Guys this race has eclipsed our wildest dreams almost 400 boats and 100 drivers. It looks like two things are going to have to happen..1st we will have to add another day to NITRO RACING   Wed we will start racing,if this does NOT fit your schedule I/we understand. We can issue you a refund                                                                                     Item 2 Special classes being Thunderboat,Gas Scale,RTR and King of the Lake will run Sunday am. In order to get those of you out of town early we will race 3 rounds and a top 6 fourth round final .  All of this will back up open water to Monday at noon uncontrolled and Tuesday controlled open water til 5 Pm......Questions or concerns contact myself at saymikey@gmail.com  or 812/760/8036 Understand I work a 8-5 weekday job and cant get to the phone during that time........THANKS for your understanding  lets have the best dam Nitro race in a long time......

The format calls for 4 rounds of racing and top 6 in each class will race round 5  for national championship  points carry start to finish.

I have a question if its a Nitro Nats why are there gas classes anyway ? If you dont have those gas classes wont there be plenty of time to run the nitro classes. I dont see the gas nats clubs adding nitro to there race for us Just my 2 cents

 Here is your answer, Gas runs on SUNDAY after the nitro classes are finished. Many volunteers run gas boats,this is my way to return the favor of helping put this event on. The gass or special classes will NOT run til all National Champ Classes are completed. Sorry for any confusion Special classes were never going to run at the  same time.

That makes since.  Is the banquet Saturday night then? So the Nitro people can leave sun morning or are we going to have to wait till the gas boats run to do the trophies presentation ?   I am just trying to figure out the days off I need from work.
