I too would like know where to be able to drive my toys. I live in Hudsonville, and am getting bored of driving my trucks at the baseball fields. Does anyone know if there are many people running nitro at Battle Front or is it pretty much electric only?

I also discovered M-40 speedway last night in Gobles (about 10 minutes south of Allegan). They have a cool classic arcade inside and quite the variety of sodas as well. The track needs a little lovin, but I think they're gearing up for a redesign in the very near future.

And like I mentioned in this thread GR BMX track being abandoned

The BMX track is being abandoned by the BMXers. They will no longer be utilizing it. If anyone is interested, I'm still considering contacting the city of Grand Rapids to see about repurposing some of this land for an RC track or two. Plenty of space and nice clay for an 1/8 scale track, or even something a little bigger even.
