I have never raced in a big national event before so I have a couple questions. I won't be able to get to the track until 5pm on Friday. Is that enough time for me to get through tech inspection and then make my pass for True Street at 6pm? Also will I have an assigned pit spot? I have no trailer so how will I reserve a spot?


Sorry if these seem like stupid questions, just never raced at a big event before.

If you get there at 5pm chances are slim that you will make a pass at 6pm, not impossible, but if there is alot of TS that come in on Friday later to tech it could be a while for you to get thru. TS has a different tech in process than the heads up classes so ask at the gate when you enter where TS tech is.

You will not have an assigned pit spot, typically they hold an area for TS racers to pit together. alot of TS racer do not have a trailer and just park in the TS pit area. you can ask Jeff Conolly (TS tech director) to help you out when you go thru tech, Jeff's a pretty cool guy and will help you out with any questions or concerns you may have. Good luck this weekend!

I don't know if it is worth it for me to even show up on Friday then. It would save me $25 in entry fee. Will they be doing tech Saturday morning?

You need to page down a little there Bob. I clarified it lower on the same page, but here to make things simple:

Friday: True Street \ Hot Rod Drags (Index) Time Trial Session
6:00 pm (begins)


Saturday: True Street \ Hot Rod Drags (Index) Time Trial Sessions 2 & 3 Noon & 4:00 pm

Sunday: True Street Time Trial Session 4
11:15 am

True Street Eliminations
4:00 pm


All that said, I would call Jeff at 714-460-3813 Today or tomorrow between 3PM and 7PM EST to check in about teching in Saturday (which I don't think will be a problem). If you have any problems you can either reach me at the office today 714-444-2426 or PM me and I'll answer.

Thanks,
Aaron

Alright thanks for the help. I might show up on Friday anyway just to get tech out of the way and possibly have a chance to make a pass. If not I'll at least get to watch some of the heads up classes qualifying.

Think you need to point everyone to the FSC website with event schedule. bit confusing to read on that other page as to me it still reads 3 & 7 pm even if it's bolded

it should look like this
Gates Open: 8:00 am
Test & Tune 9:00 am – 1:00pm
NMRA/NMCA Qualifying Rd. 1 & 2 1:00 pm & 5:00 pm
Hot Rod Drags (Heads-Up) Qualifying Rd. 1 & 2 3:00 pm & 7:00pm
True Street \ Hot Rod Drags (Index) Time Trial Session 6:00pm
Exhibitions 9:55 pm
Secure Track 10:00 pm

Try editing you original post

Eh, hate that you can't edit here. What's throwing it off is the lack of a space. I only highlighted "True Street" but it added the "AM" or "PM" in front when the time is actually following it. Let's try this again:

and in your post 3 and 5 you have 8:00am Test and Tune, which is how most people are going to read it. So who's hitting the bottle early!:confused:

And you can edit posts on here!:rolleyes:
