If you have purchased a spot and can't attend the event, it is up to you to re-sell your spot.
When you do so, you must notify the MFBA by emailing us at midwestdomestics@gmail.com and tell us who is taking your spot.
The new driver will be required to fill out a registration form.

Q. What if I get hungry, is there food available or do I bring my own?

Q. If I bring my camera, will I find a good shot?
A. You bet! We encourage everyone to bring their cameras. There are plenty of places to get great shots from around the track and paddock.

Q. Do I have to drive back into town for gas?
