    I was expecting more Comp Racers for the first event in Belle Rose.
    The last time I spoke to Craig he said there was only 20 cars so far.
    I was figuring at least 30.
    Maybe its related to the bad weather across the midwest.

    What does everyone else think?

    I'd say weather is a big part but who knows.

    Track is good, your house is in a bad location.

    Only 20 cars?! Damn! Well, I guess that's 3 more than last year :D
    Hopefully some people just don't check this forum and haven't pre-entered.

    Looking forward to it and hope everyone has a safe race!

    Weather definitely may play a part along with people hurting for money due to Covid fallout. Personally, I'd love nothing more than to be able to race for the kind of $ that you have put up, but logistically it just isn't possible to make 5 of the 6 races 1000+ miles away. I'm sure there are some in the same boat.

    Pretty awesome what you are doing for the class and your division though, hope you guys get a big turnout!

    We decided to claim D4 this year. Due to the fact the D5 scheduled sucked, I think I was going claim D4 anyways. The only big issue I have was claiming 5 out of 6 races. With Houston and Bella Rose 1000 miles from me I was going skip both of those but with the rules Roger set up, I needed to chose one of those races with no way to do both. Dallas Double is doable, and, for me, Tulsa and Noble are the same distance as Denver and Brainerd. With all the snow and cold we had up north it was a huge struggle to dig the trailer out and get everything ready. We are loaded up and ready to go, plan on leaving Wed afternoon. Hopefully the trip goes smoothly as I do not feel ready at all.
