Just to clarify this meet is not a free track day, it is an event to meet and come check out Willow springs which includes free lunch, free one hour driving clinic session (limited track use with car skid pad control), and raffle prizes.

Now for those who are interested in running the track the entire day, Extreme Speed Track Events has offered us a discount rate of $90 (regular $120). This includes basic instructions and timing.

Please use the promo code sow9 (all lowercase) when you register at www.extremespeedtrackevents.com
