Good luck coordinating that. Like I said earlier, I've tried to get a group together to go to specific tracks and it was met with disinterest. I guess people like to just go places on a whim. There are 2 or 3 of us that really try to plan it out if there are other places we want to go. Unfortunately, 2 or 3 does not make for awesome racing.

I'd love to see TC-based classes take off at Access. It's the closest place to me and it's a good track with good people. I'm just not going to burn up tires and other resources to race 1 or 2 other cars.

Not much to coordinate, cbus guys should race at Access unless big race elsewhere (halloween classic, region 5 champs, etc) Tire wear? really? I just use my 3 year old tires if there are less than 5 cars.

Everyone needs to stay in their own yard and that's that? Not hardly, dude. Variety is the spice of life, man. I can say at least I made efforts to get more guys to come to Access when I knew was going to be there, which initially was every other week.

Thats an extreme interpretation; I go to the other tracks when I know theres a bunch of people going also, but you cant complain about the turnout at your local track when you wont commit to it yourself

Had another good night of testing last night at Access. Todd's WGT car is really running strong. Donnie made some improvements, and we finally worked the gremlins outta Dad's car. Rick looked good as always. Brad Penwell ran his first laps with his new radio, and now we'll begin dialing in his car to complement the new found level of control.

All in all, another great night.....

Default New WGT Mystery Driver

We have solid information there could well be a new WGT entrant as early as this week. He has a CRC Pro car that will be outfitted with a new LE chassis and some other goodies.

You may be surprised who it is! Anybody want to make a guess?

Hey Bob,

You can get them at Access Hobbies. If you have any more questions about them, do not hesitate to ask, or stop by my pit.

See you at the track!

Here is a clue -- Not a Dayton area driver.
