This was the first Sunday Race schedule. There were only about 15 entries, but it was still fun. 3 rounds of quals, and 25 minute A main.

We are hoping that it will pick up. It was actually cool racing on a sunday afternoon. We were out of there before it got cold.

Results are posted HERE on the results page.

Thanks for the reply. I went to Barona to race. My funds were too low to drive all the way up there. I will for sure try and make it up there soon and bring some SD guys with.

Sweet Donny. That would be great! We are really going to try to get the Sunday race thing to take off.

We have some other things coming up too. Mike (owner) wants to upgrade a lot of stuff around there, but of course track support has a lot to do with that.

Appreciate you grabbing some friends and cruising up to check it out!

Cool Question?

Mike,

Sorry I haven't spoken to you since the Turkey Shootout.... I had fun at Hemet that weekend.... When I got back to San Diego I told a bunch a people to sop by your track some time....

Are you guys running electric short course trucks in the series?

Thanks,

Jeremy

What are the rules for the S.C. stock class? Are any modifications aloud to the trucks such as R.P.M parts etc? Is there a battery limit? LiPo or NiMh? And if you want to particapate in the series do you have to start racing in the beganing? Or can you particpate at any race? Sorry for all the questions just want to make sure I have my ducks in a row. Thanks

Cool thanks for the info! About how long does an average race last? Are the races based on how many laps completed in a set amount of time. Or the first one to " " wins? I haven't ever raced before. Just wanted to find out as much info as possible. Thanks in advance.
