Weekly Divisions

Super Late Models – Purpose built dirt Late Models are aluminum, full bodied race cars generating 800+ horsepower running on 12″ racing tires and burning 110+ octane racing fuel or alcohol. Arguably the most popular form of dirt track racing in North America.

Super Modified – Open Wheel Modifieds must incorporate a stock American made front clip frame. Aluminum bodies, 450+ horsepower on 8″ racing tires and burning 110+ octane racing fuel or alcohol. This division’s unique style, affordability and standardized rules make it a popular choice for veteran weekend warriors and young racers on the rise.

Pro Trucks – Any GM, Ford or Dodge full size regular cab pickup (rear wheel drive), aluminum full body, stock engine with 2bbl carburetor running on 8″ street or racing tires. A great stepping stone for a driver moving up from a stock class on his/her way towards the ultimate goal of wheeling a Late Model.

Factory Stocks – This is an entry level stock class. Gut a stock car, install a roll cage and all related safety equipment, stock engine, stock 2bbl carburetor, stock exhaust and 8″ street or racing tires and your ready to start your racing career.
