When I approached the track owner about hosting a race, I told him that we like to keep UF1 as the headliner and depending on the size of the crowd, run one other class as a support class to UF1. As far as I am concerned majority can rule as to what class is run as a support class.
If there is a healthy turnout it can take 4-5 hours to run a UF1 program, of course with the size of the track, we have the option of running 10-12 cars for each main group so that could cut the time down. I am trying to get an idea of turnout since we usually give away some cool prizes at every race.feel free to PM me with any other questions

I have been emailing with Scott, and the support class will be USGT, if I have a chance I might throw my hat in the ring for USGT
I recommended that qualifying starts at noon with the mains rolling off at 1 or 1:30

Let's get this back to the top as the indoor season begins!!!!

November 2 the Track @ Harbor Hobbies the UF1 MIDWEST series hits the carpet

4 drops this year, so you still have time to jump in. You still have a drop left if you haven't raced at all....

I hope to be at this one, if nothing else to get some more f1 racing in and help the car count.
