Valve Cover Racing
This is an event where everyone has a fun time. Get a valve cover, four wheels, and with a little ingenuity join in the fun. A feature of the racing event is the double elimination scoring. When a car loses a race, that car later races another car that also lost a race. The car that loses a race the second time is then eliminated from completion. This method allows the owner of a race car that lost the first race, time to go to the pit area and make adjustments to service his car and try again. It also gives the owner of a “slower” car the opportunity to run in at least two competitive races on the track. We also have beauty contest for those who are not "competitive" on the track.
If you want to participate with your valve cover, you'll need a number. Some of our members already have numbers but if you don't, go to this page and fill out our easy form to obtain your racing number.
