yes.
i would like to pose some dumb questions. I am new to racing, and am curiuos about the schedule.
if you go to nasa website, they shoe "stinger" races - 2 sat, 1 sun.
1) how long are the races? 20 min?
2) how many other classes will share the track at the same time?
3) do you need to place high to advance to sunday, or are these just for points accumulation?

I'll try to answer all of these...

NASA races 3 groups; Thunder, Autobahn and Stinger. SM, and the new SSM, are in Stinger. They combined Stinger and Autobahn for next week due to low entries.

This year, they are starting a different schedule. There is practice, qual and a 20 minute race on Saturday. On Sunday, there is qual and a longer, 40 minute race.

The classes are listed on the schedule:

clicky

The actual number of entries can be seen here:

Everybody races all weekend.

I am not qualified to race yet, so I'll be down there doing HPDE.

yep, that's kinda my point.
the schedule is showing 9 different classes in one race. that's a lot of cars going a lot of different speeds. i guess there is enough room out there

Looks like you are on your own. I'd go but I thought I would let you start the season on a positive note.
