Here are some of the classes that we expect to be big:

B-Mod ( B4's with SC10 body mounts and a "Modified" body and no more than 3300kv)

1/10 Late model (any tenth scale 2wd with a late model body and no more than 3300kv)

Novice

Open Oval

Sprint open

I'm sure there is some I'm missing but hope this helps. See everyone tonight 6pm start for some Offroad and Dirt oval!

Had a mix up getting a Bobcat yesterday. So the build is taking place today/tonight. If any one wants to come lend a hand or give some ideas on design we will be at it all night I'm sure.

Forgot to mention a second computer is getting setup for the oval. Should help keep things smooth fast.

As far as the 1/8 scale racing I think it would be cool to have back and its nice to see that there is a group that would support it here at SRS. Some of you guys might remember when I ran gas and I miss doing it! So 1/8 scale is always in my mind and finding the right way to work it back in is something I would like to do.
Well if the dirt oval doesn't work out, then throw this idea at management about expanding for 8th scale. I'm sure it would draw a nice crowd.
I know Glitch tried the dirt oval thing a few months back and there was little interest for it.
Personally I'm selling all my 10th scale cars because 8th is so much more exciting and durable
Good luck with your new track.

Oval looks pretty fun really, especially with like 12 sprints on it!

1/8 is bomb though!

Default Oval Track

Adam/Ricky

I believe the routine starting time for oval was 6 pm. With the temps being forecast for 109 to 110F depending on who you believe, could we start at 7pm racing?

This will be my first Friday night event and work can be a challenge late Friday afternoon. That extra hour would be a help.

While I hope there are a bunch of new racers, I would be surprised with more than 5 heats and that would get us out relatively early Friday evening.

Just a thought, thanks for listening.
