Yes-- the cat is out of the bag.......We will have a speed run in the United States-- on Oct 4th!
We will use ROSSA rules & an Optical Speed trap. This is going to be a blast!
I understand North Carolina is very nice in Oct.
We have a lot of support from sponsors. Thanks to Billy Weeks for handling the race director/Promoter duties...
