Well, all of the other STL guys backed out on me and I am not going to make a 8-9hour trip by myself so I will see you guys in Chilli in January maybe.

Ken,

Thanks for saving the pit spots for us anyway.

Brian, yes you are correct.

stock buggy brushless
stock buggy brushed

stock truck brushless
stock truck brushed

based on the feedback so far, brushless appears to be the bigger classes

We bought all brand new pipe and layed it down last night and tested the jumps. This layout is fast and flowing, no 180's in it (no pucker sections where you hold your breath). All lanes 9 - 10 feet wide. Lots of elevation changes and rollers, one table top where you hit it wide open. Colton and Steve did an aweseome job packing and watering this track. Tons of traction, based on what I saw last night it should be pink slicks the entire weekend! Hope you can keep your front end down!

Rod, sorry to hear they backed out on you. Hey if it's the cost of the hotel that holds you back from coming alone, I've got room at my house you can stay for free. Even if you can talk just one of them into coming I could put you guys both up for the weekend at my place.

Another option is buy a last minute plane ticket to wichita, you can stay at my place for free and I could haul you back and forth to the track. My buddy from phoenix is also staying with me. Always a fun time.

Let me know!

Ken,

Thanks for the offer but the problem is the drive home. It is 8 hours for me so that puts me driving until maybe 2-3 in the morning. Plane tickets are very pricey right now.

Mack,

Thanks for offering to meet me in KC and drive the rest of the way too.

I will hook up and race with you guys soon...just not this weekend.

Have fun at Hutch everybody!
