Default 2013 Asphalt Nationals

I just noticed this news posted on ROAR's site today. Looks like Asphalt Nats will be in FL this May.


http://www.roarracing.com/downloads/..._Nationals.pdf

I was hoping it would be held later in summer.

Tim will have his hands full for a while. I don't recognize the track and the address ROAR listed pulls up a residence. Maybe this is it? http://www.villageraceway.com/p/location.html

I hope it's not in May which is the same month as the RROC!

I'm with you Fred. The site says May 2nd-5th; RROC is at the end on Memorial Day weekend, right?

Yep, which undoubtedly there will be some who won't be able to take time off for both races due to them being in the same month which will affect both races. Poor planning and a lack of respect IMHO by the host track. This race could have easier been held 2 month's later...Boooo!

From what I remember about a trip I took to FL a couple years ago, summer is their wet season. I have to think they're trying to avoid rain and run in cooler temps? When I was in Tampa that summer it rained nearly every afternoon. Good thing Plant City was indoors.

If I make it I hope I get to see you there Hubbs. If Still Bill makes it too, dinners on me this time.

I can appreciate that Andrew but the fact that it's in the same month obviously bothers me. Which airport did you fly into?

It's always been later on in the summer, but as Andrew pointed out mid to late may is the start of rainy season, much like here in Texas. I was a bit surprised, but I am going regardless. This is a World's Qualifying year.

When I went to Tampa I flew to TPA- Tampa International Airport.

I feel ya. To be honest I was only hoping for it to be June/July so I wouldn't have to take off. Our state mandated testing is right around then and there ain't no way for me to get around that. I might luck out though if the dates fall perfectly. Maybe I'll get to run more than half my qual-points qualifiers and I can get to the track without having to rely on the kindheartedness of Hayne's mom to drive me an hour in a crazy apocalyptic storm.

Lack of respect?? Look in the mirror! You don't even know why?

I personally can't wait! Going to be an awesome event.

No, I don't know why you wrote it, because there is no way you/or I know the circumstances behind the date. I am pretty sure there is a good reason. It was just posted today. I would imagine you said what you because of the Reedy Race at the end of the same month.

This looks like a "pitch your own tent and hope it doesn't rain" public park racetrack.

Go to the first posting by Andrew, click on the second link, on the satelite photo, zoom in and move to the upper right. I think thats it, looks like a nice track.
