I heard that the Race has been cancelled and that they are using Qualifying Order to determine Finishing Order..... if so then that really blows! If this really is true.... imagine coming all the way from England or Australia for this race?!? Talk about a ruined weekend and part of a wasted trip!

A quick question for whoever was there running 4wd or 2wd

What was the 4wd tire of choice? the 2wd tire of choice?

No traction compound is necessary at SRS. The track surface normally allows for 2 runs on rear tires and 4 on fronts. Major grip and some insane wheelies down the back straight in Mod if you are not careful. Not uncommon to see trucks flip over backwards going down the straight from all the traction.

wild cherry- did you hear anyone from england or australia complaining? we missed one day of racing. It rained, and got washed out, the first time in the twenty years of the race being run. We only missed one final each and missed watchin the mains, im sure we will get over, we still had a really good time.

Suggest if you travel from downunder, make sure its an indoor race...


wateva...... ill go back next year if it fits into my plans...
