There are many tracks to race - including two trophy races this weekend. Tell me where you are and how far you are willing to travel and I will let you know where to head.

If you want to run your Serpent and live on Long Island, go to the Deer Park Train Station on Sunday's. They setup a nice track in the parking lot at about 8:00am. Its $10 to race all day!

Its almost all 1/8th Scale and 1/10th Scale Nitro. They don't have any organized races yet but I think they might start that next season. About 20-30 guys show up each weekend. Its a lot of fun!

Like kb said Deer Park train stations is the place to run if you live on lLong Island and don't want to travel far. It's organized and everyone there is real cool. They run all day and they even set up some short races to add a some excitement to the day.

I know that some people used to run behind the Whitestone movie theatre. You can try there, and your more than welcome to join us at Deer Park train station. You can always try one of the tracks in Jersey too. Good Luck

Well, there is a trophy race this weekend at BARCARC in Edison, NJ. Lots of 200mm touring cars and 1.8th scale. I think this weekend they are also going to run electric. Give Chavo an email [email protected] for more information. Tell him Chris sent you.

Or you can goto the CT State Championships in www.hobbychamber.com

Yeap...They run every Sunday!

I'm not aware of any shops sponsering this. I think its just a few guys who invested some money into buying the RoadRails.

The closest hobby shop is in Deer Park which is Extreme Hobbies on Deer Park Ave. Their closed on Sundays though. So bring spare parts with you!
