Racers ~ Annual Inspection Must Be Completed
Each car set to compete in wheel to wheel racing must submit to an annual safety inspection. This inspection can be performed at any time, but for convenience our Technical Inspector Joe Griffin will be available on March 28 and April 4 to perform these inspections. Joe will be located in the tech building and will be able to go to the various garages. Please have your personal gear available for inspection as well, as the annual inspection sticker cannot be provided without it.
