If possible please, please, please add a few more inches of room between the pit lane and edge of arena. When wide boy pit persons come running behind pit lane it got mighty crowded.

A big prob seems when each driver has 2 pit-men and the pit men from the next race try to get down there early.

Crowded pit lanes is one of my rc pet peaves. I hate having 2 heats in the pit area at one time. Makes it tight and uncomfortable. That is not an issue at the PNB. You will see why when you arrive.

Have you ever been to this race before? Have you ever run your vehicle at 3:30 in the morning and then raced it a few hours later? If you have and did more power to you. If there is slack in the schedule, I will be wrenching or SLEEPING. LOL

Actually my qualifier was closer to the 400 to 430 range. Then got lost going back to the hotel, then back to the venue a couple of hours later to figure out when my main was.

The reason why I asked - last year 4 qualifiers were planned but ran out of time. I think... I dont think I dream that! Lol

LOL You are correct. There was 4 planned last year. I was running at 3:30 and pitting someone at 4:30. The guy I was pitting for was afraid I was going to fall asleep between fuelings. We might as well run four if the entries are low. It is not like we are going to get any real sleep. Lol

Just my .02, but i don't think we'll fall short of a sellout.
What with the big names, world records, and it becoming more of an annual event i'm worried about getting signed up in time.
