More specifically there will be laps on the upper loop, a downhill to the lower section, followed by laps on the lower loop and then a return to the upper loop, with laps following. If you joined us last year, it will be similar with exceptional viewing areas. Qualifying for the 4400 4×4 group starts at 9am. The UTV, Stock Trail and Mod Trail classes will run their races and then the Pro 4400 4×4 class will take the track for two heat races for a combined winning time. The winner of this race will be the one to complete the set amount of laps in the fastest amount of time.
