We had two sign up for wgt. Both local drivers. Not enough. Its not a huge class in Dallas so it was a head scratcher at least for me when they made it part of the Nats. Im guessing that Roar is in touch with the onroad carpet community and wgt is huge everywhere but here.

Entries are looking good so far. 17.5 12th is the largest class, but I suspect Sedan will catch up soon enough.

Mod 12th is seeing a pretty good number of entries, as well.

Sorry Bill. There were only 2 people (me and AWD) who showed up with a WGT car. Not enough to have a race.

I like the way you think Rick. I am suggesting this to ROAR. Thanks for all the input fellas.

I didn't nail down the specifics but it was something similar to that in Jackson last year.

Default WGT tires

Are the Jaco WGT tires going to be available at the track? Or, are we expected to get them ourselves.

Is there known pricing for the sets?

Still remembering that Jaco dropped the ball at the last minute on supplying spec WGT tires at last Carpet Nats in 2011.

Just want to have my act together.

Many thanks.

Bill
