We had a great turnout yesterday. Just under 70 entires. Had a few guys from Norcal and SoCal Come race.  They had a blast!  We have a lot of fast guys racing here in the Fresno area.  If you guys come race. Bring your A-Game! 

We we will switch back to day racing after the summer series is complete. Our last scheduled night race is the last weekend in September. October should be the start of day racing again.

also a reminder. Starting October 1st we will be switching to AMB / Mylaps timing system.

We have a decent F1 class.
We get an average of 7 cars show on points days.
Any F1 racers out there come join us this is a great F1 track.
There is a non points race this weekend but there should be a few of us out there.

I had lots of FUN. The HEAT was nuts, but Im glad it cooled off at night.
Traction went up once the Sun went down. Lighting was good, but it could be improved.
I was glad I painted my body with bright colors. People were very friendly & the completion was pretty good. Big thanks to Jim Bishop who helped me out & Carlos for the iLap loaners. We have other racers in the Bay area asking & planning to take the trip to your tracks.
This was my first run in Nitro for 15 years & I had a BLAST!! Thanks for the great hospitality & awesome track.

I wont be there this weekend, but I will give my 3 transponders to the Hobbytown Crew to let you guys borrow..  I have a couple other guys  that will hopefully have loaners available. Talk to the race director (should be Cody) once you guys get there.

The track will be prepped and Sprayed.

Nick,
4 Nitro guys are coming up on Saturday who don't have any iLap transponders.
Can we borrow some from you guys? Will the track be prepped & spayed?

Thx-Gonzo.

We had a good race Saturday. We had roughly 65 entries. This was the first night race of the summer series.

Hobbytown has been adding to their light collection and the lighting was very good compared to last summer series.

I ran Sorex 36s all night. Traction was very good and consistent, even as the sun went down, the traction didn't get out of control.

Curbing Update: They have installed 1 more curb since last race. So far 3 permanent cubs are installed,  4 more to go.

MYLAPS/AMB update:  The plan is still to upgrade to MYLAPS/AMB after this summer series. It was discussed in short at the drivers meeting again.

Hopefully some of you guys can make it out for the next one

We will be using the NEW USGT weight of 1380g and Gravity RC Spec tires

VTA weight.. 1450g *CORRECTION* Driver/interior required

We are still on I-laps, We will try to have as many loaner transponder for you out of town guys as possible. I personally have 2-3 i can lend out. Try to give me a heads up if you're planning on coming, I will coordinate with other to make sure we have enough loaners available.

after this summer series, we will be switching to Mylaps/AMB
