*** Stick Shift Championship Series program changes: ***
The Stick Shift Championship Series is now an Elk Creek Dragway Class. All questions, concerns and ideas for the class should be directed to the management of Elk Creek Dragway.This season first round buy backs only. The first round winners and first round buy backs will be ran seperate in the second round, then will be ran together from the third round on. This will ensure that you will not run the same car first and second round or until both cars have won a round. We will call first round winners and buy backs to the lanes separately for the second round. If odd number of first round winners exist a winner will have to run a buy back car.
The other change is everyone is in the points at no charge.
 Everything else remains the same as last season.
