    Concord Speedway Asphalt Racing returns March 31st

    Hey Everyone!

    Just wanted to send out a PSA that we will be racing at Concord Speedway on March 31st, April 7th, April 14th, April 21st, and May 12th at the 1/4 mile track (we run the smaller loop in the infield). The gates open at 4:30 and they typically have a few practice sessions that begin around 5:30 pm and alternate throughout the night with the Bando's and Legends. We do one heat race to determine qualifying order and then the main race is 25 laps (usually around 8:45-9:30 starting time). It's a really fun series with people who just like to race and Concord Speedway does a really great job with moving the night along on schedule. As of right now we will not do a pay out, but we will be awarding a kart jacket to the spring champion. We're running out-of-box predator 212 motors and we would really like to get the kart count up. Please visit our Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/Karting-at-Co...6070767070929/ for more updates. We just pay the pit fee, which is $35, and you get two practice sessions, a heat race and the main. If you have any questions just post below and i'll try to answer the best I can. Hope to see you guys out there!

    Here’s a few more rules on the out-of-box predator 212:
    1) The engine must be ran out of the box
    2) The governor must be connected and operational
    3) The air filter and sock must be installed per factory.
    4) The engine must have a key way as installed by factory on the flywheel
    5) The engine must pass a governor test on the stand if asked 5500 max
    6) You may disconnect vent tube on tank
    7) You may disconnect throttle stop screw
    8) You must run the factory gas tank
    9) You can only bolt on a chain guard , no other aftermarket parts allowed
    10) You can disconnect wire used for oil sensor and tape it
    11) You can drill holes in the gas cap to vent the tank
    12) NO Dyno Cam versions of the Predator Motor, if you are found to have this you will be DQ’d.

    We are leaning towards running a 400 pound minimum weight since there is currently only one class, if we get more Karts on the track we can run two classes.

    This is an open tire class (people usually run yellow Vegas or pink/blue maxxis, I’ve seen Dunlops and Hoosiers as well).

    No rule on which clutch to use.

    You need a claimer rule most tracks are $140 anyone in the race can claim any motor in the field and if you get caught cheating you will be banned from the Predator class Tech man can look at minimum parts Tech man gets $20 of the climber money need to keep something like this in play

    IMHO claim rule should include : driver claiming has to have run the previous 3 races at that track, has to have started and finished the race in which he wants to file claim has to have finished 4th or back to claim and only 1st 2nd & 3rd can be claimed, in the event several drivers want to claim #s go in a hat and worst finisher draws first among those wanting to claim... only those drawing 1 2 &3 get to claim in that order.... you can only claim 1x after 3 consecutive races and not more than 2x a season...
    This is close to what IMCA did... keeps out engine collectors... keeps buddies from claiming each other every week and swapping back when they get home... just to have some limits in place...
