Someone from ROAR will have to answer that one.

Not going to happen I'm afraid. They run them together so bump up drivers have time to prepare for the next race.

Default camper

The closest camp around is 1/2-3/4 mile from the track and the other is under two miles away.
The parks dept. said no to our request for over nighters. You could try , but you may get a ticket.
We are in need for someone to be there for security..??

The camp grounds have been posted in the forum.

You can bring your camper. You just can't spend the night in it at the track. But, it can be there during the day.

Make sure to pay attention to the rules underlined. Those are the rules that have changes. It seems to me we are taking on some Off-Road rules. Something seems odd in some of the changes. This Nationals should be interesting if nothing else. I wounder what is going to happen to that racer running 2 classes(since Roar combined them). They could possible end up running almost 3 hours in one day and possible even have to turn marshal.

See everyone at the Nats,

DJ Apolaro

Jim, if I read this correctly, the changes from nationals last year would be that there are NO cars that qualify for the A-main Unless they run more than 10 cars in the Main. I thought last year, we set the fastest 4 cars and then bumped the top 3 from each semi to make the 10 car field. Also did they not bump 2 cars from each lesser round (1/4 finals down)?

They also did this with Masters last year which was pretty fun, but not sure if they will again, as it does not make the % of racers based on the limits for this class.

Interesting
