I see Dave Johnsons name is where it should be. I was worried for a bit that Mr. Smooth wasnt going to show.

The latest issue of RC Driver magazine features an article on VTA! When I met the author, Tony Phalen, during the ROAR Carpet Nationals back in March he said that he was working on a VTA article for RC Driver magazine. Now here it is!

Default Information and Updates

With the event coming really quick, and Im getting alot of emails and pm's...I figured I would re-cap and update some info

Event:
2012 USVTA+ Southern Nationals in Music City, USA, will be the 2nd year for this event. Last year the event pulled in over 90 entries,over 20 sponsors, and racers from over 10 different states. We are on track to surpass those numbers already. This event is listed by RCtech as one of the top tier on-road events. Is is also one of the largest USVTA events in the country, and maybe even in the world.

Track:
The track is Thunder RC Raceway, owned by Robert Dirla(Nashrcracer). The track has had some major updates since last years event. We have added very smooth sub-floor. The carpet itself is less than a year old. The track layout will be Vegas style, that will be put down that Wed and Thurs with closed doors, so no homefield advantage. We also just added fans on the drivers stand.

Format:
Friday Sept 21st
track opens at 10am for setup,sign-up and practice
closes at 11pm

Saturday Sept 22nd
track opens 7am for practice
11am concourse, pictures, and drivers meeting
12 noon starts races
all prizes will be given out all day

Sunday Sept 23rd
track opens 7am for practice
8am starts LCQ followed by mains
Winners circle pics and trophy give-a-way

Hotel info:
Sleep Inn
Rooms will be $49.99 per night, thats a double Queen or 1 King, your choice. And if need extra bed at no cost( I think its a roll-out, not sure)...When you call the hotel, tell them you are coming for the Southern Nationals...If not you will be charged regular rate $89.99...

Call in and reserve you room .....they will go fast...this hotel did a face-lft last year and Im happy that they are one of our sponsors again

HOST HOTEL,
http://www.sleepinn.com/hotel-nashville-tennessee-TN464

3200 Dickerson Pk., Nashville, TN, US, 37207

Fax: (615) 227-8894

Concourse:
$50 CASH and a new VTA/GT style body to the VTA/USGT concourse winner...and yes you do have to run it in the main...

Event Shirts:
Event shirts are $20 for small-XL, add $5 for plus sizes to 5XL...you have choice of red,blue and grey shirts...The shirts will have all the sponsors logos on the back of them.

We are taking pre-orders now till Aug 31st, you can still get shirts at the event, but like last year, we ran out really quick...

You can send your size and color with check or money order to:
KRC
PO Box 70779

or post it here and I can add you, you can pay for your shirt at the event as well....but it will be for sale like the rest of them...

What are the rules governing VTA tires ? New tires, old tires, run what you bring, full tread/no tread ? And will they be spec'd ?

Thanks

Glad we could help a fellow racer with his event. Sounds like a few from the Dayton area maybe coming down. I talked to Von this week and he is getting ready. He is one of the top 3-4 drivers at our track.

I like the blue or grey one myself or red......

USGT,
GT style bodies ONLY, No LMR or any similar types( no big 12th scale bodies ), NO SLICKS. IFMAR starts for qual, and 8 min A-main. Tires must mantain tread for every race.

and you must have a cool body and tons of fun...
