6-4-We are pleased to announce that going forward, East Lincoln Speedway will now allow the 602 crate motor to run in our Renegade division! This was voted on unanimously by our current Renegade drivers in an effort to increase the car count for the class. Also, with the recent closing of Friendship Motor Speedway, we want to give these drivers a place to race!

For now, all East Lincoln Renegade rules will apply to the 602’s. This includes weight, shocks, carburetor, tires, etc. This is a trial basis, and we may need to adjust in the future for competition purposes. Please note that ALL RENEGADES MUST RUN AMERICAN RACER TIRES!

In the event of a protest, ALL motors will be checked on site at East Lincoln Speedway. We will use the GM guidelines for the specs of the motor.
