Thats correct Mike. The track is in a huge horse arena building and pitting is just behind that building in a seperate heated building almost just as big. No pop-up tents are needed. Just tables and chairs. Bring as many tables and chairs as you personally need. No shortage of space.

If any one is interested in RV hook ups at the race, please send me a PM. I will need to arrange it with the fairgrounds.

This'll be my first time out there. Are there outlets for chargers etc or do we need to bring extension cords.. or our own power supplies?

You will definitely need your own power supply. I would bring an extension cord and power strip just in case you have to pit a ways from an outlet.

If you mean power supply - Generator, no, you dont need it. The building has outlets all along the walls, but you may need extension cords to make it to the outlet.

For the Mapston this year we are going to use a new format to try to give people in the lower main more run time. Basically what is going is 10 people will automatically go in to each main except the A main which 8 people automatically go in. Then 1st and 2nd from each main bump like normal to the next main. Then 3rd, 4th, 5th from each main will go to the last chance main that will take place directly after the B mains. The starting order in the last chance main will be in reverse order where the lower main driver start higher up on the grid.

This will only be done in classes that have enough mains to make it work. Probably just buggy and truggy. Also the number of drivers that go to the last chance main can change depending on the number of mains.

Below is an example of how this will play out. Hope this makes sensce



A main
1.
2.
3.
4.
5
6
7
8
9 bump from B (1st)
10 bump from B (2nd)
11 bump from LC (1st)
12 bumpo from LC (2nd)


15 min Last Chance Main

1. 5th from E main
2. 4th From E main
3. 3rd from E main
4. 5th from D main
5. 4th from D main
6. 3rd from D main
7. 5th from C main
8. 4th from C main
9. 3rd from C Main
10. 5th from B main
11. 4th from B main
12. 3 from B main.
Top 2 advance to A main

B main
1.
2.
3.
4.
5
6
7
8
9
10
11 bump from C
12 bump from C

C main

- Stock tires that came with the car
- no weight requirement

I hope this helps.
Regarding tires, what about running Blitz tires on the SC10.
Gotta allow Brand interchanging, as long as it's a stock CORR tire?

i dont run a Short Course truck but my opinion is that people should be able to run whaterver tire that they want as long as it resembles a real tread design. for example i dont think that the JC goosebumps resemble a real tread and goes away from the "real" look.

just my 2 cents.
