Just kidding, I'm just jealous because you've got 7 tracks near you. Don't forget about Competition Hobbies in Tucson. They've got that nice indoor electric track....

Oh, by the way, I'm 7 miles from my local track (same one MotoGod goes to)

I dont race indoor electric so I didn't name them, there are 2 really good tracks up North also but I dont race there either. You are all welcome to come visit wonderful Arizona and I will personally take you on a tour of the tracks. In one week you can race 3-4 times..sure wish we had an 8 scale on road track..I am jonesing to race those 60MPH bad boys

The tracks I race at are both around an hour and ten minutes away(a little more if I do the speed limit). This is my first full year of racing and I think would drive two hours to a one day race if it was a good time, but I think that would be my max. I was thinking of maybe racing a couple of bigger events over the winter and for those I'll drive alittle longer just because I only have to do the drive once that day.

Winter indoor racing - CRCRC = 2 hrs

Summer dirt racing - Dirt Burners = 2 hrs
Summer on-road - One Eighth Racers = 1 hr

Boy I'm glad gas isn't still over $4 a gal!!

I dont have much time on it, as I am a noob to nitro, but 7-8 mins are the norm. Counterman prob could answer this question a little better, as He has a few more laps more than anyone in the whole world.
