How exciting to be holding this year’s SummerNationals as a STREET RACE in the middle of a city-wide FESTIVAL! And a NIGHT race, too! This event will be ‘off the hook’ and sold-out like never before!

UPDATE: Mandatory Pre-Staging Instructions for Modesto Pit Parking

Racers and teams can reserve the pit space needed by following these instructions – and by encouraging fellow drivers to do the same – ESPECIALLY to get pre-registered for the event as soon as possible! Remember: (1) pit spots cannot be finalized until all drivers in that spot are registered to race; (2) laying out the pits is always a challenge, so please put yours together carefully based on the info below before submitting it; and (3) the only way that drivers can qualify for the Supernats Priority Pre-Entry program this year is to have raced the SpringNats (and be registered for the Summernats by mid-July -- unless you have run all of your local PKC regional races year-to-date).

Pit Spot Reservations

If you know EXACTLY how much space you will need for your pit spot, please fax – or email – a complete drawing/written request to the SKUSA office ASAP – and preferably by July 18th at the latest. The fax number is 951-491-0809 and the email is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . What to include on your drawing/request is described below. (It’s a good idea to call after you send a fax, to make sure your drawing was received and is complete. Our phone number is 951-491-0808. Emails will be replied to with a confirmation upon receipt.)

The price of all pit spots will again be $.30/SF. The paddock is made up of pit spots in 5 separate parking lots and an area of pit parking on the street. These spots vary in size – 10x20s, 10x30s and 10x40s – so your drawing should reflect multiples of these sizes. See the detailed pit map below. Please also specify your top 3 choices for the pit spot LOCATION you prefer (i.e., A1-10, D28-30, etc.). We will do our best to accommodate your preferences. NOTE: Pit parking will begin on Wednesday afternoon, July 30th with the big rigs and biggest teams, and will end by Thursday evening with the S-Pits (as 11th Street will be the primary route for move-in). A more detailed schedule for move-in and tent setup will be posted shortly. SummerNats class sponsors will also get priority placement, so please see the flyer posted below and send an email if you are interested in becoming a class sponsor. Please also add a note on your pit request when submitting it if you are a confirmed sponsor for this event.

2014 SummerNats Pit Map

Here are the items to include on your pit request drawing:
  • Full layout – with dimensions in feet – of your total pit area. PLEASE BE EXACT, AND DO NOT REQUEST MORE SPACE THAN YOU TRULY NEED. You will not be able to add space when you arrive.
  • Include where tents will go (rental vs. owned), trailers, E-Z ups, VIP area, etc. NO CAMPING IN PITS.
  • Include space for trailer tongue and doors, and room for loading/unloading. Assume your pit could have only one entrance/exit; plan accordingly and define the primary entrance/exit on your drawing.
  • Include a team name and a list of the drivers that will be pitting in the spot. NOTE: All drivers MUST be registered for the race before SKUSA will confirm your pit spot. In the event that there are multiple teams in one pit area, a designated team manager/representative must be named as the person responsible for tent and trailer placement. We will NOT pit teams unless and until ALL trailers are present.
  • Teams that want to be pitted next to our near each other MUST submit their pit requests at the same time.
  • Include your name and best daytime contact info (phone and email).
  • Tell us whether or not you’ll be renting a tent, bringing your own, or both. See below for rental tent info.
  • Tell us if you are going to be a SKUSA sponsor at the event, and/or if you are interested in the LIVE FEED program being offered by Streamline Audio Visual to have TV’s in your pit to watch and hear the on-track racing.
