Not sure after that....I know Robbers, Steenari, and Truhe were in.

I finally broke my Las Vegas curse, and put it solidly in the B-Main..but I'm still upset with myself for spending entirely too much time on my lid. I don't know if I would have had enough to make the main, but it could have been a lot closer. All in all, not too bad for my first ROAR National event since 2001 (and I don't count that..I was still a newbie ).

The track held together quite nicely today, after the track crew got it all straightened back up after yesterday's final bashing by the 1/8th scale buggies. Dark clouds early this morning were chased away in favor of sunshine (and sunburn), and the day ran quite smoothly.

The rumors swirling about what tires will be ran during Sunday's main events were the talk of the track today. Pro-Line drivers are seriously concerned about any of their tires surviving 45 minutes on this track; it is very abrasive, and many of their drivers were reporting severe wear after a five-minute qualifier. Losi's new King Pin may in fact be the choice of our top guys for the main (long-term testing Wednesday and Thursday showed the tire can make it nearly 45 minutes just fine), or we'll end up running T-Bones (the tire that won Silver State).

teamassociated - Tebo is running an O'Donnell tuned RB X12.

Todd - Thanks bro! Wish you were here..to suffer in this ridiculous weather :-P

Skidmore and I turnmarshalled in the same spot all day...he's a VERY nice guy, it was a lot of fun talking to him. He drove really well today (as well as yesterday) and it's nice to see another new face mixing it up out in front. If only it weren't for that darn AE shirt...

A-Main

Tebo
Pavidis
Skidmore
Pudge
Drake
Peanut
Truhe
Saxton
JR Mitch
Jesse Robbers
Jason Ayers

B-Main
Jukka (lost in the tie-breaker to Ayers)
Taylor James
Jason Ashton
Chad Bradley
Alan Horne
Degani
Hara
Waldron (me!)
Jim Pierce
Kortz
Korn

There are 11 cars in each main, with two bump-ups for a total of 13 cars in each main.

He's always been from Oklahoma as long as I've known him. He got his start at RCRC of Oklahoma.

Alford - It's just not right.. guy that nice should have a big TL on his shirt

Chris Reilly and Roger - Thanks!

Jack Smash - I plan on taking one of those bump-up spots away If I can catch up to Jukka early in the race, maybe we can put two more Losis in the show.

I'd rather see another Associated in the show but as long as you keep Kortz out your my new favorite driver. (Your one of my favorites just by being so helpful on this site.)

David - I did a couple times yesterday..hahaha.

He's been the one supplying me with the info as far as what tires the PL guys plan on running in the main. His dad is really awesome as well.

Jack - Thanks for the compliments!

I'd rather see a couple more Losis in the main..because that's my job Kortz was really fast yesterday, just inconsistent. He sat out practice on Thursday and ended up in a heat with only three drivers, and almost made the main (he missed it by a few seconds in the last round).

In news almost unrelated to the race..I've decided that the portion of the O-Zone layer directly above the city of Las Vegas is nearly nonexistent. I've never been this sunburnt, despite applying nearly a third of a bottle of SPF 50 over the course of the few days we've been here. Ouch!

I'm not going to the track today (the rest of my family came up here yesterday after my younger siblings got out of school), but I will have the qualifying results of 1/8th scale qualifying tonight and will have it posted before I leave here tomorrow morning. I will also try to post the results of the mains tomorrow night before I leave to go back home to Escondido
