Hey guys, heading to the race again this year. The family and I are heading to the Columbus area for the week prior. Is there any where in the area to practice? Looks like EN hobbies went to a dirt oval.

I heard Ian wants to implement the GTO class. (Get Taken Out). You must use late sixties land-yacht body and chrome horn passing is mandatory. Any chassis, any motor. You must honk from the driver's stand as you apply the chrome horn. All cars must be painted in primer with simulated rust (or even real rust). Final rule set pending. Or just make them up.

Okay, I've received some questions regarding the TC control tires for this year's race.

All tires used in qualifying and the mains must be purchased at the race. Tires will be $22 per set of four. They will be Sweep QTS True Blues. You may run whatever tires you wish in practice, but ALL quals and mains must be run with 2011 Indoor Champs tires from Sweep. If you have any additional questions feel free to PM or e-mail me at [email protected]
