I don't know the tracks you will be racing at, but there are basically no rules as to what you can do to the tires for usmts. Groove and sipe away!

Tire grooving in USMTS is legal this year. If your car is legal for IMCA, Wissota, or UMP, it will be legal for USMTS. Most races are on G60's.

NO Digital tachs of any kind! Engine setback or the distance from motor plate to center of rearend is usually measured during tech. Engines are pretty open...but most anything can be competitive on the hockey pucks. The qualifying for the main is based upon finish positions and passing points in the heats.

Call Todd Staley if you have any questions, he'll be happy to talk to you.

As far as the Jamboree goes, We are definitely going again this year. Best show of the year in this area in my opinion. Lots of racing, great show, and some of the best mods in the country show up! It was a very fun week last year, and just making the features can be quite an accomplishment. It was also quite a party!!
