This year, all Briggs and Yamaha drivers (except Ignite) must purchase one set of spec Hoosier tires through the Grand Prix for $195/set. Other classes remain open tire rule.

There have also been other rules adjustments so, as always, we encourage you to review in detail the Supplemental Rules which are posted on our website.

Once again this year Briggs & Stratton Racing is generously supporting our Briggs racers by paying $100 of the entry fee on the second B&S class entered. This discount is available to the first 30 registrants only (one to a customer). When you register, choose the class with the $125 entry fee for your first entry and the class with the $25 entry fee for your second entry. Additional entries should then be made at the $125 rate. The $25 entry option will disappear once the 30 discounted entries have been claimed.
