The Following is a list of drivers who have either already paid or are included by a Team/Group representative in their list submitted to us. We still have 1 team to submit a list, assuming their usually attendance we expect to only have about 20 pit-spots available.

If your name is not on this list and you plan to attend please contact us, the flyer is on the 1st post in this thread.

Yes. You will need male 3.5mm bullets. They are not included with the motors/entry.

Why do we need bullets if we are buying the motor? Easier to turn in for tech or something?

Even though the motors are bought you still must use bullets per the Can-Am rules unless they have decided otherwise.

At the Southern Nats we turned in our motors each evening and received a different motor the next day. Since people are actually buying/keeping the motors for the Champs, I'm assuming motors will not be turned in once purchased?

If that's the case, I'm hoping tech does a thorough inspection of each motor at the beginning of each round or at least the top few from each heat? You hope people won't "doctor" a motor after hours or something but there's always the "what if".

We are discussing a few checks and balance options to prevent this. More to come in a week or so.

Here is an updated driver list. Current count is 173 drivers and 193 available pit spaces. There are still a few drivers who have not gotten class info to us, we need to finalize motor orders soon and we expect to fill up in the next 2 weeks as well, and drivers who have not provided classes to us will be moved to the bottom of the list if/when we start a waiting list. Also any drivers who plan to add classes, there will be limited availability to do so after the motor order is submitted, if you're adding classes let us know now.

updated below

190 entries, this will be the last list of names we'll post. We'll be working to finalize a list by class and hopefully have that close to completion by the end of next week so we can order motors. Again, if you want in, you better hurry, if you need to get us class information do it THIS WEEK or we'll let Mike Wise select what classes you run.

193 spots so far, we can fit a few more than planned. I just ordered extra tables and we can place a few pits along the walls.
BUT, I'm setting the deadline of Monday morning October 22nd or when we reach 210 pit spots which ever comes first, to get signed up.
Also racer running any Can-Am class will have till Wednesday the 24th to sign-up for those classes, I will be submitting the motor orders Wednesday Evening.

Just a friendly reminder, you have about 3 weeks left to book the hotel to get the group discount rate.
