TETHERS & SAFETY

In an effort to keep safety at the forefront of everything we do, we are requiring all cars to have tethered or hinged hoods. Anyone who has been around stock car racing long enough has seen a hood or deck lid become dislodged either from racing contact or because the hood pins were forgotten.  We all watch as the panel detaches, flies thru the air to find its landing hoping it will not hit a person or another race car.  At the very least, the race goes under caution delaying the race and the entire evening.  As stated in the rules, tethers are a required part of your safety equipment on any removable panel that is not hinged.  Tethers are to be attached to the panel by means of a ring bolt and fender washers or two (2) “sandwich” plates a minimum of 4” x 6” x 1/16” and a minimum 1/4” steel cable with a spring loaded hook or shackle devise looped around a nearby roll cage member.  Should you have questions or need assistance, please let us know.

- DRIVERS & FANS -

A GREAT OPPORTUNITY IS COMING TO WISCASSET SPEEDWAY !!

Saturday May 3rd Wiscasset Speedway is excited to welcome former 2-time NASCAR Busch Series Champion Randy Lajoie and his Safer Racer Tour. With this special program Randy and his team of experts travel around the country to local short tracks, giving seminars and equipment checks to promote safe practices in all levels of racing. Although only our Group 1 divisions will be racing on 5/3, we will make this program available for ALL of our drivers to take advantage of. Details will come soon.
Founder Randy LaJoie has been an activist in much of the safety R&D that NASCAR has conducted over recent years and would like to see these innovations transcend beyond the Top 3 NASCAR series.  Made possible by “tour sponsors”, LaJoie has created a mobile interactive unit to short tracks across America to help bring safety innovations to all levels of racing. Safer Racer Tour aspires to provide information on proper installation of all safety devices, including but not limited to, seats, seat belts, nets, head and neck restraints and padding.

LOOK WHAT’S IN RICH’S GARAGE THIS WEEK !!

We understand that there are some “PASS-style” Mods out there that aren’t running the tour. Richard Jordan has purchased one of them and is extending an invitation to others to come play at Wiscasset this summer. In an effort to provide racers a chance to race, we have added 3 “Mod exhibition” races to our 2014 schedule (May 31st, June 28th, Aug 2nd). We’ll run some laps or a race with Rich’s Modified and any others that choose to show up, and we’ll start to gage interest in doing something more for 2015. Come join the FUN !!
