  • The PA system strategy has been revised.  We will NOT use the conventional PA system for announcements due to cost and acoustics issues.  We WILL broadcast PA announcements on the FM radio band, tentatively at 87.5 Mhz.  You need to bring an FM portable radio or device with FM capability with you to hear announcements.  A limited number of battery operated radios will be rented for use at the track.  You can reserve one during the Pre-Entry process.  Your car radio will be able to pick up the broadcast also.

This year we are pleased to offer a  $5 MIS discount to members.  We are taking all Pre-Entry Registrations online again this year.  You may either pay by PayPal/Credit Card or send us payment in U.S. mail.
