Thats because not enough people are showing up for racing. Was there this saturday and there was a handful of us so it turned into a practice day. ARC races every Saturday, gates open at 1100 racing starts at 2.

the only thing that sucks about the sat. races is you still have to have a transponder! if that wasnt required than you would see a better turn out!

It is stated on the website home page that PT's are not required for all SC racing. Not sure if you are a SC racer, just stating current requirements for ARC. For the 1/8th scale racers, I agree that there should be transponders. It is too hard to hand count them. SC racing is a little slower and manageable to hand count.

This is a terrible statement. Having a transponder is for your own benefit and removes human error. That way there is never an argument about how many laps you have completed. A large amount of people who race have transponders so counting a few would not be difficult.
Please refrain from talking down on arc (or any track). Owning and operating one can not be an easy experience and by no means "lazy."

Wow....Nice Attitude!! Well, I have a transponder because I was not "lazy" and I went out and purchased one. Yeah money is tight but I took up a side job and made it happen. In all honesty it didn't quite happen like that but to quote someone who is much brighter than myself "whatever." Transponders are definitely for everyone's benefit but I don't think it would be that hard to hand count a few cars so they can race. Also, you can always race and just not get counted.....just race for the fun of driving on the track.

Why are you so upset? You must be a younger individual, because you are throwing a tantrum. Yes when you call the owner of the track "lazy" you are talking down. Just show up, thats what I used to do before I purchased my transponder. Used to race my SC8 against the truggies. Was a good time.
By the way, what are you racing?

Before displaying your internet bully capabilities (which you are clearly blessed with), try reading my complete post. Here is the important part.....

I was actually promoting racing WITHOUT a transponder just for FUN.

Not talking crap at all, you just don't understand what I am saying. If you didn't have such a terrible attitude, I would let you borrow one of my 16 extra transponders cause I just got a bunch from my Pops for my Birthday.

Wayne is such a nice guy! Back on topic........I know all parties in this conversation and all I would like to say is this....Chunk if you wanna go race ARC then do so. We all race there and have a blast. If you need hand counting I will go up in the booth and do it myself. Brandon, and Vince are both really helpful guys as well as you Chunk, so there is no way we all cant get you out on the track. I will help you out in any way possible as would Brandon and Vince. Come on out to ARC and we will get you racing and having fun. No harm No foul. P.S., AMB has just released the mylaps transponders and they sell for 85bux a pop. AMB has a stronghold on the market, kinda like Mcdonalds with the Mcrib. CYA guys at the races!
