Registration Information

Individuals can register for Regular Season teams online.

We still have openings in all of our leagues!  If you are an individual looking to join a new league, let us know and we will find you a spot!

We have not gotten many pre-registrations for the new Buck Hill Friday Day league starting in January.  If we don't get more registrations, we will have to cancel this league.  If you are planning on racing in this new league, try and register - or at least let us know so that we can keep the league alive.
