Default ROAR OFF ROAD FUEL NATIONALS - LEISURE HOURS, JOLIET ILLINOIS

Hoping the moderator puts a sticky on this one.....

The event is sold out. We are at 365 entries currently and have a waiting list started.

Entries received by mail that are paid in full and membership is valid through the dates of the event will be added to the list. Full refunds apply should you not make it to the confirm list from the waiting list.

Any other questions, I will attempt to answer as I can. Usually email is best (dmsanchez@cox.net).

I can't wait for this one!! First off road fuel sell out in my recent memory!!

Dawn

well, ok.. thanks for your $$

Just mail in entry flyer, paid and make sure your membership is current through July 19th and you'll be added to the waiting list.

Paid in full and verified membership entries have higher priority.

No, unfortunately, we will be forced to increase the max number of qualifying heats to 28 and only 7 minutes max qualifying time and lower mains at 10 mins, Semi's at 20 and mains at 45, more than likely.

Thats what happens when you have that many entries and only three days to get the job done.

But... its gonna be a blast!

That's about 17 hrs of quals alone. Better look at 5 or 6 minute quals. LOL

Dawn sent my payment in the same day I renewed my membership. I received new rule book in the mail, but I'm not on any of the list.
