FLAT ROCK/TOLEDO SPEEDWAY BULLETIN-DECEMBER 8, 2022

We will be posting the 2023 schedules prior to the holidays.  We have had some last-minute issues come up with a couple of Touring Series, which in turn affects our divisions/dates that will also be racing with them, so we are addressing them now and making the changes.

W-9 FORMS:  Several of you have received W9 forms in the mail or by email; please complete the forms and return by December 20.

THANK YOU to Moran Chevrolet (Outlaw Super Late Models), DTS Drive Train Specialists (Street Stocks) and R & M Recycling (Figure 8’s) for their continued sponsorship!  We will be announcing additional sponsorships as they are secured.

CAR NUMBERS:  If you are new to our tracks, or are changing divisions or looking at changing numbers, give Scott a call at 734-782-2480 or 419-727-1100.

The 2023 ARCA membership forms are now available.  They are posted on each of the track’s home page under the Racer Info. tab.  *There is a separate membership document for Minors that includes the minor’s release and waiver also in that document.  Please be sure to fill out the entire application.  There is no cost increase in memberships for 2023.

The 2 tracks will flip nights one time in 2023; Flat Rock will run Friday night, August 4, while Toledo will be in action Saturday, August 5.

In addition to the regular racing events, extra lap events have been added to the 2023 schedule. 

The Figure 8’s will have two (2) 50-lap races at Flat Rock.

The Street Stocks will have two (2) 50-lap events and the 100-lap race at Flat Rock to highlight their dates.

The Factory Stocks will have a 100-lap event at Toledo.

The 250 lap Enduro Series will again have four (4) races at Flat Rock.

The Outlaw Super Late Models and Late Model Sportsman will have some changes to their dates for 2023…check the schedules when we post them.

RULES:  2023 changes were mailed in early November and posted on each track’s website under the Racer information tab.
