sweet vids man. Just curious, has anyone taken 1/10 electric out there and run yet? Some of the jumps on that video looked pretty big for 1/10 unless your running like 5.5t haha

Read a nice article in the paper about the track. Good way of getting some attention towards it. I'm sure being in the same area as a MX track and drag strip helps too, but glad to see word is getting out beyond the guys who already race.

Hey all,

I recently got out of the army and moved back from Ft Campbell and am looking for tracks. I've been to the indoor track "PT Raceway" and know about McCullough's but wanted more info about this track. I race 1/10 2wd stock/mod stadium trucks and 1/18 sprint and late model. I also have a tricked out GPV-1 but need a road course for that. Anyway what tracks have been completed so far? Is the 1/18 oval finished? Also what is the schedule?

Thank you

Just one track so far. the offroad track, no oval yet. Schedule is wed eve, thurs eve, and sat afternoons. anything goes from 1/5 scale, to 1/10. Track is too big for anything smaller than 1/10. Hope this helps, I dont think Adam gets on here much anymore to update..

Good racers rarely need marshaled. Now me on the other hand... I need a marshal about once a lap. I always go to practice with a few others so we can all marshal and run with no problems. One of the golden rules of RC practice days is to go in a group so you have marshals.

A few of us are planning to come out soon. We have 1/8-1/10 vehicles. So I take it that I will have to be there on Sundays? What time does the place open?

I have yet to race with those with 1/8... I'm sure I'll be hooked after seeing yours.

DuBois Area doesn't have much 1/8 support.... We have a Traxxas Dealer Hobby Shop and no nearby tracks. I'll be excited to meet and see everyone's vehicles.
