Hiya Bud, please don't take this the wrong way but why are there various threads on forums saying there is no large scale off road in the US?
You event looks great and long may they continue but maybe it would be possible to for groups of people like yourselves across the US to join ROAR and maybe start a full national series? Maybe have a north, east, west and southern series so people don't have to travel so far and maybe 2 meetings a year as "National largescale off road championshps".
There is already talk of a largescale off road World championships just as they do for large scale on road racing (which was held in California in 2003) so imagine the kudos an event like this would bring to the US RC scene.

Best of luck with your racing.

Mike

There is plenty of Off Road Racing in the USA. All over teh USA, just not in every state.

It's odd how people say there isn't any though. Like I say it would be good to see a nation wide series.

Best of luck, Mike

The US is a big country and it seems majority of the organized events lean to the West Coast, IMO...

The UK is a little smaller and the furthest I have to travel is a 700 mile round trip but thats doubled for some. As my geography is so cr4p, what sort of distances are you guys doing to get to races?

I need links, man...still a big country. It also helps if they didn't schedule the dates so close (in fact I remember two events being scheduled on the same date this year)

I travel 5 hours by car to get to the California races. Some of the East Coast guys travel 10 hours to get to those races.
