Fuel?...I'm not sure yet. It will probably be bring your own QSAC legal fuel........ Also, You must be a current QSAC member to compete at this event.

I haven't thought about Pre Entries much. .............. I'm not sure we need it, Why??........So far I have over 20 racers committed (Verbally & Email) to this event. We're hoping for a lot more!!!

Hi Sonny,


I'm not sure what the pavement set up is..? LOL I have never raced a Sprint on pavement (yet).

I think its fairly close though, Pipchocks ran with us, and he said he only changed one or two springs. I run like 16 & 18 # springs on the fronts, and 12 & 10 in the rears.

BRP Tires, the Street Treads work good, all four corners, and the brand new block pattern tires hook up great too. Some guys run the ribbed fronts. I'm running about 1/2' rear stagger.

Put a 16/78 on and come on down!

Are you going to race with us? It would be great to have you!!

Scott at best it would be a maybe right now. I have a new GN but thinking about ordering a Sprinter also. I guess I could probably talk to Rick about running his car.

My other problem is May is pretty busy for me with all the USAC short track events and Indy stuff going on. Just looks like your race will be a lot of fun.

I've got it marked on the calender so will see.

This is the original track in Pa. It is located near Pittsburg on the property of famed sprintcar driver Tim Schaffer. The other Pa. track is located north of Allentown.

Scott is there going to be anytime before May we can come out & setup to the track? Being new I could use the track time. Check with Tim see what he says.

A few things: 1). There is no electric at the track. If you have a genarator bring it. 2).There is no camping at the track. No over night stay @ Shaffer Speedway, Everyone must leave the property at days end. 3). You MUST be a current QSAC Member to race.

So, for all you campers / RV's the good thing is there is a really nice camp ground / state park about 8 to 10 miles away:
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/StateParks/parks/raccooncreek.aspx

Plz check with the park EARLY to make sure they can accommodate your needs.

This race is starting to get BIG!!
