Motel information:

GrandMark Lodging
3300 28th Street SW
Grandville, MI 49418

[email protected]

$35 per night if you mention that you are with Battle Front. Motel is located less than a 1/4 mile from the track.

We will have pit space for about 75 people, so just in case, if you have a small table and extension cord, you may want to bring it with.

Default 1/8th Scale Electric

Due to the fact ROAR created a new class for 2009, the 1/8th scale electric, we will also join in and run a class of these at this upcoming ROAR event. We already have a half dozen guys who run the 1/8th scales each week at the track, so I cant imagine its going to be hard to get a nice field of these out to run with us at this event. So its official, we will be running a 1/8th scale class for the event this weekend!

Default More News

Here is a quote from Tdevil the track owner at BattleFront for this event:

More breaking news.....

The Slashes are in for the ROAR event. We at BFG have been strong supporters of this class and after giving it consideration I have asked that it be included for this weekend as it was for the Region 5 race. It is another opportunity to highlight the support of our local racers (and those coming just for this event) for this class which is helping to bring more racers into the hobby.

We will run only the "stock" spec class. This means that the only changes allowed are receiver, speed control, shock oil, preload spacers and either the 18 or 23 tooth pinion that comes with (nothing in between.) Everything else must be box stock.

Slashes will be run 8 to a heat and trophies will be awarded only in heats that have a full grid of 8 for the main. For example if there are 3 heats of 8, 8 and 4, trophies would be given out in only the A and B.

If you got 'em bring 'em. Run it as a second class or if it is all you got, bring it on.

Same as for all classes ROAR membership will be required to participate in Saturday's program.

Sorry to make this a last minute addition, but I just didn't feel right not including them.

Default REMINDERS

Just a few quick reminders for everyone. We have pit space for about 50 people in the main pit area. We will have several other tables set up in a secondary area. If you have a small table and an extension cord it may be worth while to bring them with, just in case.

This is a ROAR race, YOU must bring proof of your ROAR membership with you. If you do not have your ROAR membership card with you at the time of check in, you will be required to purchase a ROAR membership before you will be allowed to race, sorry no exceptions.

Friday the doors open at Noon for open practice. At 8:00PM there will be a club race, 2 qualifiers and a main. Cost for this event is $10 for the first class / $5 for each additional. If you are registered for the ROAR event on Saturday your discounted rate for this race is $5 for the first class / $5 for each additional class.

Saturday the doors open at 7:00AM and racing will start promptly at 9:00AM. Cost for this event is $25 for the first class / $15 for each additional class.

Weather report for Friday and Saturday is temps between 35 and 45 degrees with a 30% chance of rain. Travel should be decent for anyone making the road trip to come race. We look forward to seeing everyone come out. The word I am getting is we are expecting a good size group of top level talent from this region, should make for some great racing. See everyone real soon.

It was great to have you all out. Nice to finally meet the Phend family. Good to see the Richards brothers again. Had a good time getting to know all the Horne crew also.

Had some very close racing and the most important thing, I hope everyone had fun. I wish it could have been done about 2 hours sooner.....but such is life. Results for the event are posted at www.fatalimpactracing.com

Hope to see you all again soon. (shameless plug time) Big Kahuna Shootout at Al's track next week. http://www.factorytracksraceway.com/

as usual Great time at battlefront! And It was nice putting some faces to the forum names(Revo, dasupacat).

And a big way to go to Austin Horne! For being a little guy he knows how to drive BIG as the guys in stock buggy and 13.5 buggy found out.
I personally chased him all day long and just couldnt catch him and make it stick. Also ,Al and Austin, sorry about falling my big ass on The buggy while marshalling Got to be one of my more embarrasing moments.

Other than that, great day , and great racing!
