Hey Dumper SW is the best I have flown on. Always on time, you can check two bags up to 50lbs each and carry one a bag plus a laptop (or man purse if that is your thing!!). No charge for any of em. Plus they are always nice....No body is gonna tell you to screw off, grab two beers and jump down the emergency ramp!!

Cool I am going up this weekend for some practice.....I know I need it!

Quick question, on the 2011 rules page for amateur tc it says you cannot run mod, but on the SS tc class it also lists no amateur drivers. Can amateur drivers only run amateur and stock?

Was it mentioned what the spec tire was yet?

Hello MikeXRay - yes Touring Amateur Stock drivers can also race the Touring Stock class (but not Expert or Modified). We will be using Jaco tires once again for the Touring car spec tire. Thanks!

We are working on adding the online entry from before Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for the official announcement.

Default Pit space

Hoping to attend my first snowbirds this year. Are the pits at the track or do we pit in the rooms? Is there a choice? If so, what do most do?

thanks in advance.

leave any motor spray, cleaning agent, and traction compound behind. They set off the chemical detectors when the swab your bag/case/trunk or whatever your gear is in. I take my batteries out of my transmitter. Beyond that, good luck - your carrying or checking in all sorts of interesting looking stuff when its scanned.

I have never had an issue with my stuff. I do avoid anything that says flammable or hazardous. I also carry my radio and cars on with me (minus any batteries in the car).

If I carry shock oil I put them in a spill proof container. Bass pro shops carries some that are water tight and I write non hazardous and non flammable on the outside. This keeps them from looking at them much. I also make sure all my batteries are discharged too. Less likely to have any issues with them that way.
