So Sept 21-23, take that long weekend and bring the family. Request work, school or personal days. Just make sure you are there. Im working very hard to ensure everyone will have a great time, win lose or draw...

Im having all the prises given away on Saturday so our out of town guys can get an early start headed home...pics ,food, tshirt and everything else...so plan on Saturday being the long day for me and staff

Sunday will have trophies and pics...for winners circle and interview of winners

Concourse winners will get $50 CASH for VTA and GT and a new body...winner will be based on TRUE USVTA paint schemes and GT will be based on GT stlye race themes

The 1st 50 VTA entries will get $10 off...and that list is getting really short, really fast....so if you are part of the 1st 50, you can get a second class for $15 and total out at $40....SWEEET

Im still waiting on the price of hotel from Sleep Inn, mgr has been out on business.

We also have another food vendor that will serve FREE food...Uptown Grille has agreed to come out and serve pulled pork sandwhiches and chips for PAID entrants.....details still working

Entries can be sign-up on RCSIGNUPS or post here...Im working the list now and guys its getting really BIG...I need to know as much info as possible...Im not willing to cut off till its a must...Im working on renting a portable if needed as well as using the dirt room( completly re-done and cleaned)

The USVTA is going to get the very much attention it needs and deserves from the R/C world...I am along with all of you are going to make sure this happens....This is our race, and its up to us to support it and bring the VTA and onroad racing to the front of the racing community.

Pit Space and Track

For those not aware we have re-done our track thanks to some donations and track owner Robert Dirla. We are running on newer carpet and a new subfloor, that makes the track ultra smooth. Its 100% better than last year and 12th scale is rolls on it great. We will be doing some more upgrades leading up to the Nats..

The pit tables have also got major...MAJOR upgrades. We have racers that have donated to have these tables done to make our track top-notch. We have all the ones in the carpet room completed but 2, and they will be done by the Nats. For the 8 tables in the dirt room...all new table tops and extreme clean job, it will also have scoring and video on the screen pa also.

here is a pic of the table I share with Aaron, David Sr & Jr...David and his family made it...Thanks again

oops...pic of the track..sorry

Do you have a detailed schedule of each day? Just wondering what is going on when, so I can plan on when I need to be in town.

Not going to miss it this year!

Nevermind....should have scrolled all the way down to the bottom before posting.
Nothing to see here, move along! :)
