Sorry I thought you bought a 3 day pass. Lm Racing, everyone was bitching all Friday long about not getting a refund when they emailed everyone a letter.

Winchester VA   8100 to win 600 to start.  No entry fee.  Doubt they will pull any Midatlantic / Central PA cars

Does anyone know how many laps and what the entry fee is? I cant seem to find it anywhere.
I know the Red Miley race is 35 laps but it doesnt state what this race is.
I did see the tire rule but nothing else is stated on PPMS web site or Facebook page.
Should be good racing.

Doesn't this series charge a sky high entry fee of like $100+ for these average paying races? Plus no point fund.

The question was about entry fees.  Doesn't/didn't FASTRAK have a sliding scale; the entry fee was based on the payout?  I imagine they operate the same way.

 

This is from the press release on the OP: 

 

 ULTIMATE NE Competitor Membership is not required for the 2017 season, and no point fund will be paid. 


If at first you don't succeed, then maybe you just suck.

Gotcha, yeah I just pulled that from their website and I agree it's old data.  I dont know then, nothing I read says there is an entry fee and nothing says there isn't!

I think I need new eyes. Dam 101 wild turkey is making me go blind. 400 to start for the Pittsburgher, 110 if 24 cars.  Elkins and Winchester  are going to keep guys close to those area's. I think you are going to see some crate guys show up. Hope they get a decent turn out...

Ultimate tire rule is going to hurt in this area. No one owns 1350's.

Their rule books says this for race entry fees

 

 

ENTRY FEES

Entry fee $105.   $5 goes towards tire lab testing.

 

Just what our area needs.  $105 entry fee for a $3,000 to win race........That should really make car counts boom again.

I like how the series is advertising drivers that are not even coming.

I know Michael Lake will be at Elkins when I last talked to Bobby. Unless the weather changes their plans he will not be at the ultimate race.
