Its going to be best 2 out of 4 or best 2 out of 3 depending on rain for qualifying.

Tech:
Just like the 2011 1/8 nitro nationals. Whatever was legal or illegal will be enforced at this race....... bodies, wings, tires, rims etc.

Make sure your vehicles are legal!

We will check various items after qualifiers fuel tank, weight, dimensions, throttle return springs etc etc. In order to speed things up tech will be after your qualifier, each qualifier we will randomly check one item or multiple items on the vehicles. This way tech will run smooth and you don't have to worry about being late for your qualifier. You just have to worry about making your car legal and getting to your turn marshal spot. If your car is not in tech after your race it will be disqualified from that round. Luis rule there haha

Also turn marshalling...... If you are not out there you will be disqualified.

I'll be there this Saturday on 30th since I stopped at Mills with new layout for that double looks scary (full throttle to reach over). But I'm excited!
