    27L is an all main format.
    1 round qual 30 secs

    Yep, and the next big turn out will be OMO, for the same reasons. Time to really rethink the class structures.

    Great turnout 40+ entries. Tech taking longer than normal.

    This thread is to provide coverage of the race today guys. Let's keep it positive. There's racers laughing and having fun. Guys that only see each other once a yr are catching up.

    It's wall to wall slot cars in here. I wish every racer could experience 1 day at the nats. You'd be hooked.

    Shontel has been struggling this week with getting pics to upload to the OWH Gallery. For some reason they are not always uploading. Tony Moore had the same problems... I have not been able to figure it out, because when I try it, it seems to work for me.

    I don't want Shontel to waste any more of her time with the OWH gallery, so she will continue to post them on her Photobucket album, and post pics or thumbnails here. I will try to copy them and post them on the OWH Gallery as I can.

    Click on any of her thumbnail pics and it will link you to the larger pics on Photobucket - then you can browse through them there.

    When you are there at the Nats, with all the hustle bustle, racing, visiting, mingling... posting the results and pics can be a lot harder then you might think while sitting at home on the PC. After having done the posting, and now sitting at home watching - it really makes you appreciate it!

    Even though seeing the pics and results is the next best thing to being there... as Shontel pointed out - it is virtually impossible to convey the excitement & fun of being "At The Nats".

    Back to the races....

    Edit - WOW - now I get to eat my words! Shontel managed to get all the pics to upload on the OWH Gallery now!

    THANK YOU SHONTEL!!!

    Actually thought that was a positive comment, the racers are showing the direction that wings can and should take. 48 racers is terrific. I bet there will be an equally large turnout for OMO.

    I think a lot of the demand for real time information is that everyone has gotten used to having a webcam at all major races (I know we did!). I don't think that the comments are necessarily intended as negative towards Shontel and her dedication as we appreciate what she is doing; it's just unfortunate that a webcam is not in place to satisfy the need for real time data that we're all accustomed to. We also really appreciate all the folks that are posting to FaceBook that are at the race, the more forms of communication, the better!!! :0)

    Good luck Racers, we all wish we could be there with you to cheer you on... just know there's lots of us in cyberspace wishing you all the best!!!!
