Road Course Classes

These rules are subject to change. Please ask at the track for official rules.

This page contains a list of the road course classes we run at the indoor carpet track.  Depending on the actual turnout, not every class will run every time. If there is not enough turn out for a specific class and you show up with a vehicle for that class, we will merge classes together to make sure you get to run.

Simple Green, Sweep X2 Carpet compound, and Sticky Fingers only. All other traction compounds are banned. Of the three, Sticky Fingers tends to offer the best traction.
