Glen Helen has a race already scheduled for that weekend and we could jump on the band wagon with them. I have contacted Bob Beyer and told him about what we are trying to do with this event and a super series in 2010 that would include a short course venue.
As soon as I get MORE info I will post it up. Like to get a car count for this. I see no reason why we couldnt get 20-30 cars. the track isnt hard on equipment, and is a great place to race where everyone can watch all the action.
the best set up is to leave it alone, except for the rear tires. I used to run low profile tires in the rear and groove them up. All the other stuff was the same. A shorter desert tire would work as well, you need to be able to "slide" the car through the turns and not hook and roll. A smaller tank and a steering brake, and tear offs, cause it gets muddy. and bring a hose !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
