Default Tri-Cities RC Offroad Racing 2014



2014 Tri-Cities Offroad Racing
*2 qualifiers (Headsup or Staggered depending on class or feel of the day)
*SemiFinal and Final Mains (classes with 20 or less will have semifinals, those with more than 20 may see quarterfinals, semi, finals!)
*Top 10-12 will make the Final- (5-6 from semi A, 5-6 from Semi B, or all 10 if only one Semi)
*If all that seems confusing think of it like supercross, you qualify to place in a heat. then race for the main event (if less than 10 cars then you race for grid position in main)
* Pricing is $15 for first, $10 for second, $5 for third on
*Kids 12 and under are $5

CLASSES
*Novice- For development of talent and potential bump into Sportsman when skill level grows. All Chassis, all electronics, less skilled drivers 2S Hard Case Batteries
*Sportsman SC- 2WD SC Truck or 2WD SC buggy with open electronics No sponsors of anykind. 2S Hard Case Batteries. Great development class to battle for the lead instead of back of the pack in mod
*Modified SC- 2WD SC Truck open electronics. ok to run both classes if you like 2S Hard Case Batteries
*2WD Buggy- 2WD Buggies , open electronics, 2S Hard Case Batteries
*4WD Buggy- 4WD Buggies , open electronics 2S Hard Case Batteries
*2WD Truck- 2WD Racing Truck , open electronics 2S Hard Case Batteries
*4X4 SC- 4x4 SC , open electronics 2S Hard Case Batteries
*1/8 Truck- Truggy and Monster Truck combined in this class, must have 3 to race. Has not had great entries in past, may not be available every race
*1/8 Electric Buggy- 1/8 Electric Buggies , open electronics Max 4S Hard Case Batteries. Will be separated from nitro as long as the classes can support themselves then combined
*1/8 Nitro Buggy-1/8 Nitro Buggies , Motor Size same follow ROAR. Will be separated from nitro as long as the classes can support themselves then combined




Short Course racing has dropped off in our area and it seems it is a trend around the country a bit, so there will be NO NW SC Nationals this year.
Instead we are filling the slot with something a little different.

2014 NW Buggy Championships *more details to come in seperate thread at later date*

Joe, it seem that SC only races are not a viable option right now in the area so we are trying something new. Should SC racing pick back up or the buggy race concept fail then we may have to bring it back for 15

Will try my hardest to get to the buggy race. Gotta drag rocky out there too. I love coming up that place. Might skip regionals and save up for this race. I'll spread the word down here about this awesome facility and great times.

Justin,

Looking forward to the Buggy Champs race... I noticed that there isn't a nitro buggy class listed on the flyer... I would think that since nitro buggy is arguably the 2nd most prestigious (behind 2WD of course ) "buggy" class there is, it would be offered as a class...no?

Either way, I'm looking forward to the race even if it is elec. only

2WD Truck has been low to avg the past 2 years. It looks to have a few more locals this year but is still expected to avg less than 8 entries
2WD SC Mod- Pretty decent, SC has died a bit so this year is unknown
1/8 Truck- Start of the year with out of towners is decent, fades quickly when its just local, has not been consistent.
I didnt know which truck class you meant so gave em all

Super soft bar type tire (Barcode, Beam, suburb etc..)

There is still the possibility of adding classes, I did not personally fire up this class list for the Buggy race, but we have heard the nitro buggy comment more than once. Its on our radar
