    why? because i won't have a king track yet.

    this is the Nats, not the flat track nats. to appeal to the greatest number of racers you need to put classes on both flat and banked tracks.

    What flat track would be raced on? I see your looking to build a new one. If it will be new will it be complete before the 2015 nats?

    Also since will this be a hotel race will there be a fully stocked counter that takes credit cards?

    Which hotel will you choose? Will it be close to a airport? Is it an international airport?

    i'm not sure why it would matter if the flat track was done before the 2015 nats when i am bidding on the 2016 nats.
    it will be a new flat track, and it will be the one used to the ISRA worlds in oct 2016 as well.

    fully stocked counter, trust me more parts than you can imagine
    credit cards of course.
    the hotel is about 16 miles from O'hare international airport. many people have stayed there before, it has a great rate and is quite nice.

    hope i answered all your questions

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    The voting takes place during the Nats by participating racers . Racers should know what tracks will be raced on.

    Im kinda disappointed that In your proposal you included pictures of a track that isn't going to be raced on.

    You likely have my vote mostly due to geography. I'd just like to know what I'm voting for.

    So.... Both tracks, the Hillclimb and the "new" flat track are both going to be set up in a hotel? Not your shop? Just want to make sure I read that right. And if so, that hotel is the Holiday Inn you mention in the proposal?

    Roger... I'm assuming that hotel rate is a special rate you've arranged? They are almost double that if you tried to book the room now. I ask because, hotel costs are a big part of attending any race, especially one as long as the Nats. The difference between $65 a night and $110 a night, over 8-10 days, is a lot.

    The hotel is a GREAT hotel he is looking at. Stayed there many nights and they have always went out of their way to make sure you are taking care of!!! Let alone the bar on the main floor has some of the best food!!!

    Nice work Roger!!!

    Three great proposals this year from three great owners. I wish them all the best!

    I've never had the chance to race at a hotel race, but from what I've been told from other slot and R/C racers that have ran in them, they are the best. Nothing could be more convenient and the need for a car rental is gone unless you plan to do things other than race.

    I've had the good fortune of being a regular customer of Roger since he bought my local raceway, Fox Speedway. He has always provided the best racing experience possible on the best tracks built by Gary Gerding and maintained by Gary when they have needed work. With his international racing experience and contacts, he has brought through the doors some of the best racers in the world to race with us, not just once, but multiple times. An unbelievable experience to meet and race with all those guys that you only read about.

    He always has the latest must haves, most of the time before we even knew it was a must have. LOL His stock level has always been second to none. I wouldn't expect anything less from him in his new venture. Besides, if anyone has plans to run the 2016 ISRA Worlds, what better track and location to have the 2016 Nats!

    If Roger were to get this race, there would likely be many of the European ISRA racers coming to the race as a warm-up for the October 2016 ISRA Worlds on the same track.

    That is a great hotel to stay at and is a great price and to have the race at the hotel would be great... go back to the room for a break what a great way to do it! Schedule a retro race before or after would be a cool idea!?
