In "Vta class"? Tracks near me are not that big wow. Your place is awesome! Im going to get spoiled lol
Be prepared to gear from 3.8 to 3.4 as many options as you can come up with. There might even be guys that are going lower than that.

Battman will you be setting up a Pace Car lap for the USGT A main like you did last year? I wonder if you would carry a camera on your car for that. It weighs about an ounce but would have to be servo taped to the rear deck or the roof.

you should come...Ive got 12th scale racers and TC racers coming as a warm-up for Vegas...it will have the layout(very similar)...and Ive cut cost everywhere possible to make this trip affordable...give it some thought...$35 entry($25 if running VTA first 50), $15 second class....and nice hotel in the Sleep Inn for $49 for double Queen...if you got a buddy, share and save even more....and running into over 20 sponsors...plenty of prizes, free food, and trophies...HAVE YOU SEEN THE TROPHIES!!!!....

I hope you can come and at least give it more thought..we would love to have you....Battman

Hey Scott,

I would say that we have 20-25 really good locals that run VTA and some of the TC guys will probably throw a VTA together for the race too. Im pretty sure every weekly local we have will be at this event and not like some big races you go to where locals dont show up.

Come on up. You'll love the place! Its awesome with all the work we put into the track last winter and Dirla has continued with some summer improvements as well along with Myron and his gang keeping the place clean and putting in a lot of work there.
