Default 2012/13 Midwest All-Star Carpet Series

It’s that time of year again.....

Well boys and girls let me first say that this year is going to different than in years past. First the series will only be at 1 location this year. There are many reasons as to why it’s going to be this way this year. I will explain them here for you guys so you know our though process. Brad and I both have a lot going on in our “real” lives and we just will not have the time this winter to travel with the series so rather than postpone or have someone else burden the load it we decided to keep it local. Also with some of the other series tracks that as of now are gone we were not left with too many options that were within a reasonable distance for our core group of racers. I really want to thank the tracks from past years they really helped the series grow and keep running and our plan is to make take the series back on the road next season when hopefully we have more time to do so. Next year we will look to add even more venues as we go forward. We hope you guys understand and we hope you can make it out to the races this season.

Awards

All awards will be handed out at the end of the series....and judging by what we gave out last year you are not going to want to miss this.
The Trophies will be based on turn out for the entire series.
Here is how they will break down if the class averages 10 people per event then we will do awards for the top 3 in the class.....if there is a 15 people per event for the class there will be awards for the top 5.....if there is 20+ people per even for the class then there will be awards for the top 10. If a class fails to get 10 people per event average but there is enough to race at each race meeting the 5 car minimum then there will be just 1 award for the winner of the class.

Don’t forget to follow us on Face book as well.....

Nice. Maybe the whole old gang will come out! I'll have to hit up Eugene too.

If I run a Tamiya RM-01 in 1/12th can I get about a 8 lap handicap?

Best bet I think is gonna be the Sweep 32's. I'm almost sure Eric at The Track will have these.

Don't be a "Cesar" with some dumb exotic tire...
