Default Chicago TC Racing

This is Oak Park Hobby Town actually, right next to the city. We're moving into our third year of racing and there will be some improvements to the racing at Hobby Town system this year! For those of you planing to or thinking of racing there, the entry fee did change from $5 to $10 per car. From what I've seen, thats still in line with what other tracks charge. Ventures is $10 and AJ's is $15! You will also get the option of pre paying $50 into the program. That will mean your entry fee is just $5 per class and you get a 10% off all regularly priced merchandise in the store, i.e. tires, whells, bodies, paint, fuel (basically, all the consumables) etc, plus the all the other items out side of r/c cars. Not a bad deal at all if you plan on being at all the races or if you spend a lot on those items like I do. Plus it will fund a ransponder system for this year! Though that personally isn't a big deal to me, it is to some of the more serious racers who want times and more accurate results. All in all its a great track experience though not as seriously competative (we do have some outstanding drivers in both nitro and electric to test your mettal against) as some other tracks. Its a fast, fun, friendly environment to come out and race your cars in.

For more details on start dates, classes, etc contact the store:

I've never measured the track but people who have raced elsewhere say its small to medium sized. Yes, there is power but you might want to bring an extention depending on where you pit.
