The hill is scenic, wide, fast uphill road coarse that is a lot of fun. It’s approximately 2.5 miles in length, and is situated in the heart of the scenic Pioneer Mountains. The couuse is located approximately 8 miles north of the town of Polaris, and approximately 30 miles south of Wise River, Montana. Many people from Montana,Oregon, Idaho, Washington, California and Canada have run in the past. Now, we need more support and participation from the people here in Montana.
The car classifications follow the SCCA Solo rules that we use in auto crossing. Additional safety factors are also required: Fire extinguishers (minimum 5BC) with metal fastening devises. Roll bars in open cockpit cars. Long pants, long sleeve shirts, and closed shoes….To name a few.
