Default The Dirt Oval Festivus Thread

why do we have to work around other people race dirt schedule. Thats bs some of our local racer looks forward racing that days. i really dont care what u think it really stupid. i gest i going to put my car back to off roading sence there is NO CONFLICT WITH THERE SCHEDULE. So now i gest i wont have to worry about what weekend is there going to be racing. oval is getting worst. ive been doing it for a very long long time every year just gets bad. its my opinion.

Im not sure what your talking about, when I come up for the winter series the off roaders are waiting for the oval to finish so they can race. And the winter 1/8th series has to run on sundays, which is made up of about 80% out of town racers

Ditto.

I am one of those off roaders who have waited week after week for the oval guys to get done on Saturday. The schedule shows, doors open at 3, races at 5:30. The oval guys do not get down until 4 or later.

Not sure what LOSI/RACER is talking about.

If it was t for the off road track you wouldn't have a dirt oval to drive on. How many people generally show up for dirt oval on average. I'm guessing a whole hell of a lot less than show up for off road. Hell, oval and on road combined probably doesn't come close to what off road brings in.

Also, the dirt racing is screwed up for a month because of races on the carpet track. You don't hear the off road guys whining.

To The Finish Fridays: Doors open at 4:00 and racing starts at 7:00.

Speed Trap Saturdays: Doors open at 3:00 and racing starts at 5:30.

So no we are not waiting to race at 7:00 we are waiting to race at 5:30. Plus some practice time before we race would be nice.

We have been running dirt oval at the same time on Saturdays since 2011. We have historically finished around 5 p.m. with little or no breaks. I pay my $25-$35 entry fee just like the off-road guys do. This should entitle me to my allotted track time to run my races without feeling rushed or being pushed. The Saturday off-road program just started a few months ago. Maybe the off-road start time needs to be adjusted later so you don't have to "wait" so long. Or you could race on Tuesday or Friday night. Many different options for off-road racers.

The offroad schedule is messed up for a month too. It's just the way the scheduling worked out. The TCS race, ROAR CARPET NATIONALS, and the BRL race are all kind of a big deal.

I believe we've given Thursday nights a go before and the turnout wasn't there. It started out fine, but faded.

Offroad was split to two nights on the weekends because of Too many entries. If someone wants to come and race mod buggy, their only choice is Saturday night.

As far as the time goes on Saturdays, when I came up with those times I meant for them to "float" a little. 4pm was more of a guess.

When the oval turnout only produces 6 or 7 heats and heats are only 4-minutes, it should only take maybe 45-minutes to complete a round of qualifying. If you have three rounds of qualifying and mains, starting at 11:30, being done by 4pm isn't a whole lot to ask without being "rushed."

When there's a bigger turnout, then yeah, We'll start late. No biggie. It's still better than staying here until 3am on a Friday.
