Hard to offer a class that usually has the lowest support at big races plus zero local support. Classes offered are based on what is in the best interest of the race for turnout.

Totally understand. Class seems to be growing and is a blast to race. Cleveland had a good turnout and was just hoping it was going to be offered at the Nats too. Maybe someday...

Sorry to say RNewlon but GTR is not that big a of a class. It's only good size at USIC because there's a lot of pan car guys in the NE. Every other big race that offers this class barely has 10 entries.

Waited and Ramada is all but packed out, they had to call us back with a room. So like EA said if you haven't already made reservations do it.

The Quality inn is going to be the best one for the money. But there are only 25 rooms there.

Anyone who says they cant give you at room for that weekend because its too far away is silly.

I setup two more hotels today. These are both with in 8-10 minutes of the track depending on traffic. These rates are only good till middle of Feb and only 30 rooms at each hotel. Use the link below for reservations.

Sleep Inn 82.00 a night (Normally 149.00 a night that week)

https://www.choicehotels.com/reserva...lanCode=BZZTHT

Holiday Inn (Brand new Hotel) 119.00 a night (Normally 189.00 for that week)

https://www.holidayinn.com/redirect?...wfullsite=true

Do NOT wait too long to get your hotel.
