runner-up and one to all other competitors. Racers with perfect
attendance during the six weeks receive a two-point bonus.
Racers participating can win prizes during the weekly drawing
held at the drivers’ meeting. Each week seven lucky winners will
receive a Snap-On Tools item. Weekly prizes include a 3/8-drive
ratchet; American flag wrapped 3/8-drive air impact; borescope; 3/8
