way races are run at Alpha, with even handed application of the rules, no surprises, little “wasted” time, reliable track power and lap counter, and few track calls. **Beat any of the class records and get a $50 merchandise bonus!

Formula 2000 Rules…

Formula 2000 rules are designed to promote high-speed racing but with lower cost, effort, & increased reliability.

The features of Formula-2000 racing are...

  • Spray Glue
  • No motor changing. The maximum number of motors you would need is two. (One for the qualifying race & one for the main event.)
  • Only two magnets are allowed per motor. (No 4,6,8,10 etc. magnet motors)
  • Minimum weight:  The minimum weight for Spec 15 is 73 grams, Box Stock 12 is 72 grams, Cobalt 12 is 50 grams, and minimum weights for Group 27, and Group 7 cars is 52 grams.
  • Only solid steel axles are allowed. (No hollow, filled or lightweight materials.)
  • There is no qualifying. If there are more racers than can be handled with a main (or round robin) each driver will pick a starting lane for a qualifying race at random.  If the number of entries can be handled with a main or round robin only, then there are no qualifying races and only one motor will be allowed.
