The speedway is presenting it to them and I'm working on getting everything setup for live audio and scoring on liverc.com. I might even be able to get some live video setup too as long as we don't broadcast any of the 1:1 car stuff.

Yep this is shaping up to be a very good event.
A couple things to remember.

We have a couple deals setup on rooms so if your going to go you need to book them soon before they are GONE! I realize these aren't cheap and they are hard to find because of the Indy Car race. These hotels did give us a break on pricing but there are deadlines on how long they will hold them for us.

Also we do have a limited number of display booths available for this event so anyone interested in getting your product in front of 30,000- 50,000 spectators let us know. So far Serpent and Blue Groove RC Concepts have signed up for a booth. We have a number of other companies talking about it so if your not already discussing it with us and are interested email me. These are 1st come 1st served I'm not holding booths for anyone. Also we are putting product together for give aways for spectators and racers.

I tell everyone the same thing....... racers & RC manufacturers alike.

If you can go to the RC Pro Homestead Miami International Fuel Challenge, you should be part of it. This will be way more than just another R/C car race.

RC Pro can give you over 30 Thousand reasons why missing this opportunity to promote the sport of R/C racing is a very big mistake!

Just a couple updates for those who don't check our site.

IF we hit our entry limits here's how things can work.

Thursday - practice
Friday - practice until 2:00 then 2 rounds of qualifying ending at 8:00pm
Saturday - 1 round of qualifying starting at 8 am. Mains start at
11:30 and end by 7:00pm.

If any problems arise we can have some time on sunday. This can hold with trying to get the majority of our program in on saturday plus give more practice time on friday and one round of qualifying on saturday. We can open the track friday night after qualifying until we need to shut down. Entries must be in by March 10th we can then set a definite schedule since we will know exactly how many qualifiers we will need per round and how many mains we will need.

If we get less than our maximum turnout we can either have a more relaxed saturday (get to watch more of the happenings) or add an extra round of qualifying.

The Holiday Inn University of Miami is holding 20 rooms for RC Pro racers going to the Homestead event. If you are going to use this hotel please make your reservations! They started bugging me two weeks ago because no one has made a reservation yet. This tells me they are going to try and get out of holding the rooms until then unless they start getting some calls.

Jeff and I called a number of hotels looking for rooms and deals and this is one of the only ones that was willing to work with us.

Seems the speedway is going all out the weekend of this event. I picked this up off their website.

SpeedJam is One Day. Too Much Excitement. Three Races.

HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY TO HOST INAUGURAL XM SATELLITE RADIO SPEEDJAM, MARCH 24TH

On Saturday, March 24, South Florida will be introduced to a brand new kind of event that combines food, racing, a car show, music, and more, all for one low price: XM Satellite Radio SpeedJam.

What is XM Satellite Radio SpeedJam?

Racing: Three exciting races will take place as part of XM Satellite Radio SpeedJam. First, up and coming drivers will hit the track in the IndyPro Series Miami 100. The Linder Industrial Komatsu Grand Prix of Miami will follow, with Ferraris, Porsches, and Daytona Prototypes racing around the Speedway's 11-turn road course. After the sun sets, the action will heat up with the XM Satellite Radio Indy 300, as Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti, Helio Castroneves and others hit speeds of over 200 miles per hour, under the lights for the very first time

Food: In addition to the tasty treats and savory smells of the food booths at Homestead-Miami Speedway, there will also be an actual Memphis in May sanctioned barbecue competition taking place on site. Come watch top grill masters battle for prizes and a spot in the upcoming national competition.

Car Show: South Florida car enthusiasts will enjoy the car show at XM SpeedJam. This show will feature everything from high-end luxury cars and restored classics to exotics and even choppers on display.

Music: Youll enjoy free concerts and music of all types throughout the day as part of XM Satellite Radio SpeedJam. Stay tuned to hear which nationally-recognized recording artist will perform a pre-race concert before the Indy 300!

MORE: Carnival rides, high-speed karting races, remote control (R/C) car races, interactive displays, showcars, and much more, all for one low ticket price.

Tickets for XM Satellite Radio SpeedJam are on sale now. Please call (866) 409-RACE or visit www.homesteadmiamispeedway.com or www.racetickets.com.
