AND TUNE PHOTOS
A note about Test and Tune
The weekly Test
and Tune Sessions are a great way to get unlimited seat time in your
car or on your Bike/ATV. Plus it is the suggested way for kids that
are running in TCR, Jr Dragster or JR ATV to get needed experience.
You have 6 full hours to try every combination of starting line
staging and shift points. Just ask the pros like Big Dan Swank,
Glenn Seward and Leonard Long. They'll be the first to tell you that
it's the best $35 they spend to insure they're sharp. A real special
bonus is the kid's. JR Dragster, JR ATV and TCR only pay $10. Also
on Test and Tune the track is fully sprayed and StugarT Racing has
shop services and fuel available. And always remember that
there is no charge for spectators to attend plus the concession is
serving up great food.
Test and Tune:
A great way to spend a Saturday
