Race Promoters & Clubs: Why Should You Join WISSOTA?

Many of you have heard of the WISSOTA Promoters Association but you may not know much about this non-profit, member-driven organization. WISSOTA, as it is more commonly known, is a sanctioning body for six divisions of race cars: Late Models, Modifieds, Super Stocks, Mod Fours, Street Stocks and Midwest Modifieds. All of these run under common sets of rules and procedures at approximately 50 race tracks. The member promoters and racing associations of WISSOTA have spent nearly 30 years creating and refining unique rules packages for six divisions of race cars known as WISSOTA Late Models, WISSOTA Modifieds, WISSOTA Super Stocks, WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds, WISSOTA Street Stocks and WISSOTA Mod Fours.

WISSOTA is, in its purest form, a spirit of cooperation and its members work together – as well as with the region's competitors – to keep the industry strong and stable.

WISSOTA, a non-profit association founded on and guided by democratic principles and participation, has been in operation since the early 80s and counts as members approximately 50 tracks in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Ontario, Alberta and Manitoba in Canada. The organization has maintained steady regional participation since its inception, and the "WISSOTA region" is recognized nationwide as a model of consistency and cooperation within the racing industry.

Over the years, WISSOTA's members have strived to incorporate rules and restrictions for the various divisions so that racing remains both competitive and affordable for the participants. Nearly 3,000 competitors raced at WISSOTA member tracks last year.

As you will see below, WISSOTA has many benefits to offer both drivers and promoters.  Look this over and you will see why WISSOTA has grown to become an envied model of promoter cooperation and one of the largest dirt track sanctioning bodies in the United States. Join forces with WISSOTA's other members and improve your track's racing program.
