I got to stop by briefly after work this morning to watch. Some darn nice racing folks! As people have said, Barry Baker was amazing on the track. I also don't know if it was his motor or his belt setup, but his Xray was soo quiet with a very unique suttle whine that allowed you to instantly recognize his in the blur of the passing cars. And man... his lines.... wow.

Mike Blackstocks run in the (first?) round of 1/12th was great to watch as well. Even though one of his (rims?) went south he managed to keep his 1/12th under control even though it wanted to spin out in the corner.

I heard one or two comments from the pits about the smaller size and only being asphalt. I hope though the outstanding performance of the SIR track crew, and the close racing that dealt less with highest rpms versus punch and having consistent tight lines.; in turn was able to show the doubters that larger isn't always better.

Oh and thanks Ralph Burch for taking a moment to discuss with me the "smaller" scales.

I think it had a lot to do with the last minute change of tracks.
The SIR crew did a great job of putting it all together in such a short amount of time.
That and maybe because it was an indoor event.

Why take a national indoors when the summer is up hot and running outside? And such a small track too.

Seen from a foreigners pow, thats unlogical

Sean Cochran was TQ in stock. They use Qual points on Asphalt and not rocket round.

I don't know for sure, but last year at our nationals I think the reason we had the turnout we did was early promotion, we started "hard" promoting as soon as we knew when we got the race in October 2005 (maybe it was September ...don't remember) ...as in sponsors secured within 45 days, websites setup, constant "pimping" of the race on forums and via word of mouth. The other reason I think was the online signups with credit card and paypal payment options, although we did take the CC and paypal fee hits, we felt it would be worth it in cash flow and people able to sign up early not having to wait till the last minute to send out cash.

ROAR rule 5.12.1 :

constitutes a hazard to the other vehicles in the race. This includes insufficient skills to
compete in the class, unsportsmanlike driving, and intentional hitting of other vehicles,
intentional short coursing, intentional corner cutting, intentional blocking when being
overtaken, illegal or improper vehicle numbers and other such acts

If I can find it in the rule book, I'm sure the officials could too.

The whole Masters field in A3 was put on warning before the start of the race.
What? for 1 maybe 2 drivers that were guilty?
A restart was called, the start was better than the 2 previous main starts, and better than the restart.
There was some ugly blocking of the lead car for 3 turns on the final lap, nothing was done to the blocker even though it was done to slow the leader down for a possible tie breaker.

Fred Forg
10th Masters stock.
That was just part of it in my "rating", when you look at the whole event from signups - to checkin - to race scheduling - to calls - to rules established . ...and using last years nats as a "benchmark" to compare to, that is where my rating came from.

the nationals were orginally scheduled for peel it raceway, also a indoor track about a hour or so north of seattle, why, because no other roar tracks applied for the nationals. peel it closed so the race was transferred to SIR, why, because many had already bought plane tickets that weren't refundable, or had made travel plans to seattle. Sir is only other roar track in the area. there is a large very nice outdoor track 30 minutes south in tacoma, but they are not a roar track and have no interest in becoming one. low key, fun time, club racing is what they are into.

and on wednesday and thrusday when seattle set records highs in the 90 degree mark, most if not all were very happy to be racing in a air conditioned track.
