This could be AWESOME!

Throw in Dumas, T.J., McMoney, and the rest of the guys around that age. Can someone (Bruce?) get Pritch to make a weekend comeback? Also, don't forget about the guys that aren't running it that could be - Dosie, Walt, Pulfer, Ian, Chicky and I'm sure there's others I'm forgetting.

I hope to make it up there this weekend, but still not sure. I have a ton of work to get done over the weekend and while I planned on lying to myself and saying I'd do it there, I know better. We'll see...

Sad situation, but that's how it goes.
the funny thing is that it should not even matter. we all do this because we love to race. it doesn't matter if there are 10 cars or 100, a class like f1 is raced because people enjoy driving that car, who cares who else is running it. people that complain about wanting to see an entry list are just wanting to see if they have a chance before they sign up. grow a pair and go racing.

BINGO......we have a winner..

I've ran the class the last two years. Last year it was my car and Miller's during all the quals....he let guest drivers run it for two of them....and Joe Ruggles....what happened to all of them last year? I went and bought a 104 for this year to run...going to leave it at home since there were no pre-entries to have the class.

Hey all: This race has allot of history to it ,but I think these days they need to move it a week or two before or after Thanksgiving to get the entry list up. I also think with so many other big races most people can only afford to attend a few of them. Just my thoughts thanks and happy turkey day to all.

I would have liked to race the F1 class but wanted a decent amount of entries, I can race against 20 people locally; I'm not interested in doing the same only to pay 5-6 times more for entry fee and still have to get a set of hand out tires.

I agree that if you like to run the class just race it but people just want to 'guarantee' that it will be fun and worth it.

For me personally I’m glad it is over the holiday weekend; eats up less vacation time that way.

Default fast fossils

If memory serves me correctly, the fastest laps that anybody did with a 17.5 1/12th scale car at last year's Indoor Champs were laid down by the guys at the sharp end of the masters division. And now, if even just half of the well known names who have been called out recently as masters eligible showed up and chose to run..........the whole masters A main could potentially be faster than the TQ of the 'young gun' 17.5 division. Wouldn't that be awesome?....even if yours truly no longer had a realistic shot at working his way into the masters main. For sure it would be something to see. And it would undeniably affirm the chosen name of the class......"Masters".

Actually due to the fact it's on thanksgiving I am burning a huge 0 days vacation time. Which means I can attend the race. If it was the week before or after I personally would be out. The race of the "core classes" and making the racing Black Friday-Sunday I think is awesome. You can actually eat a meal with your family and still make the race.

For every person who benefits from the holiday schedule, there is another who does not. Personally, I am one of the former... And would love to attend next year, especially if the race follows the new 3-day format.

But I know of plenty of people who simply cannot take that time off to race. And this is not one of those things that you could talk your way into/out of... there are plenty of families for whom this is one of the few times each year that they see each other, etc.

Coupled with the large number of other races that provide an equally compelling product for the consumers, the schedule may have more to do with attendance than some would be inclined to think.
