Default Ulster County, NY. Indoor offroad track,who want one?

Hello from Gardiner, NY.
We are currently in the process of preparing a spot to build a 1/10 scale offroad track in Gardiner. A few other options for our location have recently become available. We are considering an indoor facility near our current location that would obviously mean more overhead. We need to look at the level of interest in the area before we make the decision.
Our goal is to have a clay based offroad track with on site hobby shop.
The track would be available for practice at least 6 days a week.
A scoring system would follow once we have enough drivers to justify buying the system.
If you are interested in having a local track please show it by leaving a comment and also the class you like to run. That would give us a better understanding of the level of interest in the area.

Thank you for your input.

I'm right around the corner from Gardiner,in Plattekill.
I can't say I race off-road,but I'd be interested in a decent
dirt oval tucked in a corner there in Gardiner.Maybe a B-Mod class using SC trucks w/ Mod bodies.Here's a video on youtube of some shorttrack racing with SC trucks, Tons o' FUN!

Lending some help at the site wouldn't be out of the question either.I have an old york rake,and a sears tractor
that could be available also.Keep us posted.

Would be totally awesome to have one on this area. I live in Fishkill and it would be cool to have a local indoor 1:10 off road track. I'm in for 2&4wd Buggy, 2wd Truck, 2&4wd SC.
