ROK Sonoma presented by Sanzaru Gearing up for Round Three

ROK Sonoma Race #3 will headline the Master ROK Shifters as the Feature class on the Pro National track layout. Will Patrick O’Neill repeat his first place spot on the podium for the third time? Jim Inglebright, Michael Guasch, and Kevin Woods are battling to take over. But with over 22 drivers in the field, things can quickly change. These Masters will be the class to watch throughout the day.

Effective immediately ROK Sonoma presented by Sanzaru will introduce a new option for Tires, Fuel, and Oil. After listening to feedback from multiple teams and drivers we wanted to come up with a plan to aid all competitors to reduce costs in certain situations, this is aimed primarily at assisting competitors who wish to run multiple events on the same tires. We also needed to have a solution that continued to help cover the operating expenses of the series.

As always, we will have the required tires, fuel, and oil available for purchase at Registration. All tires will be marked “SKC” as we did last year and at Race 2. If a competitor chooses not to buy new tires, he MUST run on previously marked “SKC” tires in Qualifying and races. Fuel and oil will also be teched. At registration, Competitors are offered the option to buy “SKC” marked Tires, Fuel, and Oil. If none of these options are selected, then a surcharge will be added to the entry fee on the following fee schedule; No Tires $20 No Fuel $8 No Oil $3

If any competitor has used tires that were purchased at Race 2 and they are not marked, please take them to Tech for inspection and marking before Qualifying
