i think soo mainly due to timing, with the reedy race, kinda hard to take two weeks off in less than a month for most people, i know i tried ... but my bosses would not let me.

Default Nats turnout

Otto,

Roar only allows 250 entries or 25 heats for the paved/carpet nats. I don't think this race was a complete sell out but it was close.

I dunno I'm here and don't think you could fit many more people. The pits are full and they had well over 200 entries.

Like Jason said....a lot of people opted to got to the Reedy and not the ROAR Nats.

Billy's Yok is Billy's own design. It uses a small number of BD parts but everyting else is new. Billy is really underated as an R&D driver and I think its great Yok is giving him an opportunity to develop his own car.

The car Billy is running is not stock in that there are some prototype parts on the car that Billy designed. Not much different than any other MFG does when refining a car. The car is not far from a stock BD. Further there is a slightly different upper deck also.

I don't intend this to take away from Billy's efforts nor driving but the comment it is FAR FROM STOCK are on the far side of the truth.

Good job Billy. His car is pretty awesome. If he is still running the same one from the rubber tire carpet race, it has different chassis & upper deck, suspension mounts, and upper bulkheads I believe. His car was hooked up and when he is on his game, he doesn't make mistakes. World Champ.

Jeff Brown TQ'ing the 1st round of stock in both classes. Way to go and keep it up.

Like I said, I didn't get to see it. Just what I was told. Sorry if I made it sound negative. That's not what I meant. What Billy is running is probably no different than any other factory guy. I have yet to see a factory racer run a big race with a box stock car.
