Additional Information:

MSC drivers competing in MSC Events have found that putting on a good show, having fun, and giving each other opportunities to run in front, has been the way to run a safe, crowd pleasing show. We will try to convey this spirit to those who run with us. We DO NOT want any Win-At-All-Cost driving. In this vein, New MSC Members will be on a one-year on track probation. The MSC Board of Directors will discipline any hard driving as determined by it. This may be one race, multiple races, or whole year ban on competing in a MSC Event.

Anyone racing in a MSC Event MUST BE a MSC Member. There will be a one-time exemption for non-member cars.**

All new drivers must start in the back until approved by the board.

Exceptions to ALL or ANY of the above qualifications and specifications may be made under special circumstances at the discretion of the MSC Board of Directors. The intent is not to exclude, but rather to include all cars that keep within the Spirit of Vintage Racing.
