Default Sideyard track in Canton, MA

Track is still improving, just started the build towards the end of last summer. Full in-ground sprinkler system and lit up like fenway park for night driving! I need to get some good footage, but here's a link to a couple laps

(Newer videos with the new camera)

This is a private track on my home property, and I have a handfull of people driving already, but if you're local, you could shoot me a PM and I'll see if I can fit another driver or two some weekends(I have limited parking).
(Massachusetts, just south of Boston)

Thanks, everybody who's been here has been impressed. Got another load of dirt the other day, and mayby one more tomorrow, to work with this weekend. Shopping around for a real video camera also
I built the track with 80 yards of pond silt, a shovel, and a wheelbarrow(and about 12 cases of gatorade and Red Bull!), after that I rented a dingo for the next couple loads and I must say, what a nice machine, especially for track work!

Its a great track to run at. I run there almost every weekend. Great group of guys to run with. Always willing to help out with car set up, track maintenance. If you get in an invite, I would recommend coming to check it out. Kevin is always looking to improve the track which is awesome. One of the better tracks around.

Thanks Adam, we'll see you later today. Looking forward to a long weekend of tearing up the track, especially with the new Werks B5 engine I just put in the nitro buggy, the thing rips!

I updated the videos in the first post
