last time I was there ran at a track in desmoines(sp hell I'm a prune picker from cali) they ran on road on wensdays and off road on saturdays. and marshall town had something going but once a month check car action. proline puts out a places to race in that mag every now and then hope this helped

Default Tracks in Iowa

I'm not for certain about any tracks over that way. There is a nice track in Fort Dodge called RC Raceway Park. They race off road and carpet I believe, both indoors. The contact number is (515)576-3780. There is a very nice outdoor off road track near Grimes called Outback2 Raceway, ran by Phil Knoll. The track is national caliber quality and the contact email is: [email protected]. The web site is: http://www.midiowa.com/tfracing/outback2.htm and the contact phone number is515) 986-3521. Also in Des Moines is Hobby Haven, and they have races both off road and parking lot. The contact numbers are: (515)276-1213 and the web site is: Hobby Haven . Hope this helps.

thats the one I was talkn about in Des Moines I have raced there not a bad show. My first trip out I tryed to find the one in Fort dodge but couldn"t. Iowa is a great state but rc racing is a little scares.

There is a new hobby shop that just opened in Davenport and they are doing parking lot racing on Sundays. Its a run what you brought fun oriented race. I've never been there myself to experience it since I live out of state now, but I'll give it a try next time I am back in the area visiting my parents in a couple weeks.

i dont have an address other than what info i gave you already. if you give the place a call, they will be able to give you an exact address, and give you all the other info i cant. i got all my info from a good friend of mine that lives in davenport. you could email him and he'll be able to help you more than me. his address is [email protected]. just put something like riley gave me your email address in the subject line.
