Default 2014 Novak Offroad Race at the Plex - April 25-27

This year's Novak race takes place during a little warmer time of year, April 25-27.

We'll have a club race Thursday night, April 24th. Followed by controlled practice on Friday the 25th, 3 qualifiers on Saturday the 26th and Mains on Sunday the 27th.

The race format will be the same as last year, 3 Ifmar qualifiers with 2 bump ups. The Plexspec A-main will be 5-minutes and all other A-mains will be 8-minutes.

Classes will be Plexspec, stock and mod buggy, stock and mod truck, 4wd modified, Pro-2 and Pro-4 SCT and Novak Club 17.5 SCT.

The Novak Club 17.5 SCT will be like last year's SCB class with heads up qualifying. We'll take automatic qualifiers from round 1, a second group from round 2 and then have a LCQ, with a main event to cap off the day. We'll do this both days and combine the scores to determine the overall champ. Each entry will receive a handout Novak 17.5 club system with the option to buy at a reduced price after the event is over.

As usual Bob Novak is scheduled to attend.

I'll have the official flyer and rcsignup posted soon. I just wanted to get the date out there so people can start their planning.

Looking forward to the club SCT class. I imagine it will be spec gearing? Hopefully faster than last years SCB class.

Will tires be open or losi only?

No tire limitation. I'm still mulling over a FDR.

Are there going to be two 17.5 sct classes ? In the flyer it only shows the novak club 17.5 sct class. But on rcsignup there is a Novak 17.5 and a regular 17.5 sct class.

Yeah, I screwed up and didn't deactivate the class when I copied them from last years rcsignup. When I figured it out there were already entries, so I'll just have to go with it.

Do the doors open at 5:00 for the Club Race? Are we limited to one class?

Default NOVAK

Another Killer Novak race in the books,

Probably some of the best spirited racing at the PLEX in a long time.

Great attitudes all weekend, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, and South Dakota, Nebraska, all mixing it up.

Every class from beginners to MOD A mains was just flipping AWESOME.

That kind of event is exactly what keeps people coming back.

Mr. Volker is completely right. This event has always been fun and this one was just as awesome as the last. My friends from out of town said that this was the best track they have ever been to and absolutely loved the experience. This is our new annual team race. Thanks to Alex and the Hobbyplex crew for putting together such an awesome event and we are already looking forward to next years race. And congrats to everybody that placed this weekend!

Also, I should be able to post the link to the pics that I took this weekend later tonight when I get home from work. They are uploading to flickr right now. And you guys can do whatever you want with them.

Thanks again!

Here are the pics guys. Feel free to use them however you want. There are approximately 350 pics and lot of our local guys. Sorry if I missed anybody. Some of them arent super clear and some of them are kinda dark but overall I think they are good.

I'm with Pat on this one . One of the most laid back and competitive races I have been to so far. If this is a preview to what the summer series is going to be , you can count me in for every round.

I took a few pictures Sunday but got caught up in all the racing so there isn't that many. Hope to see everyone at round one of the summer series.
