Like a 21.5 with a Tekin, except the 21.5 would probably be faster on the straights.

What I want to know, is, what's the turbo delay gonna be on this layout?

I was just thinking that. Almost insane, considering 17.5 looks as fast as that.

Too funny! they look like they are crawling compared to today's 17.5s. The announcing even seems slow as a result.

Hey Roberto shot your email back...
Weather is looking fantastic down here... we are getting close!
If anyone needs anything shoot me an email: [email protected]

We might be streaming live Saturday night and for sure Sunday is the plan so you can watch us (work hehe).

Web: http://snowbirdnationals.com/thunderslive2010

Lots of last minute entries and teams sending them in. I might not be able to get them online as we are in hurry-up mode. Hotel meeting today and numbers are climbing. Looking great! Snowbird hotel rate is held until event if you still need to make a reservation and we will have class openings at the event for classes.

Mike

If you don't like smart comments feel free to move along.

Oval will have 4 corners which will mainly consist of 4 visible left hand turns. Some drivers have stated that they have seen something stick out before the corner which causes them to turn to the right. Honestly, I think they are just closet on-road drivers waiting to come out.

The on-road program will have left and right turns with maybe a straight section to stretch your legs a little bit.

Sorry, as a former oval racer I couldn't resist giving the oval guys a hard time.
