Default 2011 EMBASSY RC RACEWAY

Hey Gang,

looking to reopen this year with free practice on Tuesdays from 4ish until dark.
Our first race will be on April 30th at noon. Track will open @ 9:30 am.
We still use AMB-RC scoring, have some power, small concessions, plenty of parking. Cost: $10 unlimited racing, 14 and under race for free with a paid adult entry, spouses race for free.
We are starting a track rebuild, and we'll post pics as we get closer.
April 9th will be a rebuild day if your interested in helping contact me.
Be Blessed, Rick

Well, by now we hoped to have some pics posted but with all the rain all we could show you is a few tubes in place and alot of water. hopefully we'll get some on thursday and post them soon after. Looking forward to the 30th for some fun outdoor racing.

We finally got a dry day and have about 80% of the track done. We decided to post a few pics.

With the weather slowing the progress of the local tracks, and Granger needing another week for there opening, we've decided to cancell the april
30th race. We will open for practice on May 3rd and race on July 9th

Is this track still open? I live in Stevensville and am looking for a close track to practice and race on, but so far the closest I can find is 40 minutes away.

Kind of. No racing going on since 2009, but this year a group of guys cleaned it up and have been driving on it. We rebuilt it in 2011 but I'm sure it's not race ready. Probably ready for some practice laps though. Won't cost you anything but some time and your gas to go and check it out..... Rick

I was wondering about the embassy r/c raceway just moved to niles and recently found out about the track. I was wondering if I could go out and do some track maintenance so me and my kids could have some place to go play with are r/c cars besides are backyard where I stared to build a track but just don't have enough room.
