    No mixing of nitro and electric during "trophy" races Ray.I will mix nitro buggy and truggy if all racers in that class agree and there is at least 6 to make a class.
    Weekly club type racing a different story .

    Ray same thing ,because this race is a trophy race and it list certain classes for this event.Just so you know i will be running all other race classes that day,that are not listed on the triple crown list..That includes nitros.Again need six to make a class.

    Hey Sean, I get not mixing nitro and electrics because of how the classes have been listed that way for a while now for the series, but for future trophy races could you at least consider mixing? Outdoor track, and open class to me means any power plant you want. Nitro or electric. Nitro has no advantage, and probably more likely to break, flame out, or like some of us, run out of gas before the race is over! LOL. Thanks.

    The problem with mixing classes during trophy races is there are more racers against than for it.That is why don't mix .In the future races like my Money Madness Race i have always offered nitro classes.Last years event i think only one or two show up.I under stand there are racers who want to run nitro.But they are the minority now and to throw them in classes just so they can run isn't right either.Considering most them have electrics.
    I will say it again ,i will run nitro if enough show up to make there own class.Even this Sunday they can run but they just won't be in the Triple Crown series,it will be just a regular "club" race for them.
    Larry my open class is separated electric and nitro .With each one with there own rules .
    I have to say it again ,there are racers who will not run with nitros at all.So separating is the way to go.
    If i had the room ,i would build a separate 1/8th /monster truck track if could .Until that time i have to do the way i am doing it.

    I cant count how many times I have heard guys say I should have brought it but, didnt think there was going to be enough to run it. We wonder why there are never enough. If they would run regardless theres a good chance it would grow IMO.

    Why dont people like running with nitros?

    Ray
    I heard that a lot of times too.Even with certain electric classes ,scb would be example.

    You asked why some racers won't run with nitro's ,i think its there personal preference but one comment that comes up a lot , is they consider nitro driver "erratic drivers or careless "again this is there opinion ,not mine.Also for some reason ,some racers do not like to corner marshal for them either.The other reason which was mentioned in the post before this,they can be a pain in the but on race day and cause delays because of there possible erratic behavior .Which can effect everyone's day.
    These are comments that i have heard from other racers,not all racers will agree.

    Weather still looks good for tomorrow,race#1 of the Mainely Motorsports/Award Champs triple crown series.
    Racing starts at 10am .registration closes at 9:30am.Please be ready when you get here.I will not be able to help anyone with repairs in the morning.
    Again have your transponder number written down when you come in to register.
    That track is dry ,if some of the racers who get here early could help wet the the track down ,that would be great.We are going to need to keep up on watering it as the day goes on.

    See everyone tomorrow .....
