DNQ Dirt Series Announces 2017 Rule Changes

With another year of DNQ racing coming to an end the DNQ Dirt series has announced its 2017 rule changes before the end of the 2016 season. "We have had a great year of racing, the Busch Series has grown into a great series with a lot of competitors and we have been very happy with it. The IROC Series will grow as well and it has had a great first year of competition. The Winston Cup Series kart count has been struggling but the quality of the competition is really good, I hope to get some more competitors in the Cup Series for 2017. I hope that these changes will help us with all 3 series for next season."
