Calling all Sportsman Racers !!! Dust off those Legends, Losi 1/18 Sliders, Losi 1/18 Late Models and SK cars, and join us for some great SPORTSMAN Racing. Our focus will be on FUN, Fair Competition, and Lots of Racing. We will strive to bring a "national event" experience to the weekly sportsman racer. Our race format will not be the usual 4 minutes and your done.....instead you will experience single car qualifying, heat races, consolation races, last chance qualifiers and 100 + lap features !!!! We will crown the champion in each class based on total points earned through the 4 race series. Aloing with trophies for the top five Drivers in each class, any Driver that enters all four races will be eligible for great prizes to be awarded at the finale on December 13th 2009. We will also have special "hard luck" driver's awards at the end of each race. We will host the race at Walt's Hobby in Syracuse, NY. The spotlight will be turned on for the racers who are the foundation of this sport. Our goal is to not only attract future racers to our sport but convince some great veterans to come out of retirement and have some fun the way it used to be !!! Please see the attached flyer for dates and times.
