Transponder Purchase/Rental Information:

system will be compatible with RACEceiver/Westhold transponders as well
as AMB/MY laps transponders.
Hesston is investing in this new system since it allows the racers to
purchase transponders at a much lower price! It also allows
competitors at other area tracks that have these transponders to use
them when racing at Hesston.
Westhold (yellow) rechargeable transponder sets including transponder,
charger and pouch are available from RACEceiver for $250 at this link

option if planning on racing
in more than 10 events at Westhold-compatible

transponder purchase. Drivers using track transponders must purchase a transponder
bracket for $10 or a pouch for $15, which will be available at the pill
Beginning October 2012, race teams must purchase
or rent a transponder. Purchase of a transponder will be less
expensive than nightly rentals after 15 races. Hesston speedway
will offer rentals for racers that have not purchased transponders by
that date for $25 per race night.
AMB/MY Laps transponders will still be an option
and can purchased
directly from My Laps. Direct wired and rechargeable units

competing at another track that uses only AMB/My Laps system, the AMB/My
Laps transponder is necessary at that track and will work at Hesston
If you own a
transponder please make sure to give your transponder number to the
Electronic Scoring Technicians on your first visit to the speedway. Rentals require a signature accepting
responsibility returning the unit in the same condition it was issued
and a drivers license. Drivers will be responsible for
replacing damaged rental units.

system will allow for quicker lineups. This will result in a
savings in high fuel costs as well as allowing divisions to run more
green flag laps in the racing program.
