Practice Day - CANCELLED

Unfortunately, we will not host a Practice Day in 2022. This is because our usual hill on Grant Street will be under construction in June. We will be racing on West Stadium Avenue near Slayter hill on Purdue University's campus. We are unable to close Stadium Avenue for a day of practice. 

Any drivers that have not previously raced will be allowed a practice run down the hill before the race begins.


Final Inspections

Each car must pass a final inspection.  Cars are impounded afterwards until race day.
