Laughing and cheering are great components for entertainment. Getting your company name or product to center stage while people are focused on the entertainment is key. Wyoming County International Speedway has the perfect promotion for the junkyards of our region, and individuals who simply enjoy crashing and competition!
To participate, WCIS needs 3-4 running midsize to full-size automobiles to form 1 team, front or rear-wheel drive (No Trucks). The general idea, similar to Bounce the Beatle of years past, take a small gutted car, paint it with black and white hexagons. Now it becomes the ball. Each team will attempt to score by pushing the ball (car) to the goal of the opponent’s team.
The team that scores the set amount of points moves to the finals. 3 cars maximum will be on the field at one time (front stretch, grass infield), the fourth car is to substitute is one fails to continue running for the next event only. No substitutions during any give round until the end of play. The field will be penned off from turn 4 to turn 1 and be as wide as the infield light poles to the concrete retaining wall. The ‘ball car’ will start in the center (start/finish line) with the waving of the green flag each team will begin play. When a goal is scored, play is then halted. Vehicles who stop moving during play will be left to sit unless safety is jeopardized.
Team players maybe chosen by participating junkyard or volunteered at WCIS. Safety equipment is required, (firesuit, gloves, and helmet ect..). Each car shall have the doors welded or chained shut with a Nerf rail bolted to the outside of the driver’s side (min ½ x4 plate or better). The plate shall extend from wheel well to wheel well between 12” to 15” up from ground level. Minimum (3) ½” bolts extended through the car body and secured with large plate or washers on the inside. The diver’s compartment should be clear of any sharp objects. All side glass must be removed along with any additional burnable interior components besides the driver’s seat. No additional weight or structural support will be legal within any team car. No modifications to the drive train, suspension or chassis.
Along with the fun, entertainment, and event exposure, WCIS will market this event with posters, PA announcements, media print, and fast becoming the strongest venue of advertisement…our growing two million hit motor sports website, www.wyomingcountyinternationalspeedway.com. As for the team cars go…they get donated back to each participating sponsor for recycling, our reconditioning for the next Junkyard Soccer match!
