Zac - Don't quote me on the schedule but I would guess that Thursday would be practice, Friday/Sat would be qualifying and Sunday would be the mains.... Again, I have to go through all the paper work to get everything sorted to know exactly how everything is going to pan out.

Peter - You visited the Toledo track we had. That was only 6,000 sqft. The new place is 10,000 sqft with about 3-4 times the hobby shop, a larger track and nearly double the pit space (and we are building more now that we know we have the Nats).

Andy - Yep!! Get ready as we have some building to do!!!

As far as the date - With the Cactus Race being the same weekend as the ROAR Nats, ROAR decided to push up the dates so it was open for mfg's to attend both events (I think). If we pushed it back it would have to be in April!! It may not be bad but I think it also has to do with the schedules for a lot of people - Remember, this event will be run by the ROAR RMT.

Here's some hotel info for the race:

#1. LaQuinta Inn & Suites
41211 Ford Rd, Canton, MI (1.68 miles away)
734-981-1808

#2. Motel 6
41216 Ford Rd, Canton, MI (1.68 miles away)
734-981-5000

#3. Fairfield Inn
5700 N Haggerty Rd, Canton, MI (1.75 miles away)
734-981-2440

#4. Extended Stay America
2000 N Haggerty Rd, Canton, MI (1.77 miles away)
734-844-6725

#5. Red Roof Inn
39700 Ann Arbor Rd E, Plymouth, MI (2.61 miles away)
734-459-3300

#6. Comfort Inn
40455 Ann Arbor Rd E, Plymouth, MI (2.75 miles away)
734-455-8100

#7. Days Inn
36655 Plymouth Rd, Livonia, MI (3.03 miles away)
734-427-1300

#8. Days Inn
40500 Michigan Ave, Canton, MI (3.30 miles away)
734-721-5200

#9. Super 8 Motel-Canton Twp
3933 S Lotz Rd, Canton, MI (3.37 miles away)
734-722-8880

#10. Holiday Inn Express Canton
3950 S Lotz Rd, Canton, MI (3.37 miles away)
734-721-5500

#'s 1,3,10 are the nicest.....

Bob, the closest airport is Detroit Metropolitan (DTW). This is about 15 to 20 minutes from the track. There are also airports in Flint (FNT) and Lansing LAN, but the two of these are about an hour or more from the track.
