Mandy’s Young Guns (Kids) Class

MCR has added the kids 4 cylinder class for the 2017 season.   Mandy’s Young Guns was the idea of track promoter Chris Zuver, fiance Mandy Knapp.

“Mandy and I saw the class at Bradford Speedway last year and the racing was real competitive with the kids, stated Zuver.” “She wanted the class at MCR in 2017 and why not have them?  They are the next generation of racers and with two tracks within 15 miles of each other it makes perfect sense to have these kids get the maximum seat time they can get to become the next racing star.”

The rules will be the same as Old Bradford Speedway rules.
