The first race, at The RUG in King, NC, is a great Snowbirds warmup. Same carpet and same size layout as the Snowbirds.

Come on down and join us!

Just two more weeks until Race #1 at The RUG in King! Practice available Friday night, Jan. 13th from 6-10PM.

Racing starts bright and early on Saturday, doors open for practice at 8AM. First qualifier should go off at 1PM.

Race fees: $25 first class, $15 additional classes. We're trying to keep race fees low to encourage people to dust off those on-road cars and race.

Race Format: TWO qualifiers, and double mains. No bumps. The 2nd main grid will be inverted from the first main race finish order. Combined race finishes determines winner, tie breaker will be 2nd main finishing order.

Classes:

17.5TC open tire
1/12th 17.5 open tire
USVTA
F1 open tire
Tamiya Mini - 2 classes: BOX STOCK 100% stock w/ bearings allowed.
OPEN MINI is anything else! 21.5 brushless or kit brushed motor in OPEN. Tamiya tires only. Any body (no wings permitted).

EXHIBITION CLASS: "Carolina Hot Rods". USVTA tires, any body, any motor, any battery, blinky ESC. Max wing size is TC wing. Great class for those old TC chassis gathering dust in the closet. Grab any motor you want, install it and come racing! This class will be just for fun, not part of the points series. There will be at least 2 exhibition races run during the day, and I hope to run at least one of them in reverse direction. And do a rolling start!

I hope to see you there on the 14th!

Mark Coffin, Series Race Director

Good luck to all that are visiting Xtreme in Charleston this weekend. It is quite the bullring but looks like a serious hoot and a half to drive.

Have fun and enjoy!!
