    word has it that the folks at BPR are taking the other two tracks out to make more pit space.
    there is talk about putting up a tent in the parking lot for Owl to do motor building and testing so innocent bystanders won't be injured by flying shrapnel and toxic fumes.......

    Seems to me it is like pulling teeth to get any info on this race! Doesn't seem to be any effort put into promoting this event...

    Maybe because it costs alot and there is no payback at all. That kept some of us from coming

    No payback? Seems to me the entry fees go to the raceway. Costs nothing to post a complete schedule with fees for every class, hotel info, where to get rental cars, etc. Last time I looked OWH and Slot Blog did not charge for this sort of thing. Races like this should go to raceways that actually put some effort behind major events. Just my observations. I have no dog in this fight and I hope the event is successful.

    When I went to the worlds in 2011 in Pilsen, I don't remember the entry fees being particularly high. I don't remember what the payout was (if any). However, any payout couldn't beat the feeling of being a "World Champion" or even racing with the caliber of racers that show up to the worlds. As far as rentals, hotels, etc., that information can be easily found using Google. We stayed at a Motel 6 near the track in Buena Park and rented a car from Enterprise in Buena Park (much cheaper than renting from the airport).
