Once registered, any driver that wishes to cancel will need to contact the speedway office at (608) 687-3282 one week prior to the event. Drivers on the waiting list will have first option to fill in any cancellations. All cars in both divisions will be required to run the American Racer G60 racing tire. This will be the only tired allowed for this event and both classes will be allowed to grind, groove and sipe tires. Be prepared to be teched as we will do everything we can to catch anybody cheating. We will have extra tech people on staff for this event. We will retain the right to hold checks for anyone in the top five each night for a period of up to two weeks if we suspect any tire softening. This will allow for tire samples to be taken and tested if necessary. Mississippi Thunder Speedway reserves the right to amend these as we see fit to maintain an even playing field.
