The Yard will be open on Father's Day @ 11am. Bring the kids and enjoy the mild days we've been having.

Just got 30 cu yards of fresh dirt/clay mix to play with. The track will be closed for rebuild at the end of this month. Not sure yet exactly when, but I will post it as soon as I know for sure. Just waiting to find out when the equipment will be available. Any help or ideas for the new layout would be appreciated.

1o-11 foot lanes and a short straight, about 65 feet.

This wednesday night we will race for fun here at the yard. No transponders needed. I will use our software and manually count. Track opens at 5pm and racing starts at 7pm. I have 6 confirmed 1/8th buggies. There will be open practice after racing. If more guys show we will build some more classes. If not enough show we will just practice.

Lets do it again wed night. Racing for fun at The Yard. We will probably BBQ. And I'm sure someone will have fireworks for the evening. Angels stadium fireworks are visible from The Yard and will no doubt be spectacular. So join us for some more fun on the 4th.

Tuesday night 1/8th scale! Come on down and race. We haven't had the equipement available to rebuild the track yet, so we will remain open untill I can get a bobcat lined up.

The rebuild is painfully slow, I hope to be done tonight and running tomorrow. Sorry for the long turn around. There is only so much I can do by myself.

Big huge thanks to Nick Black and OCRC for allowing us to borrow their spare amb decoder. This will allow us to use personal transponders. You will need to purchase your own as we do not have house transponders available.
