Default Thunder RC Raceway - Nashville TN

well the indoor season is going strong. 56 entrees at the indoor dirt track a couple saturdays ago 20 or so Oval guys on most Firday night and 10 to 15 onroad guys with always a heat of 12th stock (we love our 12th scales) and touring stock whenever we run. new fasttrak CRC ozite for the full onroad and 2 year old carpet on the oval. yes depending on the weekend we are racing 1/8th buggy and truggy (.21 motor limit) indoor on the new longer track. and if you have a gas truck it's the most competive class we have as the last 2 "A" mains had the top 2 on the same lap. just because it's winter doesn't mean you have to put up the nitro! check out the calander and results over at

First the race reposts for this past weekend
Oval Friday
With michael skeen getting back to the track with his new hyperdrive and resetting tq 83/4:02.75 and main track record to 82 4:00.85 I think oval is going to get more fun. see the results here
Offroad Saturday
let me say that it was fun calling the races Saturday night/sunday morning. with 125 entrees for a club race we had some of the closest mains I think you can have as one was lost by .01 second. Dan Reino in Gas truck and Aaron Bigger in 1/8th Buggy taking the top spots in our 2 largest classes with both having nearly 40 entrees each. Even our electric classes were close races. The best show was Jermey Newsome bumping from the D to the B and missing the A by 1 second. check out all the results here
Onroad Sunday
back to a regular groove with onroad no records set but the "B" main qualifing top 4 was seperated by 5 seconds and the "B" main proved to be intense. see the results here


now a word from the track owner Michael Skeen

we weren't expecting that many people we apologize for the lack of pit spaces and that late hours. I know several people had to go home before it was over.
Robert did the best he could to keep the races flowing as smooth as possible especially since it was double our highest entry count for the year.
We are looking at either starting earlier on the big weekends say 1pm or doing a pre-entry system and limiting the number of entries we want to make sure everyone gets what they paid for we just had no idea that many people would show up. I believe the racer shoud get 3 heats and the mains for their money.
We will be more prepared for next time and make sure everyone has a good time. Sorry for the long hours.
Any suggestions is appreciated. Let me know what you guys think on changing the start time and or pre entries

thanks

Michael Skeen

Default Thunder RC Nashville, TN Indoor Winter Blast CASH PAYOUT Feb. 23rd

Last time we had a big race like this in december we had over 100
entries come out and take home some money...

I'll be adding more details as I get them ironed out. In addition I
will add $1 per entry in each class to the winners cash payout. so if
you have 25 8th buggies the winner will get an extra $25 for the win
on top of the regular payout.

We will also be changing the main order like some of you have
suggested run the d's all nitro classes, c's all nitro classes, b's
all nitro classes, then a's of each nitro class. Electric will still
be run first that part won't change.

we will try and get an air horn for the start of the mains so there is
less confusion and we'll use it at 5 min intervals so you guys can
know approx. what time you are into the race.

We will be having a friday night warm up race just like last time for
those that want it. $10 entry 2 heats and a main. we got done at
midnight or so last time.

here are some details below that we have so far.

Open at 7am
Racing at 11am
entries close at 10am
3 heats and mains 1st
entry
$30 Nitro classes 50% payback
$25 Electric classes 40% payback
$20 Sportsman 25% payback

Pay out to top 5 each class
1st 40%
2nd 25%
3rd 15%
4th 12%
5th 8%

(Nitro classes)
8th Buggy
Truggy
10th Gas Truck
CRT .5

(Electric classes)
Open 2wd Truck
19 2wd Buggy (10.5 brushless or 19 brushed)
Mod 4wd Buggy

http://thunder.rc50.com

I would just like to remind all the nitro people that we lock 6 in the 8th classes and 8 in the 10th classes and bump 2. this is nitro only no bumps in electric. we ARE running IFMAR STARTS in the QUALIFING which means that you are on your own clock so when the buzzer goes off you don't all go at once. you go one at a time. first round in the 12345 order that is on the heat sheet then in a 54321 order, and for the third round as you qualified in the heat resort. YOU the driver need to know YOUR position that you are in and only go out in ORDER. don't screw up someone elses race. Also don't crowd the line on the qualifing start it might cause you to miss a lap and I'm not putting it back.
