Just an opinion because I want to see all the best drivers attending, however, if they didn't adhere to the registration process then it's their own fault for not going. I'm a slow guy too lol I guess I still have the "olympic spirit" going on, I have a few favorites to win but I'll be happy if anyone from the USA wins

Just like the Olympics, if you don't qualify you don't race. They have to get their paperwork in on time too. I agrre though, it really takes some of the luster off the race. I have a feeling they'll find a way to work those guys in.

Tebo will get in

slow coach - Anyone in the main has a chance to win... at the national or world level who wins really comes down to circumstances that are out of everyones hands. If you need to put a word to it, chance and luck come to mind.

Thumbs up

This will be a great race with all the new buggies out Xray, Mugen, Kyosho, ODO, Hot Bodies.... +..

I think Josh Wheeler is the sleeper,... he was the fastest car on the track in the US Nationals A-main. Yes.. faster than Truhe, Tebo, Kortz, & Drake, his lap averages where faster than anyone else's, and he also set the fastest single lap by anyone in the whole 60min A-main. I know he didn't win the Nationals after flaming out early in the race, but don't count him out of the A-main at the worlds.
