Tacoma R/C Raceway has figured out a way to have the 2020-2021 Northwest Indoor Series. After long conversations with everyone involved, we have determined to host a two day event. Saturday, November 7th will offer 2WD Stock Buggy, 4WD 13.5T Buggy, Stadium Truck 13.5T Stock, and 4WD Truggy. Sunday, November 8th will offer 2WD Modified Buggy, 4WD Modified Buggy, 40+ 2WD Modified Buggy, and 2WD 17.5T Pro Stock Buggy. Each day will be limited to 35 people and you must run at least 2 classes. You can only signup for one day, if room permits 24 hours prior to the event a person can run both days.
TRCR will start taking entries for NIS on Saturday, October 31st at 9:00am by phone call only. There was a lot of different ideas about how to do this fairly, so with the current signup program that has been working great, we decided to stick with the same format.
Another question that has come up is the parental support for younger racers. We have thought about the age cutoff and decided that anyone under the age of 16 can be accompanied by one adult, given the fact that they must be driven to the track and are from the same household.
The same rules are in effect about the conduct of the racer's regarding wearing their masks and social distancing. You must always wear a mask when moving around the facility, this includes the hobby shop, driver's stand, track, and so on. The hobby shop is still limited to only 3 people at one time.
Track change will be this week on Thursday October 29th. This should give everyone adequate time to get practice in on the new layout. During round #1, the track will open at 7:00am and races start at 8:00am both Saturday and Sunday. There will be one hour of open controlled practice each day.
We will have last years, 2019-2020 NIS trophies available for pickup that weekend since we were unable to have a series finale last April.
We are so grateful to everyone that has worked with us in these crazy times. COVID-19 has changed the way we conduct business and we hope that everyone will continue to make the best of this terrible situation.
