I guess the only question is, what class to buy into? Is F1 going to be more popular this year?

I'd say 1/12 17.5 and WGT-R will be most popular. These two I'm guessing will be most popular. VTA, USGT, F1, and 1/12 13.5 will run also if numbers allow.

The onroad track will be setup before the last off-road race in Pingree which is Sept 9th. Tyler Lynn will have a few onroad cars with him so people that are new or haven't tried onroad before will be able to see what it's all about!


Another thing we decided to do this season is have a drawing for people that attend all three onroad races at the farm in pingree. (Nov 18, Dec 16, and Jan 13) For people that attend all three race dates we will put those names in a drawing and will draw for 4 different winners! The first 3 prizes are going to be a bottle of SXT 3.0 traction compound and one second class entry fee per winner. If you only race one class at The Winter Riot we will discount your first class $20. And lastly we are going to draw for another person for a raffle ticket during The Winter Riot which will be for the larger raffle prizes!

heck if someone had some rent-a-wrecks on race days I'd be interested in trying out some that WGT stuff looks interesting. Is there a place breaking down the specifics of what you need to have for each class (battery type, motor type, etc)

I am sending one of my extra wgt-r cars with Butts for people to try out at the September 9th race. Talk to Tyler about taking it for a spin.

Just look at the Roar rule book that pretty much covers it for any class

I'll be at the onroad track Saturday sept 30 and Sunday October 1 both days. Going to be there practicing anyone welcome to join! $20 all day for unlimited run time. Be there till about 5pm both days. If you plan to come down make sure to let me know cause if I don't know of anyone coming I might not be there early, but if I know people are coming I'll be there early. Tyler will probably be in the field combing so make sure to message me or somehow let me know if you plan to come.

Thanks Bryce Barnhardt
