It's getting close to race time ! 2 more weeks !
Is there anyone that's hasn't signed up yet ? Just trying to help Myron as much as we can to make sure the trophy count is Right. Ultimately I would love to see more interest in the pro VTA and IROC classes . the racing format for these 2 classes will be great . not to mention clean racing all the way thru all of the 6 heads up races . either your racing for the top spot against the best of the best or just wanting some more track time wile your in Nashville it will be well worth it ! Theirs several spots still open in these classes, so what is the hold up ? Do we need to open the eligability up to all A-main drivers from the 5 races Myron listed to fill these classes up? If I had a extra car this yr I would jump back in . it was a blast in pro vta last yr .

I'm sure that I'd finish DFL, but I'm interested. Can we still sign up for IROC GT?

Reading the rules for the IROC Pro GT, I may not qualify. Looking at entries, I only see three for Pro GT, only two of which have paid. Has the criteria for entering this class been opened-up a bit?

Maybe, have you made a A-main at one of the 5 events list ?

But if you are considering Pro VTA or IROC, you will need to get in asap...cause if we dont have enough, I will have to drop the classes....I will hold these classes open till Tuesday 9-13-16

hope more join in...I would love to see this

Myron, if you'll have me, I'm in for IROC GT. I signed up already.

I'm just an old, slow guy with a stick radio but I'll support the cause. 10th in USGT points last year.

The new motor rule was in effect for The USVTA Summer Slam at The Gate in July. Myron was there and maybe he can remember how the motors broke down in the A main. Rob and Kevin were also there and maybe they can remember. I can't. I know a Team Scream motor won.

looks like we are in the home stretch to we begin the 2016 U.S.VTA Southern Nationals in Music City U.S.A.

please check the original post as some things have changed....

also we are down to just a few spots left...if you want in...only $30 is the ticket for a weekend plus one of non stop USVTA action

$30 gets you more track time than you can handle....and if you run the Pro or IROC class...you really race for Free....you get bottle SXT($10) shirt($20) and set of rims and tires, pre-glued $25-$30)....that's over $50 worth of FREE items...and how much is entry?....my point is solid...so join in and get some

also we are on hand to give away well over 70 trophies for this event

and not to mention the door prizes and prizes for the TQ signup racers

our tech will be on point, fair and honest....racing will have true winners

rough driving will be docked laps....so a peel and no stop, well you know

also where my Jr VTA?....Ive got a new sweet belt and trophies for them....and the class is FREE....Ive got extra everything if you have a kid that's whats to get out there with my daughter and bang some fenders

I so look forward to seeing everyone and I hope to have a great event
