Default The 2014 Labor Day Challenge @ Clark RC Park

Just a heads up we will be running our Labor Day Challenge program on Monday September 1st. For anyone who missed the Summer Showdown here's your chance to race at the Park before the year is over! I know this is a bit of a strange format but if you have ever been out to Clark RC Park then you know its all for fun. This is a race made specifically to remember how this hobby is supposed to be fun, its the reason we all started and its something we here at Clark try to never forget. Its FUN! So lets enjoy a great race day with great people and keep it fun for everybody.

1/8 scale Truggy
1/8 scale Buggy
Open 2WD Short Course Truck
Open 4x4 Short Course Truck

We are combining the electric and nitro 1/8 scale classes to honor how we used to run things being a small track... and because we can. ^^ 1/8 Electrics will have to come in for a 5 second pit stop in the A Mains.

We will be running a 2 rounds of qualifying and using a rocket round format. Your fastest heat will determine your starting position.

Mains for 1/8 scale will be:
A Main - 10 minutes
B Main - 8 minutes
C and lower Mains - 6 minutes

Mains for Short Course Trucks will be:
A Main - 10 minutes
B Main - 8 minutes
C and lower Mains - 6 minutes

Entry Fee
First Class will be $20
Additional Classes will be $10 per class

We will be getting trophies for this event for the A Main top 5 in 1/8 scale and top 3 in short course classes. We will also have a Grand Champion trophy for the end of the day...

Grand Champion Race
We have traditionally held a Grand Champion race at the end of the Labor Day Challenge and it goes like this. To Qualify for the race you must have won at the Summer Showdown in either the Nitro Buggy, Electric Buggy or Nitro Truggy class this year or the previous year. Or you can qualify by winning either the Buggy or Truggy class at the Labor Day Challenge this year or the previous year. Also allowed in is the Grand Champion from last years race. The race format is simple and pays tribute to the grass roots Clark RC Park came from... 10 lap sprint... no marshalls... no timing system. You must call out your lap as you cross the start/finish line. Last man standing gets the big trophy!
