[07/02/19]   For the rest of the season we are mandating that all haulers must be in the infield we are having too many problems with no pit passes in outside pits and If someone was to get hurt without a wristband on in the pit area we would be shut down immediately. There is parking for tall haulers ONLY marked out in the pits. We are asking of those tall haulers being brought back in that no one stands on top of them because it obstructs the fans view.

This week we will also be making up the ROC race for the Modifieds. We thank you for understanding and hope to see everyone at the track!
