WELL, JAY, KYLE AND A FEW OTHER'S WERE THERE TODAY WORKING ON THE TRACK. FROM WHAT I HAD SEEN THEY LAYED DOWN THE FIRST LAYER OF DIRT AND LAYED OUT THE PIPE'S AND MARKED OUT THE JUMPS. i KNOW THEY ARE WAITING FOR THE NEXT ROUND OF DIRT TO COME...AND THEN I AM SURE THEY WILL BE RACING ON IT. THE OWNER PAUL JR SAID HE WILL BE GETTING A AMB SCORING SYSTEM ASAP. THEY ARE SO CLOSE TO GETTING A RACE TRACK GOING, SO EVERYONE GET YOUR GEAR READY !!.

They still have a Facebook page, but it need's to be re-done and updated. I was there this past weekend and the track is fine for practicing but still need's a little hear and there. I will see if I can get there this weekend and talk to Paul jr to see if he can have someone redo the Facebook page.. until then...go on up and have some fun on the track !!!!.

RIGHT NOW THEY ARE JUST RUNNING FOR THE HELL OF IT. THE OWNER IS WAITING ON HIS LAP COUNTING SYSTEM TO COME IN. THE TRACK HAS BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER FROM WHAT IS SEEN IN THE VIDEO'S. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE SOME FUN, TAKE A RIDE UP THERE ON A WEEKEND AND RUN SOME PACK'S OFF, I KNOW IT'S A LOT CLOSER FOR YOU THAN THE OTHER TRACK YOU GO TO...NOT COUNTING R/C HOVER...BUT IT'S WAY BETTER THAN THAT PLACE.....

Default Track Condition

Went by today and the track is still pretty wet after that big north eastern we got this week. It has one big puddle in one of the turns....should dry up for this weekend if it doesn’t rain again!
