Friday Practice Remains Intact For Speedway Pavement Series

02.19.2009 - As efforts continue to trim costs to the competitor across the board, one segment of the weekend's activities for the Rage Karts Speedway Pavement Series will remain the same. Beginning with the Hodge Racing Supply Nationals April 3-5 at OCR Action Sports Park in Rougemont, North Carolina, the traditional Friday Practice for the series competitors will continue, in preparation for their first national event of the new year.

While trimming days activities would conceivably save the competitor financially, the recent announcement regarding the 2009 tire rule has many competitors already feeling a huge savings in a tough economic year, with the vast majority voting to retain a full days practice on race weekends.

Practice for the 23 national points classes will get underway Friday morning October 3 at 9am, culminating at 4pm. To view the OCR Entry Blank, go to www.worldkarting.com/pg/series/ps/ps-main.html.

The Dunlop 450-5 tire must be DDM . Competitors that utilized the Firestone YFA tire in 2008 will also be able to utilize that compound for the series first race as well.
