Solo II events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver’s ability and the car’s handling characteristics.
This is accomplished by driving a course that is designated by traffic cones on a low hazard location, such as a parking lot or inactive airstrip.
While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered in legal highway driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback creates an adrenaline pumping experience.
Events
You’ll need a safe car, seat belts, an effective muffler, and an approved helmet (Snell 2005 or newer). Some loaner helmets will be available.
Majestic Star Hotel & Casino
On site registration 8:30 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.

Making the rounds again are the "click bait" articles on the EPA stealing your race cars. The Internet brings with it the ability to research for facts, ( which are often buried in propaganda ). The current status is a bill being introduced to congress to exempt competition vehicles. It will likely pass as the exemption has been in place for decades. Bottom line the feds ARE NOT coming for your racecar. You can follow the bill here. https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/4715/text
