www.lathunderhobbies.com is dirt oval in Newton Al just west of Dothan and think there is another one south of Dothan and that's it for Alabama dirt oval but both are close to Brundidge.

www.lathunderhobbies.com and www.rcfunhobbies.com are both located just minutes from Dothan.

LA Thunder has 2 dirt oval track (one is being completed, this one is larger of the two).

RC Fun Hobbies has one dirt oval.

When are you coming down? Also what kind of car will you run? La Thunder is about 40min from Brundidge and Rc Fun is about 1:10min.

Well we run 1/8th Latemodel, 1/8th sprint, 1/10th sprint, 1/10th Latemodel, and 1/18th mini late model stock and open. But if you bring a nitro car for the electric stuff we will let you run. Also this year we are building a bigger oval thats gonna be a blast for 1/8th scale. I would say that will be our biggest class. The surface is hard packed red clay that grooves up. we are a foam only track.

Sounds good.. I'm used to foam tires.. Is the 1/8th scale LM's nitro, or electric? any engine size rules? Sidedams, or no sidedams? Thanks
