Default Looking for a Track in Northeaster PA

I live in Schuylkill Haven PA which is about 25 minutes from Hamburg PA and 10 minutes from Pottsville PA

Currently the two closest offroad tracks that im aware of are Hobbytowns which is about 55 mins and the New HobbyHQ in Drums PA which is about the same 55 min

I was curious if their are other options or better yet closer options

Let me know if you know of any

-Stephen

Bumpsandjumpsrc.com is about 45 to 50 minutes from you and is indoor offroad and dirt oval. They ran nitro and electric. Never worry about rainouts or snow during thw winter months and early spring.

the only one that is possible is bumpsandjumps because of distance - what times do they allow practice and what does it cost etc.

Practice is on Tuesday from 4pm til 9pm. We have plenty of electric outlets and is not a problem. We had 87 oval guys Sat and 80 offroad on Sun. We also have the Custom Works DIrt Oval Championships in the 2nd week in Decemeber with 529 entries so we can handle the electric with no problems.

Average practice at least last year was 10 to 20 and as high as 30 a few times but up to about 20 is more the normal.

We had a few guys from your local area race this Sunday. I talked a guy who said he was from Pottsville area and about 10 minutes from Cabelas. Took him right around 50 to 55 minutes to get to Bumps.

You can run any offroad car/truck you would like. Don't matter if its 1/8 or 1/10.
