It's going to be another exciting year! For the second year in a row, Midwest Stangs is inviting all enthusiasts to join MAM and Midwest Stangs for TWO FULL DAYS of road course driving and Drag Racing! For only $120 per person, you will receive classroom instruction with road course "MAM Certification" license, several hours of driving on the road course and several hours on the drag strip! This road course certification will allow you ongoing access to the road course "Fast Friday" program and is normally a $195 value by itself! Following the road course instruction lunch will be served in the patio area. Bring out your friends and family for this weekend of fun so that they can watch you with envy.

Begin promptly at 10:30am with classroom instruction by PCA Certified Instructors. Attendees will receive road course "MAM Certification" license after about 60 minutes of instruction. This certification will allow the participant ongoing access to the Road Course "Fast Friday" program. Then lunch will be served in the patio area. Participants will run in groups, spaced appropriately for safety. After assessment of skills by track staff, controlled "wheel to wheel" competition may be allowed. The road course will close at about 3:00pm, where everyone will move on to the Drag Racing to try and win some prize money. If you choose to participate in the Bracket Racing you will need to pre-purchase the Tech Card.

Sunday will be an open lap format in groups of 20 cars starting at approximately 11:00am and will run until 4:00pm. At 4:00pm we will have a special "Australian Chase" competition allowing drivers to test skills, set benchmarks and win trophies. At the conclusion of the day a complementary BBQ will be served to all participants and trophies will be awarded.

So that we can remain as a group, all vehicles will pit together on the backstretch of the road course.  Drags will be run as part of the regularly-scheduled bracket race.  First test and tune for dial-in starts at 3:30-4:00pm.  We will then run as our own club class in the Summit ET Bracket Race with 4 other regular classes.  Trophies will be awarded to winner and runner-up of every class. An 80% payout/20 car minimum, guaranteed $200/$100/$50$50. Buybacks will be allowed at $10. Participants that have been eliminated will still have an opportunity to make test and tune runs between classes. The event should end at approximately 11pm.  The event will follow posted track rules for ET Bracket Events. Test and Tune runs will be allowed during cool-downs between classes later in the Summit ET Bracket Race.  Based on this format, you will be able to get lots of runs in on a very well prepped track with full Rolling Thunder Staff, and if you are lucky...maybe even take home a trophy!

All groups get 4:50 of lap time or about 150 laps, or 330 miles on the circuit.

This message is going out to all individuals already registered for track day.  Just a quick update and request for assistance.  We are about 2 weeks away from our deadline to fill the event.  We still need 17 people to register and pay to do the road course.  If we cannot get 17 more people to register by the end of the month (April 30th) we will be forced to cancel the event this year and issue refunds.  Please help spread the word.  If you have a friend who is on the fence, please encourage them to sign up.  This is definitely not something they will want to miss this year.  Also, please emphasize that this event is not limited to Mustangs…it is open to all makes/models.  We’ve gotten a ton of questions about that.  Appreciate help from you all!

I signed up. I am a little nervous but am more excited. I've done plenty of track days on my bike so I think I know what to expect. Now I need to install my brembos...
