By popular request, we have extended our Thanksgiving weekend sale to include the whole week of Thanksgiving, Mon. thru Sat., Nov 24th-29th.

Rules changes appear to be minor for most classes, so maybe this is the year to update that safety equipment or freshen up the drivetrain. Now is the time to give the family your X-mas racing wish list, or that parts list for your first off-season upgrade project. Discounts are still 5-15% off everything in the store, as well as special discounts on special order items and the used consignment parts. We would like to thank you for all your past support and hope to see you soon, so come in early if you’re traveling and stay safe.
