Noticed PitBox Hobbies has Gravity 1/12th tires on clearance for $8 a set, if anybody needs some supplies for Nats. Looks like there are not too many left though.

OK, a couple simple questions as I pack...

1. Is there an air compressor trackside?
2. What's the tire truing situation? Truer available? 12v available? Dedicated area?

I'm not complaining; I'm happy to bring everything I need. I'm just trying to eliminate some large items if possible.

It shows on their website that they have a tire truer area, just not sure if power is provided.

I stayed at the La Quinta which was a couple exits south of the track for the last Carpet Nats in Omaha.

I'm staying at Wyndham about 10 min south. It's a King suite for like $67 a night and has a full kitchen and everything.

The LaQuinta on 108th and Maple is usually the next hotel of choice.

We do have a air compressor. The last row of pit tables by the bathrooms will be set aside for tire truers.

Not quite hand outs. Just like the last 5 years or so, all tires except for 12th scale are stated tires.

Here's the flyer with the tires and prices.

The roar rule is 3. With option to buy more if you make the A.
