No entries were lost when the server crashed. The payment history is there so Scotty will be matching them up to what is in the database. If there are any issues I am sure he will handle them accordingly.

When the site comes back up, currently waiting for the redirection, then you will be able to register for the race.

I wouldn't wait until the day of the race to register. You never know what could happen and I would hate for you to make the trip only to find out that you can't race.

Good point, I couldn't wait for peace of mind alone. I'd have a nervious breakdown because of lack of sleep. Registering and actually paying are totally different. It would be too many sleepless nights between now and October 1st.

I snail mailed my entry. My check was deposited but seeing my name on the entry list will make me feel much better.

Is this the typical cost for a big event? $160 for even the cheapest first class?

That's not the cheapest first class...actually it is one of the most expensive because of the hand out equipment used in the class. If you run classes that are not hand out like any of the 1/12th scale classes then the entry fee is lower.

Directly from the website.

"If you plan to run Amateur 17.5 Sedan, your first class entry fee is $195; if not, your first class will be $175 if it is a tire handout class, or $160 for non-handout classes. Second and third entries will cost $100 for tire handout classes, or $80 for non-handout classes."

Its typical for this race. Most other races are cheaper BUT. At the IIC you get:

Worlds best organizer, announcer and International Super Star Scotty Ernst and his crew running the event.

You get your traction additive

1 set of handout tires

Free taco bar with free BEER one night

Free drivers banquet buffet (and the food is good!)

Usually there is a free breakfest buffet coupon in there.

A body of your choice

And then there are also all kinds of smaller items in the goodie bag from heat shrink, wire, solder, etc from the sponsors. So if you add it all up the entry is not all that bad for what you get. It evens it out to what other races cost dollar for dollar.

That seems pretty cool! I was just wondering what to expect if I did ever make it to a "world" level race. Do these races give cash payouts to the upper winners or is it usually trophy/prize based?

Right...and if all you signed up for was 1/12th scale classes your least expensive first class would be $160.
