Default New Tracks running

For 2012 we have completely redone the outdoor track. We have more improvements to follow including yellow piping (this friday) Mylaps AMB system, Finishing the drivers stand. We would like to start racing on saturday afternoons out side. For now we are running open practice on Saturday afternoons. We have also made an indoor dirt track. It is sort of an l shape but dimensions are 80 feet long, 40feet wide on long side and 30 feet wide on narrow side. After all the rain we had last year we felt we needed this to get the racing going. You can check out the pics on our facebook page K&K Hobby as somehow I cannot seem to upload them here
Thanks

more racing info

50% payback and how that will work is:
1- we will run as many classes as we can...(5 racer minimum per class).
2- we will pay back 50% of entry fees taken in for each class in a gift certificate redeemable that day in the hobby shop.
3- We will pay back top 5 positions in each class
So if we have 10 racers in one class and 6 paid 15.00 and 4 paid 10.00.. total would be 130.00. We would pay back 65.00 for that class..
1st- 30.00
2nd 15.oo
3rd 10.00
4th 6.00
5th 4.00
Racing starts at 2pm and we will be running the track thurday night with the lap timer going for practice
