Just talked to this place on the phone... they said they are opening some indoor tracks in a few months, they have a lot of stuff they are dealing with as far as codes and contractors... He said something about touring car, and indoor offroad...

If they race touring on sundays or fridays I'm there, if it's on saturdays, I'll be at Horsham.

Potbellys indoor season is on Sundays....practice at 9am racing at noon.
What is cool about the belly, they have 2 indoor tracks a 40x100 carpeted track and a 40x100 indoor packed clay dirt track. They run both dirt and onroad on the same day. You can practice on either track at the same time but the racing is done one round on carpet then dirt and so on. This way if you are running carpet you have some time to peak and tweak. Same goes if your running in the dirt. Check out www.pottbellysrc.com for exact classes.
The track is in Pittsgrove (Vineland) NJ.

Same here,
if they race on sunday or an evening on a weekday...i'll be there..
saturdays are for horsham, they're good to us...

try for sundays you'll pick up a nice following..
and offroad for some reason does pretty well on weekday nights.

just my 2cents..
i'll be sure to keep checking..to see when they start running.

Im sorry to say but neither tracks at Pottbellies are even close to 100 feet long.
The carpet track is probably like 75 and the offroad is no bigger. sub 10 second laps on the touring car track and 12s on the TINY offroad track.

I believe the length is 100ft.... You can always come down and measure it and then stay for the races.....It is a great place to race both in the dirt and on the carpet on the same day........
