Yes matt is correct they do run down at beaver, and we plan to run them once we open. They were very popular at the beaver track so we hope all of them will travel to our track. The beaver track runs once a month so we hope not only to get the vta but everything else they run.

Yeah we figured there would be a stock class too. i just knew that the guys that ran before had mod, but this was a small sampling too. Yes we will run them if you bring them. We feel that once people see what others have they will bring their vehicles and the classes will grow.

Andy - if you got the itch to run, come down on Sat and try the dirt again - with the turbo heaters it doesn't really get cold at all. If you put the kit setup on the RT5 you should be pretty close by the time practice is over, especially if you've got some MC suburbs since it's the tire of choice right now.
I got the itch i just gotta finish stuff before i can get to the track. I have another website to finish two posters and a brochure to do, so this weekend wont be happening for me.

John, Andy and myself appriciate your patience. We are working daily behind the sceens to make the best race track this area has to offer. Keep posting any questions you may have. I will get a login for the forum. If you need to speak with me directly please call. 412-480-0882. leave me a message, I will return your call promptly. Keep watching for new pictures.
Thanks again. J.L.
Well for those of you who don't know who j.l. is, that would be Jim Lonzo. He is a good guy and can also answer all of your questions.

As far as the website, i will make a page just for every picture taken up to this point to give you guys something new to look at.

It might end up being a little bit later, due to the racers getting off work/school and travel time. At the latest we would want to start at 8 because we don't want long race nights and late nights to push racers away. We will get a better feel for it once we are open and see when the racers start showing up.

So far the only thing set is off-road friday night. We are unsure of how the turnout is going to be for oval and touring car, so we are waiting to see what those racers want and go from there. We have a good feel for the off-road crowd, and the majority of the racers prefer friday night. This means they will have the oppurtunity to run our track friday night and dirt on satuday at another track. We might possibly running additional nights for the classes if enough interest is shown.
For example, say a group guys would want to race friday and saturday or friday and sunday, we could have off-road at a different time than oval and touring car. so oval would show up earlier/later depending on what the racers want, and then off-road run in the other time slot.
As of right now we really just need to see the turn out for the oval and touring car, then get their opinions and thoughts so we can finalize the race weekend.

Just wondering since people are racing at RC Alley Raceway on friday nights and might want to race there also.
