About 20 minutes to the indoor track(RCHR). I do have an outdoor track about 5 minutes from me but they are really just 8th scale so I dont race there anymore.

My local track is a 15 minute drive. Then again, I live in the boonies.

Next track is 2 hours away that I goto periodically for club racing. They're mostly nitro, so I don't visit them to often.

Trophy races, I'm usually open to up to 10 hours away, but it does depend on distance, cost, and when the race is.

I have 3 tracks that I race at..One is about 20 minutes away (problem is they are just starting out and dont have that many "fast" guys) Next track is about 55 miles away (about $20 in gas..their and back) Next Track is about 70 miles away (about $30 in gas..their and back). I race twice a month and the fuel is part of my "race budget"..
