If anyone would like for this weekend to be a 4 day event for themselves, we do have a club race on thursday which has offroad and onroad races. 17.5 Sedan, 17.5 1/12th, and VTA will be options for thursday.

Is there a WGT on Thursday? Assume that's Thursday evening.

And what about hotels?

Normally Thursday night is an abbreviated race night, minimum classes and 2 qualifiers + Main. On road is VTA. 1/12 and Sedan. I dont know if they will make an exception for that Thursday, but if there ever was an excuse to add a class, thats the Thurdsday it would happen. AWD or Chris Adams will know for sure. I am but a mere F1 guy.

Hey Bill, if you are looking for a hotel that is a few blocks away from Mike's HS, you can go to Google Maps and type in "Hotel near 1201 N Interstate 35e, Carrollton, TX" and you will find a handful of hotels within 3 blocks of Mike's HS (See A, B, and C below).

ROAR 2012 Carpet Nationals March 16th-18th

And finally the website Andrew set up

2012 ROAR Carpet nationals



$85.00 per class, I know there will be trophies and door prizes like any National Event but I do not know what they will be.



3 (4 if you count pre-tech and pit setup on Thursday).



I think the total carpet area is 64 x 98 but we race on 42 x98 for national races and a little less for weekly races (for tarp storage at one end of the track).



Here is what ROAR is showing so far.

Race Entries


Come on Battman, you need to get the whole TN crew to come to this event. I would like to meet yall
Thanks
