Thats a great idea about starting out with a gamblers race. I don't know if the lights are different or not at the 60' but I'm usually 2 hundreths faster there. I didn't race Norwalk at all last year so I can't comment on the prep there but I heard from someone that the prep they were using at the end of the year is for warm weather not cold weather. Is there such a thing as different VHT for different times of the year.

count me in...... my opinion is have a higher entry fee so the purse is bigger, nrp's purse is weak, i have no problem paying $ 100.00 for a shot at $ 1000.00

i talked to my buddy chris klink @ ulta-tech race cars in streetsboro,and he said he would be glad to try and work out a sponsorship deal if the class gets off the ground!

What is that $1,000 for winner and $600 for runner up that might attract some cars, so what would it cost to race $35 to the track and $100 for the gamblers this would be a 16 car field correct.

from the looks of the amount of people willing to respond or race 8.90 index you will barely get ten cars to show up! i bet if there was a 9.50 or 9.90 index you would get more response! i think there are alot of cars in the nines that are not willing to squeeze the car to make it an 8.90 car! im still going to try and push for the first gamblers index race there, if it dont work out than it dont work out!

You can count me in. But keep rules simple. Like must be street appearing, 3000 lbs. designate a tire size. Simple rules open it up to a lot of cars which is what everyone wants. This is not fastest car wins style racing. Should not need a lot rules. Like Viper Akron said, Keep it simple. Just my thouights.
