Get ready for a busy and exciting Fall Season-the best yet!!! Were working very hard so you all can come out and Play Hard!!! See you all at the last Summer Series Points Race on August 12th
Understand in gas racing where this originates from-I think-you have a CHOICE!!! YOu can, as the winner take the Bump-up and forfeit your win-thus giving your trophy to second, and second to third and third to fourth. Its only fair!! If you dont take the Bump-up-you keep the trophy and the next Main runs with 9-guys-not 10!! Its not fair that you get to keep the trophy and get a shot at another trophy!!!
The logic of course being that if you need to bump from the D to the A-why would you want a D-Main trophy when you deserved a A-Main trophy!!!
AT the 1/8th On-Road NAts-Aaron bumped from the C to the B and was on his way to bumping from the B to the A-when misfortune hit with a fobbled pitstop!!!
Ray: Are we really doin' bump-ups at the Classic? Are you trying to kill me??!??! I have to get accustomed to J-lap, and deal with bump-ups? DEAR LORD! Of course with bump-ups I might be able to get into the C!
Do you need me to send in an entry form, or do you want me to e-mail you my info?
I'm trying to figure out how I can wrangle my way outta work early on the 12th to come play with you guys, and re-acquaint myself with J-LAP prior to the impending festivities. When are you guys starting up on Sundays again?
I wasn't sure how the Bumpups worked! That sounds great to me. Also, we may want to try the bump ups in some of our races. Just to get acustom to how they work, unless you or Jimmy and Arron have it down to a science at MOR Car.
It would be interesting to see how logistically it will work with the number of classes given.

I am very happy to announce that the NORCAR Halloween Race is now a USTC Race. Because of this change in event status, we had to make IMPORTANT changes that everyne should be aware!!! NOw-when reading this-dont get alarmed if youve already sent your entry forms in-just send Aaron an e-mail or call him and tell him the changes you want to see.
The new entry form should be available online in a day. If you cannot wait-then e-mail me and I'll shoot it to you in MS Word.
The biggest and most important change is that there will now be a Masters 12th scale class.
Also-we have reconfigured the schedule. Friday is now Open Practice from 10am till 6pm and Controlled (Personal Transponder) practice from 6pm till 10pm.
Saturday is now Open practice, Controlled practice followed by 3 rounds of Qualifying.
Sunday is last chance qualifying and the Mains to follow.
READ the new flyer very carefully and e-mail me with any questions.
So essentially the race remains the same-only that is now the first USTC race of the year!!
