Maine Bureau of Highway Special Feature Night at Spud Speedway Practice Schedule for August 10th Pits Open at 2:30 Grandstands open at 5:00PM 3:00-4:00 Open Practice for all classes 4:00-4:10 Northern Lights & Challenger 4:10-4:20 Fast Fours & Street Stocks 4:20-4:30 Outlaw Sportsman 4:30-5:00 Open Practice All Classes 5:00-5:30 Kart Practice 5:25-5:35 Driver’s Meeting 5:50 Race line up Race Schedule Races start @ 6:00pm All Races Count tonight! The finish will be determined by the best average finish of all 3 events of the night. We will start each class by points standings, the second race starting position will be determined by the finish of the first race and the third race starting position will be determined by the finish of the second race. In all cases the field will be fully inverted so the winner starts in the rear of the field each race. Remember that the finishes count in each race to determine a winner so there will be no sand bagging. The winner will be determined by the lowest point total, for example: a racer finishes 2nd in all 3 races he would have a total of 6 points, another racer finishes 1st in 2 races and 5th in the third race and has a point total of 7 points, this would mean the racer that had three 2nd place finishes wins the overall event for the night. In the event of a tie in points the racer that finishes highest in the 20 lap feature will be determined the winner. 2 races - 10 Laps each Kart Heats –Kids Class (5 laps), Jr. Champ, Sr. Champ (10 laps) Aroostook Trusses Northern Lights Challenger Series (Bomber Cars Allowed to race in Challenger Class this weekend) Street Stocks Percy's Auto Sales Fast Fours Coca Cola Outlaw Sportsman Features 20 Laps each Kart Feature Races – Kids Kart (7 laps), Jr. Champ Kart, Sr. Champ Kart (15 laps) Aroostook Trusses Northern Lights Challenger Series (Bomber Cars Allowed to race in Challenger Class this weekend) Street Stocks Percy's Auto Sales Fast Fours Coca Cola Outlaw Sportsman 25 laps
