I've confirmed with Dan that ARC will be open at 1 PM Sunday. What type of vehicles are you guys going to be running?

Attention Racers
Due to lack of participation, ARC Raceway will no longer be open on Saturdays. The track will continue to be open for Sunday practice and major events.

There are a few reasons. The biggest one is that the layout is only changed.......maybe.......twice a year. Turnouts were HUGE (120+) for quite a while but when a layout was left unchanged for 5-6 months.....people lost their excitement and willingness to participate. As i see it, as time between fresh layouts started to increase, the turnout started to decrease....pretty simple.
