Brian ...... I think you are correct that NORCAR at the Gate did so in 2003 but that is the only other on-road electric saleout carpet or paved that I can remember.

Default adding some reality re: sell-out

Although I think it is a great thing that the race has filled up (maybe people won't wait until the last minute to sign up in the future), we should remember that with the addition of 19 turn, people who used to be able to run only 2 classes are now allowed to run 3.

You can run 4 actually if you run two 12th scale classes and 2 sedan classes.

When they added 19t as a Nats class didn't they up it from max of 2 to max of 3 entries? I know there was a big stink with oval about this as guys wanted to run as many classes as they could.

Maybe it is time to change the max entry to 300 or 350. Each off road Nat is 300 and oval is 350. Especially with the addition of 19t. It would be interesting to see how much extra time the possibility of an additional 12th scale class adds.

I believe the max is 3 as well.

I'm just curious, but most carpet tracks that I have been to cannot handle having that many people and I'm guessing that would limit the amount of tracks that can actually hold the event, true or not true?

I believe that if a certain track that DOES have the capabilities to hold that many participants should easily be able to get a deviation to the rule to allow more people... IMO the cutoff should stay as is and if possible should it come up then ROAR can evaluate and grant a deviation.... If changed it will deter some tracks from even placing a bid to hold the event.

Also you have to consider time schedules...A race with 300 entries is going to be about 9 - 9 1/2 hours a day, minimum...

(Yeah, yeah, I've heard all about the Snowbirds and Cleveland... This is not either of them.)

Just my thoughts.

The rule on entries is there to limit the length of the race program. It stinks to have to be at the track 15 hours a day for 5 days straight.

Anyone that has been to a 400+ entry race knows that the race is cool but the days are long and exhausting.

As it is right now with 29 heat races it would 4 and a half hours per round with a 3 minute break between heats. Thats 9 hours barring any delays.

25 Heats should be around 3 hours +/- with no delays. 2 rounds makes it 6 hours +/-. I think there could be room for one or two more heats.....

Your math looks better than mine but I think it will be two minutes between each round.
