Yes i have them call me, Some sportman have expressed concern that they have no chance of winning or placing top 3. It would be cool to give payback for at least 10 if there are over 30 sportsman.

Yeah that sounds about right. More than top 3 would be awesome!
Top 5 or 10 would be cool. I'm on the verge of breaking into the expert class.
It sucks because money being on the line would bring out all the sand baggers
And I'm sure more hacking than normal in the sportsman class. I think something should be said when the top 1-2 drivers in sportsman out qualify most of the expert class.

Talking to Dan last night, and it sounds like he has a handle on the situation. He understands sandbagging, and will have an eye on that. Some may not be too happy. He will be looking for hackers, as well as track jumpers, etc.

Payouts will depend on turnout. The more that show, the more it will pay down the line.. Sounds like he got a plan together. Just needs to find out how many show up. He wants to pay more than the top 3. If enough show up, it could pay down to 6th-10th spot in each class.

He will explain everything at the drivers meeting, once he tallies up the entries.

Dan really wants this to be a fun race, as well as give back to the racers. I hope the money will not turn this into a demolition derby!!

Im going to run my practice body!!

No debate.....

$40 and have a chance to get $$ back. ARC for sure!!

Also dont have to worry about parking or having to travel all the way back to Ontario on Sunday or pay for a hotel.

I am thinking $20.00 truggy myself. I am going to go to ARC sat.AM and see what is happening, if it looks like a long day I will take off ,if it looks like a regular day I will run electric truggy. I do not have a nitro rig at the moment so no money race for me.

Wow Anthony! are you gonna bring team SD with you so they can have some fun in sportsman buggy? Jeff, just race your silent truggy even if it looks like it will be a long day..... I will buy you a coke from the snack bar. There will be plenty of racers at this event. Money or not, come on out and race for bragging rights and try some new setups. I think we will all be suprised with the amount of fun we will have on Saturday! See you all out there! even you creeps Jeff and Anthony.

Anyone wanting to race truggy.....normal club racing as usual. I will be there with my truggy as well as buggy. There has been quite a strong showing in truggy the past few weeks.....sportsman, expert and pro. Hopefully there will be a lot of people and racing truggy will be a great way to kill time between buggy heats.
