Default practice

Ian,

based on entry numbers right now, is it still anticipated that the schedule is only gonna allow 2 practice runs before qualifying starts ? Or will practice be in time blocks per class ?

Jimmy,

Right now we may be able to run three for Oval and Roadcourse without stretching to deep into the night. That being said we received a flood of entries today, so I can't gaurantee it. I'm going to work up a tentative schedule based on the entry count we've received by Saturday, and post it on this thread, the Hobbytalk threads, and on the site Sunday afternoon. Stay tuned!

Why don't we just skip practice altogether and just add 2 qualifiers

Who needs practice? Or qualifiers? Just run mains.

Based on his performance at the Halloween Classic, Mr. Cyrul doesn't need practice. Just throw the car on the track and lay it down!

Just received a couple of sets of Jaco WGT tires from Stormer, no stripe on tires, but a lilac sticker on the inside. Is this something new and are they legal?
thanks

Chuck, The tires must have the purple stripe for tech purposes.

That has always been my dream, but SOOOOOOO many people disagree with me on that one.

So far, probably 20 or so Roadcourse heats.
