CLASS INFORMATION
CLASSES
Racing classes are determined by the amount of modifications to a machine. MWRA and it’s officials reserve the right to order an inspection of a vehicles modifictaions at any time or if a top three race finish is protested. Anyone found in violation of the class rules and limitations will be banned from the series for the remainder of the current season. The placement of the race in question will be forfieted to the next runner up. It is MWRA’s perogitive to hold a fair and honest competition and we retain all rights to maintain this.

RUN GROUPS
If a particular racing class has less than five entrees at a given race the entrants heats will be combined with the heats of the nearest class with less entrees. Likewise, if a group has greater than twelve entrees the group may request their own Run Group and run their own heats. MWRA officials reserve the right to refuse Run Groups if the track, weather or timing become a factor.

STARTING POSITION DETERMINATION
A driver may not qualify more than one entry per class. The starting position of each heat will be determined by a random drawing. If an entrant is not present for the drawing they will automatically be placed at the end of the field.
Added cooling systems to keep utv as cools as posable
CLASSES
*STOCK – CLASS 9 - Allows for changes to tires, wheels, roll cage, bumpers and skid plates, air box and exhaust, Cooling systems including oil, bed delete kit is allowed.

I am definately interested in racing, is there specified rules and are they going to race sxs's in the whole schedule? Possibly 4 of my friends and I are interested in this series. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

2-3 hour toughman endurance race on Saturday. This will be a 2 man race and a GPS IS recommended as the course should be around 25 miles! The short course will be on Sunday. We are getting ready to build it. 1+ mile I would say. I told them 40'-50' wide. Up hill and down with flats, rolling jumps, rythem section. Should look similar to the tracks on tv the trucks and buggies run on. Leerjak is a first class offroad park. www.leerjak.com
