I just called the Holiday Inn and they are full up. No more rooms for the Nationals block or otherwise.

Looks like it will be a full house

As posted on the ROAR Website earlier today:

06/06/08 - MOTOR ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE NATIONALS

ROAR has experimented with several different methods for handling the Stock and Super Stock motors at a national event. Processes and directives are now required for the brushless motors to clarify fairness in those classes. The ROAR Executive Committee has recognized this and discussed it with great enthusiasm. Here are the results of that discussion. These directives will be utilized at the upcoming national championship events where electric motors will be run.


Each contestant is allowed to use 3 individual motors for each the Stock and Super Stock classes. The maximum of 3 can consist of any combination of brushed or brushless motor types from any approved motor manufacturer.

All motors for the Stock and Super Stock classes must be submitted to ROAR RMT technical inspection prior to the start of racing. The technical inspector shall inspect each motor submitted for compliance to ROAR rules for the class entered. Each brushless motor will then be sealed and serialized to that specific driver upon passing inspection.

The manufacture installed aluminum beauty ring may be removed from brushless motors. No other modifications to the approved brushless motor can in stock and super stock are allowed.

After the brushless motor has been sealed, no rotor changes are allowed for the remainder of the event.

Brushed motors will be marked with serial numbers on the can and the armature.

No other armature can be used in that specific motor can after the armature has been marked by the inspectors

Brushless motors may be disassembled with supervision of the inspectors for purpose of normal motor maintenance such as bearing lubrication, or change if they are damaged or excessively worn. Rotors may not be changed as part of normal motor maintenance.

Brushed motors may be disassembled for normal maintenance without supervision of the inspectors.

If the seal on the brushless motor has been compromised without supervision of the inspector, that motor will be impounded till the end of the event, then returned to the owner. That driver will then finish the competition with the two remaining motors he has submitted for inspection and registration.

ROAR has taken these steps in effort to make the process the same whether you race with a brushed or a brushless motor. There would be an advantage for the brushless motor if rotor changes where allowed. Since we cannot permanently mark the rotor at these events, it was considered best to seal the brushless motor to prevent rotor changes. Also, ROAR is following the precedence set in the days of handout motors by limiting the drivers to 3 motors per class.
