I'll be there but I don't have an Orca body.  Recently, when Marcus tried to order them from ERI, they didn't have any. 

 

Marcus has an Orca body for himself that he will race.  Last Friday he offered to let me try it but I didn't take the time, but this Friday I'll put it on my chassis and if it's a tenth faster than the other LMP bodies that I have then I probably won't enter the LMP race on Saturday.  I mean what's the point of entering the race only to have my you-know-what handed to me.

Dale, you can use the Orca body. I'm sure I'll use another body (Red Fox Acura) I already painted and the car is ready.

it would be nice if other Track owners confirm the name of their racers who will attend the race.
Is there anyone from Jacksonville or Holly Hill coming to the race?

I was just reading the 2019 rules.  Regarding the NASCAR 1/8" front bumper, I just checked a Titan body that I mounted last night, and depending on how you measure it, the front bumper could be ruled less than 1/8" and all I did was take off enough to barely remove the cutline.  

 

Actually, the forward most portion of the Titan front end looks like a diaplane and then the front bumper behind it and then the grill after the bumper.

 

Maybe the rule should be, "must have some turndown".

Bummer, Terry. I was wondering why I have not seen you this week.

 

Tracey was there last night. He will be racing on Saturday along with Ray Lee.

 

Considering these posts, it appears that we will be qualifying.

We just moved my Mom from the hospital to a rehab facility and are facing a few issues that still need to be addressed.  

 

Not sure Nathan knows that it's race weekend.
