Race 6 at The Flats

23 Aug 2013 - 24 Aug 2013

The Rock Corps club has generously allowed ECORS to utilize the facility, where the terrain is very rocky and steep, limited passing areas and speed, but fun for everyone. Its a tough course, even when its dry! If you want a challenge and technical racing, this is the race for you. Its easy to get to and is less than 1/4 mile off of Exit 85 on Interstate 40. Pit areas are well maintained and access by large trucks and trailers is easy. Camping available for spectators and racers. Register here:
