Ted, are the heats going to be random or seeded? Any controlled practice using the heats or just 1/10 track time then 1/8 track time? Thx.

Weather? who knows. Right now and the last week you could use shorts for sure and then some. Two weeks from now, you never know. I hope it is a little cooler.

Practice; Plan for Wed. and Thurs. First hour will be open to all classes with fuel bottles available. After that the track will go back and forther between 1/8th and 1/10th groups every 45 min. for the rest of the day.

Heats are not really seeded, but are not completely random. IN english there will not be an A qualifier. There should be 4 heats of known fast racers, 2 or 3 groups of good racers and 3 heats of unknown. This has worked in the past and let different guys pit for their buddies. Also, there is plenty of areas to make a pass if you are faster than the racer in front of you. The track is also wide enough for a racer to go a little wide to let a faster car go by and not loose a lot of time or traction.

Tech. suggestions. Make sure your car is the correct weight and check your fuel tanks.

BRING YOUR ROAR CARDS and save some time at track check in.

Terry has an inside line on r/c hat apperal. I think he broke out the winter hat for this race. Barry would have been all over it if had Calloway on it.

More incriminating pic's to follow.....

Scott is secretly wondering if Rich has passed off tire trueing duties to Jim, while sucking down a giant slice of watermelon........
