We are proud to welcome BSR and Jaco as a sponsor for the 2015 Champs, and are pleased to announce that the spec tire for all touring car classes will be Jaco Blue. All touring cars must be on officially marked Jaco tires for any qualifying or main runs. You must purchase these tires at the event, at the cost of $25 per set. You will be allowed 3 sets maximum per class. Tires CANNOT be swapped between classes. Drivers who make the a main will have the option of purchasing a 4th set for the main after qualifying has concluded.

Sounds good. Rumor has it that new Jacos are much improved, we will be gluing sidewalls for sure this time.

The new Jacos are great, the rims are round and true compared to the old ones, and the hexes are nice and tight on the hubs. They also last a long time, after the initial drop off from the first couple runs they are pretty consistent until they just about tear.

I have a set I was running for probably close to 700 - 800 laps, and put new tires on and the car felt almost the same (the car did feel better with the good rubber obviously, but it wasn't dramatic).

If you have groups that would like to pit together, please PM me your requests and I will do my best to accommodate you. A few things about that:

1. We can't promise spaces to people that aren't signed up.

2. Almost everybody will be pitting in the room adjacent to the track.*

3. Please designate one person from your group to make seating requests, having multiple people ask about the same group complicates things.


* For those of you that haven't been here before, 5280 has very limited seating in the main room near the track, and most of those spaces are taken by sponsors and people helping run the event. We temporarily get the unit next door for MHIC, and have plenty of room in there. We also setup a TV or two with live video, audio and scoring from the track.

We are Proud to announce that CRC will be the official WGT spec tire for MHIC.

Thanks again to CRC for the support and as entries continue to build this is shaping up to be the best MHIC yet.

There are lots of little surprises in store for the people coming to this race this year. It is gonna be something special for sure!

Tires will be available at the race for $30 per set and these spec tires will be stickered and are required for qualifying and mains.

We are close to having all class sponsors filled and will be announced as soon as the list get finalized...Race support from our sponsors is looking very strong this year so far!

Man, those lists for stock 1/12 and stock touring are starting to get pretty stacked. 32 entires so far for stock touring, our D-main is going to be brutal! :lol

There are a lot of champions on that list already. Gotta bring the A-game for sure.
