to both ask questions and help them as they had some questions about travel and neither one of them even have the courtesy to pm me back.

for someone who gets paid by the number of people they have entered at a event he sure doesnt try to hard to get them there.

I had no problem getting responses from him when I emailed. Pm'ing was another story. I think his phone number is on the site too. You could try calling or texting (if it's a cell #). Most of his email responses were via his phone.

Try it

Just doing what needs done for the sport. My volunteer time making the park work is worth the effort I put into it.

Not sure if it's posted on here, but it looks like you can pre run the course on Friday from 1-4 pm.

Just can't go over 35mph (no race speed)

And you have to sign a waiver prior to entering the course.

Here's the link on that info:

I wonder what's involved in the qualifying for the Ultra 4 buggies? -there's only a half hour allotted for the qualifying.

it's usually a one lap sprint/drag race for best times, only one rig on the course at a time.

For the Ultra4 races they usually set up a small 2-3 minute loop that has 1 or 2 mild obstacles and a little bit of go fast section to separate the cars. I would imagine something similar.
