Bumps and Jumps is THE place for offroad racing in the winter. It is always well run and overall a great place to race.

I don't race oval but they have tons of HUGE events there so I believe its quite a good oval track.

Hey guys I went up to bumps today for my first time track racing. I had a mt and truggy with me so with only one 1/8 truck class I chose the truggy. I borrowed a friends stock blitz and had a blast running that class. I had a fun time and met some good people. I doubt it will be my last trip up there.

you could run 1/8 truggy there for off-road.
all the oval guys run like sprint cars...edms....and prolly some other versions...im not an oval guy myself so i dont know..

running 1/8 there is kinda small...but it will make you a batter driver beings that you will have to learn mad throttle control.

come check it out sometime...it is indeed the place to go....

this happened about a month ago while she was doing dishes.that time she cracked her head on the counter and i had to take her the e.r.....she had to get 6 stiches above her eye lid..they also did some testing and said that everything looked fine...so hopefully if she can go to the drs tomorrow they will have an answer on why this has happened...
Hope she is ok.

As for the oval 509 entries for the Custom Works race in Dec and almost 400 for a race last weekend I would say the oval is just fine. 163ft drive line and plenty of room.

Today had over 80 for the offroad so I don't know but it may or may not be appealing to all but all year both oval and offroad have had larger turnouts than ever before and grow all the time. Its just not the track but the oveall group of racers we have make for a great atmosphere so good or bad we all have fun.

Great to have you guys come to Bumps today. ALways great to have new racers try out the track. The offroad is a little different with the jumps we have but Chris and the crew try are best to give everyone a great place to race at.

Bumps is like my home away from home! For me its not always just the track though. I have been to plenty of real good tracks but there just not ran well so it ruins the experience but bumps isn't like that! The owner and crew he has our top notch! They do a real good job of making you feel like your at home by some amazing food too!

Had a fun time this Sunday. The track layout was difficult on the back stretch but I liked the overall layout. We'll bring the No Limit R/C of Maryland guys up again before the season is over, they all said it was a great time... once again. Hey and I took 2nd in Spec A Main after getting bumped up from B and I never expected to do either of those.

I'm an oval guy who does race there. We run Gas Trucks (Big class), Late Models (Biggest), and sprints. If there is anything you need to know about oval, go to this site, we use DODC rules where you can also find them:
dirtoval.com

When is that next Wed offroad? May need to freshen up
