With the USRA Wing Nats @ Chicagoland Raceway in 2020 we are going to hold regular wing car races. There will also be a Retro Class each time for those that wish to join the fun.

 

First Race as follows:

 

Sunday, November 24th.

Doors Open 9:30 AM

Races start 10:00 - 10:30 AM

 

Classes:

 

Wing: Group F and FK-12

Retro: CanAm

 

There will be some time between the wing & retro race to do some test & tuning for other wing car classes such as One Motor Box, C12,27L etc.

 

Down the road we will be racing One Motor Box and perhaps C12 & 27L on a rotating basis.

 

The goal is to be done by 3:00-3:30Pm so please try to be on time and have your stuff ready to go! Thanks

Since FK12 is a local class are shunt wires legal ? And can the can holes be opened up ala RickyD ?

Hi Phil,
Yes shunts are allowed in FK-12 so run what you have. At first there will be little or no tech but as we get into 2020 we will be using USRA tech rules. We will also be transitioning to One Motor Box instead of FK-12. Thanks and hope to see you on the 24th!

Fun day of racing.

We had 10 racers total, in the 3 classes.

The winners were Mark Rosenwinkel in Group F, Phil Kreuger in FK12, and myself in Retro Can Am.

Big thanks to Andy Fisher on race directing while I went home for holiday pictures, and Forest Hoover, on volunteer marshaling all day.

Next race is scheduled December 15th.
