I was there last year and know how the Bump up were done. That is whay I was asking now, if it will be done the same.

Last year I was 20th overall (10th in the B) but because of the BQ screw I also was bumped to 1st in the C!


Thats why I ask if the mains were going to be set with 10 cars and the B main winner bump tot he A and have an 11 car field. The Bump up was fun and exciting to watch but it sucked to be BUmped also with no way of moving back up.....The BQ wasn't the only person "Screwed" LOL

I thought the B mains last year was some of the most exciting racing I have seen. Those guys were battling. I would also like rubber again and I also like the 4 rounds. The new place looks awesome. Can't wait for my favorite race.

Yes I was 29 so I made the "C" in 12th stock trust me I was dreading being 30 and you can't do 11 in the "A" as the version of autoscore they have only allows 10 in a race and yes I know and they know scoring pro does allow more and then that but as I heard it if as long as kenny "scarecrow" is involved in the race he will make sure it never has scoring pro.

Then when would you run the C bump up?
How would a schedule work for that?

Could be an interesting race...

We were over to that area last weekend. Could see the Radison from where we were. IHOP/ Dennys/AngusSteakHouse/RedLobster/Perkins/McDonalds/ChineseBuffet/Mexican
And a host of others all real close to the new hotel and don't forget Downtown Disney is loaded with fine eating places.

One of the great areas only a couple miles away is Downtown Disney - which has a ton of great things to do - day and night:

Another awesome place a mile away is Old Town.

The classic car shows at night are awesome and just the whole place is fun!

One negative of I-Drive is the conjestion at night. You can't even move sometimes... this area has more room, that is for sure!

The main attraction of the 'birds is the racing! We have on-road and oval racing almost 24 hours a day. Always something going on. Very exciting for sure! This year we want to add a band Monday night... we will see on this!

What a week! What a week! We have received so many positive messages and e-mails about the new home. I can feel the bird buzz is in the air!!!! I think it might be a record year (but yes we are limiting entries again)... but at least the best year yet. Several have told me that their families are now coming, that did not want to come in the past... and racers that have missed a few years because they were not happy at the old joint are coming back. What a wonderful town to spend your time in, in the middle of winter.

The new hot rod hotel has had dozens call in already. I know that this is a record for early reservations. Thanks everyone - really looking forward to it!
