There is a very strong rumor about entries being included as a lottery system. I'm still uncertain but I believe that the powers that be will meet very soon to finalize the entry proccess.

Pick-Six or Scratch-n-Sniff

They need to get busy and get entries over as soon a possible so people can plan for time off work. I really don't like the lottery deal because most people come down with friends to make the trip more affordable. With the lottery, you may get in and your friends don't and now you can't afford to go because you have to pay for everything yourself.

I agree that the lottery system is stupid. I will be attending this year though, last year looked like a blast. Does anyone know approx when the race will be?

There is talk of lottery because the East coasters are upset because they can't get their entries in soon enough before ROC is full. Considering that this is about the only major race that Socal has I say screw the lottery... East Coasters have plenty of races to check into. If anything there should be 2 ROC's at both ends of the US.

If they do a lottery, I think they should make it so that at least the top 10 or 20 in each class from the previous year are automatically in. I still say no lottery though. Just make sure everyone knows when and where the entry form are available on-line so if you really want to go, you can print it out and next-day air it to the track.

I really hope they don't do a lottery. Mike is right. The East coast guys have ton's of races they can pick and choose from. We've got one. So what if it's full of locals. We have many of the best racers in the country here in Southern California.

Randman-

Hot Tuna is correct, the race is usually held over Memorial Day weekend. The entries usually are availible towards the end of March.

As for the lottery, I say screw that!!! The entry form was availible on the internet the night before they hit the stores in magazines. If someone from the east coast wanted to go they could have gotten the their entry in the mail the morning the entries hit the stores and if it was red labled, it would be here before or at the same time as any west coast racer. Jon Kerr is right, there are plenty of major races on the east coast that making it cost prohibitive for west coast racers to attend.

That's my two cents.....
