Last year I got mine at the track. John took care of the Sweep drivers . I'm sure they can have you some there. You can't bring your trick tires .

I am planning to run a Team C car at this race. Does anyone have a problem with that or do I need to stay home. At this point with no gear options and a new car , I'm sure I will be at a disadvantage if anything.

There is a machine shop on site, we can add some kickup in the chassis

For people who fly in for the race, will there be pit tables/chairs and canopies available for them?

Last year we had covered pitspots and chairs for about 50 racers, should be the same this year.

I have similar questions:

Sweep 50's - Bring your own, or must purchase there?
Cover / shade - I was going to bring a small table and will have chairs. - Covered
Pit Person - Need some help, as I will not have wife close to the car

Looks like I will be staying a little further away, but will give the wife something to do. She will probably drop me off and I hope she will pick me up later ............

Still trying to talk a few others to make the trip ..........

We would prefer you buy them at the track ($26 a pair). We will find some to help you out with pitting.

I've decided not to run that class Mark,
so I can pit for you. We'll find someone for 1/8.
