Anyone have any info on E-Town??? Last year this time I think I already had my hotel reserved in Vegas and was getting the only six months left jitters! It would also be nice to put in for vacation, does it still look like July 7-9?? Any info would be great,nothing like being a little prepared. Will the track be ready? Will ICCC happen again? Will those guys from GRAIL win another year??Do these pants make my but look too big?? Thankss for reading and hope to hear somethin! Dave H.

Someone, please correct me if this info is wrong, but the last I heard "on the grapevine" (last week) was a deal still isn't done for the hotel. And time IS getting short!

LISST is the club, and I am reasonably sure the dates are July 7-9.

Give a shout to Big Kahuna and he should be able to give you the full info....

Rumor has it that some members of the ISSCA BOD wants to move the NATs to Pocono Raceway, because the road course at ETown isn't availible.

What makes an ISSCA National an ISSCA National?

Its the combination of five events 1) Car Show 2) Drag Race 3) Auto Cross 4) Road Course and 5) Sound Off plus a bonus event Push Drags, take any one event away and you don’t have a National. The BoD is charged by the by – laws Article XI Section 1 sub a sub 1: "Provide an event location with appropriate show and racing venues", since the precedent has been set these past two years leaving out any of the five events would require that the event is NOT an ISSCA National but an ISSCA Sanctioned event. The folks who suggested E- Town knew there was no Road Course at the time of their proposal they had been lead to believe however the Road Course was going to be finished. It turns out that by the time the BoD had traveled to E-Town to check out the facilities the Road Course folks were less than encouraging about finishing the track in time. Scratch one event. Second concern is the Drag Races at all previous ISSCA events we have had full complete use of the Drag Race strip we didn’t have to share it with any other events or car clubs, the E- Town event requires ISSCA to share the track. Scratch a second event. So you see the E-Town proposal won’t suffice for an ISSCA NATIONAL event. Can you imagine the folks traveling from say Oklahoma or Texas or Utah to E-Town to find out that the National wasn’t a National (that is it was missing a Road Course and they had to share the Drag Strip), talk about pissing some people off, that would be a greater disaster than realizing [even at this late date] that the event might need to be moved.
Thus the BoD is doing there very best to find an alternative that will meet the established criteria for an ISSCA NATIONAL and with the help of the folks up in the area I’m confident they will do just that. After all that is the job of the Board of Directors of ISSCA (see Article XI of the ISSCA By-Laws).
