At this time no. Doesn't mean it won't happen but as of right now NO...There will be no race/pit/entry fee's to the racers unless they are not ARMA members and want to run the sanctioned class races. They must be ARMA members.

Sounds like you may have some Kansas Outlaws coming  if I can talk Nic into it  thumbsup but by the sounds of it should'nt be hard. I am also building a new chassis from a TRU-TEST mower. It has a flat square pan with all fiberglass body LIGHT. Maybe it will be done by then with the BIG INDIAN on it OH and so far the engine is running awesome has anyone else raced one yet.

Come one come all.... Everyone is welcome and everyone is invited. Two days of racing.... 2 rounds Qualifying heats on Saturday, Saturday night we will sit around the BON Fire and bench race, roast hot dogs and what have ya. FELLOWSHIP. No race fee's. Anyone racing the sanctioned classes must be an ARMA member, which can be done at the race during registration. Then if that ain't enough you can  enter the outlaw races also. We will run two classes of outlaws Single Cylinders and Twins. Driver and TWO will get into the pits free. All others will pay a 5 dollar pit entrance fee. Someone will go home crowned an ALL American Mower Champion in each class. Counting the 2 outlaw classes we will have 11 classes of racing. Last year we had 7o something mowers. This year I expect it to be even bigger. Track will be smooth and fast with 210 foot straights.

The Hard Case Racing boys will be there with two Super Stocks and two Super Sportsmans (maybe a Mod-X too).  We want to see how the Big Kohlers stack up with the Indians. With staights that big we can see just how tight they'll wind.
