Default Off Road racing near Fort Walton Beach. FL???

Hey guy's, I'm looking for some off road racing near the Fort Walton Beach area. I know that B & T just closed down, so where does everyone go to race now? Any help would be great. Looking for anything in the Pensacola, crestview, Panama City, or anything in between. Really wanna do some racing. Thanks.

Wow... Apparently people on here are pretty much useless... They will read your tittle and still read your post knowing that they have no information to give you... Thanks.

More like, the ones who KNOW what's going on don't know about this section of RC Tech... I just found it.

The Tallahassee track is up and running, and having its first race this weekend. LA Thunder in Dothan is still kickin it, and we plan to be there this Saturday. The Mossy Head track is under construction, and should be functional within a month. The new B&T track is coming along, but not sure when it'll be ready.

The best place for info on all these tracks, is here:

Sure man, we try to keep as much info flowing as we can. We're all ready to race, we just need a track!

The Mossy Head track is supposed to get clay this weekend. We'll be at LA Thunder on Saturday, and we're gonna try to head up and play on the fresh clay in Mossy Head on Sunday.

Tell Shifty or Don to take more pics, maybe a short vid of the progress on the B&T 2.0 track.

The mossy Head track now has clay. This weekend they are talking about setting up the layout. The new B&T track is pretty much setup, now they are working on the driver's stand. Check out this practice vid with my nifty new... "Hat Cam"

The B&T 2.0 track is at a new location, just a few blocks from Beal on Lewis St:

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie...00284&t=h&z=19

We had our first race day yesterday. There were 40+ entrants, so a fantastic start for the new track. The track was great, kept well groomed all day long, and Tim got to race the whole time! Plenty of space to pit and park, and several of us brought generators, so we all had plenty of power. I managed to get several vids:

2WD SCT A Main:

Around 2:40 into the vid, I lose steering(servo cap popped off) So I decided to follow the leader. Well, I thought the camera was shooting too high, like over that back fence! So, I tried to adjust, and wound up looking too low:
