    Now this is just a rough draft...there are some things that I would like to change around (like adding stuff to Saturday) but in general this is how it's looking


    8 am Gates open

    9 am Tech and lanes open
    Test and Tune will run throughout the entire day (a lane will be assigned)

    10 am 1st round qualifying -- BCO - THS - TSO - TSM - Q16

    11 am 1st round Gamblers race (round robin until finished)

    11:30 2nd round qualifying -- BCO - THS - TSO - TSM - Q16

    12:30 1st round Big Boat Challenge (round robin until finished)

    1 pm Final Qualifiying -- BCO - THS - TSO - TSM - Q16

    1:30 1st round Charity Race (round robin until finished) **all cars must be teched**

    2:30 1st round Finish Line Furious Four qualifying

    3 pm 1st round BCO eliminations

    3:30 2nd round Finish Line Furious Four qualifying

    4 pm 2nd round BCO eliminations

    5 pm 1st round of Finish Line Furious Four eliminations

    5 pm 3rd round BCO eliminations (come back to lanes immediately after you win as we will be sending cars down the track as they are ready)

    6 pm Final round Finish Line Furious Four eliminations

    end of the program as soon as all races are completed!


    8 am Gates open

    9-12 Car show

    9-12 Open Test and Tune (will continue throughout the day between rounds)

    noon Drivers meeting at the base of the tower

    12:30 THS, TSO, TSM 1st round qualifying

    12:30 Q16 1st round qualifying

    1:30 Second/Final round qualifying THS, TSO, TSM, Q16

    2pm All classes will start eliminations in the following order: Q16, THS, TSO, TSM, Bracket 2 (13.50 and slower) Bracket 1 (13.49 and faster)

    Second round will be at 3 and cars will be given significant cool down time with test and tune ran inbetween rounds.

    All times are subject to change due to weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances.

    This is what I got so far...I think we are going to need some fillers for Saturday and maybe a couple for Friday...like a big wheel race that I talked about before and so other kind of things to keep the people entertained inbetween classes and such.

    first they told us to go to the tech shed
    the tech shed said we had to go to the tent and get a tech card
    the tent said you don't need a card for the charity race
    just go and get teched ..............
    tech shed refused to tech without a tech card
    after driving all over the park twice I parked and went to get my money back
    then they said we will tech the cars at the starting line...........
    too late as I was done...............

    That's most unfortunate. My philosophy is "better to have it, and not need it, than to need it and not have it". Thus when I got my Explorer teched for the charity race, I made sure to get a tech card beforehand. :Smarty:

    I will also try to carry some extra tech cards with me this year. Every year the charity race has been messed up with tech for some reason. I will also talk to the guys at National Trails to see if we can have a tech in the staging lanes for this class only.
