Is it still scheduled? I can't commit at this time. And yes, I'm curious about the triple. Not likely it will be a runner by then.

That schedule is crazy. It seems ET classes will not even get a time trial at all prior to Saturday eliminations.  We get screwed over as usual. Now I remember why I started racing in the XDA series primarily. This will likely be my last year in patronizing Man Cup.

 This overwhelming silence makes it seem I'll be the only forum member  in attendance at this event 😬. I'll try to make a report daily if possible to keepyouallinformedof my status. I'm not certain if Russ will have either of the RC bikes in attendance at this event but maybe Sam Green can find out for us.

I've not heard anything from Russ Frankie, I'm sure he would have let me know if he was planning it.

I do know he is on the East coast at the moment but not quite sure where.

I haven't heard any buzz about either bike in quite some time.  Since we're not far out from the event,  odds are we won't see them at this venue in 2020. Heck, i might even leave my 750s at home this time since no one else has expressed an interest in being there.

Kenny and I were talking about it. He is interested in going but unsure. I may have company in St Thomas so that will not work for me. Gotta pick my battles  ;) ;D and this would be the one/the time to miss.

As far as I know guys, the bike still isn't finished, this CV19 has slowed everything down.
I will let you know as soon as I hear anything.

Frank, I just heard from Ken that he may be planning to go. I did not know they'd be running....   I'm glad to hear you'll be there. I will try to get down there, and just booked SUPER 8 in Adel.

Do you know if Kenny planned to bring his bike to race??

Thanks. I just wondered if we would finally get to see that monster make a pass.

He did not mention running any bike down there; but sounded pretty solid about being there.
    Jerry, sorry to know you won't make it this year.   ...Must be a blessing, to have many options  :)

I'm taking my brother to the dragstrip tomorrow so he can make some passes on the new F model.  The plan is to have him ready to race the bike in street ET.  I might race it in super eliminator but will definitely be on my F3 in street.

Glad to see that your brother will be there again; and possibly on the track, this year!  Keepin' it a 'family-affair'.  I'm booked at Super 8; but not till Friday.

We likely won't be there until early Friday morning.   I wasn't able to get my brother to the track yet. He really needs to get on the bike before he gets to the finals.  I think he's coming back to SC this weekend.  I'm hoping we can make time to get to a dragstrip somewhere.

Holy crap! Mancup announces $5,000 purse for Street ET finals next month. One Street ET event spanning both days with round one (WITH time runs) eliminations on Saturday with round two eliminations through the conclusion on Sunday. Double points as well...

Looks like Jay has added a little more entertainment for us at the finals. Pro stock bikes will be racing at this event.
