Open for practice yes...someone else can comment on who you should pay the $5 practice fee to. Track does get watered on race day if it needs it...which is most days but there have been a couple that it didn't need watered (rain in the morning of the race or overnight the night before typically. Yes electricity hookup is available but be warned that if you are hooked up down by the track that a compressor will blow the circuit breaker.

Fingers crossed for good weather this weekend...I've been missing running my toy cars.

Yes, the track is open during the week. It is $5 for practice. You can either pay Shawn @ Spider Hobbies or drop it in the box in front of the rental shop.

The track is completely prepped and watered on race days, so track conditions are much better.

There are electric outlets on race days, so bring an extension cord.

Which truck are you running? I would be more than willing to help with a base setup for your truck.

Enduros or Cityblocks...can leave the Rebars at home if you want. Maybe pick up some Gridirons if you have the opportunity.

Enduro 2's and Cityblocks will work throughout the day and the Rebars may actually work pretty well during the night if the moisture is high or it's grooved up.

Justin, welcome back to the hobby!! We have a pretty decent 4x4 turn out & to be honest, probably some of the most helpful & friendliest racers you could meet!!! I try to do a decent job of watering, but there's those times I don't get the best of coverage, but the mains, that track just pops!!! Looking forward to meeting.

Eric

If anyone is interested I'm selling my ProTek P-8 hauler bag. Mine is the updated version.

I'll let it go for $80 and will have it with me this weekend.

Looks like there's going to be no shortage of traction tomorrow. Forecast looks great, can't wait.

Please keep tabs on here & FB for track condition.
Tyler & myself will be making our way to track soon, to see what shape surface is in.
Somerset I know got hit real hard the last 2 days of rain!! Track is 5 miles away & might of not got it as hard?

We will examine & determine how usable? We will make every effort to run our race format tonight, forcast shows no sun, could be tougher to help dry out surface?

Thank you for your patience & let's get our rc action on tonight!!!
