2018 1/8 and 1/10 scale
Schedule for February 14th 15th 16th and 17th

Track will be open all week. 7:30AM to 4:30PM

Friday Gates open 6:30 AM open practice and registration starts 7:30AM qualifying will begin 8:30 AM

Saturday Gates open 6:30 AM open practice and registration starts 7:30AM qualifying will begin 8:30 AM

Race Layout

Qualifying

ROUND 1 (Lap Timing)

Single car qualifying - We will line up by class in pit lane in order as depicted by race
directer you will get 3 laps to post the fastest you can 1 lap time and this will be the
qualifying order. (your fastest 1 lap out the 3) TQ will be awarded off this round

ROUND 2 (Heat races)

6 car heat races - Round 1 will set the field by lap times. We will have this 1 heat race to
set up the mains.

Sub-Mains

Mains will be set up off the 1 round of heat races. 8 car mains 6 lock in with 2 bump ups.

A-Main
WE WILL ONLY LOCK IN TOP 5 FROM THE HEAT RACE We will take 2 from the B-main
and 1 from the LCQ and be racing 8.

LCQ (last chance qualifier)

We will take the top 8 from round 1 TIME QUALIFYING that do not make the A main and
have a last chance qualifier to fill
the last slot in the A Main. (now you will need to be ready to turn around and run this race
quickly we may not have the ability to wait for batteries to charge or so forth. Top 8 will be
based off fastest lap times out of round 1.

A Mains (last) Then Awards for that night.




Race summery

We will be racing two tracks at once this will cut event time in half each day which will allow more time between rounds to work on your cars and to chill out. Our hope is this will make for a better race and a more relaxed atmosphere. If we start Qualifying at 8:30 we will be wrapping up by 8:30 with 3-4 min between rounds. This will allow for open practice each night after the mains until 10:30 and everyone to be able to go and eat at a decent hour and enjoy Speed weeks. If you are coming in late we will allow you to make a qualifying run to lock in a time and if you miss the mains you will still have a shot at the LCQ. We understand that some people may have to work these first couple of days this will allow you to still have a shot at the over all tittle. Keep in mind we are awarding winners every race night and a over all points champion after the last race. We have some Tittle sponsors locked down and still have a few on the fence we will be making announces as they come on board. We have several local 1/2 to 3/8 mile dirt oval tracks with in a hour of our facility so if anyone is able to take the week off we all go to several of the super late model races and modified races in the begging of the week. And oh yeah there is that race at Daytona less than a hour away from us. We designed this race to allow racers to take vacation come watch some hard core racing and bring the RC cars and do some racing of their own while they are here.

Cool rule update !

We have made some rule changes in the SC late model class and the SC open wheel class go to riverratrc.net to see the changes they will be in yellow
We made these changes due to the progression of these classes and believe the exceptions we made will keep these classes fair and balanced as well as let more racers compete from other areas. We have a few special exceptions to some of the other classes just for speed weeks we will be announcing them real soon
Also remember to book your hotels early because Speed Weeks will be in full swing during this time so book rooms early and if you use the ones that are on our web page and tell them that you are racing at our track they should give you a discount.
Its looking real good for the 2018 Speed Weeks program we are expecting the best turn out yet due to the call and PM we have been getting so don't miss out its going to be a blast.
thx
Steven Stratton
