Guess what day it is! Guess what day it is! Huh...Anybody? No its not hump day it's oval day. Today starts the HCOT 2013-2014 oval season and they will kick off the season with a first ever Southern Double Header. They will start the weekend at 8am today at PT Raceway and the second half of the weekend will end at The Raceway / The Crawlspace in Beaver in Beaver. So stop on out and support the racers and watch some close racing action.

On-road track build is in progress. On-road/off-road practice tomorrow at 5pm(maybe sooner if I can get here). FYI the on-road track will be setup with smooth pipes. No protrusion to catch any tires. The layout will be car friendly. On-road starts on Oct 12th doors open at 3pm, racing at 5pm.

Can someone explain these abbreviations? What does VTA,WGT and TC stand for? Are the 1/12 scales what is known as pan cars? What does Blinky mean exactly?

VTA= Vintage Trans Am( http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/ )
WGT= World GT car (usually 2wd road course car)
TC= Touring car (4wd road course car)
Pan cars are mainly oval cars but the WGT is a pan chassis also. THey are also 1/10 and 1/12 scale
Blinky= Speed control set to stock mode. No timing or boost added.
21.5. 17.5, 13.5 etc are motor types
