It would be nice if we could verify what the max entry is going to be...
The rules say 40 entries is the max. Top section:

However they always get cancellations just before the deposit refund date and even after, so they accept more.

I spoke with the rallymaster over the weekend and he suggested: "We'll probably accept 50 to guarantee 30+ starters, so no problem if your friend...."


The club wants to have between 30-40 entrys. That is enough to cover expenses, yet small enough to manage. Like I suggested to others, just reach out to Jerry Hines for various questions or clarifications. The refund period is very generous so it seems worth it to send an entry now, even if you are not sure you can get the time off you need when the time comes. If you don't you'll end up on a standby list. I wouldn't want to be buying the extra stuff we need to equip the bike if my entry is a back-up standby deal.
