Champion Racing Association officials announced at the beginning of the weekend that live timing and scoring will be available to teams, drivers, and fans this weekend at Winchester Speedway. Courtesy of race-monitor.com, the live timing/scoring feed will be available on most smart phones during practice, qualifying, and races all weekend long.

The “Race Monitor” app charges a one-time fee of $4.99 for the service. An additional fee of 4.99 will give you each lap of every car that hits the raceway in practice, qualifying, and racing. It is a great tool for teams, especially during practice, as it logs every lap on the track.

If you have an I Phone, I Pad, or an Android phone with Android OS v2.1 or higher, you will be able to access the scoring feed after downloading the app named “Race Monitor”. For more information, go to: race-monitor.com
