Jr Mini Stock Rules
Grayson County Speedway

This class was started as a way to include younger drivers in our sport. It is the intent of the owners of Grayson County Speedway that this class will continue to be a “safe haven” for our young drivers.

If you as a driver detract from this atmosphere, in any way, you will be asked to find a new class.
