Actually track opens @ 3:00pm, races start at 5:00pm. Fees are $10 for the first class, then $8 for additional. -OR-if you bought or want to buy a season pass for $100, then racing and practice is free for your first class, then $5 for the second.
Track may/will open Weds/Thurs night during the week depending on circumstance-please call/text Sean to verify..

I believe they said the pits were bigger not the track!

The pits are almost doubled in size, unfortunately the track size is unchangeable in current form. No pics as of yet--the boss wont let us have a break....lol

First race last week went well, new roomy pit lane is "NICE", track layout changed after the races were over in a late night session, and IMO the track has a lot more flow to it..Here are a few pics--Come check it out this Saturday
Track opens @ 3:00---Races start @ 5:00

Say, what classes are you guys running over there? What kind of turnouts? Saturday racing is definitely a plus for me. It'd be a bit of a drive from Ladysmith, but my brother lives in Litchfield and we've been trying to find a place to meet and race a bit.

hey nick as far as the classes we run right now its been alot of 2 wheel buggy, 2 wheel truck, and sc trucks. how ever their have been a few guys who have brought 4 wheel buggys and i know sean will run them if at least 3 show up. we have had turn outs in the mid 20's the first 2 weeks but the first week wasnt really advertised that it was up and running and last week was thanksgiving. how ever we still had ample pit space, so numbers will hopefully keep going up till christmas comes around.

now i did a little research and ladysmith is about 3 hours away via google maps. now im from albert lea mn which is a 2:15 to 2:30 drive and i do it every weekend, some people think im nuts but with the competition being so good and the mood in the pits being very friendly. it makes the drive well worth it. no to mention how nice of a track that is put together.

Are the buggy and SCT stock or modified (open)? Might dust off the old Triumph and run buggy if we can get over that way.

Pretty sure it is open. Being so small, I think most people are faster (more consistent) with a 17.5 rather than lower turn motors.

Thanks. Kind of what I figured. Most of my stuff is pretty old, though, back when stock meant 27T. I've got some milder "modified" motors that would likely fit the bill, I'm just not sure they'd classify as stock with the adjustable endbell, etc. Stock or open class makes a difference at a lot of other tracks as far as tires go with the SCT.

Thanks, again

Also, are all manufacturers allowed for short course (i.e. my SC10) or is it just for Slashes? I'm assuming open means open, but I don't think I saw that specified anywhere... I'm still kind of itching to get the Triumph going again, and my brother would likely run a B4. The much newer SC10 might be a safer bet, though, or both. A bunch of short course trucks on that little track has got to be a blast
