Before you met me I was a oval racer since 1995. I had sponserships with Hyperdrive,RC4LESS.COM,Bandit R/C, and Pro-Match Batteries. Plus, a room full of trophys collecting dust back in SC. Dirt oval would be something fun to do, but I don't know.

well a few things running threw my mind, Its not that i am NOT interested in dirt oval, but I dont want to spend 500-1000 for a whole new "set-up" plus like Jason stated g's had a oval put in for 2 years, was CLOSE to a oval track that shut down and still never got used, the clay, money, and man power that would be put into the oval could all be put into the off road. I think one superb track with everyones main attention focused on one track there is more of a chance of a big turn out, rather then "dividing" the races between 2 tracks.

As far as the numbers go, I have mixed feelings, I agree it would make the announcers job easier, but I am one of those ppl that spend the money for "walt disney to throw up on my car" maybe its just me but I like to have a nice looking body, especially when i travel to other tracks, a nice looking body not only attracts attention to your car but it also looks good for your home track. I know if i saw a bunch of spray bombed basher looking cars I dont think I would want to go to that track for fear of getting bashed to death. So basically as far as the numbers go, I am game as long as they can be applied to my walt disney body in a tasteful manner and not look like Fred from lowes came and glued house numbers to my hood.

I couldnt agree more...
but thats only my opinion, and also from someone who has never run oval either.

Have fun, we'll all cheer you on as you race against yourself. That will probably work for you though, because just being Brad Blontz is a battle against yourself everyday

Default New SCT Spec Rules

Well I guess since it looks like Rob is back a will cancel my order for that new EB Mods Engine that I was planning on running in my Spec Class Slash. I was liking some of the new "Rules" that were being implemented for the new B & T Raceway.

Glad you are feeling better Rob.
