2016 PANTHER NATIONALS OFFICIAL DATE/PRICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Dates and prices for lodging for 2016 Panther Nationals are CONFIRMED and SET!

Dates are June 3-5, 2016.

Here's the pricing structure:
1 night stay in standard room 68.00
2 nights stay in standard room 60.00 each night
3 or more nights stay in standard room 55.00 each night.

This is at the Outback Resort, right on the strip, same place as usual! For a preliminary, I have 10 rooms blocked, and I can add more with a phone call.

I will be calling the drag strip at some point soon, and setting that up as well. I would like to know if everyone would prefer to do call-out grudge matches, just standard time trials, or if we want to do a bracket set-up. I am thinking if we do a bracket set up, we'll set up a buy-in (something dirt cheap, five or ten bucks a head), and we can do winner take all, or top two divvy the pot, or whatever. In case you aren't familiar with bracket racing, it takes the power of the car OUT of the equation, it is completely a driver's race. So, a Marauder can line up against a box Vic, and if the Vic's driver is more consistent, he'll win the race!

Tell me what you think!

RE: Dates and prices SET for 2016!
Sounds like a good idea. At first, the bracket setup sounded totally unfair before you mentioned the overall skill of the driver being the determining factor towards the winner.

I don't normally cite Wikipedia as a credible source, however, in this case, they have a pretty decent article on bracket racing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bracket_racing

It lays out the basics, dialing in, breaking out, redlighting, etc.

Of course, it isn't a given yet, just an idea I am floating.

RE: Dates and prices SET for 2016!
I am almost 100% positive I will be in attendance (i'll say 99% so that incase something comes up). True question is do I bring the vic, the SRT-10, or my hopefully charger.... decisions decisions..... I just need to convince dad to buy this trailer and let me put a gooseneck on the diesel and bring all 3! XD
