Today was another day of "open practice". The first article on the race,
along with a few photos, is now posted on SGrid Online, www.sgrid.com.
More to come tomorrow (as long as it stays dry.....)

Three photos are posted, to show the track layout. Click on the
small images to get to the larger ones.

Is there any way to get the up to date lap time when they are qualifing. I remember the sedan nats had something that we paid for. Are they at this race.

Not much action today, lots of rain and it is cold. Not much more than an hour of track time.

I don't believe there has ever been a race with this many 1/8 scale "Hero's" in attendance, at least not in this country.

Nothing official that I know of, Mike Meyers may have something. The fastest car I saw was Ralph Birch, but there were lots of guys close to his lap times. For sure he ran the most 19 sec laps that I saw but I did not time everybody.

Yes, this race is literally a "who's who" in 1/8th scale racing...

The live results should be running tomorrow morning.. The schedule is currently a drivers meeting beginning at 8am (EST), then at 9pm we begin 3 rounds of qualifying with 14 heats.

The weather wasn't very cooperative today, however, the weather man is suggesting we'll have great racing weather, with cool temps and sunny skies, an excellent recipe for high horsepower and grip!

It will be interesting to see the times after tomorrow's qualifying round, Ralph Burch did a series of Mid 19's in practice today, which I believe was a touch faster than the worlds 3 years ago.. I'd expect the pace to get even faster over the next few days..

Hey Brian!

Thanks for the good words. We are having a grand time as always so far. We had summer weather on Wednesday, and winter weather today.....just lovely out here in Ohio!

Cars are working good so far, and there will be lots of fast racing for sure. No doubt the semi-finals will be packed with some big names when its all said and done.

Sorry you couldn't make it, but maybe we'll see you in Vegas!

Scott
