i did its confusing

from what i got out of it you need a ROAR card and you have to sighn up with them.

Roar card(membership)-$30
track mebership- $15 + 5 `cause im new
Total=$50
am i right?
then its free to practice all days of the week and it cost like $10 to race?
If im right then let me know. ( please )

Thank U

I'm not sure of the details, but from what I understand, you do need to be a member; its private. The ROAR memnership is needed too to cover the insurance issues.

You have to have a ROAR membership, which I believe is $30 a year. Then apply for a club member ship with is $20 Under 18 years Old, and I think $150 for Adults per year.

I dont think you need club membership to just race on the weekends on normal racedays, but being a clubmember will get you discounts, key to the track during the whole week, and eligiblity to Club Only Races.

Im gonna be signing up this weekend probably. Im just right across the road from it. :P

I think you get free practice if you pre-register for a race. So you get the Saturday before the race to practice. You can have unlimited practice times and days when you become a member since you will get a key to the entire field.

Currently all the races I see on their site has a $5 discount to members.

I will be racing a B4 hopefully with my mod motor. And currently only the TC3 at HobbyCentral, unless I can modify it and be allowed to run it on the dirt oval. I have read several places about TC3's bringing competition to other nitro dirt oval trucks.

Here look at this i copyed and pasted right from their web page,

"Buy a club membership Now!
Members have access to the track 7 days a week, and practice is always FREE!"


So you can practice for free 7 days a week. Right?

Yeah, but I thought that had already been stated... You buy the membership, you get the key, you go when you want...

Pretty much. Unless they are having a raceday. Other then that you get the place to drive whenever you desire.
