Virginia Motor Speedway to Add Raceceiver Westhold Transponder System
Jamaica, VA – In an effort to save competitors on the cost of a new transponder officials at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway have added the Raceceiver Westhold Timing and Scoring System to the existing AMB / My Laps system for the 2012 season and beyond.
Not only will the speedway be able to accommodate the new Raceceiver Westhold transponders but the AMB / My Laps transponders that have been in use for the past eight years will continue to run on the new system.
“With the rising costs of the AMB / My Laps transponders we felt we had to do something to help our new and existing competitors, with the Westhold transponders only costing $250 we can save our competitors a sizeable amount,” commented track General Manager Clarke Sawyer.
“Add in the fact that those competitors who compete at other facilities that run the Westhold system will no longer have to rent a transponder from us when they choose to compete here at VMS,” added Sawyer.
With the new Westhold system the speedway will be introducing some new features for fans and competitors that will allow them to receive live timing and scoring during each event.
Competitors needing to purchase a new Westhold transponder or Raceceiver can do so by calling Chuck Marks of Chucks Racing Radios at (434) 661-8112. The transponder includes a charger for $250.
If you wish to continue to rent your transponder on a weekly basis the track will still keep a small amount on hand to rent for $25 per race.
All competitors are encouraged to have their transponders and Raceceivers at the speedway’s Test and Tune session on Saturday March 31st.
