Yes general admission is free. The only reason we have to charge a pit pass is to cover the track insurance. This place is awesome.

Please keep in  mind the USAC dirt tire rule does apply. We will not be allowing D-20's on the right side. You can run what ever you want on the left side.

If you don't have your usac safety sticker, a usac compliant safety inspection will be available to you and we will have DIRT MANIA safety stickers for your car. These should be valid for the duration of this series. If you need a safety inspection and sticker it would probably be a good idea to let a race official know as soon as possible upon arrival. LET'S GET READY TO SLING SOME DIRT.

What a great event. Wanted also to say thanks to everyone who came to race, and all that helped with running the show.  Hope we can keep the car count rising!! It was great to have someone on the mic talking about the kids, and explaining what was going on.  Can't wait for next month.

Travelling conditions to BMI look good for Saturday.  As always there is a 0% chance of precipitation on the track.  You won’t be disappointed.
