Right now, we both have "monster trucks" that we would like to be able to race year round, and I would like to be able to purchase and race "on road" cars as well to race. Please advise (anyone's comments are welcome) where we can race nearby, and what on road vehicles you would recommend to start out with but also easily upgradable.
There are three indoor onroad carpet tracks in the Portland area.
1. BigDads Raceway in Clackamas
2. RC-Plus in Salem
3. Timezone II in La Center
There a race tomorrow at BigDads that you should check out. The doors open at 9:00 and racing starts at 11:00.
For offroad, A-Main in Portland has an indoor facility.
Send me a PM if you want more info.
