Get on 52 going East
Then turn left on Mission Gorge Road.
Keep going for a few miles
It is on your left, I think there is a roller skating rink there. It is in a big shopping area.

It on the left side of the roller skating rink. I have only been there once so I am not sure about the skating rink. Pretty sure.....

There are people there right now practicing, so you can go watch that to start. I heard that the racing is going to start at either 6pm or 7pm.

You can run whatever you want during practice I think.

You can run 7 cells but honestly, I wouldn't. There's pretty limited traction out there as it is and if you've never run on a track, (not trying to knok you or anything) that may be too much for you. I've been racing for years and especially tonight, I had a lot of trouble keeping the rear end straigt running a brushless. There was so little grip and it was so rough out there it was like running on bumpy ice.

That track needs a very soft setup. But you don't want to go too far because then you end up with too much bounce. It's a bit of a balancing game. The dirt they used is very easy to work with when you're working on the track. The problem with that is that it's also very easy for the cars to tear up the track. You can watch a rut develop in high side load spots on the track such as the middle of a berm or on the sweeper through out a single run if you're hitting the same mark lap after lap. It's kind of a living track!
