We think the classes that are being run will make this one of the most exciting and one of the most prestigious Roar nats.
This Roar nats are being put together by racers, and national level racers I think(lol).So we have a pretty good idea what racers want.It'll be a lot of fun, and thats what the nats should be
Al,

That,s a shame and you are missing out. We had 17 at last years Carpet nats (including some top level drivers including Dirla and Tony Phalen). If you had allowed VTA to run you might have had 25 to thirty VTA entries this year because VTA is getting bigger with every major race that runs it. But it is your race and your decision so while I won't be going to the Carpet Nats this year, I may see you if you run USVTA and I am in that neck of the woods on business some time this year. Good luck with the 2013 Carpet nats and I hope you do well.

Peace Out,

Perfect! Cannot wait to see how well I fair against the best around the nation in stock touring car. As long as I don't finish last (or at least have a good time doing so) this will be an awesome race!!

12th mod has been pretty awesome at our track and I cannot wait to see some mod TC.

Just over 2 months to go!!!

agreed. but the point Al made about the rules is a valid point - oh well, ROAR needs to figure out something so that this class can run without whining and crying...

but that makes my decision easy - I'm out. no time or money to prepare for TC, but have a VTA that would have been ready to run.

odd, though - VTA has been run at every nationals since Jackson hosted the Paved Nationals 2 years ago..

Good luck to everyone, Horsham is a top-notch facility I'll probably be up to watch the happenings on the Friday or weekend

My guess is that the Horsham / Jackson RC track just does not get as many VTA racers as other tracks in the US.

True facts.....and I'm one of them, but sadly this was the right decision for this neck of the woods.

Peace Out,
Historically, VTA simply hasn't pulled those entry numbers. The 17 at Carpet Nats last year was the biggest VTA turnout at any of the big non-VTA-specific races in the past few years... Less than 10 entries at 2011, 2012 Asphalt Nats, 12-13 at 2012 Snowbirds, etc. The VTA Nationals gets great numbers, but for whatever reason(ruleset or otherwise), the VTA racers don't seem to travel to the other races in big numbers.

They do not not like spending 4 days, 500 to 1,000 (depending on the amount of travel). This class core design is about fun for race day... not about going to Manufactures Club Race (ROAR Nationals). So now you have it.... Let's not fill up this about what we don't like (open a new thread for that)...

Let's move on and let this be about a cool place hosting the 2013 ROAR Carpet Nationals.....
