There were 0 decos at the icebreaker,  hopefully they show up for the national race.

we want to run are lt AA, but if the track is to big it is to hard to run that high of rpm for a long time. have AA ever ran there?

I'm on the fence about coming but would really like too.  I'll run an AA if we go; either light or heavy as long as there's enough of them.  I've never seen the track but I don't think it's bigger than Mini Indy is it?

Not as big as Whiteland. Larger than Mini Indy but flat and sweeping corners so its not as fast. Real smooth asphalt.

It is not even close to Whiteland.  We ran Heavy WF there a couple of weeks ago and ran a 4.91 gear. It will be a great place to run a AA car.

We for one will be there for sure and will be running our AA car.

The track is very fun to race on. It will require a good setup and a driver to be successful at Nashville.

The McPherson brothers are planning on running hvy AA, so there's 2.  As far as AA's blowing like crazy at Whiteland last year, they were both mine.  The first was a broken crank on the flywheel side probably due to a poor gear choice, the second was our untested back-up motor which got hot & stuck the piston -- my fault.
