I could be wrong but I don't think the one in Drums is still open for racing. I was just looking at their thread on here and it seems like nobody can get a definite answer yes or no if theyre still open.

There is also LCRC... Not really all THAT close to Schuylkill county but still worth the drive. I don't know what classes you plan on racing but there is also Bumps and Jumps indoor 1/10 scare track below harrisburg that runs short course and 1/10 scale buggies.

I have a small track in my backyard here by the Lancaster-Lebanon-Berks County border. Other than that, there isn't really any race tracks that I know of except Trains and Lanes in Easton

Feel free to stop by my place to bash some on-road with us on the 25th of August. Free to race, I supply the cars... doesn't get much simpler than that.

We run Kyosho Mini-Zs, Racer and F1, been around for years now.

PM me if interested.

As far as Schuyllkill County... I haven't seen anything as far as tracks go. Trains and Lanes is prolly your closest off-road. Shame they moved the Hobbytown from Rt. 61, that was a cool offroad track.

I heard that the Hobbytown in the Reading Metro(Wyomissing) is actually building a Dirt track..I do hope this is the case.

I race at Trains and Lanes often as that is the closest outdoor off road track near me. The Drums track closed a long time ago. There is also Barnstormers in Chester, NY. They have both outdoor and indoor off road. But their indoor track is 1/10 scale only. There is a new indoor off road carpet track in Old Forge called Dunn Raceway Park. I havent gone there yet as I am waiting for the outdoor season to end. Feel free to pm me if you have any other questions.
