Stadium trucks will run on both nights as some of the SCT guys have got them and will run for points on Tuesday nights

We also have some buggy guys looking at getting them as well for some fun so it will depend on numbers if there is a points system for Wednesday

Main night will Tuesday for trucks that's for sure.

We will definitely have stadium trucks on Tuesday nights, as most guys now have 2wd SC and then Stadium Trucks. On Wednesdays, we need a few more people and classes, to make it worth while, so we felt we need to start running them then too, to hopefully get a few of the buggy guys involved who would normally only race a 2wd or 4wd buggy. We will start it this Wednesday, to see how we go. It will probably only be a demo class for the first few races, to see if we can get more into it. The way things are, we have a few people who can only come on a Tuesday, who run SC and Stadium, and like your case, people would prefer to only run Wednesday, which is understandable. We are very happy that people are coming down from Brisbane, that's great, so would try to make it as easy as possible!! So stick with us, we're trying to make it a class on Wednesday as well

Yew, more stadium trucks!
Are you ready to take on the current stadium truck champion?
(Yes, I'm milking this for as long as possible, which is most probably tomorrow night!)

So in saying that SC is becoming more and more popular (and seeing how stable they where on Sunday) what is the more preferred class to Run 2wd or 4wd? Stock or Mod?
