Are the trucks going to run Novak only?
For weekly racing I don't think it's necessary. I'm thinking any one that is planning on running the BRL Series races would be running Novak anyway. I'd say run any legal motor from last year but I would like to see no tuning rotors this year.

We're only a month away from our first race day. So who's running what classes??

Mike, I've got a Outlaw. Box stock, nothing fancy. Even got pin spike & ribbed fronts a 2 cell and 6.5 stator. You are welcome to use it.

BRL Test Day

Just wondering if anyone wants to head down to Omaha in Dec. for a carpet oval day. It would be a good warm up before the BRL.
:thumbsup:

ATTENTION!! Oval Schedule Changes!!

OK, after talking with our local racers, we are going to revamp the schedule to try and get the carpet oval going again. Splitting the days between dirt and carpet has been a failure so, at the request of the racers, we are going back to running both on the same day. Starting after the first of the year, dirt will run every Saturday and carpet will run every other.

There will not be carpet racing December 1st & 22nd from the previous schedule but, there will be a test-n-tune day December 15th.


Here is the 2013 HobbyPLEX Winter Oval schedule:
January 12th - Carpet & Dirt
January 17th - TNT Dirt Oval
January 19th - Dirt Oval
January 26th - Carpet & Dirt
January 31st - TNT Dirt Oval
February 2nd - Dirt Oval
February 9th - Carpet & Dirt
February 21st - TNT Dirt Oval
February 23rd - CARPET ONLY (BRL race prep)
March 1st, 2nd, 3rd - BRL Carpet Oval
March 9th - Dirt Oval
March 14th - TNT Dirt Oval
March 16th - Carpet & Dirt
March 22nd & 23rd - MDRA Dirt Oval
March 28th - TNT Dirt Oval

BOLD are the carpet dates, RED are Thursday Night Dirt Oval

We will run both BRL Spec classes, 17.5 Sportsman Truck and 13.5 Stock Spec. Spec motors from this season and any motor that was legal last year will be allowed to run, Short Stack motors will not be legal.

Our combined race day schedule will be different than last year.
Doors will open @ 8AM, carpet practice 8:30-10AM, carpet racing begins @ 10:30, three rounds & mains. Should be done around 2PM.

Dirt practice 2-3PM, Racing begins @ 3PM, three rounds & mains. Should be done 6:30-7PM.

The December 15th schedule will be a bit different as it will be FREE open practice on the carpet oval from 8AM until 2PM. The dirt track will not open for practice until NOON and racing will begin @ 2PM.

February 23rd is a carpet only race day to get the track prepped for our BRL race the following weekend. Doors will open @ 8AM and racing will begin @ 11AM. We will run four qualifying rounds and mains.
**We will be adding two Outlaw classes for this one race, 13.5 TC & 13.5 Late Model. Max of 10 cars per class, $10 entry, the 'PLEX will supply a set of tires, 4 minute qualifiers & 6 minute mains, the bottom two qualifiers in both classes will not run the mains:(.

Hopefully this will get out some new racers and build up the numbers on the rug.:thumbsup:

Feedback is greatly appreciated, please post if you are going to be running on the carpet and what you plan on running. This would also be great to get me an idea on numbers for the December 15th test-n-tune day.

Thanks,

Tim Ski

Some real good racing on the dirt this past Saturday!!

The last race day of 2012 is Saturday. Don't forget, we are having an open practice session on the carpet oval from 8AM 'til 2PM. The dirt oval doesn't open until NOON and racing begins @ 2PM.

Hope to see everyone then!!
