I would like to point out that the track has obtained a new refrigerator/freezer for the previously-named "Jimmy's Sugar Shack".

Thus, now available for purchase: ICE CREAM!

This will be a nice way to refresh yourself during a hot summer day at the track.

Rumor has it we may have a guest announcer. He was especially excited about the 1 minute seeding round in VTA.

And here I just decided to try to sell my VTA car since there hasn't been that many other VTA guys at the Gate. I'm switching over to 1/12 to race with my son—and possibly 1/12 17.5

Anybody want a Xray VTA car that's already seen plenty of laps at the Gate?

House VTA rules say Driver figure not required. Is it the same for this event?

Be sure to get your entry in early for a prime pit spot.
