I'm looking to get some practice before the 2011 USVTA SOUTHERN NATIONALS so maybe I'll make the trek down on Sept 10. What is the normal turnout?


Does anyone here race at Hotshots? That looks to be 3 hours from me, so that may be another place I'd visit from time to time.
Hot Shot has VTA racing every Wednesday and Saturday. Open for practice daily (closed now on Sunday). I think we had 8 VTA last Saturday and 15 VTA last Wednesday.

There are a couple of threads dedicated to Hot Shot in the Georgia Racing area.

It also looks like there's a race indoor off-road on Sept 10th at night. Maybe I can make it a full day trip to race VTA at battlegrounds early, and indoor at Hotshot later...hmmmm....

Guess I'll start checking in with the wife...

Default VTA Racing

Hey folks, we just had the finale of our Asphalt Assault 2011 Series here in the Mid-West (5 races at 4 tracks). The finale was Sunday, Aug 21st, at Leisure Hours Raceway, in Joliet, IL. We had 49 different VTA Drivers participate in the series, and at the finale.... we had 34 VTA cars participate!
3 groups (12, 11, 11) and 2 Mains (A + B, with 17 Cars In Each!)... It was Awsome!!!!

Here are the top 10 VTA Drivers from the 5 race series.... Nice Trophies!!!
Note: That's Howard Lo from Speed Passion 2nd from the right in the back row.
.........Special thanks to Speed Passion, Associated, Trinity, and all the Sponsors and host Tracks.

There was almost 50 drivers that raced USVTA and almost another 50 drivers that raced USGT over the entire series. Scale spec racing is doing great here in our area.....lets see if we can keep it going this winter! The Midwest All-Star Carpet series starts in a month!

For all you west coast VTA guys:

Speedworld in Roseville, California (suburb of Sacramento) is hosting the XRAY Challenge and we want to add VTA as a class. We need 15 guys to sign up in order to make this happen. We run a by-the-books VTA class with a 3.7 FDR limit and have an awesome outdoor asphalt track to race on.

Schedule:
Sept 8: warm up race in the afternoon/evening (non-official event)
Sept 9: XRAY Challenge practice
Sept 10: XRAY Challenge practice in the AM, qualifying in the PM
Sept 11: XRAY Challenge final qualifying and mains

Race flyer: http://www.speedworldraceway.com/Fil...y_swr_2011.pdf

Speedworld website: http://www.speedworldraceway.com

If you would like to run VTA at this event, please do at least one of the following: PM me, post in our VTA forum (on our website) that you want to race, or enter via the race flyer.

And if you want to stay informed about Speedworlds' VTA events, join our mailing list (on our website as well).
