  Transponders are on The Way as Southside is Gearing Up for 2013
March 21, 2013

The transponder system was ordered March 21 and will be installed and working for opening night, April 5, 2013. Track owner, Sue Clements, stepped up and ordered the system after a sponsor backed out at the last minute and put the transponders in doubt for the upcoming season. The transponder system will have many benefits for the speedway, drivers and even the fans. Drivers and fans will be able to follow their practice, qualifying and race info in real time on their smart phones, tablets or laptops with the "Race Monitor" app.

Beginning opening night, transponders will be mandatory for Late Models, Modifieds and Legends. Grand Stocks, Street Stocks and U-Cars will be mandatory on May 31, 2013. This will give those divisions a little extra time to purchase a transponder, but you can still take advantage of the system if you already have one. The rules concerning mounting location of the transponders will be posted on the website shortly and they should mirror the rules that other area tracks run.

If you do not already have a transponder, you can purchase one directly from Chris Stefi within the next 30 days. There are two options for you to consider, a Classic (you own) or a Flex (a lease). To help with the cost the speedway has negotiated a special price if you purchase within 30 days. These prices are not marked up and hopefully will help, but they can not be guaranteed beyond April 19, 2013. Payment must be made in full before your transponder will be ordered. One order will be placed on March 29th, so the transponders will be delivered in time for opening night and a second order will be placed on April 19th. If you need a transponder, we highly encourage you to take advantage of these prices and contact Chris Stefi at racesouthside@yahoo.com or (804) 640-6332 for more information. Shipping charges may apply.

Thanks and we look forward to a very exciting 2013!!!
