Your track looks better than some I've PAID to race on!!!!!!!

I did notice that you are keeping it's location from all of us

Guess you don't want hundreds of racers showing up on a Thursday to race Sunday and not leaving until Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How much is camping in the neighbors yard???????????


GREAT TRACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you all for the kind words!

We are having such a blast... when my son gets home from school today, we'll be burning some nitro

We're starting on the drivers stand this week!

me and my dad did kind of the same thing with our backyard but we didnt use any dirt i just cut the grass real short to where its just about dead but it was a very interesting terrain to race on there was no jumps and going in the middle of the track and going all the way around it was 1436 feet from start to finish we had made a 4x7 driverstand and it was up off the ground about 6 feet it seemed like a on road track because there was no jumps but then his girlfrend of 7 years started screwing around and we split that scene so i have no more track but that track looks great hope you have some awsome times there

Congrats on that x-GTer, hope you and your son put a lot of track time together, more than RC related time, its father/son time, thats worth everything ...

Awsome! It's a wonderful thing seeing your kid running around the track, is'nt it?. My 7y.o. loves to run his Vandetta B. at the local track and I totally geek out over it. Now hes starting to want to crawl. I love it!

Thanks guys!

In the last 2 days, Brent and I have burned more than half a gallon of fuel! I think we're going to have to choose a specific day (or 2 ) for running cars... this is getting expensive .

He is getting really good - way better than just a few days ago. Yesterday, I gave him his own bench, glow igniter and fuel bottle. I started the car when it was cold but he handled the starting and fueling the rest of the time. The kid is really getting into it!

Keep it up! My son started racing at 5 years old and is now 11 and still enjoying the racing.
We have travelled as a family and have met so many awesome people in the racing community.
We wish you many more years of family fun racing.

My first child is due in January and I hope I can have stories like that to tell. My dad was a great guy but I had to take up his interests to have that time (hunting, fishing, nascar races, etc..) and he was never the sports type.

Hopefully wheter it's a girl or boy they will at least find R/C "cool" even if it's only playing and not racing. But if I have to give up racing for tee ball games, so be it.

Enjoy the times.

Brandon, I can tell you from experience that your child will want to do whatever daddy wants to do. I have a 4 year old girl and she hangs out with me all the time. She has just learned how a glow starter works and she knows all the RC's I have by name. Hope to see you back in Wilkes soon after your busy racing season. Good luck and have fun.
