I just found out about the date change when a friend of mine called me about it yesterday. So the new date is 5 months later than the original date. Great. Not only did I put in for vacation, but the new car kit, engine, and parts will be obsolete by october. Yes, I wanted to attend this Nats with fresh everything. I'm not sure if I can even go in October. Anyone know what the weather is like in Nebraska in October? It may be nastier than in May. Does weather factor into you decisions?

Thank you Dawn, Come on guys give these people a break, if you feel you can do a better job,run for office and DO IT. making everyone happy, It will never happen. If you put in for Vaction time just ask your boss to change it there is a lot of time between may and oct. This is why the hobby suffers so much all the people bitching, So acting like a bunch of 2 and 3 year old kids has to stop. Another question would ifmar consider making 2 races quaifilers for the WORLDS so this could give more chances to quaifily,MAYBE. Ft Myers or Paris race or Captiol classic. just an idea........

ROAR can only review the KNOWN and SCHEDULED sanctioned events LISTED ON THE CALENDAR at the time of the review to ensure there are no conflicts.

I am sorry if once again another race was scheduled over and that I was not fully informed by all 400 of our host facilities of all events planned in 2009. It appears we have much work to do in the communciation area in ROAR.
i thought there where going to be no more races in vegas well im looking forward to this race anyway thanks for the update

Hey Chris, how areyou? It has nothing to do with Ifmar. Roar sets the rules on what race is a qualifier in order to allocate spots for the WC. As far as i know, only the National is the qualifier.

Thats what i was thinking. So if so why should we ask ROAR to make another qualifier, like Captiol or Ft myers even somewhere on west coast. Or have 3 zones and have 20 drivers qualifiers from each.

If ROAR were to entertain adding a qualifier the Capitol Classic would be the most logical choice. Everyone goes to the Classic!!!

Seems like Nats are the qualifier, and should remain this way. Plus, it would seem only fair to the current Nats host club to keep this as-is.

Default qual

Dawn or Ruben, as I understand the top 40 qualify for the worlds. Will all qualifying count as one even though there's a Master's class? Meaning if you're running masters and after qualifying is over, it will be based on fastest times no matter what class?

Thanks
Kevin Hutchinson
