No nitros inside sorry. And there isnt much interest in 1/8th because the track isnt big enough to really open them up. They have to be turned dont pretty far to be managable. As far as coming to race, come on out. We will run off-road friday nights. Check out our website or call one of us for more details.

It was great to see so many people at the track Friday night both participating and spectating. It really shows how much a nice facility can bring in the people!

There's been a buzz on the McC's forum about running electric on sunday during the Summer months - for the summer season, I wouldn't have any problem running both facilities since McC's doesn't start until noon at the earliest on Saturdays currently. However, I was absolutely burned out after the late night and early morning, and I slept 14 hours after I got home from McC's yesterday afternoon . . . . . and I'm still tired.

Maybe the Andys/Jimmy can get in contact with Doug and see if they can work together on something that will ensure that people won't have issues getting to either track? I know there is a good number of people who want to run both but can't because of the time schedule (I'm now one of them) - and if both places can work together, it can only benefit both places. Maybe it could be something as simple as McCullough's starting at noon weekly during the winter since we're no longer running nitro? Until then though, I'm going to have to bounce back and forth because 3-4 hours of sleep between 2 long racing programs is just too physically and mentally exhausting for both myself and a lot of others I talked to at both tracks this weekend.

Hey guys, i just got in from the racetrack. We had a huge day once again. We would like to thank all of the racers that showed up today. We had a few minor glitches with the computer, but were able to work through it.
We cannot run off-road on sunday. We have a lot of support for the oval, and it is just not possible to run both oval and off-road in one day. We had 10 classes today and about 40 entries.
There is really nothing we can do about how late we finish. We try to and do run the races pretty quick and even gave no time in between rounds, the only thing that could possibly make us go quicker is to have no problems with vehicles and turn marshals ready to go. Things always happen, so there will always be a little time spent waiting. This is to be expected and really cant be avoided.
We have not talked with Doug yet, and will if that's what the racers want. We suggest that the racers express these ideas and their feelings to him and then when we come in contact with him we can mention it. We do not want to push the idea onto him and we do not want him to feel like we are trying to force him into anything.
I will update the winners tomorrow sometime. Check out this weeks winners for the a mains tomorrow. The website will be updated by 9pm at the latest.
Once again thanks to all the racers.

Very happy to hear of another track! ? Do you have a mod corr oval class on Sundays? Ill check out the track Wed if its open. Cannot run unless I have time to break down and clean from mc's Sat, but I will come and see. Looking forward to the clean, dry, warm location :}
Also any chance of a traxxas rally off road class? I will have to bring mine out to try it on the jumps. They look like the perfect size.

We have modd corr oval sundays and we have modd corr friday nights too. We will have a rally class if more ppl bring theirs out. We have 1 or 2 show up and a few mini revos, but they just sit on the tables, bring it out and ask ppl to run them with you.
