    Crandon 2021 Wrap / COR 2021 Season Wrap

    34 170's and 21 karts, this wouldn't work. One thing to also look at, classix and F4x4 were replaced by pro am and 570. These class already have 29 cars combined, versus the 14 (6 of these only race crandon) combined that they lost. 570 will probably have a 50% or larger growth for next year...

    Gas Pro2

    My guess would be that GAS doesn't have the marketability that champ does, to get sponsor backing for Pro2's. While champ is young, their tracks have proven attendance #'s and set sponsors that trickle down to racers. The schedule was set well to not create any conflicts between series, GAS...

    It is now the year 2021...

    I'm assuming so, Hentges bought the entire program. Hauler, (2) trucks, everything. He is looking to sell the extra Pro 2, it was Jerry Edgerton's truck. I also heard a rumor that the Crandon deal fell thru. When I was at his shop, Jamey said he won't be racing due to a back injury...

    News Crandon International Waves Green Flag For 2020 Races

    Every champ race from this season is right here, no hoops needed. I prefer this over TV any day. Races aren't shortened to fit in a time block, and they have every class that raced, not just pros. One of my favorite things this year, is that the production quality is consistent throughout the...

    Crandon Wrap

    Crandon set a interesting record this weekend, largest spectated race in the usa. Biggest dissapointment was Crandon hiring some hack announcer instead of Local mic master Cheyne (@handmethemic) . Too much silence during the sunday races. Champ did well with keeping on schedule, but they are...

    On Race Car Numbers

    First shortcourse truck i bought was already 569, moved classes and went to 869, since 803 was already taken(3 is my lucky #, and always been a Dale Sr fan). Bought a different car, already #699, so stuck with it. Moved classes again and went to 199, was going to have 169 for my new car, but...

    Need Input on desert Race Helmets

    There are websites that rent out safety equipment, helmets, suits, neck restraints, etc. If you're going to buy a 2015, wait until the 2020's come out, 2015 will all go on discount. Don't buy a 2010. Pretty sure the helmets can't be recertified, design requirements change.

    Radio channel licenses

    I'm a rugged dealer, and started doing radio programming this past season for shortcourse races. I'm still fresh to this, but here's what I've learned so far. The main issue is that there isn't a "Frequency Master list" for all teams out there, so programming a new channel is a guessing game...

    Ivan Stewart Modern motors Chenowth 1000 replica build

    Sweet build so far, also very interesting to hear about the cars history. I personally switch fuel cell foam out after 2 years, also run a fuel filter that dissassembles so you can check for foam bits. My customers and I have had no issues with RJS foam part # 30152.

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    Adding a large payout to Pro4 is only a short term bandaid. In the past, Prolite had a great payout that would bring 20-30 trucks to every race. BUT, once the payout went away, so did the majority of racers. You need to either drastically reduce the Pro 4 cost, or cancel the class. Sometimes...

    How to get into short course racing

    1. Find a local race series. 2. talk to teams and find one you like. 3. Volunteer on their crew and learn. 4. Get a good job 5. Buy a used racecar or build you own. Buying used is generally much cheaper. Best class to get into: One you can afford with no sponsorship.

    Suggestions needed for spectating Mint 400

    I emailed the Mint about shuttle service a couple days ago and haven't gotten a response yet. We tend to drink a lot on vacation, so driving a rental may not be an option lol. Should we plan on bringing chairs or anything else with?

    Suggestions needed for spectating Mint 400

    I'll be attending the mint with my wife, and am looking for advice on the best way to spectate. We'll be staying at Golden nugget, and plan on attending the fremont st events. Are the VIP passes on sunday worth it? I was thinking about going to Jean on Sat., and Primm on Sunday. Do I need to...

    RG Big Race at Glen Hellen!!!

    Caught some of the event on Facebook this weekend, looked like an awesome layout. Hopefully they do a better job getting in more shortcourse racers. Pro buggy and prolite weren't added to the schedule until Nov. 6th, gotta give teams more time than that...
