Re: Kansas City Region RallyCross #2 6/17/2017

OMRSCCA members take notice. This site is a pretty big catch, and it's only an hour from Springfield. Lucas Oil Speedway does circle track racing, off road truck racing, drag boats, and more. The fact that they're interested in having the SCCA there is a boon. Having a permanent dirt racing facility...

MO-D/Doniphan from highway 59 all the way past Crowder and the National Guard entrance next door is currently closed. No way to even access the site without one of these:

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #2 4/30/2017 At Crowder College

Word from the OMR board is that the 4/30/2017 Solo will be postponed. Discussions on an alternative or makeup date are pending. Flooding was the main concern. We can handle a little rain an autocross, but the possibility of drainage problems at the site was raised by Crowder. Another round of heavy ...

Re: 2017 Area SCCA Schedule

OMR announced its Solo schedule before the OKC MiDiv date was known. The rest of the MiDiv schedule was tentative and on the radar, but OKC became known and official last. I'm not in a position to remark on behalf of the OMR board, but I do know that all of the MiDiv Solo weekends are individual poi...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

The new printer should make it pretty easy to tape work assignments to the side of the trailer. I think that would help people a lot. And no need to pass crayons between registration and work assignment stations. It could be fruit, adult novelties, car parts, etc. Team ATF filter could be on red pap...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

According to Dave Whitworth, who sold us our FarmTek hardware, using the live.axti.me option is better when we make the leap to offering live timing for competitors. By offering competitors timing through a WiFi connection, he experienced additional lag. Also, concerning the lags we had on Sunday: A...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

Good Great system with tons of potential. Very easy learning curve once connected, and I'm excited to see where we can go with live timing. The divorced car queuer and cone counter was a great idea, especially with the excellent pace of launching cars yesterday. We delivered on giving a lot of driv...

Re: MiDiv Solo Event #1 Topeka HPT 4/21-23

In April, Heartland Park Topeka will host a RallyCross National Challenge, Track Night in America, and a MiDiv Solo weekend. Over a few weeks, you could drive the same car on their rally area, road course, and autocross pad, and still have a free weekend at the end of the month to hit the OMR region...

Re: Solo performance street tire FAQ

Falken has an updated RT615K+, and Tire Rack has a $100 prepaid card offer when buying a set of four through April 2017.
