Really Pat? Just lay off it bud... We're all pretty much done with your 'kill the 99's regardless of the facts' messages. BOR-RING.

The cars are so equal this year, but in the dry @ Mid-O I'd give the 1.6 a teeny-tiny-miniscule advantage (only if prepped right for the conditions). But it's gonna rain which levels out the cars even more and spotlights the drivers with the biggest set of onions.




Yep and looking to improve a few spots over last year surely he will be.


John not bashing, whats your problem, I haven't been bashing the 1.6 v 99 this year, laying low on that subject. We have raced against both crowds, and if you had the 99 talent that runs scca I would be putting my 99 number higher. There are few 1.6's cars that can run there but most of these guys haven't seen them, and I doubt you haven't either.

And for all you away from Mid Oh, the big secret is to bring the thinnest worn out hardest set of RA1' you can find, Forget about a new set every race.

Pat :noidea:

We are less than a month away, and people want to book flights, as to not waste a bunch of extra time in Ohio after being gone a week already. I was very happy with the NASA Nationals product when I attended in 2008, but this absolutely needs improvement for the future.

I absolutely agree 100%

I'm fairly positive that this has to do with balancing having certain classes always having to wait to run on Sunday and the folks who Supersize into multiple classes. I don't feel the majority should be held-up by the few this impacts but I also understand the implication of locking down a schedule just to lock it down. It's really hard to make everyone happy all the time, NASA usually tries and sometimes misses. Regardless, your comments and those that have been emailed/messaged to me will be shared so this is not an issue going forward.

I'll be sending out an email in the coming days to those who have already registered with some info about contingencies, expectations and impound. But if anyone has questions about this years Nationals feel free to message me on this site or email me directly at: John@Weekend-Racer.com

"It takes luck, both with the weather and the setup at mid ohio." "whoever wins the event will be most deserving, it will take skill, very good car prep and some luck."

I would value these two things the most at this years event with all the extremely tight competition that will be had.
Predictions: Justin Hille, Alex Bolanos, and Adam Molaver.

sorry terry there are no more big wheel dealers left in US You might finD it in play it again sports

Satire is primarily a literary genre or form, although in practice it can also be found in the graphic and performing arts. In satire, vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement.[1] Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon.

Can some one bring me a case of "Sweet Water blue" Pale ale, they don't sell it here. Will trade with a case of Columbus Pale Ale. They do not sell it in Ohio

Lets get our priorities straight.
