    Default 2018 Namba Lone Star Nationals - Oct. 20th to Oct. 27th

    The 2018 NAMBA Lone Star Nationals will be hosted by the Dallas RC Thunderboats from Oct. 20th to Oct. 27th! We have a great race site at McInnish Park in Carrollton, TX. This Nationals event will follow the previous year's format by offering gas, nitro and electric classes.

    Our race site is located approx. 15 miles from Dallas Love Field airport and 13 miles from DFW airport. Six Flags, ATT stadium and downtown Dallas are all within 25 miles, downtown Ft. Worth is approx 35 miles and Winstar Casino is 65 miles. The Texas State Fair will also be open until Oct. 21st and there is a DART train station located 3 miles that will drop you off right at the entrance gates.

    Since we are located in a city park, the City will be allowing us to use 2 large parking lots for RV's, but you must be self contained. For those that are not self contained, Sandy Lake RV park is within 1 mile of the park.

    Three of the fastest growing classes in District 7 will also be offered as exhibition classes, Sportsman Mono, Gas Outboard Tunnel and LoneStar Enduro. Electric 1/8th Scale Unlimited Hydroplane is also a fast growing class and will be offered following NAMBA rules.

    Link to the Rules for the 3 exhibition classes... Exibition Class Rules

    Heat racing format for sorting of heats will be done following the format used at our District 7 races.

    Round 1 is preset
    Round 2 will be set by how you finished in round 1
    Round 3 will be set by how you finished in round 2
    Round 4 will be set by how you finished in round 3
    Heats will be set by how you placed in the previous round.
    Heats will be kept as even as possible.

This rate will include a full cooked breakfast for up to 3 people per room per day. There is a cash only bar onsite and restaurants within walking distance.

    8 days of racing and 11 FE classes?? WOW this really makes me want to go to this event!!!!! WTF really????? this really steams me!!! I went to the FE nats for 8 years in a row and raced lots of boats in 3-4 days, REALLY 8 DAYS!!! 11 CLASSES thats 1 class a day for 5 days and 2 classes for 3 days. WOW THIS IS REALLY FAIR!!!! If I want to race this even I have to take off from work for 10-11 days to run a CRAP schedule. NAMBA is choking FE racing on a national level. And this "COMBINED SUPERNATS FORMULA" proves it. It's just so rediculous. All things equal, I would rather race a club event than go to this, I would race more in 1 day than I would in 6 days at the nats!!! And probably against better competition. This is a disgrace.
    We call ourselves the "Q"

    Hey Ray, yes there's a raised drivers stand. I'll see if I can find a picture of it.

    Nationals are just over 3 months out. Please get your entries in and make sure to reserve a room! Also, don’t forget the rules on G1 and stock motors. There were a few last year that had illegal GZ4/5 motors. We will be checking! And for electric P Limited classes, the rules for specific motors is still in place. Make sure you’re legal.

    P-Limited update:

    The Pro Marine RC motor model PMRC3656 is an approved motor for electric P-Limited classes for the Nationals. The motor has been verified with NAMBA to meet the requirements of section 28 D.1.d.iii. The race forms have been updated to reflect this addition.

    If you have any questions, please PM or email me.

    I've had a request for allowing the Proboat/Dynamite DYNM3831 A3650-2000Kv. This motor also fits into the requirements of section 28 D.1.d.iii and I was able to get it approved by NAMBA as well. The entry form has been updated.

    We’re less than 4 weeks from close of registration and just over 2 months till racing starts. Please get your entries in if you plan on coming.

    Thanks everyone that’s signed up, we’re currently at 315 boats with more verbal committed to come. I’m excited to see 3 current IMPBA title holders signed up to join us, should be some very competitive racing!
