agree then it would be a "masters" class or should it be called "legends"

Entry form should be up by the end of the month if all goes right....


We are expecting a sell out, so make sure when it comes out...get your entry in soon. We have confirmations from MANY of the top racers across the nation, as well as from many of the top teams.


As for tires, we are testing 2 companies right now and waiting to hear from a third......end result though, ROAR makes the final call based on our suggestions.

We are finishing up the sponsorships...

XRAY and Team br00d Racing are headlines sponsors, while we wait for a response on the final spot....

Class sponsorships are available....contact me directly.

We are working to see if 1/12th stock may be added and possibly masters being removed.....

Any other news you are looking for?

1/12th stock indoor asphalt is awesome. I just wish I could get off for this race. We have a indoor asphalt track in Frederick, MD I race at all the time. Tennis court grade asphalt. Nice and smooth. AWESOME for 1/12th scales. We use CRC pro-cuts for the 1/12th scales.

Ah man ...don't drop masters

Actually just FYI, when we first had our bid approved the classes were:

TC Stock
TC 19T
TC Mod
12th Stock
12th Mod
TC Masters

....ROAR got a lot of pressure to add 12th 19T so ROAR allowed a 7th clase (12th 19T). The reality is we almost had to cancel 12th scale mod as we only had 6 entries by the 30 day cutoff (which is set not only for late fees but so that we can get trophy orders, pit towel order, etc in). There were actually more masters entries than 12th scale mod and 12th scale 19T ...almost as many as 12th scale stock. ..you can go here:

http://www.gearchart.com/index.cfm?refclubid=1

And select signups from the menu to see the signups.

Anyhow, I know you gotta do what you gotta do, but just providing that information above as an FYI.

Actually, as I think about it there were some signups after I had to cut off the online signups, plus some people that didn't show to race or didn't race some of the classes they signup up for, the *actual* counts can but figured out by seeing the final results here:

http://www.2006roarnats.com and clicking on the "Nationals final results" links towards the bottom of the page.

They where:

TC Mod - 37 (a - c main, 7 in d main)
TC 19T - 45 (a - d main, 5 in e main)
TC Stock - 48 (a - d main, 8 in e main)
12th mod - 9 (only an a main)
12th 19T - 17 (a main, 7 in b main)
12th stock - 21 (a - b main, 1 in c main)
TC Masters - 21 (a - b main, 1 in c main -- race 23, was not run, but had 1 racer)
