These are difficult times, but we have some great news!

Our board of directors has decided to move forward with our event at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Friday and Saturday July 17-18!
This will be our first event for 2020. Due to social distancing regulations and guidelines we will not be able to offer in-car instruction, and this event will be for COMSCC licensed drivers only.

To further ensure the safety and enjoyment for all members, we are limiting this event to 75 participants.
