Default New short course track in north east PA

Just starting out, out door, dirt track. race on sundays, right now there are only 3 classes, 2wd , 4wd and nitro. There is no lap counting equipment yet so its done by 2 people with numbers on trucks (not perfect but its all we got). Streamside RC Park on facebook if you would like to see some pics ( i dont run that page)

Hi,
I live in the Scranton area. I looked it up on Facebook and asked to follow the page but no response. Is there electric hook up?

Here is there Facebook page, like I said I sent a friend request a couple weeks ago with no response. I checked the track out awhile ago and it looks ok. A small drivers stand, enough for 5 or 6 guys comfortably. A few small jumps and a large one in front of the drivers stand. I plan on making it there as soon as I have a free Sunday.

I made it down this past sunday. It was a good time, there is no electric hook up. The track is one of the easiest tracks I have drove. The lack of jumps make it a real fast track. I'll deffenly be back when time permits.

What time do they race? I'd like to make it there when time permits. I saw they don't have a timing system. How do they make it work? Or is it just messing around?

They give you a number to put on the side of the truck. When you go by one guy/girl calls out the number the other guys puts a lap by your name. I think it was 10 lap heats and 20 lap mains. I don't believe there was many that were hardcore racers, just a bunch of guys looking to have some fun. 25 bucks for a membership then it cost 5 bucks to race or just 10 bucks without membership.
