Attention Drivers and Owners:
PDTR will be upgrading to a transponder scoring system in 2015. We are in the process of purchasing the necessary equipment to install in the spring. All cars will need to be equipped with a transponder; either wireless or hard wired. Wireless transponders will be available to rent for $8.00 on race nights or you can purchase your own unit and not have to deal with the hassles on race night of paying to rent and getting the unit attached to your car. Anyone renting on a weekly basis will be required to purchase their own protective mounting pouch and attach it to their car.You can purchase a hard wired transponder for $200. Wireless units, which include rechargeable transponder, charging unit, and Pro Mounting Pouch, sell for $250.
We will be taking orders for both types until Feb. 1st. If the number of orders are large enough the cost of each could be less. The supplier offers discounts when ordering in larger quantities.
In order to be prepared for the start
of the season on May 2nd we ask that all drivers
contact us and tell us whether you already have a
transponder, will purchase from another vendor, will
purchase from us, or will rent on a weekly basis. Contact us
or phone 920-893-5751.

|GOOD NEWS FOR SPRINT CARS
PDTR and EWSC contacted Hoosier and American Racer Tire Companies asking for a tire proposal for their respective tracks. It was
explained to the tire companies that any offers made would be good at both EWSC and PDTR. This is important because many drivers
would be racing at both tracks and having the same tire requirement would save the drivers money. After many lengthy phone calls
both companies sent proposals.
After reviewing the options the PDTR and EWSC boards were aware of the importance in choosing a tire that would not burden the racer
witha huge increase in cost. After lengthy deliberations and contacting several drivers for there input the two boards came to the same
tire conclusion;the tire of choice would be the American Racer.Effective July 1, 2008, a new American Racer Right Rear tire and a Left Rear tire
will be allowed at PDTR and EWSC.
The cost of the new right is $175 and the left is $160. Ten dollars per rear tire will be paid back to the tracks. There is also an option on
a front tire at $129. Sippel Racing will be selling the American Racer tires. The current Goodyear tires will be allowed for the entire
2008 season or as long as the supply lasts.
PDTR will put the money into the end of the year payout for the Sprint car division. Anyone racing 75% of the season
will be eligible for this payout. Free tires are also part of the new deal, however PDTR does not know what will be
done with them at this time. We want you to know that anything done with these free tires will benefit the drivers not the track.

A STATEMENT FROM THE SHEBOYGAN COUNTY FAIR BOARD REGARDING THE OPERATION OF THE 2005 RACING PROGRAM ON SATURDAY NIGHTS AT THE FAIR PARK
For several years the Fair Board has been the sounding board for fans and racers. Some of those racers have left because the rules at Plymouth were not compatible with similar divisions that run in the area. These racers noted that with the ever increasing cost of maintaining and operating a race car, one night a week racing is almost unaffordable. After much consideration and several fact finding missions the Fair Board made a decision to promote the racing at the Fair Park and allow all the current participants to continue to race. The Fair Board has hired a Race Director, George Baumann, to oversee the entire racing operation. Mr Baumann contacted several surrounding area tracks and discussed their track rules and under his direction rules for each division were made. These rules will allow racers from the Plymouth Dirt Track to race on other nights at other tracks when they are not racing at Plymouth. NO ONE has been "ousted " from the racing program, all divisions can race at the Plymouth track just as they have for many years. YES, there is a big change in the payout structuring ; YES there will be a Sprint Car Division added to the program; YES there are some minor changes for the Late Models and Grand Nationals, BUT NO ONE IS EXCLUDED FROM THE NEW PROGRAM
The Fair Board believes the changes which are incorporated into the 2005 racing season will be a huge benefit to all racers who chose to participate and to all the fans who have been asking for changes. "We expect to see many racers who have left Plymouth return and bring their fans with them to enjoy a great racing program."
