Keep in mind Ban One, if you come to Metro , you will have to join USAC another 250.00 in additional to your QMA at Cumming, even for one race.  Another bad move for Cumming to stay QMA, oh well ,

No matter what you do or say, it is still all for the kids. I do understand the situation with the Fair Grounds. It does dictate your schedule and how you have to control what you can and can not do as for the schedule. I know some of us at MAQMA will come and race at NGQMA when the schedules do not conflict. I just wish the best for the driver's and hope all of them have fun and stay safe.

Thanks,
Mike

$250 to join Metro Atlanta?  Wow that is a lot.

Well said Mike...it is all about the kids.  It does suck too that the two tracks will be different sanctioning bodies because I know AJ missed some of the kids he didn't see on a weekly basis because they didn't come over to race USAC last year.  He only saw them when we went to race at New Smyrna.

Dual charter sounds like a good idea. Although when Tampa was converting to USAC, the Garcia's wanted to Charter both, but QMA balked at the idea. Once Tampa signed with USAC then QMA came back and wanted Tampa to charter both, but it was to late due to insurance costs. Charter both and they will come!!!

Well Scott, I just heard great news that we both were hoping for. You may know or not but your August 6th-8th east coast is going to be the USAC next generation race. That at least gives us four here in the South. Run the Grand Nationals at Indy and you have your 5. All I need to do now is get my driver off my back and give him something to drive. I do not know if it is $250.00 to join our club or not but if you are USAC then you can race her anytime.

Thanks,
Mike

That's great news. But how would that work? It was originally scheduled for the East Coast Challenge. Will we get another date for that series? or are we counting this race for both series?

Indy doesn't count as the East Coast Challenge series, but does count as one of the 5 required for the Naitonal Points as far as I know.

As far as if they have a National in Tampa in early August, not sure how that would work...we would have to wait until they make announcements on that.

Just for FYI , the Huntsville club adopted a spec tire last night. It will be Hoosier A35 or A40 right sides. I'm sure Nashville will pass the same thing. If that is the case the region series will be a spec tire also. Grin

It will be interesting to see how the gray area phrase in the QMA rule "readily available" works out.

Hard to have a spec tire when that single phrase opens up a big can of worms. LMAO!

I think it will work. Each track just needs to make sure they have a good reliable vendor with a good stock. I am the vendor for Georgia for Hoosier and I keep a real good supply. I still have some Vega's left if anyone needs some for their local events that still run them. See ya in NC.

Thanks,
Mike

I am a Hoosier vendor in TN and am keeping good supply on hand.  I have not heard of the results of our vote yet, but quite a few people at our track are trying the Hoosiers.  If anyone comes to Music City to race and needs to buy tires, I will have them available. 

Thanks.
