There will be no pit setup/reservation until after the gates open on Thursday morning.

Open = 13.5 and Modified

Practice on Thursday is setup and run by heat. These will not be race heats but instead random heats of 10 drivers. On Friday morning these heats will run again, unchanged, but the cars will be teched and you must use tires purchased at the event. The results from these heats (fastest three consecutive laps) will be used to set the race heats.

So it is perfectly acceptable for you to arrive on Friday morning, run the open practice, and then run the two seeding practice rounds.

However it is very important that you contact Scotty Ernst and let him know that you will not be able to attend on Thursday and that you will arrive on Friday. This way you will be placed in a practice heat and in the unlikely event that a bunch of drivers sign up at the race, your entry will not be given away.

It would also be helpful to have a friend reserve a pit space for you. We have more than enough but if you want to pit with some people in particular, you will be able to.

The tires for seeding must me the spec tire but does it have to be a set that count as a race set.

Also is it 3 sets only + 1 if we make the A main or open amount of tires.

I heard both ways and just want to know for sure

Thanks Rick
see you in a week or so

The tires for the event will have a special Reedy Race mark and can be purchased at the track beginning Wednesday. You must use tires with this mark in the seeding practice. Any tires purchased for the seeding practice will not count towards the four sets of tires that you are allowed to tech for qualifying and the mains. These four sets can be used however you want to use them - you can run one per run in qualifying, or try and save some new ones for the mains. It is up to you.

You can purchase tires for open practice at the track or use your own tires.

Scotty will be sending an email to everyone with additional information so that your experience is as trouble free as possible.

Hi Rick,
Only to make this clear for me.
We can buy let's say 10 set on wednesday and then we can choose 4 of the set as maked for the racing? I'm right or I misunderstood this.

That is the general idea. But I can't say for sure that you can buy them, take them with you, and come back and have four sets teched. I believe that the four teched sets must be purchased and teched at the same time. This is Scotty's area of expertise.

The concern is that I am not sure if the tires are bagged and sealed as sets or packed in bulk.

I hope we can take them atleast out of the bag.
I bought 2 sets for testing and 2 tyres were glued to the back.

So has tire check in switched to 3-6pm from the original times posted a few pages back by Scotty??

We will be doing event check in on Wednesday afternoon at the track from 1pm-5pm. You will be able to check in and verify all your information and also get tires.
