presents the 26th



  Saturday December  30th, 2017



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 30th. 
     Again this year we will use Formula-2000 rules. If you have 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 goal of F2000 now as in the beginning is to increase participation.

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. Starting lanes are assigned randomly.
  • For a complete list of rules visit the F2000 website.
