I know it is early to start this post but guys, if you haven't done this race, you are MISSING OUT!!! The Roval, at night in Sin City!!! It is FAST, FUN and actually great for all speed cars. I have had low HP guys say "I'm not fast enough" but they are the ones that keep winning. Trust me guys, if you haven't run on a high bank track, you are missing out and this is your one chance this year in the West region.

 

The complaint was "VEGAS in August, ARE YOU CRAZY!!!" Well, I have moved it to May so that excuse is OUT THE WINDOW!!!

So, ask your questions and I am sure your fellow chumps that have raced here will tell you ALL about it!!!

 

Come to Vegas and Live the ChumpLife at the "NOT as hot 13" May 13th and 14th. REGISTER TODAY!!!

 

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call or text me at 702.403.6443

We have won it the last 2 years... IN A MIATA!  stock 1.8L 120HP (if coolant temps are perfect).  The infield is a ton of fun, technical and smooth!  The Oval in the darkness is awesome and limit braking from 120mph (faster if not in a miata) into the infield separates the men from the boys.

 

I HIGHLY recommend this race!  We will be signing up today!

Hi Ho a derry-o

@Pee Wee if you don't go to COTA, you need to do this race in the BMW.

You know all the Miata guys are cheaters :-)

 

Sounds like a fun race just move it closer to Iowa and we could come.

Good luck to you all and you all just try to beat the Miata!

I just realized that this race is the same weekend as COTA (why does COTA only have 30 teams signed up so far?).

 

It looks like the LVMS race was moved up a weekend from the original schedule.

 

I hope that this doesn't take too many teams away from the race...

They are no longer the same weekend... Bill @FastCars, can you chime in?

I think thats the case at least, I am not sure.  Still, Bill should talk to this

It actually is the same as COTA now, it was back one week later but the track had a conflict and moving Vegas up a week made for a better schedule for us. There are 2 MAJOR events the original weekend so offsite tech and registration are no longer necessary. We will have tech at the track!

As far as on the same weekend as COTA, last year we only had a few teams from the West travel to COTA so hopefully it won't hurt our count.

 

If the west will travel to COTA, they can save the travel time and $800 and race the Roval!!! I am NOT trying to compete with COTA, (NOT fair for COTA! LOL!!!)

 

Anyway, Vegas on the Roval in MAY!!! Come and get it!!!

Hey Bill, Are you planning on doing any kind of a tow credit for this race again?

Yes I am. $50 for 250-499, 100 for 500-749 and 150 for 750 and up! These are calculated from the team captains address to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Send me your google maps link after you pay your deposit to verify and assign the credit.

OK, I'm in Silverton, OR 950 miles one-way.

I'll check with the team and see what they think.

So what day will Tech / Registration be? Can we tow up on Saturday and still be able to get tech'ed and registered, since the race doesn't start until 7PM?

 

Still working on team members and logistics. If Jackson still has some Rivals left, then that will help in getting us ready for this event.

You should be able to get Hankook RS4's by then if that tickles your fancy!

Get your Rival from them quick.  And don't count on the computer being correct.  I ordered 8 Rival from them because their computer said they had them.  Then heard from them 4 weeks later that they didn't have my size left. They were friendly and apologetic and refunded me the $.  Thankfully I wasn't counting on the tires for a race very soon.

I just wouldn't trust their system in a pinch again.

That helps, It will be a two day tow for me so it would be a lot of vacation time to get there Friday.

One of my racers is in.  Just need one more. (and permission from the boss/wife)

If anyone ever needs drivers, I have a solid pool of guys often looking for seats.  Let me know if you need a trusted guy to rent to.

Not sure guys who are used to paying Miata rates could afford my tire hungry and fuel thirsty Mustang.  What do you charge per hour of seat time? (including registration fee)

The Flyin' Hawaiians & 2 White Guys will be signing up for this race next week.  We need more people to sign up for this race so it doesn't get cancelled.  Remember the early payment deadline is March the 12th. I'd hate to see anyone miss out on their chance to see the Flyin' Hawaiians spank the Miata PI guys.  Let the trash talking begin.

Bait.... TAKEN!!!  

 

I find this comment interesting though, because if I recall, you guys were too scared to show up the last two years....   Just assuming that there is NO WAY that we could win that again for the Hat Trick?!?!!?  We have some things we are looking to do before vegas, we will see if they get finished but I am hoping for good things!

 

Keith!  @KDJones2000  Itll be great to race together again!!!  been too long!
