You might get some more updated pics from here. There is another area that will be opened up for more pit space. There will be plenty of room for everyone. Make sure to bring an extension cord just incase you need to pit in the other room.

This looks like it'll be bigger than the JConcepts race we hosted in November!

Some additional information:

We'll open at 9:00 AM on Friday to allow plenty of time for pit setup before practice starts at 10:00 AM. There will be no pit setup on Thursday night.

We'll open at 7:30 on Saturday morning and there will be a last chance practice session from 7:45 to 8:45 prior to the start of qualifying rounds. That session is only for those who were not able to make Friday practice.

Our main pit room has 88 2' x 4' pit spaces with power outlets on the table tops. For large events like this one we add pit tables in a connecting space where we normally have our carpet track. We'll provide tables, chairs and we'll run extension cords for power in that space. If you think you might end up in that space you might want to bring a power strip. We'll have a monitor in that room so racers pitted there can keep up with the race program.

C ya at the races......

ATTENTION ALL RACERS:


With entries rising fast and an expected 250+ entries for the Venom Offroad JAM, we are going to be working hard to keep the show moving and everyone having a good time!

Part of the fun of racing R/C is late night dinners with friends, wrenching on rides in the hotel rooms, and getting a good night's sleep! In an effort to finish up the racing at a reasonable time we have made the decision to run 3 QUALIFIERS instead of 4.

We realize that won't offer as much track time for racers, however, our main goal is to make sure everyone enjoys the weekend with us! By cutting out one round of qualifying our goal is to finish up 4-5 hours sooner Saturday, allowing everyone to have plenty of time to relax and rest up Saturday night for Sunday's mains and raffle prizes!

Here is the new race format:

- 3 Rounds of qualifying - 5 Minutes each - Heads Up Racing - Resort after each round
- Qual Points Best 2 of 3 Rounds
- Top 8 make the mains, with 2 bumping up from each lower main

We certainly hope that everyone understands the reasoning for this decision, and is gearing up for a great weekend of racing and fun!
