Ok, main event sponsors are finalized and we have a driver for each one. Things to remember if you're coming to the event-

1. The only traction compound allowed on the carpet is SXT 3.0. We'll have bottles at the event if you don't have any. The price will be $6/bottle. This is at cost, so if you need a bottle this is a cheap as you're going to find it.

2. F1 guys- rubber tires. Don't act surprised the morning of the event. It's been stated multiple times already.

3. Main event guys- bodies have to be trimmed at the lower trim line. The tailgate area must remain intact on the body. The rear spoiler must be used and must be between 1-2" tall - no more, no less. There are trim lines on the spolier that show the 1" and 2" marks.

4. We will be starting each race on time. When one race is racing, the drivers from the next heat need to be ready to go. The computer will be set to start each race no more than 4 minutes after the previous race ends. As soon as your race is over, put up your car, and come right back out to turn marshal. We need as much help as possible.

5. The track will need to be converted from road course to oval each round. We ask that everyone try and pitch in to make this happen as quickly as possible. The CRC ClikTrak that we're using makes this easier, but we still need all hands on deck to carry away the track sections.

6. Entry fee for the support classes is $5/class. Entry fee for main event class is $10.

Kane as acquired 30 tables with 2 chairs at each table, so you shouldn't have to bring a pit table. The building is large enough that we're going to try and put the trailers indoors, and run any generators outside. Some of us will be showing up at 6am, but I recommend getting there no later than 8am so that you can get setup in time for the first round of heats at 9am. Again, we're on a strict schedule, so everyone will need to be ready to go when their race is up.

1035 Cody Road North
Mobile, AL 36608

Entrance is on Zeigler Blvd, though. From Hobbytown, head north on Schillinger's Rd and turn right at the second red light onto Zeigler. Keep going and the fairgrounds will be on the left. Can't miss it.
