Any ETA on the first race date? I wish I lived closer or I'd lend a hand

A good manageable size (In my opinion) is about 160-170' x 80-90'.

The only things I would personally ask is to not make it flat. Lots of transitions. Less back and forth like most of the tracks. Flow is important. Lots of clay even if the grid is small. just my .02

Allright Everyone, this weekend we will be putting out a few dates out there for the 1st race. We want to make sure we are not stepping on anyones toes. Thanks for the previous race dates of the other tracks. This will help me. Just to let everyone know, this Friday and Saturday is our FDOS RACE. We welcome all of you out here to check it out. Our Friday Night Race program will start at 8:00pm and the Hobby SHop is open until 12:00 midnight. Our Saturday FDOS Race will start at 3:00pm and the Hobby Shop is open as well during the race. Because of this race, we will not work on the Offroad Track on Friday or Saturday. We will resume working on it on Sunday. Ronnie will start laying out the track. He said he believes he has enough clay now.
Thanks to everyone and hope to see ya this weekend.
Kim
