I hope everyone is gearing up for the 23rd. It's going to be a spectacular opening day!

Gary, you are down to two weeks - is the Blitz ready?

ready all depends on if hobby services gets my charger back in time, and if there will be any practice sessions to start figuring out what changes to my suspension, esc and new motor take to be competitive. At MRCR top speeds were probably 1/2 what I will need at Granger Offroad and I was already running 160ish motor temps, pretty sure I will need more tuning than just putting a bigger pinion on. Sure am glad its Granger and there are lots of expierienced racers willing to help a newbie out. Gary

Hey racers! I've been out playing on our giant yellow power-shovel and have four huge piles of track surface worked up. Our track size is expanding and will be around 100' x 180' with 12' wide lanes. We'll have a great new layout for our season opener on the 23rd. Don't miss out, it's gonna be a great day!

Cool, track opens at 8:00 - race at 11:00 Eastern time. The track is now about 100 x 180 and should be very fast. Hopefully we'll have good weather.

See you guys soon!

The weather will be fine if you guys would quit talking about rain! The track is not going to be ready for practice, it will however be awesome for Saturday!

See you all trackside soon!

Huge thanks to my hard-working staff and the many volunteers for all the track work! This new track is going to be awesome. Don't miss our spring opener. Track opens at 8:00, racing at 11:00 THIS Saturday the 23rd.

Well racers, my staff and friends will all tell you that I am the LAST guy to surrender and wave the white flag but mother nature is being relentless. We made great progress yesterday and with a few hours of dry weather would have a most-awesome track ready for our opener. Unfortunately the rain that we have gotten (and are still getting) is just going to make it impossible to have a raceable track (let alone the GREAT track that we want to provide).

So, we will be postponing our grand opening until Saturday April 30th
The track and facility will be much better for the opener. Maybe a few more racers will be able to come next weekend missing Easter

Put NEXT Saturday on your schedules and we'll see you trackside!

Well hanging out and using a shovel, rake, compactor was fun but nothing like getting to be one or two of the test vehicles, well maybe even better was watching the 1/8 scale testers fly 20' high and 20'-30' long to land on the backside of the step-up. Sure makes me want one. I will be there next weekend if not before. Gary

Woooohooooo, Granger Raceway is open for the season! Our opening day last Saturday was a great success. We battled record-setting rains and won. The track was great and we had an awesome day!

Racing Saturdays all summer, don't miss it!
