Default update

with the summer racing season winding down i thought i would let everyone know that we are still OPEN! we will remain open untill mother nature dictates otherwise. hours are fri afternoons, all day sat, and yes we are open sundays. and there is NO PRACTICE FEES!

We finnally have all the issues worked out with the timing system and will be testing today.

we have also started building a rock crawling area. it is being designed with 10th scale in mind.

you may also now find us on facebook. there are photos up and hopefully video soon.

Default 2012 season

we are statring to plan the race schedule for the upcomming season. we are planning on racing every other saturday starting when the weather permits. we will nail down an exact start date as spring gets a little closer.
to help us plan for the season and to figure out how many classes we will be running it would be great if anyone interested in running would post there info below. also we are planning on letting the sc drivers pick which track they would like to run on.
race fees right now will be $10 for first class $5 for each additional class. kids 10 and under no charge. we are also disscussing a maximum family amount. this has not been set yet and your input would be helpfull. we want this to be enjoyable and affordable for the family to enjoy.

any questions please ask.

Default snow is gone!!!

well after a long winter the snow and ice are finally gone from the track! we spent yesterday draining puddles and planning where to add a few more jumps. with the weather looking warm and dry for this week we are hoping most of the mud will be dried up so we can start turning laps as soon as next weekend. so if your looking to scratch the rc itch after the long winter come out and tear it up.

as always call,post, or pm with questions

Well it looks like we're going to finally have enough 4x4 sc's tomorrow to run in there own class. had lots of new faces coming out over the last couple of weeks for practice. should be a great turnout Sunday.

Racing has been really close in all classes.with no one running away with the points lead. even starting this late in the season there is time left to compete for the points lead.

a special thank you to the guys that come out early or give up a little practice time to help with track maintenance and other projects like the new driver's stand. your help is greatly appreciated!

Racing starts at 1 pm and try to register by 12:45

call post or pm with any questions
