That's why he's been picked up by a Dutch Boy for 2012.

which are the best?
are they marked?
is there a limit about quantity?

With the few additional entries that we accepted, pitting will overflow into the tire truing area.

Remember...

Each pit spot is 30" x 36", it's for 1 person and all of your cars/pit supplies.

We cannot have people taking up more then the given area or we won't have enough pit spots.

Also...

We will have a soldering station and a few set up boards in the back room for you guys to use. That should help with pit space so everyone doesn't need an area to set up tweek boards and soldering irons. Please try to set up your pits accordingly

See everyone next week!

BUT...

If you are not on the list...you are not racing. We have no room to put any "drop-ins".

Sorry.

Yes, you can use more than one type of tires. For TC, you can use Sweep QTS-32 "True Blue", Jaco Blues, or Solaris Mediums. We may have some at the race (since John from AB Charles Hobby Shop) will be there. But, to be safe, bring your own tires. As to the "best", everyone has their personal favorite of the three tires listed.

They will most likely tech tires like the last two years. Usually, we limit you to three sets for racing. You can use as many as you like in practice.

Looks like you don't even need to bring a car to have a good time.

Is the racing just something to do in between "rounds"???.......

This time next week I'll be an hour or 2 away from home and probably disappointed.

Cant wait.
