Class / Amature
What level of experience of racing do you need to race in the Amature Class. My reason for asking is it looks like the only class to run a r/a 4 stoke stock.

you can race amateur. Amateur is a combined skill level of Novice and Expert

Just stay to the right, and outta the way! If your getting lapped, be respectful of the guys in the lead, and move over. No need to hold them up if you’re a lapped rider. Just my .02….

Another class you can race is Novice Runabout Limited.
Here is the link to the 2009 APBA Rule Book Draft.
Not sure if Supercourse will have the same classes/rules as Closed Course, but this will give you an idea what you can and can't do in each class.
If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Your best bet,if it is your first time,is to race beginner..I know you can race other classes,but this will give you a feel for going around the course and not being a hazzard,the last thing anyone wants is to hurt someone or get hurt.. race at your pace have a great time.... enjoy you will have a great time.. if you want to go to nashville or havasu you will need to race a novice class at least once..

lappers are what make races interesting, they are the "X factor"
an unknown that can make a boring race interesting.
just like a buoy, you gotta get around em'...
but they move!!!! hahahaha
its the passing that is most fun to watch.
otherwise all races would jsut be time trials.
