Valve Cover Races

For more than a century, Indiana  has been home to the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the Indianapolis 500. The tradition is carried on at GOF Central 2023! 

You won't want to miss the excitement created by the Valve Cover Racing heats as we race to crown  a champion.

Indiana - where the racing tradition lives on!

Tech Session/Clinic

Valve Cover Races will be held on Thursday afternoon in our conference area.  Prior to the races there will be a Tech Session held by Lee Jacobsen of the Michigan T-Club.  This is a hands on tech session and Lee will discuss basic and advance  VCR design and answer any questions you may have.

The cost of the Clinic is free.  Also, the first eight people who bring their own valve cover (to Lee at the time of the clinic) will receive a free chassis and axles and will learn how to attach their valve cover. 


A note from Lee:  Bring your own wheels. Inside Diameter should be 5/16" to 3/8", Outside Diameter 6" (Check out Amazon). Shopping cart wheels, pulleys, the options are wide open. Drag and friction are your enemy.  Any Questions - email Lee at

All are welcome to attend the clinic to watch and learn valve cover racing tips from Lee!
