Most guys charge off there car battery & some bring a generator to charge with We/FTRC has no power racers must provide a power source if needed

Maybe a shop vac and a back pack blower will help. Might actually have to suck the deeper spots up and blow the track off to keep up with the water problem.

Hopefully a few dry days in a row will help. I rode by last Sunday and things were basically dry (no standing water). Hard to believe it pooled up that fast when it hasn't been a steady rain this week but I guess we've had some heavy cloudbursts.

Same here, I took a ride down to find the track and checked it out from the fence and it looked fairly dried up on Sunday. Of course, while I was there it decided to start pouring down rain too. Those clouds seem to be following me since Sunday.

I was thinking you could coordinate a few visits to G's and FTRC throughout the year. You know, in between races to water the track. Just make sure you leave well before the next rounds start!

You could also contract with homeowners to provide lawn watering services for entire neighborhoods.

If you make me your manager, we could make MILLIONS.

Need some dry weather to get the trucks in for the dirt and to prep the track with the equipment, hope the weather cooperates so we can have the A Burton race, that was the best 40 dollars I ever spent doing anything Rc.
