Default Should 1/8th scale and 1/10th scale be separated???

On the national level do you think 1/8th scale and 1/0th scale gas should have their own separate races? Since 1/8th scale is becoming very popular, it is sometimes hard for track to build layouts around both classes. There are 1/10th scale monster trucks and 1/8th scale monster trucks which is another growing class. This could also open the door for sportsman and expert.

Lets hear some thoughts...

There are already too many races every year, there's no need for six more.

ROAR and the powers-that-be that decide what happens for the national championships need to worry more about what happens at the local level and less about the national level.

good point, I know it is hard for guys like Matt, kinwald, drake to hit every race. There not much roar can do on the club level, I know at my track it is pretty much run what you brung and run it in the right class. Most gas races have already separated the classes by the days, which is a good idea if the balance is close to 50/50 10th scale and 1/8th scale and in a lot of cases 1/8th scale out weighs 10th scale.
