Brand and cost still not updated, but doesn't look like any handout tires, 3 set max for TC, unless you make the A, then you can get another set.

A pit space with power, and racing for 3 days with friends from all over the country. Seriously though....it's up to the host, and Mimi is trying to put something together to be included.

There are no handout tires, but rather a Spec tire. For Sedan classes, there is a 3 set limit per class. Racers that make their respective A-main(s) are allowed to purchase a 4th set. There is no limit for World GT.

Touring Car 13.5 Expert Super Stock (foam tire) should be on there shortly. If you sign up for Touring Car 17.5 Sportman Stock, you cannot sign up for this class.

Thanks Billy. I've got no issues with the race crowd. I really hope to get up there again. Just trying to figure out what it's going to cost.

Race Fee $85
Roar Membership $30
3 sets of tires @$75
Talkin' trash with Arvin Priceless.

It was my understanding from the wording in the meeting minutes that a sportsman competitor could compete in a expert class if no sportsman class was offered. ie SS foam and WGT.

I say kill mod TC since its no faster than SS, and have sportsman foam

I double checked with ROAR...the only exception is if you sign up for 1/12 17.5 Sportsman Stock, you can also sign up for World GT 13.5 Exper Super Stock.

OH MAN!!! Here we go!! Tony you better bring the whole shop with ya!!! ya gonna need all the support!! HAHA

BTW, we have implemented a "RULE" Believe me, its Definately NOT a "Gentleman's Agreement" It's the You CHOOSE RULE 3/10ths or 5 seconds rule!! When i come up on ya... you only have a split second decision..... if ya move, its only 3/10ths... if ya dont.....it's 5seconds!!! This rule has been implented by Mr. "NO LIFT" aka K.L.

But yeah man... come on up!! you guys havent traveled in a while... Its gonna be cool to have a big crowd.

Really looking forward to going back to mimi's for the nationals. I hope people realize if we want to have good sanctioned racing we need to support these races.
