Paul here, track owner at N-Control.

Covered pits: By Nats I expect covered space with tables and chairs for at least 60, plus a bunch more covered space without the built-in tables. After signups open I will take table reservations with preference to people flying in.

Camping: Overnight camping _without_ hookups available. Tent or RV is fine, although a burn ban is reasonably likely to be in effect. There will be restrictions on things like fire and noise no matter what. Should be able to accommodate everyone who wants to camp. (At least most) Camping will be about 100 yards from the track.

Pit trailers: Space for a limited number of pit trailers, TBD. I'll need to do reservations on these as well, with more information to follow.

Thanks!

Doves, no. I doubt that I'll even have my range in place by then... however, all four of my neighbors have good ranges, and you're welcome to ask.

Default Race Schedule

When will the race schedule be available, open track practice day, controlled
practice and etc? trying to figure what day to leave from California to arrive
in Texas.

I'd assume controlled practice and seeding practice will be Thursday afternoon Friday morning

First time I found the track it reminded me of the saying from a baseball movie: build it and they will come! Not too far from Circuit of the Americas. but avoid that turn off of TX 130 if its a race day there too.

Joe since USGT isn't a ROAR class and locally NControl doesn't follow USVTA weight rules for this class at your club races, what weight are you going to use for USGT at the nationals: 1380 or 1350?

Its what we ran at mats last year for usgt. I was assuming that since it will be the roar nats and they followed the usgt guidelines last year it would be the same this year.

Sorry thisguy I don't like making assumptions. Soap kind of why I asked the question in the first place, since USGT is not a ROAR class.

Joe Maxey and/or a ROAR official please help. 1380 or 1350 grams for USGT at the ROAR on Road Nats in Austin TX?
