Business to Discuss 

  1. Demo derby shows for 2024 were discussed. Two options were presented. Option one would be to have a show as a qualifier for the big show. The second option is a two man option, which is popular with North Dakota and Minnesota drivers. Currently, the plan is to run two demo derby events, one during the state fair and one in August. It would be beneficial to have a two day event during the fair, but that would depend on the relay horse race event. Sam presented the board with two different structures for the demo derby. This will be discussed again at a future board meeting.
  2. 2024 Race Schedule
    • With championship night the end of June, the month of August will be filled with the current race classes and Legends.
  3. Equipment
    • The board is looking to purchase a sheepsfoot. There is a lead on one in Estevan and one in Bismarck. Follow up on the leads will be tabled to the next meeting.
  4. Motor Magic Purse will be discussed at a future board meeting.
