As it's the beginning of April, I thought I'd update the thread and give it a bump. 

 

Registration has been open a couple of months and we're seeing trends that warrant your attention.  There are several reasons to sign up now….delaying may effect a variety of factors for your weekend.

 

èIn the run to gain the best slots in the schedule, SRF/SRF3 has 15, SM has 13 and Prod/GTL has 11.  Big Bore (GT1, AS, etc.) has nine and DOT (STU, STL, etc.) has eight.  Remember, the first two class groupings with 20 entries get to be the third and fourth run groups.  Not first out of the chute and done before lunch….sleep in and go home early.  C'mon SM folks.....let's get going and capture the top spot.

 

è50% of the paved paddock spots, 40% of the garages and 30% of the RV spaces are already spoken for.  Sign up now to get the parking option you want.

 

èThe "Early Bird" discount expires on 6/30 so make sure to enter before that date.  It's $475 now and will increase to $525.  Don't forget, we don't charge your credit cards until 8/14.  Enter now, pay later.

 

So sign up ASAP to ensure you get the discounted price, garage or paddock spot you want and help your run group get a better time slot in the schedule.

A quick update on this event.......
 
Only a few entries in the last couple of weeks but our race season has started up here and things will start to move faster in the next few weeks.  A couple of dates to be aware of.....
 
6/30 is when the "Early Bird" discount expires for the entry fee.  Right now its $475.  On 7/1 it will go up to $525.
8/7 is the deadline for entering the race to be eligible for a free entry.  You MUST enter via MSR to be eligible (no hand processed entries).
8/14 is when we run credit cards so enter now, pay later.  Send a check to avoid the credit card fee ($25)
 
In the battle amongst race groups to get the best time slots, we have the following data:
 
SRF/SRF3 = 16
SM = 14
Prod = 11, Big Bore = 11
DOT = 9
Small F = 5
Wings & Things = 5
 
50% of the paved paddock spots, 40% of the garages and 30% of the RV spaces are already spoken for.  Sign up now to get the parking option you want.
 
So sign up ASAP to ensure you get the discounted price, garage or paddock spot you want and help your run group get a better time slot in the schedule.

One more post about paddock spaces.  As of this morning, we only have 5 semi spots left.  I know the race is three months away, but there's only so much paddock space.  So the bigger teams better get signed up soon or they'll be parked in BFE.  I saw how many Advanced Autosports brought to last year's Cat Nat (15 or more?).  East Street, Planet Miata and other teams need to get their drivers signed up ASAP to insure they'll get semi spaces.  Team owners can contact me with their plans and we can work together to keep everyone happy.  But I can't make arrangements for folks who aren't signed up.  I've been burned by that before (honest, I'll be there....).

 

This track is as close to Daytona in speed and drafting as you'll get.  You want to practice for Daytona?  Enter this event and play with some top shelf drivers so you can get the car dialed in for the Runoffs.  In 2013 we had two fantastic races and I expect much more of the same this time around.

Another quick update on this event.  6/30 is rapidly approaching and that's the date when our "Early Bird" discounted, entry fee window will close.  Sign up on MSR (see link below) before 11:59p on 6/30 and your entry fee will be $475.  After that it's $525.  Remember, we're using the 'deferred payment' option in MSR this year (and from now on).  That means you can enter now and we won't charge your credit card until 8/14.  Send us a check before 8/14 and you'll save the $25 credit card fee.

40% of the garages, 30% of the RV spots and 50% of the paved paddock spots are already spoken for.....sign up now to insure you get the paddock options you want.
 
One last thing......no race group has crossed the 20 entry threshold to claim the coveted 3rd spot in the schedule.  SRF/SRF3 leads the way with 19, SM is next at 14 and heavy metal is next with 13.  C'mon folks.....there's still time to bump up those entries and snag the best time slot in the schedule.  If not group gets to 20 by 6/30, I'll make up the schedule on my own.  Please save me the hassle and sign up now.
 
Contact me if you have any questions.

A couple of things to reiterate:
 
1.  There are only a few days left in the "early bird" discounted pricing for the event.  On or before 6/30 the price is $475.  After that it goes up $50 to $525.  
     Go to http://wmr-scca.motorsportreg.com/ to register.
 
2.  Two, the schedule has been set for the weekend.  The race groups are now assigned to positions in the schedule.  As of few days ago, SRF/SRF3 had claimed the much sought after 3rd position in the schedule.  So here are the assignments:
 
1.  FA, FB, FC, FE, FM, P1, P2
2.  AS, GT1, GT2, GT3, T1
3.  SRF/SRF3
4.  SM
5.  EP, FP, HP, GTL
6.  BSec, STL, STU, T2, T3, T4
7.  F5, FF, FV
 
3.  As I have mentioned before, we will not bill you credit cards until 8/14.  if you send us a check before then, not only will your card NOT be billed, you'll save the $25 credit card fee.
 
4.  Anyone signing up before 8/7 will be eligible for a free entry ($475).
 
5.  This is the last NorCon Major of the season and will have a banquet and awards ceremony.  Folks who know WMR know that our caterer is THE BEST.  We paid MIS extra for the privilege of allowing us to bring in our own caterer.  You will not be disappointed.  We know how to put on a good spread Saturday night.....and it's free with your entry.
 
6.  Last, but not least, this is the ONLY track that mimics Daytona so use the weekend to dial in your car for the Runoffs.  We have a Friday test day available and spots are filling up fast.
 
We're really looking forward to having a great weekend with awesome speed, unbelievable food and great fields with a lot of competition.  So sign up soon and join the fun.

Well the last conference Majors race before our event (Cat National at RA) has occurred so there's no excuse for not entering this one now.  The "early bird" $50 price break window has closed so the entry fee is $525 (pay by check and save the $25 credit card fee).  But act quickly as we have had 70% of our paved paddock spots, 40% of our garages and 40% of our RV spaces reserved already.  With all the various paddock options available, we have some permutation of parking that will serve your needs.  In addition, the deadline for eligibility for the free entry drawing is 8/7.
 
WMR works very hard at putting on a great event for our customers (drivers and workers) and folks who have attended out events know it.  We put on the best Saturday night dinner you'll ever have.  Come on out and see for yourself and you will not be dissappointed.  
 
Use the link below to enter the event and please do not hesitate to contact me (hdf3.wtr80@gmail.com) with any questions you may have.

All Majors races require two majors stickers (one on each side)....and, yes, we'll have them available for you at tech (and I think registration will have them too).

Deadline for the for entering to be eligible for the free entry for this event is tomorrow (8/7 at 11:59p). 

There are only six (6) paved spaces left that aren't for semi sized rigs. Sign up soon or you'll be on the grass or ground asphalt (the stuff that gets peeled up before a road gets paved). You've been warned. icon_evil.gif 

We still have a couple dozen RV spots and a hand full of garages available.

If you're running at PIRC this weekend and are not sure about whether you'd like to run MIS the following weekend, enter the MIS event before MSR online registration closes tomorrow.  If you need to withdraw, we will waive the late withdraw fee.  We'd rather you enter now and withdraw later than vice versa (and incur a late registration penalty).

Dayle - I did not see mention of the Friday practice day times in the information on Motorsports Reg.  When do practice times begin on Friday?

 

Thanks,

Great event alot of fun with all the friends and great competition!

 

Huge congrats for his FIRST MAJORS WIN to Michael  "Dutch" NOVAK!!!!!!!!

 

Congrats Kicera on national points and a win!

 

Big thank you to Derek Beckett my CREW for putting together two front running cars the #99 and #98 both fought for podiums with the #98 coming out on top of the two cars!

 

Thanks to the Stewards for listening and rebuilding both the first and last corners for us!  

 

While tech was done nobody seems to know what was really teched my #98 car was up on stands in the tech shed for about an hour with tech people crawling all over and under it, but it was like a top secret mission to find something that just wasn't there...

 

Tech has teeth when the competitors know what is being checked for because we all talk about it and it trickles down to others racing!

 

I have to give the RESTARD award to RESTARD TOMMY TODARO 20th to 6th on the Restart before the green flag comes out!  Move of the race!!!  :nonono:  :panic:  :prayer:  :thumbsup:

 

Congrats to Justin Hille for the North Conference championship, if I'm gonna finish second to someone in conference points it was fitting that it's you!  You drove great all year, I am gonna need to up my game to challenge you!

 

Thanks to East Street for two really good cars, and great support all year, thanks to ATLSpeedwerks for coaching and support, Thanks to Advanced for all their support this year!  And thanks to all those that I race with, you guys are what makes this class so special!

In Tommy's defense the green lights were lit in turn four long before we got to the S/F line. I thought about following him but didn't want to f-up the leader's race.

 

I second your congrats to Mike - super nice guy.

Watching Tommy on the restart was absolutely hilarious. Talking to him afterwards was funny as well. He was having so much fun until he got to turn 1 and then found him self in a mix of cars that put him way over his talent level.

Unfortunate his brother Frank had a bad weekend braking 2 diff housings.

Piku also had a tough weekend as well. His steering hub failed and the strewing wheel fell off going onto the oval. He hit had into the wall.

I have to admit, i am glad that the 2015 Majors season is coming to an End. I suspect that my season experience can only go up from here in 2016. I think I may have a record of busting two diff housings in the same weekend. Sadly i did not finish a race this past weekend.

 

A Big congrats to my Friend Justin, while i expect he is disappointed in not winning the National point title, you had a fantastic season, winning the conference and doing so well. I would trade you seasons right now. Also congrats to Tyler, on the national point title, he had to earn it and he did. 

 

Now as for my Brother, as others have said, the lights on the banking were flashing yellow on the restart then when to green before they dropped the green flag, back where he was starting you could not see the start stand and all he saw was yellow to green, They did not penalize him as they Messed that up. If you have not met Tommy you might not get it, but as he is progressing down the field and sees something is wrong he just says F it i am going for it.

 

 

 

We did get a good laugh out of it at his expense.

The paddock was fun this weekend. The drama was low and the BS was deep. From Todd "the Goat" Lamb, to restart Tommy Todaro, to 8 quart Kyle, we all had a good time.

 

Congrats to all
