Hello Ebi! No one signed up early for the masters class at the nationals. I did not think there would be a class but then 11 showed up the week of the race and it was added. Unfortunately since there were no pre entries there were no trophies ordered. I will run anything at my races but need commitments from some of the masters drivers in the form of paid pre entries. Hope you can make it this year!

Cherry - Well since it's a "truck race" all masters would be required to run truck. Now from my experience the master like the super stock speeds so they would be required to run a 10.5bl or 19t brushed. Of course running a slower motor is perfectly legal.

Jimmy,

Since this is the Reedy Truck Race of Champions

AND

Its possible the Associated SC-8 may be in consumers hand by event time

THEN

Could there be a PRO-4 Nitro CORR Class to debut the truck at this event?


How is that for building the hype?
