What i see from there website is Question: What classes do you run?
Answer: The three biggest classes are 1/10th SCT (the Slash SPEC Class), 1/10th electric buggy and 1/10th electric truck. For the remainder of this year we will be running electric only. We have a Novice mixed class which includes new SCT trucks and 1/18th scales. Other classes will be held depending on the number of racers who sign-up including 4WD Electric 1/10th Buggy, Mod Truck, Nitro Truck, and on occasion Stock 1/10th Truck.

Even tho those were the rules from last year, have you asked if they are running nitro?

Travel.

I'm mainly a nitro onroad racer. If 301 doesn't reopen this year (2 hour drive) then the closest really good track to me will be a 10 hour drive away.

Sorry, but I just think it's stupid that people complain about little nitro engines making noise. Races only occur one day, during the weekend. That's why it's better to build a track in an area without neighbors if possible.

I'm lucky, the track I go to is surrounded by warehouses and noise isn't an issue.
