I've already got some ideas for this one. You'll probably see some childhood favorites brought up to speed!

should we run them at tracks with taller finishes to let some bigger stuff fit .?... sloppy finish is 6" or so, 6 lane can be raised for clearance... what do you think ?

I dig this one too. Since it's next year I should have my workshop up and running by then. I have several cars lined up that I want to build, but they're just combos that I think will make fast cars - so I'll have to wait for tourneys like this to enter since theme won't matter.

I'm in!  Depending on when we start and include running them in Lincoln I'll run the week before or after at my house. Johnnies usually meet the 2nd Sunday of the month. I can confirm the date with Jeremy once the month is decided.

OK I'll bite, sign me up Smitty. I can host if needed, I will be building a new track soon using Protecto Pak seamless track & a Micro Wizzard timer, with an LJLRC style start gate.

Hey Smitty,

Why don't you schedule this race for after the Sedan race In February?  I can host the first race if you like...and then, up to DadVBall's.

I'm hoping to run the Tran-Am 'curves" race In the Spring, in case anyone would like to set their tracks up outside. And the Beater trucks can wait for a bit...we are running trucks next month (and Hot Rods!).

What do you think?
