    Only if the box is occupying pit area space on a day the box owner is not racing. Provides active racers with pit area space priority. There is an outside covered area which is open to pit boxes, at all times. You can view this area on camera #4 off our website CCTV Link (homepage lower right side).

    So it's 20 a day just to have your box there and then add race entry on top of that? So what if I plug in a soldering iron...another fee?

    Ben,

    "All NATS Warm-Up races will incur a pit and track fee of $20 / day."
    "During the August 2016 NATS, racers will incur a fee of $20 / race entered."

    The $20 is a pit and track fee. An individual would pay this fee on the day he/she is racing.

    Yes, the race entry is a separate fee.

    If you desire track time and pit space on a day you are not scheduled to race, then the $20 pit and track fee applies. FYI - the normal SpeedZone daily unlimited track time charge is $25. The NATS are at a $20 per day rate.

    The note concerning the boxes being left in the facility, is to inform participants that if he/she leaves a box in the pit area, then a $20 fee per day will be charged.

    All the best, Rich 678-427-0017

    What is the lineup and days for each class during the Nats week? Thanks Bill
    Remember the lack of any credible evidence is proof the conspiracy is working!

    Yes, the "squiggles" have no adverse effect on any class of slot car. They may, in some cases, set the cars up for a slightly better corner entry.
    They do add a bit of character to the visual effect of the G3.

    All the best, Rich

    Bill, I knew that question was coming since that information is missing from the 1st post to this thread. I am coordinating with the USRA and our on site team to have that information posted, yet this week. I know it affects travel and attendance planning, so it is a priority to get it posted real soon.

    Thank you, Rich

    Yes, there are big sports events (primary and secondary age children) each and every week during the school summer break. They are actually year round, on the weekends. Dozens of soccer, baseball, softball, and lacrosse fields in Peachtree City; along with several swimming venues.
