Hello INR Members and Fellow Racers!

Finally, spring is here!  The snow is mostly gone and it's time to start thinking about racing again!  While some of us are getting ready to dust off our weekend warriors, others have spent the off seasons toying with projects over the winter.  Either way, we look forward to seeing everyone soon!  

We've solidified our schedule for this season.  Our first event is Sunday, April 12th.  Register ahead of time and save a few bucks!

Those that ran with us over the past few years may remember the late start
required by the Casino. This year is no exception.

9:30am - 10:50 Registration Open
9:30am - 11:00 Tech Inspection
11:30 Drivers Meeting
12:00 Green Flag

Novices must be registered by 10:15 and present for Novice Meeting and Novice Walk at 10:30

As always, keep tabs on INR events through our Facebook page, newsletters and membership meetings.

Dirty Dozen
Each year, attendees of our events and meetings have the opportunity earn points towards our Dirty Dozen award. The points vary based on events and work performed such as registration, timing, grid, etc. Attending other clubs events, road racing or helping at road race events also count towards the award. At the end of the year, the INR members with the top twelve highest points earn the club's recognition for their efforts as well as other gifts. 

Recently, the INR BOD decided that the dirty dozen should only apply to non-board members in order to recognize those who contributed to the continued success of our club.

We don't want to forget about those members that contribute to the Road Racing program.  Stay tuned for a newly minted award for Road Race participants!

1. James Rose: 750
2. Steve Ruschak: 700
3. Keith Wilkening: 570
