Didn't see any of these at the track Saturday?

There was about 4 or 5 of us that didn't go because we didn't know what was going to be running and setup rules for the classes. So making the trip and then not running much would have been a waste. If it was a practice day we would have gone because no matter what we would have still been able to drive and check setups.

Nobody knew what was going to run until they saw what people had Saturday. They can offer to run a class, but if people donít show up the class doesnít run. If 4 or 5 had shown with Euro truck, it would have run

This weekend is open practice for off road. Saturday and Sunday

Well first weekend of off road practice is complete. Buggys work better the SCT in my opinion. But we will see how the first race goes next Sunday.

Any mini-z folks practicing while you were there?
Any discussion on if practice fees gain access to both tracks? Or are the RCP track and Carpet two different practice fees?
