Just to clarify a few things.

We are only allowing racers to sign up for one class per person.

There is no set number of entries for each class. The number of heats (18) will dictate the number of racers in each class. Heats will be filled, first come first serve, until we run out of heats. If some body sends in an entry to a class that is full and there is a heat for another class available, they will have the option to change their class.

Send your entries in early so that your not left out!

There will be no Banquet this year. We will have the FREE BBQ as usual at the track, but it will be Friday night. Lower main trophies will be handed out at the BBQ.

Get you t-shirts early or preorder because the popular sizes sell out quickly.

There will be power available under the tents. Food and drinks are available at the track. Air compresser and tire truing are available. There will be plenty of space available for people bringing their own tents and tables.

Motorhomes can stay overnight but there are no facilities available for them. AND you will be locked in at night! Please contact Jim for more info if you are bringing a motorhome.

Touring car guys, please check the rules on winternats.com. I will update the rules per ROAR rule changes. I will probably eliminate the exhaust port height rule since it was not teched at the 2004 ROAR nationals.

Hopefully I've answered more questions than I've created.

Have the ROAR rule changes affected what is legal in the engine department?

No changes to the track are being made at this time. The track will be resurfaced in about 2 weeks. Work will be done on the track to repair the damage from the huricane next weekend (10/23-24).

Damn you guys are quick.

These are the rules from last year:

Displacement = .129 ci (6-31)
Carb. bore = 5.5 mm (6-31)
Exhaust port height = 4.5 mm (6-31)
Internal ports w/ exhaust = 4 (6-31)
Stinger outlet = 5.0 mm (6-31)
Stinger length = 15.0 mm (6-31)
Turbo plugs are allowed


Ex. port height will most likely be dropped after I talk with the ROAR tech official. Europeans check your pipe.

Measure the stinger on the inside, because it sticks inside the pipe. Use something with a hook to find the end of the pipe. It should be good unless you cut it very short.

Update to motorhomes.

Motor homes will not be allowed overnight at the track. But the civic center does have motorhome facilities available for $15/night.

Note: the track is located on the same property as the civic center, but the motorhome area is on the opposite side of the track.

Please contact Jim Rice to get the phone number for reservations.

Fresh pavement, thank goodness!

Pardon me for asking, I know you guys have a lot to do and is much appreciated you putting on this event and know what your doing, but allow me to make one suggestion. I know how much you like that chicane, but since you guys are redoing things is there anyway you could make it safer? For instance, that 2" you mentioned is very true, but the fastest line through there is on the GREEN paint. So I would imagine that if you introduce something like a rubmble strip behind the green paint, and not a birm to launch cars with rather than a board being there I think it could be much safer.

The track layout will stay the same. Some more plastic will be added to the runoff areas to make things safer.

To bad you weren't here when it was tires and aluminum only.

Squeeze the trigger and hold your breath.

JUlian, the rush that you get going thru there is unforgettable.

Glad to hear that it won't kill my car in the future though.

I am glad you guys are keeping the track the same. That is the hardest funnest track I have ever been to. When you think you have it down it bites you hard in the A$$. I have been on the driver stand and have been EYE level with a car. That was with the Aluminum and Tire boards of old.

You guys put on a great show.

The exhaust port height rule will be eliminated from the 2005 ROAR rulebook. We will be removing this from our Sedan rules list.
