Lightbulb Falcon Raceway ----- Washington, PA

If you are in the western PA area you should definitely check out this track.
It's huge and it's indoor. On test and tune days you can run just about anything as long as it is ELECTRIC (till further notice no NITRO) all skill levels welcome.

if you need a slash take a trip over to A.B. Charles Hobby shop and talk to John to get what you need to start racing.

If you look at the satellite picture you come past the main building on your left and make a left into the access street and follow the train tracks till you see a gray man door on the left hand side before the second set of tracks starts. It is really hard to miss.

There are pit tables, chairs & power (and heat if needed) but bring a rag to wipe the dust off the chairs before you sit down.

It would be nice to see more people. I made a trip up there last week, and it was very enjoyable. I could see that place really get going with some more serious racers though. -Mark

It's every other Friday for race nights every wednesday for practice.
This past Friday (yesterday) was a raceday.
If I can get an actual schedule from them I will post it.

As of right now they are racing every other Friday (Dec. 18th is the next race night) but they were talking about switching to Sundays possibly and racing every week. This place has A LOT of potential!
