Looks like they will be staying indoors for tomorrow... I just hope everyone that attended the race can run thier mains on sunday.

Looks like all the guys in the top 10 are making run time which should make racing even better on sunday...




What is the last qualifier in the A-main and how many bump ups are they taking from the lower mains?

The rain has stopped, and the weather map looks much better. It's way too late in the day though for any racing, not to mention it's still plenty wet outside. I've heard from Paul Becattini that Chris is likely to be out at the track tonight, getting it dry, and spraying it with their special traction compound. Hopefully the track will be ready for racing starting early tomorrow. I'm sure it will take a few hours to get the track in shape, but the weather seems to be cooperating. Sunday should be cloudy, but dry.

SGrid Online (www.sgrid.com) is updated, with lots of new photos and a photo gallery. Here's a few of them...

There's a hundred or so more photos posted on SGrid. Nikon's new D3 makes it much easier to get perfect photos of r/c action - this is the first camera that actually has an autofocus system that can keep up with an r/c car! There are three people at the track using the D3.

To be continued...

The mains have been posted on LiveRC for tomorrow's racing.
http://liverc.rccars.com/view_result...ns_Listing.xml

If racers would like to see the sheets they are posted at the Country Inn Suites, in the lobby.

Track opens at 7:00 a.m. for 1 hour session of practice.

(Ruben ran out of battery in his laptop and asked me to post this for him. )

Mike Myers - where on the Grid are your photos? I went to 2008 on road forum... I guess that's not right?

Dawn, go to www.sgrid.com and you'll find all the news stories in the center section of the page. You need to log in before the "read more" button will work. For Thursday's slide show, go to the very bottom of the page where it says "more photos" and click the link - it's at the bottom, and easy to miss. I need to make it more prominent.

To see full size images, you need to click on the thumbnails.

To see the slide show, your computer needs a 'flash' viewer.


If there's a break in the program, I might get a few photos up sooner. If not, they'll probably be up late in the day.
