Well Ted, if your asking which manufacture, I would have to say John's BSR's. If you are asking what durometer, I would have to say 35's for now. The rain Friday and Saturday made that track not up to its great reputation for awesome traction as we had some weepers. Lap times were off by about a second and a half. Hopefully we will be back on track for this weekend. Hope to see you all their.

Last year Cincinnati had 74 pre-registrations and ended up with 106 actual entries. A number of drivers came to this race to check out the track in preparation for the 1/8th Nationals. As of today the pre-registration stands at 51. Last year quite a number of drivers signed up the last 2-3 days for every race. There were about 30-35% of the drivers last year that did not pre-register for races. So if the same facts hold true this season it looks as though the Cinci race should have about 90-95 entries. So please go to www.midwestseries.com and pre-register by 12:00 pm Friday.

You're right, forcast has improved since I last looked. Looks pretty good now, will be down on Friday! Any Cinco De Maiyo celebrations planned?

Thanks Eli, I wasn't sure if we needed some kind of weird combination. Last spring we ended up using narrow hard front tires or something like that.

If all goes as planned at work and home I will see you Saturday.

Yes, BSR tires will be available at the track this weekend. Dennis Young will be selling Kyosho, Mugen and Serpent tires. He has a RED trailer.

The Pre-registration list keeps growing. Please take the time to go to www.midwestseries and sign up for this weekends race in Cincy. The weather report is looking really good. Remember to bring your ROAR card.

Yes you can sign up for ROAR membership at the track.

What are some thoughts of running 2 heats on Sunday and 25 min. Mains if there are less then 8 total Mains. We would still finish at the same time.
