Lot's of updates coming up over the next few weeks on Keep an eye there for news as well as your favorite forum.

Current Caravans/Convoys have been added for everyone to see: 2010 LX & BEYOND: THE CARAVANS

***If you or anybody you know is organizing a caravan let me know and we will be sure to add it. Many people have emailed me asking if there is a caravan in their area or rolling thru their area so once you start that thread you may be surprised at the number of folks that show up. There are non-forum LX & Beyond attendees that are waiting for the opportunity to be apart of the drive to LXNATS 2010.

***Hotel rooms are starting to fill-up so don't wait too long to reserve yours.

Confusion and Clarification of 2010 LX & Beyond Nationals Entry Fees

There appears to be some new folks attending the LX & BEYOND NATIONALS this year that have not attended in the past and some confusion on the cost of attending the event. I also have received messages and emails from individuals which may be fueling the confusion for others.

Last year the LX & Beyond Nationals had only 2 entry options for participating in the event and nothing has changed for 2010. Those two entries are: Car Show Entry and Drag Racing Entry. Due to the confusion caused by naming one “Car Show” entry, effective immediately we will be updating the name to “Regular Entry” to clarify it for everyone.

If you wish to park with the group, the vendors and the event then you will be required to pay the Regular Entry or the Race Entry Fee. If you would rather park in the parking lot with Regular Joe and Jen Admission then you have the option to pay the $10 spectator fees instead. (Spectators are not eligible for prizes, raffle items or awards) This is the agreement that we have with QUAKER CITY RACEWAY and they will be enforcing it as such at the gate. Don't forget that if you pay the Race Fee you are eligible to participate in both Race and Show events.

I am aware there was some confusion at the gate last year, mostly due to the fact it was their first time hosting our event versus they regular events and that will not happen this year. If you arrive in an “LX & Beyond” vehicle you will be asked for the appropriate fee.

For those of you that do want to participate in the Car Show portion of the event the judging classes have been adjusted for 2010 and will be posted soon and because of the overwhelmingly positive response from everyone THE F4 CHALLENGE TEAM will be returning as the official judges. Each section where your cars will be parked have been divided into "zones" and will be judged at designated times so it will allow you to mingle throughout the event and come back when you know its judging time for your zone which should alleviate the need to stand by your car all day or miss the opportunity to talk to vendors or see some racing. If there are any additional questions or concerns please feel free to give me a call or send me an email.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in July!!!

Only a few more to go and there will be more Canadians than Ohioans.....what?!?

....what's up Ohio? You should easily be the largest group in attendance.

....looks like Indiana is making a run to overtake Ohio too with 6 far Michigan and New York are battling for 4th place at 5 each

....where is Illinois, Pennsylvania and Kentucky? Only 1 each so far.

....happy to see our die-hard attendees from California, Arizona, Kansas and West Virginia

Its no surprise but Brilliant Black appears to be the #1 favorite among attendees.

....Inferno Red is making a respectable showing with 8 so far

....Bright Silver is not far behind with 6

....the high-impact colors (Hemi Orange, Plum Crazy, Sublime, Torred) are all battling for recognition in the middle of the pack, its too early to tell who will break away

The suprising statistics of the day:

....Chargers leading the way with 22

....Magnums are currently in 2nd place with 17, over the Challenger with only 11

....300/300C is at the back of the pack with only 3 and behind the Grand Cherokee with 5

....SRT4 is only represented by 1 so far. Where are ya at?

We are trying to get a head-count for additional items/happenings at the event this year. Everyone thinks you have to pay to register which is not true. Select "CHECK" and it advises that you can mail a check in or pay at the gate. We will plan based on what the registration shows, if folks don't register on the website I'm gonna say I told ya so. Let's show our friends from CHRYSLER that this is the event they want to continue attending every summer.

LET'S GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quaker City Raceway On The Auction Block

QwickSilverC said:
Just seen Quaked City raceway is up for auction

That's not funny
Unfortunately this news is true.

We've been advised by Quaker City Raceway management that the racetrack will be put up for auction and sold (with no reserve) on October 19, 2010. Which means the future of the facility at the close of the season is uncertain. We would like to thank QCR for their hospitality and support of the LX & Beyond Nationals over the past few years. Its definitely a sad day not only for us but also the Salem, Youngstown and Boardman, Ohio communities.

I am currently reviewing offers for the new home of the 2011 LX & Beyond Nationals. The following locations are on the short list: Mid-Ohio, National Trail Raceway, Thompson Raceway, Norwalk Raceway, O'Reilly, Kil-kare and Edgewater Race Park. We expect to have a decision made by end of October. Feedback is welcome and encouraged.
