Default WINTER RACE PLACE!! Pics and Video

There are two guys that made this happen, Toby B. aka ABFWRAPS.COM and Sean T. Both love the hobby, and didn't want to quit racing for the year. So they got together and put this together in 3 weeks. Some of us local racers helps out, but none of it could have happend if not for Sean of Toby..

If you are coming to through the area or are looking for some where to race this winter and don't mind a road trip this is your place..

The Track is Located 6 miles East of Joplin Mo.. Check this thread at HeartlandRC.com for specific directions and race day info.. Winter Race Place Info


Here comes pics and 2 videos..





Video Link 1
Beware of where you park your car. Toby Lost his...














Video Link 2

Sorry if the pics aren't clear. I'll say this.. The drivers stand is awesome not a bad place to stand at all.. You see the whole track excellently from anywhere on the Drviers stand..

And the Hacker Haven.. Hackers get a round in the car if they get called out..


Once again I hope to see some RCTech guys make it for some awesome winter racing..

These pics were taken at last weekends practice session.. I can say the noise was no where near what I expected, and really isn't much worse than outdoor.. The fumes are being handled by 2 large exhuast fans, which do an excellent job.. The rule at the track is no starting Nitro in Pit area, and there is a mandatory 1 minute of silence between races, which helps clear out any hanging fumes, and gives marshalls time to put things up and get to their marshalling areas..

AIGHT AIGHT Check it out..

No pics, but the First official race at the Winter Race Place went of with out a hitch.. Great driving, and great fun..

Terry Brown, Track co-owner, ran concessions tonight and made the BEST "RACE TRACK NACHOS" You or anyone else has ever tasted.. OMG they were good.

For anyone that Might be coming through for the Holidays, you need to stop and check this place out.. I'm telling ya they have spared no expenses, and this track is Primo... Saturday after ThanksGiving will be a MONEY Race with 50% driver payback.. Swing by and say wassup if nothing else..

Nice looking track, wish I lived closer...We have an indoor track, not nearly as large, but it keeps us busy in the winter months...

Man, Is that some kind of underground bunker? that is tiny, but I guess if you really want to race, you do what you can. what does the drivers stand look like?
