That's the TC nats for those that may be wondering.

Man, just 6 1/2 months away and the 08 TC nats hasn't even been run yet.

Nice looking track.

Did ROAR confirm that date? I dont think it is a good decision to put it a month away from the biggest race of the year "The Capitol Classic"? That will definately effect entries. I can't make ROAR nats this year for personal reasons but definately had it in the plans for next year but not if that is the date. oh well.

2009 ROAR nationals is probably bigger this time than the Capitol Classic (for sedan count anyway) and a month is reasonable, most importantly I believe the 2009 nationals qualify you for 2010 worlds held in America which people may be interested in attending. Most other nationals qualify you for a race far away in other countries especially ones with security concerns. Nebraska could be big this May, I'm glad it comes up sooner rather than later.

Nice looking track, but that is quite possibly the most annoiying sound track ever tacked to a race video!

The pit lane was changed last year. Its now a straight shot from the far right corner, instead of the the sharp turn like in the video.

I'm going to have to take a break from offroad that month and find me a sedan.

Here is the most recent photo I have of the track. The only difference from the photo is that the pit entrance is a little less exciting. You now have a straight shot into the pit from the corner in the lower right.
