This number will be scanned/logged into a drivers common database designating it as a tire for use at Chemung Speedrome/Spencer Speedway. Each scanned/logged serial number will be placed in that Drivers Common Tire Inventory that will be assigned to the driver that the tires have been purchased for.

In the event a driver changes cars for qualifying or feature racing, the Drivers Common Tire Inventory must accompany them to the new car. Each driver must keep their Common Tire Inventory current with Track Officials.

This tire MAY be purchased at the next race event AND this tire MUST be raced that night if purchased. If the tire is not purchased at the following event, driver forfeits that tire and it can not be banked.

The NEW tire purchased MUST be raced that night. This number is the maximum number of tires that can be registered by a new driver for the first time at either track. The NEW tire is only an option and does not have to be purchased.

The maximum number of tires allowed in a driver’s Common Tire Inventory throughout the season will be twelve (12) tires.
