A four hour window is slated for all of those teams wanting a golden opportunity to turn some laps. At 10 pm the lights will be shut off and the night will be concluded. The pit cost is $25.00.
Another "playdate" is scheduled for March 2nd. Starting times for that practice session is noon to 4 pm. Pit fees will also be $25.00.
