We have been running 13.5 COT at easley under Tour rules, come join us some weekend.We tried to propose the TOUR package last season here at the Grove and it wasn't very well received at that time. That being said, oval racing had a terrible turn out this past season with hardly any Friday night runs and very limited Saturday oval turnout. So something needs to be done.
Our problem is that the regular racers like the breakout format and the traveling racers like the open format. Hard to change those set in their ways.
I would love to see TOUR adopted here, especially the truck, 17.5, and 13.5 classes. We tried 13.5 for a short while but it got boring with only 3-4 of us at any given time on the track. If anyone has any suggestions on how to kick start oval again at the Grove, I'm all ears!
I'm sure that Donnie at Carolina RC in Easley, SC would be down for some outdoor TOUR action! We just got the 13.5/COT class going there and the 10.5/1c will kick back up after the first of the year.we are working on the classes for outside racing now. I will have some info up soon. Just want to work out some details first.
