Have all the wet spots had a chance to dry out yet from last time?

And just cuz you're small does not mean you are exempt... it just means more on the sleeping bag!!!

Always remember to check your ride height and to sauce frequently...

Exclamation

Wanted to post an update to the practice schedule for Friday and Saturday morning.

Due to the number of entries (which is indeed in that 250 range), Friday's practice will be semi-controlled. An open practice session for this many people will just result in mass carnage and mayhem.

Also, Saturday's controlled practice-by heat will be reduced to 3 minute runs per heat. With 250 entries, it will take just over 4 hours to complete a round, and we don't want anyone being stuck at the track until 3 AM.

Therefore, the schedule for these two days is as follows:

Friday:
8 AM - Doors open. Track is closed. Any circles or trim checks can be done on our mini-track.
10AM - 10PM - Practice as follows:

10:00AM - 11:00AM - Stock 12th & Sedan
11:00AM - 11:50AM - SS Rubber Sedan & WorldGT
11:50AM - 12:50PM - Pro 12th & Sedan
12:50PM - 1:20PM - Vintage TA
1:20PM - 2:20PM - Stock 12th & Sedan
2:20PM - 3:10PM - SS Rubber Sedan & WorldGT
3:10PM - 4:10PM - Pro 12th & Sedan
4:10PM - 4:40PM - Vintage TA
4:40PM - 5:40PM - Stock 12th & Sedan
5:40PM - 6:30PM - SS Rubber Sedan & WorldGT
6:30PM - 7:30PM - Pro 12th & Sedan
7:30PM - 8:00PM - Vintage TA
8:00PM - 10:00PM - Open Late Arrival Practice Only (If you run your car on the track prior to 8PM, you may not participate in Late Practice).

Saturday:
7:00AM - Doors Open. Track is closed. Any circles or trim checks can be done on our mini-track.
8:00AM - 10:45AM - Controlled Practice by heat. 3 min runs, with 2 mins between heats
11:00AM - Drivers Meeting
11:30AM - Start of 3 rounds of Qualifying. 20 minute break ONLY between Rounds 2 & 3 for Re-sort.

Seaball, this certainly supports the supposed rumors you are hearing.

It will be open - anyone from any class can run.

If a long line develops and the track is getting too crowded, then the announcers can control the practice. They would allow 10 drivers on the stand for a 5 min run. When they're finished, the next 10 in line would go up for 5 mins, and so on.
