News from the WISSOTA Banquet:
I’m sure by now most have seen or heard about the Annual WISSOTA Meeting and the changes that came from it.  By and large most of the changes to existing classes were expected.  Namely the crate motors passing as well as what are being called the Concept Engines.  Concept engines are essentially a way for engine builders to provide an engine comparable in price and performance to the crate engines.  Four barrel carburetors, after market components, an RPM limit and so forth.  For more details check out the WISSOTA Website (click here).

The unexpected change was the addition of the Hornets and the Pure Stocks to WISSOTA’s list of classes.  The classes are 100% optional as far as tracks like us adopting the rules, and we are exercising our option to not sanction them.  To be clear – our bombers are not going to be WISSOTA sanctioned.  The WISSOTA class allows shorter wheelbases, no restrictor plates, less stringent roll cage and safety rules, things that we are not open to compromise on.  Again, more information will be posted to the WISSOTA website with more details.

Other offseason news:

2015 Race Schedule
We’ll soon start working on our 2015 race schedule – setting dates for specials, arranging sponsors, and so forth.  If you’re interested in being a part of the speedway next year as a nightly sponsor, a signboard sponsor, have an idea for special event or fun activity please let us know.  We’d be glad to work with you.

Speednet, Transponders, & Track Prep Help Wanted
We’re on the lookout for additional help with running our Speednet & Transponder computers, as well as someone interested in learning how to hand score races.  Training will be provided.

Website Contributors
Lastly just a note to encourage anyone who may be interested in having a platform to write a story about racing, share a cool YouTube video of your summer racing memories, post pictures, or any of that sort of thing.  If you have a Jamestown Speedway related story, video, pictures, etc. we’d love to post it up and liven up this place!
