But in the end there was like 2 school age racers there. Also I think that most school age racers that are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend such a race are likely to be able to miss a few days of school to do so.

Some exciting things are taking place at the "C" this winter!!! We are announcing an 8 week point series starting November 22nd (the week after the region 2 race). This series will be for awards only (no gift cards or cash this time). We will have a weekly points race on 11/22, 11/29, 12/06, 12/13, 12/20, 1/03/2009, 1/10/2009, and 1/17/2009. We're taking a week off for the holidays and those of you who want to visit family or entertain your loved ones. There will be two throw outs in the series so make as many as you can.

The Sedan Challenge date for this year is still up in the air but what I've talked to Richard about is making it early in the spring sometime in late March. I will keep you all posted about the final date.

The HOT news is......as you all know we are hosting the ROAR Nationals and to kick off the party we want announce the "National Warm Up Series Race" (NWUSR). This will be an opportunity for local and out of town racers to familiarize themselves with our very unique facility. The NWUSR will be a total of five races with one throw out over a five month period starting the first weekend in May. The series will continue to run every first Saturday until the ROAR Nationals in October. Again plaques only no monetary prizes but guaranteed fun and good competition.

Hope to see you all soon,
Casey

Hey Kevin, if you like I can have a setup sheet waiting for you at the track the day of the regionals or if you come up before then I can have it for whenever you come to the track.

Sounds like a plan, please PM what type of body and tires I might need. WOW it has been like 4 years since I ran TC. This should be fun.

K-Bo.... I will be in touch, check out your PM and drop me a line still the same cell # if you need it ask Ray, I know he has it.

The Coliseum will be going to an odorless compound rule as of November 15th. Since we run indoors we have to respect our customers and others in the store. The rule will be anything that doesn't have an odor such as Paragon (traction action), Jack the Gripper, Niftech and Tire Tweak. I experimented with three of these last weekend and the ones that has the most promise are Paragon and Jack.

Alright,
After much deliberation and talking to racers and tire companies we have decided to go with Jaco Blues as the control tire for the Nationals. The tires will be at a reduced price as soon as we reorder from Jaco and sell out of our current stock, right now they are $29.99 but when we get the new shipment in we will sell the sets for $22-$23.
Casey
