Effective immediately, and in order to ensure the safety of our drivers, vented fuel caps will not be allowed at Midwest Thunder events. This decision is based on significant fuel leaks that have been observed, videotaped, and reported over the past few weeks at our events, and also failures of the cap that have been communicated to us by other regions. Each track offers a unique shape and has its own personal character. The series is operated by a board of directors consisting of presidents from each track.
