    Only 7 cars pre-entered so far at Parker. BAP last year we had around 20 cars, this year there is only 6 pre-entered. I think there were only 4 cars at laughlin? Where's everyone at???? We had 33 cars at the Mint last year, now there is only 17 10 cars racing in the first 3 big races of the year!!

    I dunno about the other races, but the Parker numbers are nowhere near complete. Same thing happened last year. Everyone came out of the woodwork the two weeks after the pre-run.

    The F&L 10 car will be at Parker, we entered Saturday. I think a few others entered Saturday as well. The list on the site is from last Wednesday.

    HA HA!! I don't know about that, nice to see you coming out to some snore events though! BAP is hands down the most fun off-road race!

    I think you are right. It is tough these days. Hopefully the economy will pick back up by the time I get my 10 car built.

    ..was the day they let anything other than an air-cooled flat four not displacing more than 1650cc into it, IMHO. I liked it when it was a truly limited motor and unlimited suspension. Now it's unlimited costs with limited performance.

    We used to have multiple Class 10 heats at Riverside.

    My personal opinion and I like class 10 myself. But its a class that has let the cost of the motors get out of hand. The class 10 car is really a light weight class 1 car with a motor that probably cost more to buy and maintain for one season then a class 1 motor will. I think that is why we have not seen as many new 10 cars being built over the last year or so.

    Everyone is always saying that, but to build a real class one race motor, not a stock Ls whatever, is more than the most expensive ten motor. it definetly is not a cheap class but how many classes in off-road racing are "cheap" to the people racing that class?

    MORE entries are way down as well with only four cars signed up with little over a week left. Sign of the times and too many good races only a couple weeks apart.

    I think there will be close to 20 class 10 cars when all said and done. I know a guy with a little green car that will be flying around parker that weekend.
