Is it just me or is this ZERO buzz about the race? Hardly see anything on social media and the only thing going is this thread. I would have expected much more since this is a new race for BITD. Good looking entry list too.

Its just as dead out here. Qualifying was so so on a short very straight course that took under 3 minutes to complete.

LOL. Hopefully it picks up tomorrow. I'm sure Robby Hendrickson will come in here and tell everyone they went to the wrong Laughlin. That will spice it up.
It definitely does not have the SNORE feel out here yet. Hopefully more people will be here tomorrow.

Watching the timing earlier it looked like class 1s all went before TTs. Is that the way they did it? No Dondel?

From my opinion, with the amount of entries the racing will be great in each of the heats. From a operational perspective, limited spectators makes for a easier day for most of us. We can focus on the racing.

The weather is a mess and at least to me is not optimal for most to enjoy this race. Today was hot and windy. Tomorrow is rain. And just hot on Saturday and Sunday. A month earlier weather wise would have been much better but there is only so much time in the calendar. We have a few changes for 2017 that we are going to try but nothing firm yet.

I think this race for all of us is our sleeper race in the schedule because there is so many unknowns with the first time for BITD here. It is the smallest race we do yet has more permits and red tape than any other race Casey works on. Plus new race course for the first time in many years.

People may not be talking about it today but I anticipate Monday it I'll have a lot of chat!

What are you talking about Pat? This is the pinnacle of the sport. lmao Rage had close to 400 entries by the way :D I wont comment on the very short qualify course. Lets just hope the whole race course is not a flat graded road.
