                                          5. 2013 Tri-State Speedway Rules Published

                                            If you are one (or some) of the few (or many) that have been waiting for the 2013 Tri-State Speedway rules to be published... 

                                            They have now been published!

                                            You can find them by either hovering over the "Rules" tab above and selecting your choice or by clicking on the "Rules" tab and then clicking on your choice. Either way, once you click on a class link, you can then print each class. 

                                            If you have any questions, or concerns, please call Tim at 479.806.4101.
