Car Numbers for our Regular Racers -- all karts must be CLEARLY numbered


Last years Car #'s with their drivers will be GRANDFATHERED in for this 2014 year. You will have until the 2nd week of racing, *May 9 and 10* to register your number. *subject to change for the date (depends on the weather) To see car #'s go to the Results Page in your class and check them out. Too many to list here.


No fractions or more than three (3) digits will be allowed unless otherwise pre-approved. Numbers will be assigned on a first come first served paid basis (except for the grandfathered in numbers - see above). Duplicate numbers are not allowed. We will not allow more than two (2) of the same number in the same class even when differentiating letters are used. It is very difficult for the scorers to properly score races where several karts have the same number (or similar numbers). Remember this when considering a number for your kart. A number will be displayed on EACH side panel no less then 6" high. A SOLID COLOR number no less then 4" high will be displayed on the driver's right side of the nosepiece AND rear of the kart. Numbers must be visible from 50 feet.


LETTERING: All lettering and numbering is to be neatly arranged and appear to be professionally painted and printed. Numbers must be legible and the style should be easy to read from the grandstand area. Numbers need to be on BOTH sides of the kart. The color of the numbers should contrast well with the color of the kart. Scorers maintain the right to request changes to the appearance of the numbers on a kart to aid in scoring. No spray painted lettering or numbers. If you number is not properly displayed on your kart or is not readable from the scorer's tower, YOU WILL NOT BE SCORED. NO rude or profane message will be permitted. These must be covered or removed prior to entry onto the track. Failure to comply will result in being asked to leave the premises.
