   Saturday's Agenda         

This page provides information for Saturday (Aug 31th 2002) TDI Fest 2002 days event. That day events will all be held at the Mid Michigan Motorplex  in Stanton MI. We will have the use of the drag strips track up until 2:30 PM for TDI Fest activities. Then normal racing activities begins at the track and we (the TDI's group) become one of the racing classes.
The track will also have open food facilities and restrooms for our all day use.

  • Gates Open @ 8:00am, an entry fee $12.00 per person will be charged!
    Please note this $12.00 fee is an all day event fee and your hand will be stamped so you can come and go at will.
