Hey guys,

From the announcements made at the velo this weekend, it looks like Butch and Burkie have decided to make the jump to a new location in New Castle for this coming carpet season!

The track should be about 100'x40' with a 160'-170' runline. It looks like the racers of central Indiana will have a new destination this season! First tone, Sept. 18th.

Good luck everyone!

:thumbsup:

New Location

From my conversation with Burke, the new location will be a big improvement. I won't spill the beans but all the racers should like the new atmosphere. Big bonus it is on the ground floor.

Hey Guys,
There is also going to be a meating between all the carpet tracks in Indiana about a State utilization of class so you will be able to run a class at any track.Gerry Pullum, Butch , Burky and the guys from Fort Wayne will all be there. I don't know when or where but talk to the guys and they will let you know. This class utilization also may help the turnouts at the local tracks, as you know the turnouts were very low last winter.

Jon :)

I would suggest:

4-cell stock pan
4-cell 19t pan
4-cell mod pan
6-cell stock touring (tricky part is saying foam or rubber)
6-cell stock truck (either wenner dude rubber tires or foam tires)
6-cell stock buggy/ gearbox foam
Busch or spec pan I forget what you guys call it.
Legends with the real Legends rules. Only exception I can see is allowing different pinions so you don't have to have a ton of tires around or different sizes.

What does everyone else think?

I almost think that the classes is one of the problems. I can remember a few times at Summit last winter that there was 12 heats and 8 different classes. I know that most sya if there are 3 of soemthing we will run it but then each week there appears to be 3 new cars for there own class. Maybe we can try and fit those cars in better to a set line up and give them a couple of races to make there cars better fit that particular class.

1/12th Mod & 19turn are the only additions (besides novice!). As for the touring cars, it would seem to make more sense to run foams as the vast majority of other tracks in neighboring states run foam tires.

I can't believe I forgot about 12th. I just added one to my fleet too. :thumbsup:

why is it that the track owners of the surrounding tracks want to get together. i thought the triple crown series was going to happen last year. instead summitt decided to do the whole thing there? now that newcastle will have a bigger track, and it's closer to indy the other tracks want to work together? i don't think any tracks have worked together in indy. i think this is a thing where some other track is scared of loosing people because of newcastle. don't get me wrong i'm super happy for new castle. i can't wait to run on the new track. but i think this little meeting will turn out to be a dud. just my 2 cents. i haven't seen it work yet.

Paul,

You haven't seen it work yet because a meeting to create consistent class rules has never happened in IN. I think the most recent example of this might be a bit before your time. The example of which I'm speaking about is HobbyTown's 'Sportsmen' and New Castle's 'Busch' cars.

As for why the tracks want to get together, wait until there is another dirt oval of any note in IN. You'll want to get together with them too... ;)
