Go and put your location in line A and the town/state in line B and it will give a distance estimated time to get there. Also, it'll give you directions. Very cool!

In Morgantown-Bill Dailey at Outlaw Motorsports has a dirt oval they run in warmer weather. Right in the Sabraton/Dellslow area. Has plans for a smaller offroad track this spring. They do rock crawling too. Stop in and see him.

Carpet-Your options are limited to The Raceway in Beaver or OVRCCC in Parkersburg. Depends if you want to drive 2 hours north or 2 hours southwest. Both are good facilities with a different enviroment. OVRCCC is more laid back and family oriented and The Beav has top notch drivers and close competiton. All good folks at both tracks though. Used to have the Gate and TCRC three hours away but both of them have since shut their doors, the Gate only temporarily as they are searching for a new facility.

Asphalt-OVRCCC also has an asphalt track they run in summer. Year round one open at the HTUSA in Fredrick, MD called the Coliseum.

Offroad- You have a slew of tracks in Parkersburg, 3 or 4. McCulloughs in Sarver, PA. TCRC in Huntington. Saw a thread about a guy wanting to start one in Elkins. CRCRC in Columbus, OH and probably more I don't know about.

You have options- most of them are 2+ hour drives though.

I use to race at the Coliseum all the time, it takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes to get there from Morgantown. Sometimes less. Usually there aren't any cops until you get to the Cumberland area. It's not that bad of a drive and the track is certainly worth it.

Zaner pretty much nailed everything around this area. There's an offroad track in Fairmont but there's no lights or timing. It's more of a practice track. There's also a track in Beckley and an indoor track in Washington, PA. Both are offroad.

Here are some links for the ones Zane and I have listed:

Morgantown: www.outlawmotorsports.4t.com
Beaver: http://www.rctech.net/forum/racing-f...beaver-pa.html
Beckley: www.BadRC.com
