Just so you know, the track layout is different then it was at the Bryon's race.... not much but different... Ira ran 15.9 or 15.8 today.... I got down to 17.1 breaking in an engine....

Look I as hoping just like you, he would pull it out, but that tire change with 2laps up on the field and Josh said he was not ready for it, did not help... Josh thought he had one more lap until Paul was coming in... Either way, it was a great race with Toso and Paul coming back.

I think the USA are going to have to shake these luck issues...

By the way, if you run in 2010, I will pit for you... Remember 2010 the Nitro worlds are in the USA...
My partner over CA just called me SAT night and said we are no longer need to worry about the 2009 1/8th WORLD cause we are going for the 2010 TC world....now, you should NOT be my pit man...we both race cause if I am able to go, I will have at least 2 person coming with JUST to do motor and mechanic.

I really want to know...HOW to qualify to race @ WORLD....?

Need to make the A main at the ROAR nationals.... After that I think you have to be asked, until they fill the field... You will need a bank roll and be able to take 2 weeks off...

I have heard it is the top 30 at the ROAR nationals, but someone will need to confirm this... bottom line, I would just be in the way....

Hey Howard, can't you put the photos up as a thumbnail, so we don't have to scroll sideways into the next county, just to read a post?

Never been to Leisure raceway. I've heard that all pitting is done indoors; Do we need to provide our own table? Will there be ample pit space for all of the racers? Not sure what pre regs look like; but I believe this race will have a bigger turn-out than the Byrons race.


Pass you soon...

That pictures does not show all the pit space, that is only 1/2 to 1/3, depending on your view of it...

Yes, you can pit outside, as others do, do they have power, I'm not sure... You can call the store at 815 722 1330 to find out.
