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 the 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 -
Hotel 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 inside the conference center is new for '08.  Click pics to see more of 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.
 


RACER LETTER    I    CLASS ORDER    I    MANUFACTURE'S ROW




  Come see our 2008 sponsors, their products, and their race teams at the 2008 Snowbirds
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!
 


"A 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 International 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 BIRDS
It 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 year.  See him racing here. 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
We will have the traditional Concourse event Sunday in the Winner's Circle thanks to Parma with prizes!

A huge thanks to these magazines for confirming they will be in attendance doing coverage of the race for thier magazines!


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 carpet oval and carpet on-road action, there are classes for everyone.   All the top RC car manufacture's are in attendance and all the top RC racers from around the world are here.  Racing around the clock and a unique format with bump-ups and more, make the '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 family destination, with a million things to do and see in Sunny Orlando, Florida.  This is your race vacation destination.

BRAND NEW HOME
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!
