Great turn out this past Sunday.

Had a strong field of VTA, USGT (2 heats each) as well as 17.5 sedan and F1. The 1/8th scale gas racers should appear from their summer slumber to join in the fun.

Hope to see everyone at the track next Sunday.

The track is great smooth and in a gret location the hobby shop on site is awsome and the guys running it Pat and Bobby do a great job They run every sunday road course if we could get more 12 th scale there it is the perfect track for 12 th scale

Thanks Chris

Great turn out this past weekend. 7 full heats: 2 each for VTA, USGT, 17.5 sedan and 1 heat of F1 cars. The racing was very close in all classes.

Next week the local gas racers plan to attend, so I expect the numbers to increase.

The track layout will switch starting on Nov 1st and should stay up for the entire month of Nov.

Hope to see everyone at the track on Sunday

Erik

There are about 5-10 of us here in the Dayton and Springfield, Ohio area. I am looking for more people to get together. I am hoping to get this class jump started.

Great day of On-road Racing on Sunday. Had 6 heats, 2VTA, 2USGT, 1 F1 and 1 17.5 sedan. New track layout was challenging at first, especially as the grip was low, but started to flow very well near the end of the day. Good time by all.

Hope to see everyone on Sunday Nov 8th
