melanie and i want to thank all of our guys/gals who came out and kicked butt. we went from 2 giant piles of clay-gumbo and dirt and somehow we have a track in 2 days. i know dexter and his family came up big time, with out them and a few others this would not have happened. The track is brand new and we will be tweaking it for a couple of weeks , until we have a grandreopening for both tracks . probably do it first sat in august, we will do something special for all our loyal racers. thanks again you guys rock. cya tommorrow we open at 11.00 am

the track is really fun to drive on we test with barcodes goosebumps flip outs holeshots ......... so far goosebumps were the best.......... the track is brand new and only been in for 24 hours ........ so we have to prep the surface and get it to whole together....... is gonna take a couple of weeks before we get a really really good surface

Default Missing Oakley Glasses

Hey guys,

I left a pair of black Oakley sunglasses in the bathroom tonight. If anyone sees them, can you please return them to the hobby shop. They are prescription sunglasses, so they will not do you any good.

Thanks for your help.

What a great race day. he new indoor track is AWSOME!!!! 8 entries in the 4x4 s/c class and i belive there was 11 heats and like 80 or so racers. 2wd s/c was a great time. But 4x4 s/c is my favorite class.

I wanted to thank the entire NewRed's group for a great time last night!
The facility you guys have is awesome, you are very organized and run a great program, following all the rules as should be done for the safety and fun factor for everyone!
The track, race shop, food stand, bathrooms, pit areas and hospitality were all great and made for an overall very enjoyable first-time experience. I was amazed at how packed full of racers and spectators the place got! The excitement was definitely there!
Kudos to a very well run program!

I will certainly be back and next time hope to be better rested as I started to get a little tired and worried about how tired I would be getting home and how late this would be.
I almost left before the second round of qualifying but figured I would wait and leave just after the second run which would put me at home at 10:30 pm (this old man is in bed nightly at 10! so you can see why I got worried.)


Looking forward to when I can get back there,


best regards,
Ruffy
