Amp - Karts Cars Racing Logo - Black.png




The best of the best have descended upon Dawsonville.  It's time for the Eastern Chumpionship!

Why would all these top guns come to little Dawsonville, GA?  For money?  Pro ride?  TV endorsements?  Nope, a trophy made of scrap metal, a gold number panel and bragging rights.  That's all there is in grassroots racing, and it's enough.  Read on to get the info to make your weekend a little smoother.

Thursday Trailer Drop - For those of you who are registered for the Friday test day, AMP will allow you access to the track Thursday night.  All you need is your pit stall number. 
Gates - For all other teams, the gates will open at 3pm on Friday.

Paddock - The paddock is first come first served, although most people will be able to park behind their pit box.  

Tech - If you have not had your annual tech for 2017, bring your car through the tech line along with all your paperwork filled out.  Make sure you have read the rules.  Swap cars with no paperwork will likely be put in EC unless tech is in a good mood.

Registration - If you are already tech'd, bring your yellow logbook directly to registration.  Before you arrive, log in and check your driver roster for accuracy.  Make any corrections ahead of time.  If you are paid with the correct drivers, check-in is a 3-minute process.  If you are not coming (work issue, car issue, etc), email me to let me know you will not be there.

Novice School - 5pm, location to be announced.

Pit Assignments - Here are your pit assignments.

Test Day - Atlanta Motorsports Park, Racing Analytics and DiscoveryParts Open Test Day.  
Dawsonville, GA, Discoveryparts, Racing Safety Experts and Racing Analytics, Race Vehicle Preparation, both located inside Atlanta Motorsports Park, are proud to announce a limited number of spots available on October 27, 2017.
This single day, open track format is for advanced drivers to experience the maximum amount of track time. This day, October 27, 2017, is the Friday before the Double 8 ChumpCar Chumpionship race. 
Full details are here
 and all questions should be sent to sales@discoveryparts.com
A reminder: read through and print out the Supplemental Rules for this event here.

If you have any questions about registration, please contact Katherine Miller here katherine.miller@chumpcar.com .  Any other questions you can contact me here info@chumpcar.com.

We're looking forward to seeing you all in GA!

Paul, Doc and I are a bit upset. I asked Mike if we could outfit the ShitVan (1998 Toyota Sienna v6) with a cage, and race with a camera mounted on a gimble.

He said, "Too funny. No." 
I believe he doesn't want us to win the chumpionship, thus making all you wannabe's look bad.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up in advance. 

Dawsonville has selected the weekend of our race to hold it's Annual Festival. Traditionally this is held the weekend before this race. 
As such, the main roads though downtown Dawsonville will be closed for most of the weekend. 
If you are coming from 75/575 your route will be unaffected. If you are coming from 400/53/85 a few new routes are going to be suggested on this thread and hopefully in the email blasts before the event. 


AMP is still going to be inviting the locals out to watch our races, and they will be bringing their children in the evening for our Trunk Or Treat, so Please bring Candy (and don't eat it all before Saturday Night)

I look forward to seeing everyone and looking forward to being back out on track with you guys!!!


Feel free to email me at Justin@100mphlunch.com if there is anything you need from Atlanta Motorsports Park!!

To answer the first question, strategy.  Either pit before red flag or at start of s unday.


Minor repairs are not allowed to happen during red flag.  Gotta do them before or after.


I am not sure what the exact penalty is, but in my understanding of the situation, you would be held for as long as you were making repairs.


This race should be treated as 1 long race.  There just happens to be a time gap in it.

Tell me about Park Ferme. If cars run a near perfect schedule of pit stops they will be out of fuel at the end of Saturday, 

Then it sounds like that may not be a perfect schedule of pit stops for this race 😜


so when is fueling allowed?

when the race isn't under red flag and pit lane is open. With red flag stoppages they may say something like "no pitting within 15 minutes of the red flag"

 Strategy hero or zero time ..  hint planning for different scenarios is a must .As the race unfolds the plan May have to adapt and if you stick to your one shot plan you will lose ..   have a glitch on Sat fill and be ready to get it on Sunday with minimal stops .  You can loose sleep thinkin about this stuff ..

   Double 8s or any park ferme race is scored just like the race is continus but I will say in my experience if everyones transponder hit's you may be going green the first lap Sunday. .  If your wating til Saturday  for sleep loss you don't think about racin as much as me ....
