Default 2011 Memphis Area Rock Crawling

I'm going to post up any events that are close to Memphis in this thread. Since I will be posting up scale events and other club events, I plan on just editing that event's original post with comp results and pictures to keep this thread organized.

I have just got a venom creeper for Christmas and was wanting to know about how the competition works, how much it is, what is needed, and rules for your rig. I have raced Rcs for 4 years but am new to crawling.

Awesome! You should bring your truck up to the comp next weekend.

Here is a link to the rules and it explains it all.
http://www.usrcca.com/rules/2010_USRCCA_Rules.pdf

Basically we have a negative points scoring system. Penalties such as taking reverses, touching a gate or your truck can add points to your score. Making a clean progression through a gate will take away points from your score. Everyone starts their course with a zero and the lowest score for the day wins. We usually run through the rules for any newbies before we start if it's needed.

There is no charge for driving at a comp. No fancy equipment is needed to run a comp and there is no overhead charge or anythiing like that at our spots.


As far as what you need to do well in a comp....

drive time with your truck..... you have to know what to expect out of your truck

you need a good setup( do research... see what other people are running)

trial and error

Default ARK/LA/MISS Comp#1 Feb. 12th @ Jax

When: Feb. 12, 2011
Where: Paradise Park. Jacksonville, AR
Time: Start comp @ 10:00 ish
Google direction link: click me!
Format: comp 2.2, 1.9 & bring scalers for after the comp


This will be our season opener for 2011. Let's plan on running at least 3 courses in both classes. 1.9s will run after the 2.2s. We will probably need a few volunteers to help with judging. We will stick to the norm and run 60 point outs per course with a 20pt max penalty per gate to keep things moving.

Here is a link to the NEW USRCCA 2011 rules.

4. constantmotion ?
5. tc09minilosi 1.9
6. rootar 2.2

I have a friend moving to the Memphis area in 2019 and is heavily involved in crawling here in Oregon.

*He's not much of a racer, but told him I would reach out on here to see if there are any Crawling spots or clubs in the Memphis TN area.


Thanks
