Slim won't be anouncing so I don't think you will be able to run. Jimmy Babcock is.

You won't be a ble to run until they are DONE with the oval. It is an actual series race and you CAN NOT run, even in the parking lot (unless you have spektrum) during the race.

I'm here right now and they're almost ready to start the race.

I'm at socal twice a week, sundays and fridays for offroad stock truck, probably the most competitive class there. I haven't raced since I got my GTX fixed, after losing 2 races because of it. Anyone else race offroad?

I race there when I can. I have been doing the JBRL though which has been taking up a lot of my "racing time".

It is pretty insane with the JBRL. The series is averaging over 200 entries per race right now on sundays!. The last two races were held on holiday weekends as well. If anyone has not experienced a JBRL race you should come out and try one. They are super long days but a lot of good close racing.

Thanks. Rev has been a good track for me in the past. Gas racing helps with those rougher tracks!

It was a long day. I have not done something silly like that in a while. That was my bone head move for the series. I usually have one heat were I do something stupid like that! Thanks for you help!

The JBRL race would have been funner if you could make that double from the entire face of the jump, instead of just the outside or inside of it (Stock at least). It also would have been funner if I didn't get taken out and if I didn't lose 5 spots because of it, ohh well.

Revelation is that way. They always have a big jump that is hard for stock truck. You have to remember this is a Gas truck and 8th scale track so those jumps were pretty small for thos cars. You may have a hard time at The Dirt as well but the other three tracks we have left should not be a problem. I agree on the rough driving. I saw a lot of pretty rough driving that was not being called as much as one would like it to be.
