2) The X30 class has been dropped for lack or entrants.

3) At the request of Margay and the Ignite Masters competitors, the weight for that class has been changed to 370 pounds. If you have ordered tires through us, they will be available Friday afternoon and briefly Saturday morning next to the fuel trailer. You must have gone through registration and received a ticket in order to redeem your tires. If you have not ordered Hoosier tires, there should be a limited number of sets available on a first come first served basis. You can purchase them at registration.

4) This year's Saturday night outdoor concert features Tom Kiefer, former lead singer with Cinderella, along with Lava Rock. Gates open at 7 pm. and tickets are $30. If that's too pricey there are a number of other entertainment options in the Quad-Cities.

5) There has been some inaccurate information released with respect to standings in the Triple Crown of Karting in the Briggs & Stratton 206 Heavy class. We are double-checking those figures and will post the correct standings after 2 races on our website soon and at registration.

6) If you have not yet entered, please do so soon. Go to Raceday, log in and update your driver account. This is where you provide updated address, phone number, email, transponder number, kart number, insurance carrier, as well as chassis/engine/tire data. You can do that here:
