The NDRL's McKean County Raceway Adds AMB Transponders
East Smethport, PA (September 14, 2013) The NDRL's McKean County Raceway will implement the use of both AMB (Red) transponders as well as the Westhold (Yellow) transponder system that is used for scoring in the super late model, crate late model and emod weekly divisions.
The NDRL's McKean County Raceway will have the use of both AMB and Westhold systems in time for the upcoming blockbuster event, the 8th Annual Fall Classic that will feature the NDRL’s ULMS Late Models, the RUSH Late Model Touring Series, the NDRL’s A&MP UEMS Emods, BRP CanAm Late Models, Close Racing Supply Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, and the Pure Stocks.
The ULMS Super Late Models, RUSH Late Model Touring Series, ULMS Emods, and the BRP CanAm Late Models will be required to use transponders during the Fall Classic.
