race #5 will have the cups handed out for the series champions 1st thru 10th i have decided that because of some issues with hurricanes and date changes that if you scored enough points to finish in the top ten than you will get a cup..this means you may have missed 2 races but if there wasn't enough guys to finsih higher than you in the points or there just wasn't 10 cars in the field than you get a cup. the very least i can do for you all. remember the cups are sponsored by rgu repo graphics! ronny hames is the man! so if you can stick around for a half hour and watch the champions get there cups! next year it could be you? rpm should have some food available also..i hope we end on a solid note!

Yikes!

Did'nt think I was gonna be able to make this race as I'll be in Kissimmee on the 23rd for a car show at Oldtown but now me tinks I'll just throw all my r/c stuff in the trunk and if I'm not to hungover from all the overindulgence(an oldtown tradition)I'll just drop by for a little racing. If I make it. Please hold the noise down. Last year even my hair hurt.:freak:

I am going to do everything I can to get someone to work for me that day. It will be hard because it is on a weekend. I really enjoyed racing at RPM last Saturday. If I can't make it, Katfish just keep us informed on the plans for the next series. I will make as many races as the Navy will allow.

Kat I wasz looking for times I know Mike Boylans 60 lapper is a record but I would like the times. I think when you know the record it gives everybody something to shoot for. I unlike alot of people care more about going faster each time I hit the track than winning. what i am saying is I would rathe finish 2nd and run 60 laps than win with 58 laps.

For the 5 weeks of the series, you keep 4 of the 5 weeks points. You get 100 for 1st, 99 for 2nd etc. TQ gets 1 bonus pt. 404 pts, would be a perfect score. So basically if you didn't attend at least 4 of the 5 weeks, you stand no chance for winning that class.

oh I was under the impression that it was 3 out of 5 so that way you can't have a tie. I know that I can't win the points but I was hoping that I had a shot at a top 10 in only 3 races

He's giving out trophys for the top ten, in spite of weeks attended. Who know's? At least you may have a shot at some wood.
