Mike can you please email me a set schedule? I am trying to work around your schedule as much as possible... I am asking this to be helpful to both of us... I am not going to put something on a concrete date and I assume that you would not do the same...

If I had a "set" schedule I would have posted it for ALL to see Brian.

There will be a min of 4 weeks between each Round next year. The April and May dates are pretty well set. Round #1 has a limited timeframe.........

That is an awesome idea... Gives time enough between NCT rounds for club racing. I know this year most of our area's core racers didn't race hardly any club races because of the NCT. It's not really a bad thing for people who run all the NCT rounds, but for local guys who just want to go race club races, it hasn't been good.

Well, you done a great job at taking the clubs attendance down to Zero this summer.

A-main attendance = 0
Trcr attendance = 0
4 -seasons = 0

for Nitro anyway`s ...

How do think you could improve this ?


You blaming the sun don`t cut it.....

Mike had nothing to do with local racers not running at there home tracks. Most of the Northwest racers wanted this series and have supported it. So be kind and get off Mike,s rear.

Who wants to run nitro indoors when you can run outside with over 100 enthusiastic racers!!! Hello!! And if I remember right A main had over 100 entries for thier series race and I am sure TRCR will have over that also!! It all works out.

It's not the fault of the NCT that club racing is down...it's just that big races are more fun. If I'm gonna haul all of my crap out of the garage I want to stay and race for a while. It's not worth getting out the whole show for a club race. Sad but true...

Okay,
So lets hear comments from people involved in the Tour,

It looks like there may be some new tracks "bidding" on a spot.
Great!!

How far is the average guy willing to travel every month?
300? 400 miles?
