You need turn-marshling Thatcher?

You are correct though. Should be interesting.

EDIT: looking at it closer, turn-marshling should be fine. There are a couple spots in turns that are not part of the driving area.

WOW that is one hell of a great looking track. I am concerned about the marshalls though. I know it is possible that I may crash.
See ya at the track

The track is 10ft. wide in most of the lanes,the center area is about 15 feet wide.Its awesome, Myself and some others who worked on the track on sunday drove it with 1/8th buggy and truggy then 1/10th to test it out, no problem for 1/8th or 1/10th size's .

I was out there today and it was awesome. I watered it real good and demolished it. Great traction, sick triple on the front strait. Lots of jumps, lots of lines. Great for both 10th scale and 1/8th(I drove the wheels off my truggy today). The E-Savage loved it as well!!! Bring the monster trucks out!!!!!

It is a minimum of 10 feet wide everywhere. The multi-line strait is 15 feet wide.

mmmm multi-lane sounds fun. I bet for 8th scale the big jumps will be the ticket in that lane. Shoot out wide and attack the jump at an angle to flat land it to the outside of the next turn....I wonder if I am right. Oh I so can not wait...!!!

Looks good...

The 8th scale truggies and buggies will tear up the track real fast and ruin the layout and create huge ruts. You are gonna have to redo it for the JBRL again if the big buggies run on it . The track should have been put in the week of the JBRL to preserve the hard work.

We'll have the track open at 9AM. Drivers meeting at 10 and racing asap. Yeah, we like it wet. Thats how we roll. The Babcock race will be dry, but that is how he rolls. See you out there. James
