While I would agree that our series could always use more cowbell, alas, Mr. Walken was not available.

Tenative schedule for UF1 Midwest @ Hot Slots:

Saturday -
Doors @ 9 a.m.
Practice/registration 9 - 11:30
Drivers meeting @ 11:30
Qualifying session @ 12
First round of finals @ 12:45 1 :00 p.m. depending on attendance

Sunday -
Repeat of Saturday's schedule

There is also planned to be the regular Saturday night racing program for anyone wanting to run VTA, USGT, 12th scale, or yes, even more F1!

Hotel list to come soon, we have all the standard places. Red Roof, La Quinta, etc. within 5 miles or so of the track. I'll get addresses and info up later today/tonight.

But he is not the guest announcer for this event. I fear I would be banned for life from the facility.
