    Michigan Kart Club’s M.I.S. Fall Classic, Sept. 6 & 7  is a “can’t miss” event.  Two miles of smooth asphalt, including the infield road course, a meticulously maintained facility, on a race weekend that fits the national schedule quite nicely.  If top speed is what you’re after, this is the place.  Unlimited’s topped 146 MPH last year.   Garages available.  Pre-Entry discounts at http://michkartclub.com/2014-m-i-s-event/. Register Online.

    Special Note: The M.I.S. Fall Classic is sanctioned by WKA, and follows WKA Rules with local option classes, and uses WKA Insurance.  This is not a WKA National Points race or Regional race.  We therefore require a Minors’ Release for Minor Drivers to be filled out, and signed at the Entry Gate, where pit passes are sold, and again at Race Registration. We understand that WKA membership cards indicate that a minor driver may have a waiver on file, but we cannot honor that card information at this event.
    For your convenience, a copy of the waiver form is available on the MKC web site and may be printed out, IN COLOR, notarized, and be submitted by a minor at the track in case that minor’s parent or guardian is unable to attend the event.
    If you have any further questions, please contact me.

    Thanks

    Do you know if they are going to have race monitor up and running for this event?

    Bill,

    Will we need a current WKA license?

    If so, will MKC offer the “weekend pass”?

    No need for a WKA license.  The event is neither a National Points Race nor a Regional race.

    Buy a pit pass, enter a class, pass safety tech, and you are ready.  We will follow the WKA rulebook for most classes when it comes to ages, weight, and engine specifications. There are local option classes based on kart combinations most racers are familiar with.

    Thanks Bill.

    With the facility so close to home it is high on the priority list. Once again we should have our sponsor visiting and hope for good weather.

    I know Kenny has already secured the garage and we are very much looking forward to MIS again this year!!!!!!!

    In response to the request by the F125 guys to race twice on Saturday ( race in both F125 and Unlimited), the schedule has been readjusted so they don’t have to run back to back.

    We will adjust Sunday schedule later if needed.

    Check the MKC web site http://www.michkartclub.com for updated schedule information relative to this issue.

    Bill,

    It’s evident you guys are working hard to get this event the proper attention. I got a flier in my parts box from CKS Saturday!!!!! :) Don at LAD said he has also been packing them in orders, good job from all involved in the effort to help get the proportionate numbers this facility deserves.

    Hope to see a LARGE turn out this year!!!!!!

    Just a quick tip for those looking in…..

    Getting an “RV” spot with power and H2O is a great way to go, and its a good value for $20. Best part is its located to the far left of the designated area (see paddock map) and the push to pit lane is really not very far.

    I’ll be in line early to get a good spot. ;)

    Hard to understand the lack of “buzz” around this here on EKN.

    This is a 2 mile oval, a Superspeedway!

    Were fortunate to get this opportunity, anyone in the tri-state area (MI, OH, IN) should be making plans to attend. The rooftop view from the pit lane terrace is fantastic for spectating.

    Were local, kinda, so its a bit different in our case but I’m trying to get as many friends and co workers to come out and just take it all in. Even told them I’d provide lunch if they buy a pass and spend an afternoon looking around. Got to get new folks involved people, it really is up to us to invest a few bucks for the future of our hobby. Hot dogs, chips & sodas are cheap and easy enough for anyone to spread out for some friends. Get um out there, show some hospitality, beat up their senses with speed and fumes, and they will talk about it all week. You may get lucky and find a new racin buddy and we all get the benefit of having more people involved!

    In it’s 3rd year I hope we get a good size turnout, not just for the sake of the MKC but for all of us in this region that love to RR.

    Looking forward to this event. I have had a great time the last 2 years and ran really well both times too. Unfortunately both times had silly things knock my out of the races while in front or near front, so hopefully things can stay together this year.

    Robert, I agree that the lack of buzz on this event seems weird but there seems to be a general lack of buzz on EKN. There was hardly any posts on Mid Ohio and that was the WKA GN, but there was still a pretty good turn out. Not sure if EKN lost a lot of people when they switched formats or if people just aren’t posting. Hopefully lots of people show up and we have some big grids.
