presents the 26th
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!
