The schedules are not yet firmed up and published on the websites but there will be CAPS races in Muncie, IN on May 26 & 27, 2012 and August 25 & 26, 2012 as well as the NATS in July.
There will be a CAPS race in Cincinnati on June 2 & 3, 2012.
There will be CAPS races in Bloomington, IL in late June and late September, exact dates need to be confirmed by the SIRS club.
There will be 424 - Q500, 426 - Q500 and 422 - Q40 at the 3 CAPS races in Muncie and Cincinnati. I am not sure if Tom will run EF1 in Cincinnati. Jay will run 424 and 426 at Bloomington.
There will be a practice day on Friday before all of the CAPS races and there will be guys there who will be glad to help.
I recommend you start in 424 with a Viper and a TT Pro .40 if you like ARFs. If you want to build there are plenty of good kits available. Check out the kits page on www.q500424.com
