I know I'm not going to be able to get to Indy for this race, but I do have a couple of things that you might might want to think about. It has to do with your sedan class, you are listing the motor as a Venom Fireball. Does this mean it's going to be a handout? You also say only 5 cells, I think most people run 6 cells. Those are just two things that I think you might want to keep in mind. Good luck with the race and I hope that it is a huge success.

We went with the 5 cell Fireball combo because it's popular in Northern Indiana as well. It's an excellent combination. I see your point, we're just trying to get our region together.

litsluv. The 5 cell fireball combo is a very good performer. 5 cell is what the chassis is designed for. 6 cell can run in the unlimited class.
badsign, by 'unlimited' do you mean souped up xray-mrs4(if anyone is still running one)-brp?
For stadium classes---do we have to run foam? How about hpi x-patterns or Losi street treads? Will there be jumps and such for stadium classes?
I'm putting it on my callendar & will post it in my shop.
We start our racing season this Sat.

Hey Dune,

Unlimited is any chassis, stock or aftermarket, including M18, MRS4, BRP, Duratax Street Force, whatever. Motor and battery rules wide open

I can't see any harm in treaded tires, as long as they have no spikes.

Yes, there will be jumps for stadium. I guess we could call it "Off-Road carpet"

Hey, we have quite a few guys interested in attending. One observed the 2 qualifyer statement on the flyer. Will there really be only 2 quals?

Yikes! That's a major typo. It will be three heats. I changed the original flier. Thanks for pointing that out.

Glad to hear it! I'm getting some responses from Ohio's BRP gang as well, so we should have a good show.

Default BRP cars to 6 cells

The BRP drivers have requested a change to 6 cells rather than 4. We are accomodating them and changing this rule.

Body rule change: After several requests, 4wd Sedan class will be allowed to run either 4 door sedans or 2 door PRODUCTION based bodies. No wedge style, GTP or LeMans style bodies allowed for this class.

I have also included two track photos: 33' * 63' with two 17' driver stands
