Default 2016 U.S.VTA Southern Nationals in Music City U.S.A.

Darkside Productions and myself would like to welcome you back to another great year of some of the best U.S.VTA racing anywhere in the world. Robert Dirla and Thunder RC Raceway will be hosting the event the 6th year in a row. We will be looking to break new grounds and records with a host of great things like reduced entry fees ,bigger and better prizes, best competition and of course plenty of trophies to go around. We will also be adding the I.R.O.C. to the program to go along with the PRO VTA Invite class. I am expecting this years U.S.VTA Southern Nationals in Music City U.S.A. to completely dominate over events of the past five years. I look forward to seeing the best, middle and every average Joe racer from all across the U.S. to be under the Thunder Dome come Sept 22-25th

I was hoping to finally make it this year, but Uncle Dam had other plans for me in September. Any way to possibly get a LIVERC feed?
