Race Info:

Riders must compete in at least 4 races to be eligible for the overall prize list. In the event of a tie the rider placing highest at the Series Final will be deemed the winner. If a tie still exists the winner will be determined according to USAC rules. The USAC official’s results from the individual races will be used to determine the MSG Series points. Racers must pick which category the wish to be scored for in the over all IE: Cat3 or Masters. You can’t be eligible for the over all in both categories, although you can race in more than one category.

Racers will have the same number throughout the Series. There will be a $3.00 number replacement fee! Do not lose or forget your number. Numbers will be assigned at the first race you attend.
