Yep. Same as the carpet nationals earlier in the year. You can always run more than one class for more practice.

It's the year 2010. Shouldn't vacuum cleaners be quieter by now?

That's an asphalt track, right? What's the idea behind building an indoor asphalt track vs an indoor carpet track?

Not everyone races carpet. Our track is sheltered from the elements and poured with tennis grade asphalt. If you make it to the race you will think you are on carpet. Smooth and no seems. Very little tire wear and a top notch hobby shop.

Yes trying not to build a ton of traction. However still expect high bite in comparison to usual asphalt. We mean it when we say high bite.
