I would love to go to a roar nats asphalt or carpet, however oct. is a busy time for me at work and I cant take the time off. the track is prob about a 3 hr drive away for me. I think this all has to do on the race date. You cant have a rubber tire race in oct, let alone in the northeast. If this race was in june july or aug, I am sure the turnout would be much higher. I don’talways agree but most racers get in carpet mode once September comes around. I for one would like to see roar succeed and have big turnouts at there regional and national level events. Here is an idea for next year. Have all the regionals on the same weekend, like a Super Regionals Weekend for example. 6-5-09 would be Regional Weekend and 7-18-09 would be the weekend of the Nats, give some time for rain date makeups and people to make travel arrangements. To run in the Nats you must qualify by making the A in your region, and you can have some wild cards for people coming out of a tough region and a rule to allow the locals to race in it. Pretty sure there are 12 regions, now you have 120 possible racers for each class??? Right now there is really no reason to run in a ROAR region event, but if you had to qualify for the nats it would mean a little something. Think about it can any of us go out and play in the US Open Tennis event, no you have to qualify by playing other smaller tournaments. Can you go play in the BWM golf championships being held this weekend with Tiger just by paying the entry fee??? Also would have to have super advanced planning like announcing in January the regional tracks and dates and the national track. Hope everything works out for the best for the host track and roar.

I remember when the Regional race was super important for us.

back in 90's when we had a IFMAR 1/10 offroad at Michigan, you had to win a any class to qualify for a entry, I think we had over 400 entries in region 1, ar eyou looking for something like that?

If you want to see the Nats at your local track you need to get them to bid.

Thats just crazy talk.

well I for one, have been planning on this race since last year in Jonesboro, I was looking very forward to having another go at with Mr. Tag. Bad luck in the mains for him kept me from finding out if i had anything for him. However with no Masters class, (and yea i know theres only 6 of us that would show) and just doing the IIC (i didn't realize both races were so close), not sure I will make it.

Hey Rick,

The track will be open at 8am during the race, and we close at 8pm. Of course if qualifying or the mains go beyond that we will keep the trackside open. Rumor has you guys are bringing the big guns? Look forward to seeing you at the "C"!

Casey

Just wanted remind everyone that today is the last day to pre reg for this race. There is no late fee, so if your planning on coming try to get those entries in today. We will be taking track side entries on Thursday. Once RMT gets there Thursday you'll need to register before you can get on the stand for practice. We'll be there ready to go for reg at 8:00 am. Morning practice will most likely be slot time controlled and we'll have a min of one practice round to finish Thursday.

I am slow understanding the Thursday practice setup, and won't get there until Thursday afternoon so help me follow the practice schedule so I can try to get whatever practice I can.

To any of the Roar people. My two battery packs I'm using in my car. I sanded the humps off the bottom. I'm I going to be able to use these packs?
