Hey guys,

Sorry, I was unable to get a better rate with any of the hotels. This is one area I will need to work hard to improve on next year. If you need help picking one, send me a PM and I can share what I know about them. Generally, the White Marsh area is nice.

Thanks Phil!

Also a big shoutout to John Baeirlein, Greg Halstead, Scott Nehrkorn, Casey Young and everyone that helped us get a couple TVs setup in the track over the weekend to display scoring, and also getting us back online. We most likely won't have live video this weekend, but will have live scoring

Quick reminder on tires!

You may bring your own tires for practice!

All Seeding, Qualifying, and Mains must be run on marked spec tires purchased at the event.

Seeding rounds will use your best 3 consecutive laptimes to sort qualifying round 1, and will be reduced to 3-4 minutes per heat.

Tires for this weekend are:

  • TC classes: Gravity RC Type C, available for $25 per set (limit 2 marked sets). Optional 1 additional set available for A-Main drivers only.
  • USGT: Gravity RC GT premounts, available at $25 per set (limit 2 marked sets). Optional 1 additional set available for A-Main drivers only.
  • 1/12 classes: CRC Purple Stripe spec available at $20 per set (limit 3 marked sets). Optional 1 additional set available for A-Main drivers only.
  • F1: limited to CRC, TCS and Gravity tires. Racers may bring their own.

If you have a marked rim/tire that is damaged, please bring it to the attention of race management to discuss a potential swap. The decision will be at the discretion of race management on a case by case basis.

Hey, sorry the landlord won't let us in there on Thursday. Since we asked, they will probably be keeping an eye on us now.

No worries. Ended up getting a room at the Hilton for a decent price. I was curious on paying for entry. I was unable to pay online and I just want to make sure pain at the track on Friday will be fine.
