ROAR sent out the following press release:
Online registration for the 2018 ROAR Fuel Offroad Nationals will open on Friday 3/16/2018 at 7pm Eastern Standard Time.
Cut off is the first 300 entries by date and time stamp of payment. We anticipate high demand again this year and as last year, the time stamp of payment determines the order, including in the event of a system problem, but the cap remains at 300. Refunds for those who do not make the cut off will be issued upon request, otherwise those paid entries beyond the maximum of 300 will be placed on the wait list.
Current ROAR membership through the last day of the event (6/17/2018) is required for entries to be considered valid, including on the wait list.
Wait list entries must be paid in full to be valid. If you request a refund at any time, you will lose your place in line and have to re-enter.
ROAR will reserve 10 spots for the top 10 finishers from the prior years' nationals in the Buggy Class only (which is the IFMAR Class). These reserved spots will be guaranteed only for a period of 7 days (3/23/2018) at which time they will become available to the next entrant on the paid wait list.
