    We're getting close to the last major SCRRA race of the year, The Boola Bash, coming up next month on Saturday October 26th and Sunday the 27th.  As usual the 3 HR Nascar Enduro will be run on Saturday with F1 to follow about an hour after the end of the enduro. Can Am will be run on Sunday and all races will be on the BPR KIng track.   Nascar Enduro tech will begin at 9 AM sharp on Saturday as we hope to get the race started no later than 9:30 as the F1 race follows the Enduro and we need to keep things moving along smartly.  The SCRRA wishes to thank all the racers for helping to keep things running smoothly over the years and on time!   :good:

 

  Same basic Nascar format as last year with Concours determining the lane choice for the top 3 and the computer picking the rest. 12 minutes on each lane, 2 times through 8 lanes so the race is technically 3 hours and 12 minutes long.  Lane changes will again be 1 minute and 15 seconds and working on the cars will be allowed during the change over.

 

   We will again attempt to keep track calls to an absolute minimum. If several cars are off on the floor but are easily within reach of marshalls there will be NO track call. However if one car is buried in a totally inaccessible spot, a track call will obviously be necessary.  Under the bridge will also be a track call.  We've never had any issues in the past with excessive track calls and it seems when things get going and everyone settles in there are very few offs.

 

  A quick rundown of the simple NASCAR rules. Basically, the cars are Retro Coupes but with a 4 1/2" wheelbase and this will be checked at tech. .812 rear tires with .050 clearance and .750 fronts with .015 clearance and a maximum width of 3 1/8".   This year along with the hard to find Electric Dreams Mercury Cyclone we will be allowing several new bodies, the JK Products B125B Chevy and the B126B Ford. The JK Mercury Cyclone B137B and the O/S Mercury Cyclone 653 will also be allowed and all bodies must be .010. The maximum rear body height with spoiler included is 1 9/16" and spoilers can be as wide as the body.  All cars must have interiors that fully connect the windows and no part of the chassis may be seen when viewed from above.  All cars must have 3D drivers with shoulders and arms and the drivers head must be no lower than the windows and must be seen when viewed from the side.

 

   As usual, teams can be made up of 3, 4 or 5 drivers and there is no rule governing driving time or driving order and teams will be left to determine this as they see fit.

 

   If the Retro Pro racers can organize enough people for a race we can certainly add it to the schedule. The usual RP slot was Friday evening with tech beginning at about 6PM.

 

  As usual you can sign up for the Enduro here on Slotblog and Debbie will also have a sign up sheet going at BPR.  More to follow here ASAP concerning the Boola and remember that in November we're going to be running the exact same Nascar stock cars in another Enduro which will involve all the BPR tracks!  An announcement about this will be made shortly!........ :good:
