I have kept up on this thread, that's funny for the fact that I was watching a behind the music marathon on my computer last night.

Do you know how compelling a story about Crosby, Stills, Nash AND Young is?

Another interesting pointer in the minutes...no prototype parts allowed in Super Stock...a rule that used to only be observed in Stock class.

LOL that rule is a joke too. Tech doesn't know what is prototype and what isn't.

Don't matter to me I'm not coming to the nats. I'll be at the Horsham Nats that weekend.

And even if I was coming the tech person probably has never even seen a Photon so it wouldn't really matter.

hello,

Can anyone tell me the dimensions of the racing surface?

Also has the bump at the end of the straightaway been fixed?

Thanks

The track is 98' x 50'

The bumps are still there, nothing we can do about it short of repaving asphalt under the carpet. What we have done is worked with different track layouts to minimize high speed cornering in the bumpy areas.

Here is a video of our current layout, and we have a few more to try before the Nats...

+ YouTube Video

the bumps do not seem to be the primary problem.

looks like a fun layout, though. the nats will be fun.

What is included in the entry fee? Handout tires? How many sets can be purchased/used for the event?

Looking at the registration page, there is no 13.5 foam touring listed, so as a sportsman entry we'd be limited to 17.5 TC / 1/12th and SS WGT?
