PITTING AT THE RADISSON
Here are some of the options this year
for pitting: - HOTEL ROOMS - Racers
are allowed to pit in their hotel rooms. This is very popular.
Hotel has free wireless internet so you can follow the races from your
rooms. We're working with
hotel on a TV channel dedicated to the race like last year! Rooms have
glass covered tables that will work great. North Tower rooms
are closest to the race track.
_______________________ - TRAILER PARKING
has great parking for race trailers, real close to the track. E-Mail
if you want to reserve a spot.
We will broadcast on 2-way radios
again, to hear all the action.
CONFERENCE CENTER - Pitting

the area. Pit area #2 is more for race and class sponsors, and pit area #1
is more for general resevered
pitting. We posted this information on our site for a couple months
ago. Watch for possible openings. Right now full.
_______________________ - MANUFACTURE'S ROW - The
birds are famous for it's Manufacture's Row. Dozens of factory racers
and sponsors will be showcasing products, and being there for you, the
racer. Stay tuned to see the final 'Row' as the race nears.
our 2008 sponsors, their products, and their race teams at the 2008
Sponsors know racers buy products to go racing, and with no racing there
would be no products sold.
Without our sponsors contributions, we could not put this on. Support
them the best you can!
huge thanks goes out to the sponsors,
racers, crew, and spectators!
What began as a small club race with barely 100 entries has evolved into an
event that attracts race fans of all ages and skill level!
We hope you have had a great time, win or lose, being part of the race.
Without everyone's support we would not be able to put this race on."

NASCAR DRIVERS KNOW THE
is awesome to have so many Nascar stars involved with RC racing and know
about the Snowbird Nationals. This
has helped make the 'birds even bigger. Nascar car owner Todd Braun
was heavily involved in RC racing in the 90s and raced with
Mike Boylan across the country. One of our crew members, Gene
Crane, can be heard on Speed TV as he announces for the Hooters Cup
Series. Carl Edwards has drove over to hang out with the racers, and even made
some laps one
See him racing
Tony Stewart led the field in a 4cell mod race a
couple years back and just
this year he talked about the Snowbirds and how big the race is on his
Sirius radio show. Todd Bodine makes the trip almost every year along
with many other members
from various teams. Being during Daytona Speed Weeks is a perfect time
to bring in the top stars & media. This year's schedule promises even
more racers and teams possibly making the trip to the 'birds!
PARMA / PSE CONCOURSE
will have the traditional Concourse event Sunday in the Winner's Circle
thanks to Parma with prizes!

world famous and highly recognized worldwide. The staff of RCTVLIVE

CAR ACTION I
RCM Will be Covering the 'Birds
A huge thanks to these magazines for
confirming they will be in attendance doing coverage of the race for thier
LARGEST RACE IN THE WORLD Selling
out each of the past five years with 700+ entries, and peaking at 828
entries, the bird's is all about racing! With
oval and carpet on-road action, there are classes for everyone.
All the top RC car manufacture's are in attendance and all
top RC racers from around the world are here. Racing around the
clock and a unique format with bump-ups and more, make
'birds one of the most highly anticipated
races in the World. A non-permanent track, equal practice for
everyone, and no local favorites give a fair and even race that everyone
expects and deserves. Plus being in Orlando, the race is a great
with a million things to do and see in Sunny Orlando, Florida. This is
your race vacation destination.
Yes it is true! After 7
interesting and exciting years on I-Drive, we have found a new home.
The 2008 race will be held at the beautiful Radisson Resort in Kissimmee on
192, just 1 mile from Disney and Old Town. This is great area, with
even more wonderful things to do and see while you and your families are
here for the race!
Check out some great videos that
were put on YouTube from this year's event. The racing was
fantastic and very competitive for 2007. The videos shown here are
one of the promo videos we did for YouTube and the 2007 4cell Oval
