It’s a race the fans love because of all the passing. You don’t have to finish first in all the segments to become the overall winner, just collect the most points. Some drivers love it some don’t but this race has been a tradition at Spoon for over 20 years. We hope you will enjoy it and have fun. Times and admission prices are listed on the flyer.

Good luck to all.
