  • Governor: Governor gear, arm and linkage must remain intact and functional. Track may require engine to be free revved on the stand to a certain RPM to determine if governor is properly functioning. (5500 rpm max for example) It has been our findings that some engines surge and some will not. We do not require the surge because in stock form the engine will perform best at 5000 rpm or less.
  • Gas Tank: Stock tank should be removed and an auxiliary tank mounted in the floor pan should be used. A top plate and fuel pump are allowed with the pump be pulsed off the valve cover only. The vent tube can be unplugged and up to 4 - 1/8” holes in the fuel cap for venting.

  • There is no longer a claimer rule. The engine in question must be protested by a competitor or subject to tech by the track if the promotor/tech deems necessary. The protest fee will be $150 and acceptance fee will be $50. If the protested engine is found to
    be illegal, the protested driver will forfeit the $50.
  • If there is any doubt as to the legality of any part on a Ducar 212 engine, the competitor has the right to file a protest with the track/official. The part in question can then be shipped to DynoCams for review. Please include contact information for the promotor and we will contact the promotor with our findings on the legality of the part in question in a timely manner.

Uh OH!!! Did he just do that??!?!?!?!?!?

Not only are you required to purchase your tires at the track for the two $3,000 to win All Pro Classes, we will also impound your tires.

How it will work. After you complete your 2nd round of practice for the All Pro Classes and you come to the scale area, you will be required to remove your tires and wheels. We will keep them until qualifying. We will give you 10 minutes to be in the grid to qualify. We will again impound your tires after qualifying and return them prior to the $3k race. You will again have 10 minutes to be in the grid to race. The grid WILL CLOSE after 10 minutes so all racers will need to make sure you are ready!!

We are doing this to take the tire game out of the equation and put it in the kart and drivers hands to win the race!!

LETS GET IT DUDE!!
