2019 Rules for Galesburg SpeedwayKevin England
After seeing how successful the 2018 MSLRA rules package was and staying with Galesburg Speedway’s commitment to make it easy for drivers to visit our track or travel to other near by tracks. We will not be making any changes to the rules for the 2019 race season. Tracks that shared common rules last year saw an increase in new cars and fans that in years past race teams would have to of changed their entire car to travel somewhere new. This is a very loud message that the competitors and fans embrace tracks working together for the sport, making it easier to follow and giving drivers more opportunities to compete.
As for the Burg Stock promotion time, promotions will be returning for the 2019 race season. The rule was set to encourage competition and to keep the class as stock and as affordable as possible, it accomplished it’s goals but it may need a change. We are committed to making sure that new drivers have an affordable option to enter this great sport, while maintaining a competitive class. We however have not decided on what that time will be and ask for your patience while we figure out what is best for ALL of the competitors and what is also fair for experienced drivers. With an entire season worth of data, where we tracked every lap of every car, this will give us a lot more information to better judge what that time should be. Last years time of 17.399 was not far off and with an adjustment we feel we can improve on the time and accomplish the same goals.
Payouts are still being calculated and will be announced at a later date.
Thank you all for your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone at The Burg next season.
