Default Hobbyplex Offroad Schedule change

A lot of time and thought has gone into heading off those long, long Fridays in the Fall and Winter. The main issue has been the number of classes available to race.

Which is why we are adding a Saturday race night, but splitting what we race between Friday and Saturday.

Fridays will be a shortcourse oriented night and Saturdays will be open wheeled.

Plexspec and electric 8th scale can race both Fridays and Saturdays.

The new schedule allows everyone to race their favorite class twice a week. It also allows us to add 17.5 Stock SCT and Short Course Buggy on Fridays.

Fewer classes will make each night a little shorter and the following morning a little easier!

This is a great change. Now I can actually race twice if not every Saturday.

Super psyched about the schedule change!!

This should allow for the out of towners that race the traditional open wheel classes to attend club races more frequently. Hopefully, this will extend to the Summer Series next year as I really miss the third qualifier and prefer to race a little more frequently between heats than is working out this year.

Open buggy on Tuesdays, does that mean a mix of Stock/Mod buggy or something else?

It means you run whatever you want for motor. Adding a stock and mod class to tuesdays was not an option when we're trying to be done by 10pm

Quite a bit. During the winter months we usually have enough for a B-main.

I think with the split there will probably be more on Friday to start, but with the possibility of more out of town racers, we'll see plenty on Saturday as well.

All right folks the big change is this weekend. Hopefully everybody has recovered from the summer series hangover and are ready to race. The track will have a couple fresh elements and be in fine shape as we push into the fall.

I've also made a couple new facebook pages for the new nights. Please like them so you can keep up with any sheduling updates. There will be a few nights where fridays will have to be combined.
