Anyways, its a 30.00 entry, for a $1195.00 payout. Located in Centerville, AR just south of Russellville AR. Would love to have ya'll join us to compete or watch. You can vistit for address and more info though I dont think there is much on there, I can give you run down of rules and classes though based on a fwd 4banger, though if you have AWD, V6, RWD PM me or chat in the Arkansas chat cause Im copying this to many state chats. We already have 5 confirmed states people coming from.

If your car runs faster than 11.25 in the 1000' must bring and wear a helmet, track doesnt rent them and nobody will share, lol. I think if you run say 1/4 faster than 13.85 bring helmet, they recommend everyone to wear one. This track doesnt have helmet rules so ATV helmets work. No cage rules, though no wheelie bars, and must have at least 1 working taillight and headlight. See ya there!
