It is highly recommended that competitors purchase a new Crate GM with all of the correct documentation! 

As an option, competitors must have their used Crate Motors sealed by Tech, and approved before use.  The cost is yet to be determined and will be revealed at a later date.  The cost will be based on the amount of time to seal the motor, and for the cost of the sealing process.  For drivers purchasing a used Crate Motor, please remember that “Buyer Beware” should apply!  If you purchase an engine that tech deems unusable, you are responsible!  Please make sure if you purchase a used Crate, that you choose a reputable source!

Driver’s that violate the Crate Motor technical rule shall be subject to disqualification and/or fine and/or suspension and/or loss of points for season and/or and other action deemed appropriate by Ransomville Speedway Officials.
