ON-TRACK, drivers will tackle the Buttonwillow Raceway Park and vie for the best single lap during Time Attack lapping sessions and combine that with a furious no-endurance needed point-to-point TrackSprint event. The best times from each will be combined to determine finishing order and the top three overall and in each class stand on the KONI Podium and take home the trophies.
