Fuquay 500 v3.0 Jan 31st and Feb 1st 2020

Version 3.0 of the Fuquay 500!!!

Friday Jan 31st:
2:00 PM to 8:00 PM - Setup, Early Registration, Open Practice

Saturday Feb 1st:
9 AM to 10 AM - Open Practice & Registration
9:50 AM - Drivers Meeting, National Anthem, Words of Wisdom and prayer from Pastor if he’s available, and the official start your engines!
10 AM to Early Evening (wrap by about 6 pm ish) - RACE!!!!
***Awards and photos for Primary Classes immediately following each class!

RCP Track - Smooth Side
I-Laps Timing System
Multiple Classes including Euro Trucks!

One $10 ENTRY FEE covers all classes!

This is my “disclaimer” since this is the 3rd time running at this location and my 3rd time hosting a “large” event, we've had a pretty good run the first two races with very minimal technical issues, loopholes in the rules, classes people don’t like, differences in opinion on how the races are coordinated, etc. etc....but please bear with me if anything does come up and I’ll be more than happy to get help in any way I can, including constructive criticism. I just hope everyone has a good time racing and it’s enjoyable enough that we can continue having them.

More Information can be found in the google documents located here including the Race Flier and the Race Info with Rules and Specifications, let me know if you have any issues getting to the documents.

The exact classes may be changed as we get a better feel for who all might make it. I'll try to get something posted for a first draft of the classes in the coming weeks.

Let me know if you have any questions!

EDIT: added the classes document

So is it qualifiers and mains for three different classes? What are the classes? Is it 500 laps per class? I am missing something here??? That is not unusual for me! LOL Thanks and good luck with the race.

Hey Mike, sorry for my lack of clarity.....i guess when i did the first one last year i should have called it something different, if i called it like it is then it would be "Mini-z racing in Fuquay Varina" kind of boring, so i went with the Fuqauy 500.....kind of a play on Daytona 500, or Indy 500.....but to add to the confusion it's NOT a 500 lap race either...ugh why didn't i name it different, being a star wars fan i should have wen with the Imperial 500 then really confuse everyone LOL

So i haven't posted the classes yet, the last two races we did a mix of GT STock, GT/LM 70t, LM 50t, Euro Truck Stock, outlaw, etc...... all of them are kind of based on the local crowd since that's the biggest draw with a few tweaks to hopefully appeal to the out of towners. I've changed the classes a little between the first race and the second race, i'm hopefully going to get my thoughts together and post something by this weekend for the classes.....i'll post here and on the facebookie event site.

OH and for the "bigger classes" we'll probably just stick to a 2 minute qualifier, a single 5 minute heat, then a 5 minute main and we'll divide the field into A, B , C groups as needed depending on how many entries we have, with bump ups and downs based on the heat results to determine the main groups....hopefully that makes sense, i think it's similar to other races.

So look for more hopefully by this weekend.

CLASSES! i've had a number of people asking about classes, i understand the sense of urgency so people can prepare for the various classes, so here they are...they are basically the same as last time (partly due to time constraint), so if anyone has major heartburn of any particular class, or lack of class, or specifics in a class, whatever, provide a compelling argument for the change, addition, subtraction, whatever....i'm all ears, but for the most part this is what we'll shoot for so people can prep, we might shake it up a bit for the race after this one.

See the attachment in the first post for he classes.

Let me know if there are any questions!
