worn out tires seem to be the fastest on the local guys cars.

Just and FYI to clear up an earlier post SXT is the only tire sauce allowed at the Southern Nats this year. Dirla made that decision last week but I forgot to post it here.

He just doesnt want a bunch of different things put on the track during the week especially if he doesnt know what it is or tested it.

The one everyone uses on carpet. I believe its 3.0? He will have plenty of it at the track for sale if anyone needs it.

this is the format I started...so I will finish it this way...I was unaware of the National Point system Kevin and Rob had put together, and for that...I apologize....but a lot of things about this event was 1st times or taking chances so t is what it is. I hope everyone comes to enjoy it and have a great time.

Please feel free to be moved to Pro if you desire, to collect points...I will give till Friday to shuffle

Thank you

NOTES:
Paid entries will come 1st for pit space. And we will not reserve extra pit spaces at a table unless everyone at your table is paid in FULL. Don't ask to hold a seat for somebody who is not paid. If you "own" a table please have your entry paid before the doors open for the 1st day of practice. If not your seat will come to 1st come 1st serve. WE WILL NOT BE DOING A SEATING CHART THIS YEAR.*

Is it still possible to add a second class (USGT) if I am already signed up and paid for USVTA?
