Hi Guys,

Sorry if this question has been asked already.

How is the track going to be ran this year. I know last year it was very wet and we could run slicks. That was dialed!

Thanks,
JP

It should be close this year to what it was last year.

Not quite. It is an X-Factory prototype made mostly from X-6 parts and a few homemade parts. There will probably be 3 X-60s at CRCRC.

I left Chazz a voicemail. Brian Kinwald and Paul Sinclair are two of the drivers racing for X-Factory.

You can probably put them both down for the 3 mod classes

We will have a couple mobile hobby shoops on site, and two others about 10-15 minutes down the road. There are a couple more that are just a bit farther drive.
