2019 RACE RULES FOR OUR DIRT OVAL TRACK

RUBBER TIRES ONLY FOR ALL CLASSES

 

Must use the stock foam insert provided with tire. Altering the insert will not be permitted in any class. One foam insert per tire only.

No tire traction additives and/or compound (aka tire sauce), Only a soft cleaner can be used for the sole purpose of cleaning the tire (ie..Simple Green). All tires must have a durometer no lower than 5 points below the original hardness. Tires will be checked with the track’s durometer and compared with a new tire which will be kept at tech. If the above rule is followed, there is no reason that a tire would change from its original firmness.

*****If it is not seen in the rules then it’s not legal *****
