This will again be a two day racing event on Saturday and Sunday at Motorsport Park Hastings with an available Friday afternoon of test and tune (see below)  If you have not yet traveled to Hastings, you owe it to yourself to experience this cool facility and track [Track Map] and see how this local community welcomes us. We strive to make this a fun weekend with abundant track time as well as a great social component.

You say you want to experience seeing a full eclipse of the sun?  Well, MPH has arranged for a Special Eclipse Viewing Event!  There will be a Monday eclipse viewing at the track on Monday the 21st called "The Day The Lights Went Out In Hastings"  Anyone who has paid for RV parking or camping for Friday and Saturday may remain on-site Sunday night at no addition charge.  The eclipse will be total in Hastings and is scheduled to begin Monday at 11:34 AM.  More details at http://www.racemph.com/event/secret-event/.
