UPDATE: Oct 3rd

We are officially changing our track layout for the 2014 Fall Classic. We are doing a very deep till of our clay, something we have never done with large equipment before. This should ensure a great sticky surface for our upcoming event and a layout that will be challenging for all in attendance. Track is closed Oct. 13th-18th.

Also, we have just started to receive our goodies from our sponsors for this years race. If you attended the last fall classic you know we like to GIVE AWAY a lot of stuff! I will update you as more of this start to come in.
