Track is expanded. We are now 80ft X 140ft with the option to expand another 40 feet in length once we start getting a crowd and have other design aspects we want to explore.

The area for the oval has 4ft of dirt that is being removed in order to be use for the jumps, so the dirt is already here. We had to break it up so that it was easier to remove. We had to bring in all that dirt to grade the oval.

Also the purposed Layout will be changing slightly

I will keep you updated. We were stopped again yesterday and today due to rain.

The next 3 days look good. we have a skid loader, bulldozer, and excavator sitting and ready.

Default Good to See!

Nice to see the work done so far. Please keep us posted on progress as it will be great to have a good track close. Are you planning to run weekly or just special races?

I think maybe if there is enough interest that we can go bi weekly. Also it is time to start asking for some help. I have about 70% of it done. it is time to get some people out to help and also give suggestion.

the pic below is not the 70% mark but i shows some of the back part.

those mounds are bigger then they appear, they are about 3-4 ft tall. not to stay just moving the dirt on to place.

well there are jumps in here but with the camera and the dry dirt you cant see them... Haha i was accused today about making them too big, funny how you can see them.

the track is in a 80X140 area.

the front straight is 100 ft long.

the new pipe should be in this week. the small pieces are for reference only.

And I am hoping for some rain.

Working on a rain water collection system to be environmentally friendly.

just an FYI,

The track will be available for practice daily( includes electricity)
3 Rental Stock Slash 2wd available 10.00 for the rental and the first pack ( 4000 mah lipo) and 3.00 for each pack after that. So if you have new comers that want to try it bring them.(responsible for breakage)

Open Monday -Saturday(non racing day) 7:00 to dusk
5.00 to practice any time.
Also racing will be 12.00 for each class
we will have 50/50 and all proceeds will go towards the tracks improvements.

any questions, Call 814-289-9619

BTW the track run line is 710 ft.

there is equal slower technical areas as there is half almost flat out with a e scale buggy! tried to make it as much as a technical as a high speed and high flying track.
