Please add Nitro TC ? Even with 10-15 Minute A Main, I'd be happy.

Ok so how about 4 races that can run Nitro with 3 counting of the 4. Sound good?

Fasttrax NW
Fantasy World
Timezone
4 Seasons

Cool *Not trying to Cause Problems*

In an attempt to make certain I'm "Correctly Misunderstood", consider the <tongue stuck out but a mere punctuation error.
As a purely practical matter, TZRP and FW are the only "Nitro Friendly" venues worthy of doing, as 4 Seasons and Fast Traxx, though doable, are a bit tight/hazardous, but challenging.

Hence, the statement about the long distance trek to TZRP and not running a Nitro Car. And BTW, Thanks for the effort in putting together this series guys.

We here you Lynn...Yesterday in our little meeting we wanted to leave Nitro off as the turn outs are small and your right about only 2 tracks that are really Nitro friendly. I did add in the first post more info would be posted and that was going to include that tracks can still offer other normal club race classes. Like Nitro TC!

Points series isn't worth it for 2 tracks and almost not for 3. We could do 3 tracks with all three counting too. But with 4 seasons allowing Nitro we don't want to leave them out. But you guys can just run the class at FW and TZ and we don't do awards.

Series is for the racers and tracks but it has to break even to even be worth adding to the points/awards.

When Kody and I sat down to discuss putting this series together we wanted to make the series about the race and racers and racer input is welcome. Doesn't mean it's going happen but it will be discussed and added if possible as above.

So we have a question for you the racers. Heat and main length. . Would you like 5 minute quals and 8 minute mains or keep it the standard 6 and 6?

I know we weren't much, but we did have 4 from BC come down to run Nitro at Fasttrax. We all brought our other classes too!

If I am able to attend (work), I'd prefer 5 minute qualifier, 6 minute mains. I'll be happy tho at whatever is decided.

Thanks turtle and panda.
