Just days away. I can't wait. Hearing well over 100 entries, and Chuck's food. Can't wait to see everybody...well, most of you at least.

Are you looking at 100 entries/cars or 100 drivers/no pit space?

One other note..

Tires for TC classes are the same as the Grand Slam Series:

Jaco Blue, Sweep QTS 32 or Solaris Medium

Bring your own tires
They don't have to be NIP or checked in.

I also just was informed that our TC tire shipment will not be here in time.
Please make sure you bring tires!!

I'm not sure which one you're talking about, but to stay with the current list, no that wouldn't be allowed.

ALSO....

Monti from BSR will be attending and will be bringing some TC tires with him!

Might be worth installing it just to broadcast Mike Wise dominating every class with his great white shark edition Serpents.

To add to what Joe said, this race in the past has had good turn out, but not enough to get the attention of LiveRC probably. This season with the work they have done to the track and facility, word has spread about how well the Gate is. I don't think the NORCAR group expected this to blow up as much as it did. So maybe next year...
