Jim - Tony,

Hoping for a little lower Hotel prices with the earlier Race dates than we normally have seen from past Winter Nationals.

Have you spoken to a couple motels about group room rates?

OV prefers the Robert E Lee - Best Western

Hi Jim
Mailing my entry today.

Wanted to Thank you guys for having lower mains at 30 minutes. I appreciate gettting to have a longer main if I qualify poorly (which is my norm). Never understood major events having 15 minute lower mains. The one great draw for me to the Mid West Series is the fact all mains are the same length. The Lower main guys support this industry $ wise as much or more then the sponsored higher mains guys, so thanks again.

Bill

Hey all, most if not all of the nitro drivers on the Skyrocket team will be at the event, we have word that some of the 5-Nines team may be heading down as well.

Looking forward to running on the new surface! Any photos?
