Still not getting why other tracks aren't getting the stadium truck class. I didn't race truck this year but would gladly have traded my runs in SCT for truck (except we have a points series so gotta stick with what I started with!)

some places (like where you are) might be good for stadium. other places not so much. a d main is certainly a lot of popularity where you are.

Theres an indoor track during the winter 2 hours from me and they have lots of ST's as well, they're cool but I think many go 2wd buggy then 4wd buggy, and not many run more then 2 cars generally, if they do SC/Pro4 seem to be the next choices.

That is awesome to have that many stadium trucks OP...Our local track had 4 trucks last week and 8 last night...Supposedly 6 more trucks are gonna be there next week...Growing popularity slowly but surely...I like this class as it forces the drivers to be clean and no bash fests like in SCT...ST is what I cut my teeth on in RC and very happy to see it trying to make a comeback

I still dont get it ethier man .

D-Main wow thats a good sign at least for the class !

My local indoor carpet offroad track has about four or more Staduim trucks each Saturday. The other indoor carpet track we have to bring a group of locals with the ST trucks to get a class there.

Other times when we are not there its no Staduim trucks at all .

Personally i think 2wd SC indoors is just a big hack feast not racing .

having no indoor to run because the track closes soon is a big reason.

Most can only cope with a St and race outdoor's..

Also most here don't even realize your track only club races every 2 or 3 weeks.

It takes much more skills to drive a 2wd ST and 2wd Buggy than a 2wd SC. It takes finesse you have to time your passes.

mikes is possibly running a April series so the track will be open for awhile yet.....also stadium truck is pretty big at skagit river raceway during outdoor season....i'm just glad i live around here, there are such good turnouts and such great racing.

Stadium is definitely a solid class now at OCRC and is continuing to pick up entries. I'll probably pick one up too.

Yes, you are totally correct. It's not great that you only have that much with both Seattle and Tacoma and Kent and Auburn and (all those other small cities) to draw from. I'm not trying to cause a pissing match for entries.

My main point is that people love to race stadium truck and we frigging go to C or D main all the time. Why aren't you others pulling your weight?
