Nice race Jeff. Congrats on your win, and that was some smart driving at the end of that race. See you in Cleveland.

A lot of Casino's pump oxygen into the AC to help keep people awake. This remove's a lot of moisture from the air (what little there is in the desert anyway!!) and I think is why the track dried out so fast. Ive never had such bad nose bleeds, chapped lips and sinus infection in my life!! There was something in the air in that place!!

Those looking for more rubber tire BIG race action-dont forget the Halloween Classic has a rubber tire class for the first time. Dont make it the last time!!!
I started out with a diff but my buddy made me put in a 1 way to keep up with the others...go for the 1way if you can drive it, if its too inconsitent for you, just run a tight diff.

I had terrible luck the whole weekend like many others, I loved the race, but hated the place. I would be willing to pay a little more if It was closer to the strip action or at least in old vegas. My first Scotty run race and it was like being part of something actually professional. Thumbs up.

i couldnt agree with you more EA. The race was great. Air quality sucked, nose bleeds, chapped lips and sinus problems. something was up with that place. Lack of traction was weird, not used to that.

Boomer said it was probably the AC and fact that it was on a concrete floor emitting cold air as well. I though the chapped lips was just me but now that the rest of you bring it up, it was bad. I didn't have issue with the nosebleed and sinus headaches for I live in a dry climate anyhow here in UT. I honestly want to consider running foam next year if the traction is gonna be as bad as it was this year. I guess I was spoiled with how well it was last year.

Yeah I felt like I had a constant slow nose bleed the whole time, but it didn't bother me much. I figured it was just from, I dunno... maybe because it's a desert ?

Didnt Mythbusters prove that Casino's dont pump oxygen into Casino's.

Either way I think the AC/HVAC system they had sucked all the moisture out of the air and in return sucked all the traction compound out of the track. I had to wet my sponge for my soldering iron 2 times a day and everyone that I talked to had chapped lips or dry skin. The temp in the room would change so fast and you could feel the air moving as soon as the AC kicked on....the room would go from like 75deg to 69deg in minutes....then back up an or so hour later. When the room would start to heat up the traction would get higher but as soon as the AC would kick you would almost watch the groove go away. Some people say it was because the use of 2 stage foam tires that made the groove/traction so low. I donít know as I have never seen that happen before but there were a lot of 2 stage tires run at this race. I donít think any other traction compound would have worked any better in the condition and it was the same for everyone.....some just adapted faster then others.

All in the All the race was great.....the hotel service and location could have been better in my book.

Luckily I didn't have any nosebleeds, but I sure had an over-abundance of petrified boogers lodged in my nose!

I have been to vegas a few times and that has never happened to me before, I was there for 4 days prior to racing and after 6 hours in the room my lips were chapped.
