Got two questions for the powers-that-be:

For the electric GT class, how many racers do you need to make it a class?

If there is any interest, could electric F1 be run as a class?

Oh, one more question, "In electric sedan, is it open tire or will there be a spec tire?"

I will bring mine with me so there are two of us right there. It would be nice to eventually include this class to the electric side of the program going forward. The track is the perfect size for racing F1.

What motor are you running in yours? In my area, it is 21.5BL.

I have a 21 I could run. Though I usually run a stock silver-can?! .... keeping it real. Lol

Any results from last year around? Curious as to attendance in the Sedan class. Starting to get spring fever..About a 9 hr. drive for me.

The below link contain the results of last year's Fireball Classic:



http://heartofamericaseries.com/results.html

The Fireball results are the race 1&2 links on that page. Both nitro and electric sedan had decent turnouts last year. Just pack it up and drive on down, you will have a great time.

Default Tire Shore

So what kind of tire shore do you guys use for nitro Touring? Track looks great! Reminds me of the old TSRCAR in Cincy. Looking forward to this summer.

In for F1 for sure and possibly GT-E. And the highly anticipated World GT 10.5 2S.
