Do you have a new class entry count? Just wondering if USVTA got to over 60 and what USGT is up to. I should be making my way over tonight. I cant wait for the weekend to start!

Nice! Looking forward to my first time over there.

Any idea how late you are going to be open until tomorrow? I see controlled practice goes until 9pm, but wasn't sure if there was open practice a little longer after. I know some people are coming in late Friday night and were wondering.

At home I use an old metal mailbox. It makes a nice little containment area, unfortunately its a bit big for my pitbag. I wonder how an ammo can would hold up to a lipo going off in there.
There was \ is a video on youtube of a battery being set off inside of a ammo box and it worked great, after seeing the video I went and got a ammo box and I use it while charging at the house, and storage of the batteries.

Very nice facility and shop. Thanks to the crew for hosting the event and their hospitality. Good luck with the new carpet. I would also recomend the upgrade on timming system so 3 wire mylaps will work. Kind of sucks driving over 6.5 hours and all practice on friday to find out Mylaps arent good and have to borrow someone else transponder to inhibit their racing as well as mine. Please as track operaters and promoters, that read this post; upgrade your timming systems or advertise in your race flyers; what kind of sytems you are running with. Helpful info for theout of town traveler whom might not have been to your facility before. Ive spent my money with my local shop to upgrade my equipment would be nice to know if I need to bring some old stuff too. I will call ahead next time before I travel.

Had a great time this weekend. Looking forward to racing there again that is for sure. Here is the pictures for the results for USVTA and USGT.

There was some questioning of how the scoring worked for the triple A's and the "default" tie breaker setting used doesn't seem to be the way it should have been. (The same thing happened in Nashville.) The way it the scoring works is that your top 2 runs count for points and your worst finishing run is dropped. Then it SHOULD take these 2 times/laps and add them together and who has the most laps it the least time should be the winner of the tie. It says that on the paper the 3rd or dropped run is the tiebreaker, but even that doesn't add up correctly if you look at USGT and 3rd/4th place between Rob and I. So I just missed out on my first ever large even podium finish. I am still VERY happy that I was able to make the A in both USGT and USVTA and I had a GREAT time. Just hoping this is avoided in the future at these races and that is why I am posting about this.

Looking forward to seeing you all @ the Harbor race in April. (FYI - For the person above - Harbor uses the old system if you plan on going.)
