The South Jersey Region and New Jersey Motorsports Park announce the eighth running of The Devil in the Dark 12 Hour endurance race on NJMP's Thunderbolt Circuit. The 2017 edition will be held on Saturday, 22 April 2017 and will again run from noon to midnight. There will be an SCCA Test Day on Friday, 21 April for 12 Hour competitors and other closed wheel cars.

Again this year, the region is offering a companion event - The Devil during the Day 6 Hour endurance race. The 6 Hour will run concurrent with the 12 Hour, starting at noon and running until 6:00 PM. This companion race is intended for teams with budget limitations, fewer drivers and/or smaller crews. The 12 Hour rules and procedures will be utilized. There will be separate results and awards for the daytime race.

This race is a continuation of the successful events run in the past several years. The format and rules will be very similar to last year with a no major changes from previous years' events. The open refueling rule is being retained as well as the consolidated endurance classes introduced in 2012. There will be some fine tuning of the endurance classes. If you missed The Devil last year, be sure to put it on your calendar for this year.

Long distance endurance racing has been under increasing pressure in the past couple of years. The Devil appears to be the last remaining east coast enduro. If you enjoy endurance racing and want to support this unique form of motorsports competition, please consider being at NJMP next April.

The entry package will be posted on the DLB online registration system by the end of the year. Registration will open on 1 February 2017.

Racing around the clock again in 2017!
