Jimmy, from the talk I am hearing ALREADY all three of those classes will be pretty good, as will 19T. There is a group of 8 or 10 Legends that are in this area and from what I understand they will be coming too. Go to: http://www.thunderroadrc.com/ for the flyer and the entry form.

Touring Cars

Jimmy; we won't be running Touring Cars on the oval. Bottom line is time. We simply can't pack any more racing into the time available; and I want every one to be able to get on the road before it gets *too* late. We may run touring cars on the road course during our weekly races; and on some of our bigger racing events, later on.

If I can make it happen, there will be a new road course track at TR next year; and it will be big enough to get a 1:10 scale car wound out pretty well. If it tells you anything, I own a couple of TC's. Thanks; Ernie P. :cool:

Just as a reminder, guys; Thunder Road is now closed until we have completed the rehab. We hope to be open for business by November 6th, possibly sooner; and I'll keep you posted. Thanks for all your past support, and we look forward to seeing all of you at Thunder Road in November; practicing and getting your setups tuned for the 2004 Virginia Oval Championships on Decenber 4th. Thanks; Ernie P.

Paypal accepted!

Okay, guys; I have arranged for a Verified Paypal Account for Thunder Road. You can now pay for your advance entry via Paypal; by logging into paypal.com, and making payment to "[email protected]". Why enter in advance? Because pit positions will be assigned as entries are received. IOW, the permanent, and newly refurbished, pit positions will be assigned as entries are received. If you choose to enter on the day, you may wind up pitting in a temporary pit position. So enter early, if you want to be assured of a better pit position. Thanks; Ernie P. :cool:

We've got a new small hobby shop here in Jacksonville, Florida. Legends racing would work great if they could get kits and parts.I sent another e-mail last night.

2004 Virginia Oval Championships Concours

Guys; just to get the word out, there will be a Concours event at the 2004 Virginia Oval Championships on December 4th, at Thunder Road RC Speedway, in Gordonsville, VA. Rules follow:

(1) Concours will be judged prior to the first heat.

(2) Concours entries will be limited to those cars and bodies actually participating in the race. Any entry in Concours which fails to compete will be disqualified. Any damage resulting from practice will be ignored.

(3) All Classes will be judged together. Plaques will be presented to the winner in each Category.

(4) Cars will be judged in three Categories:
(A) Best NASCAR Replica. The entry should be an exact replice of a given current or past NASCAR entry. Photos or representations of the actual NASCAR entry are allowed and encouraged.
(B) Best in Appearance. The entry will be judged solely on appearance; and need not be a representation of an actual past or current NASCAR entry; but must be a NASCAR Theme.
(C) Racers Choice. The entry will be judged by the voice or hand vote of the assembled throng; with no discernable criteria beyond whatever seems to motivate the masses.

(5) All decisions of the judge are final; with no protest allowed.

(6) Ernie P. will be, or will appoint, the sole judge; and may/may not seek counsel from any person or resource available.

Thanks; Ernie P. :cool:

Fast B Mains

Looking at the racers who have committed to making The 2004 Virginia Oval Championships race at Thunder Road on December 4th, it occurs to me we're going to have some fast "B" Mains. All these hot shoes can't fit in the "A". At least it will be fun to watch! Thanks; Ernie P. :cool:

Legends

Thunder Road will open on Friday at 09:00; and close when the last racer goes home. A number of racers have asked us to stay open late, so they can practice for The 2004 Virginia Oval Championships; so that's what we'll do.

Saturday, we'll open at 08:00. Entries will close at 2:00 P.M.; Concours will be at 2:30; and the racing will start at 3:00.

After 12:00, we reserve the right to regulate practice time by class; to make sure someone practicing for 19-turn Open doesn't have to share the track with a Stock Class Mini-T. We'll play it by ear.

Entries have been steady; and we're looking forward to hosting the fastest group of racers on the East Coast. Drive safely on the way, guys. Thanks; Ernie P. :cool:
