Default Best place in the US to live for 1/8th offroad racing?

Just curious what area has the highest quality tracks, best racers, highest level of support etc. I'm guessing southern Cali or Arizona but would like more specifics.

(oh, how is the Denver/Boulder area?)

Thanks.

SoCal is the best I think! But would love to try tracks accross states! but otherwise, Love it here in Socal.... You can have different kinds of tracks and the drive isn't really too far apart. And some of the best Drovers are always out here in the tracks. Like Adam Drake and co are regulars at Revelation. Not to mention the Red Team! and Gil Losi, Jr.

and the weather.... couldn't ask for more....

Arizona! We have the Ntiro Pit which IMO is the best track in the Country (maybe the biggest as well) we also have a brand new off road track just being built...HobbyTown in Tuscon has a really cool track, and we are home to Scottsdale speedway..which has On, and Off road tracks and is the Home of the Cactus Classic every year....The best part is if you ever get bored racing here..3 hour drive to Vegas tracks, and 6 hour drive to So cal tracks

Southern California. You have Revelation, Thunder Alley, and ARC, along with a bunch of other smaller tracks, and if you get into 1/10, there are some great places, OCRC, Pegasus, and West Coast RC Raceway in the process.

Dang I guess everyone would say Socal

but I guess it depends on your own track

I'd love to race in Socal but here in SC and GA I love the tracks

the people are friendly and it's just a fun laid back kinda atmosphere

but socal is a great place and I know Az is a great place

There are tracks in backyards out here in Socal that could rival most. If you haven't seen it...

http://www.undergroundrc.com/videos.aspx?uID=85

Arizona and California probably do have the busiest year round racing. The Nitro Pit in AZ is a great track! In CA, you can always get a good packed race at Revelations Raceway. Known to have a stacked pro class, Revs is always a top pick for those wishing to step up. They also have a good Sunday monster truck and Electric 1/8th crowd.

As this RC racing scene grows, we will probably see more tracks open especially on the parks & recs land in many states. I wish I could do a road trip visiting the top two tracks in every state, now that would be fun!
