Pretty sad to only see 60 entries. Bright side is there is no excuse not to be done in time for people to catch early evening flights Sunday night.

Plenty of track time for the Nats.

We will have Tc tires for sale at the track(practice & Nats tires) paragon fx2, plenty of waters, sodas & snacks, paper towels & we will have food catered from 11-2ish each day (Thursday - Sunday) $10 a plate.

Please remember to bring your usgt tires in a sealed bag. I only have a few sets in stock.

Bring CASH! No atm machines anywhere close by.

We Will have tables & chairs for all.

If anyone is on the fence please come on down. We have a great track! Absolutely one of the best atmosphere in rc. The local track tech is the best! Give him a shout when you arrive to the track.

Entries are truly sad. 2 years in a row now. Hopefully we will have some more trickle in, not seeing names on there currently that say they are attending..

I know the ROAR list is incomplete. Hebert and Caster are signed up and paid for in Mod Touring but are not currently ROAR members. They should be on the unverified list but are not. We can only hope there are 40 more guys like them that we are not seeing.

ROAR needs to do a better hob promoting their events. I am sure it is easy for them to look at 1/8 and 1/10 off-road and know that they have to do nothing to max out entries. ROAR seems to be fulfilling and obligation rather than trying to fill the field when it comes to on-road.

They can start with lowering entry fees so that they are in line with other on-road events. And promote the competitors on social media. The fact that Ryan Maifield is signed up is newsworthy but you would never know he was coming.

Regarding the Reedy Race Invitational class, we have pretty much settled on inviting the top 5 in Mod TC from the ROAR Nats so that is a target to shoot for.

But even with a low turnout the best racers are attending so the competition should be good.
RBLove, DaveVera, dawgmeat and 2 others like this.

No can do 4 days for me, even 2 days is a stretch. Me and a buddy should be able to squeeze Sat Sun in and skip friday's quals.

NM, a buddy of mine brought up seeding which is done on Thursday, I overlooked that.
