Debating trying a rental later in the season (when its not 100 every damn day). Pricing seems a tad more expensive than I remember. Downside to a rental, is we can only do it Mon-Fri, noon-5pm. As I'm not looking to make money off anyone for this, here is their current pricing model:


I was looking at either 30 or 45 max. You guys can do the math.

If there is interest in this, we can start taking a hard look at some dates (maybe in September?). I realize we could do it cheaper just by showing up on a Thursday night or a random T&T day, but this could be a lot of fun as well.

Private Rentals are fun, but with these Tiered rentals it gets a bit harder. If you got 15 to buy in, thats fine, but as soon as the 16th shows up, now you got another $500 to lay down. You would almost have to close the event to people who don't buy in by a certain date so you can figure the math better.

That said, I am interested.

Well, it wouldnt just be a free for all where anyone who wants to show up, shows up. If I said 30 max, thats what it would be. Prepay, closed to spectators (unless they can come watch for free, which I doubt, but I can always figure that out if needed), etc.

I’d be in, would have to launch soft as I’m afraid if I hook I’ll be buying new axels lol.
Pretty sure spectators are allowed but have to pay.

I can find out depending on interest over the next few weeks.

What day of the week would you all prefer? I would think Friday makes the most sense.

If we have to be out by 5pm, I don't think it'll be a very long night for everyone..?

Definitely interested. I would run my car if it’s ready. If not, I could run my truck in the dad150 class.
