These are the race dates that we have so far from the tracks that are holding Qualifying Races and giving their racers a chance to be invited to the East Coast Paved Oval Invitational.

Seaford, DE (June 26th)

Cooper’s RC Race Center (July 24th)

Easley, SC (August 14th)

Echeconnee, GA (August 8th)

The Grove, SC (August 21st)

MSA, TN (September 18th) this is a special circumstance date and the only one that will be held after September 4th)

Qualifying in the A main of any of these races will guarantee their racer an invitation as long as that class is offered in the Ease Coast Race. We will update these race dates as we receive them.

NOTE: A question I keep getting asked is “Can I race at this event if I do not have a Qualifying race at my track?”

First of all, we would rather see your track hold a Qualifier so that more of their racers can get a chance to be invited and also let your track get a Special Race out of this program. But, if that is not going to be the case then YES you can still race in the Non-Invitational portion of this event on September 24th and 25th AND if you TQ your class and your time would have been good enough to get you in the A Main of the Invitational, you will be given the choice to transfer or “Bump Up” to that race.

What are the classes for the Easley Race?
We will be offering all of our regularly scheduled classes on the 14 as it is also a special event day. (I've been announcing it in the driver's meeting, have you been there?)

Legends, 4-cell Spec, 4-cell super Spec, 6-cell spec, nitro 4wd oval, 6-cell touring, and maybe nitro legends.

Lin, I've got a question....or two. If you qualify for the Open in one class, can you run more than one class? Is there a set group of classes that are going to be offered or can you qualify in anything? Meaning, if my track runs a "in reverse with two somersaults over the fence class" are you automatically going to offer that class or do you have a class line up that each track needs to offer? And if I remember correctly, you are going to offer "regular racing" and the Invitational, so is this a multi day event? And last but not least, what date are you looking at for the Invitational?

Steve, I hope that doesn't become a problem because we will run a open mod class. It is a good question that we will have a answer for soon.

Lisa, I will try to answer your questions. Most tracks that are holding a quilifing race have the classes that are going to be ran in the Invitational on September 25-26 th. The classes for the Invitational are 4cell spec, 4cell stock, 6cell spec(just added),19turn mod, open mod and Nitro. If a track holding a quilifing race has these classes the A main quilifiers will recive an invation to the East Coast Invatitional Race for that class. Thoes racers will compete in qualifing races with the other A main racers that quilified for that class. They will be competing for the 1st - 9th starting spots in the triple A mains to be ran on the 26th. The tenth(10) starting spot will go to the TQ of the non invitational races for that class if his time is faster than the 10th fast racer in the Invitational or that racer can run the A main for non-invitational racers. So to answer your question you can still attend the Invitational if your track does not hold a quilifier and run and have a chance to race in the Invitational. You may run more than one class weather you have qualified for it or not. The race can be incorporated in to any race program that a track runs. Just hold it and send us the results so the racers can be invitated to the race. At this time we are still considering other classe for the program in the non invitational races.:thumbsup:

Adding to Larry's post:

We will also offer the Nitro Class.

Steve, as Gary said we will offer Open Modified at the Invitational, Willow Mills is holding a qualifier but I do not have a date yet, they will probably have a mod class. If you can't find one, Coopers will be holding their qualifier on the 24th of July and will have a mod class for sure. (Give you a chance to warm up for the VA State Race on the 31st too LOL)

Lisa, not to restate what Larry said but yes you can qualify in more than one class but it has to be one that will be run at the Invitational. For instance you can not qualify in "in reverse with two somersaults over the fence class" and transfer it over to Spec.

However, if you qualify in Spec you can also run any other class you want in the non-invitational portion of the event and try to bump up to the invitational like larry said.

This brings up a point, if you want to qualify at more than one track, that is fine too. One of the major points of this deal is to get more racers our racing.

Sorry Lisa, the date for the East Coast Paved Oval Invitational is September 25th and 26th and the non-invitational portion of the race will be run along with the Invitational portion. ALL of the qualifying will be run on the 25th and the transfers or Bump Ups will be put in the computer that night.

The Main for the non-invitational race and the tripple A's for the Invitational will be run on the 26th

I have to say one thing about the Bump Ups so there will be no misunderstanding. If you TQ your class in the non-invitational part and want to Bump Up to the Invitational, you give up your TQ spot, you cannot run BOTH!
