Default Racing in Tucson

So I am trying to see if I can get enough people that are interested. I want to find a lot were we could make a track and race. But I know I would not be able to do alone. And since we have no tracks in town, I figure if we group together maybe we could make something happen.

It's never easy. Did this VERY same thing in 1974. Got a lot of 2x4's and plow disks and tried. Ultimately just ended up driving to Phoenix every other weekend. When Bruce finally built a permanent track in 84 at Fast Track, it all came together and then soon there were three tracks in Tucson.

Hopefully someone grabbed up the plow disks and boards from Hobbytown there.

Sad Hobbytown closed. Ace hardware on Houghton used to do some racing in the parking lot...I don’t have all the particulars.

we've had a couple 1/10th scale oval events at the Tucson Quarter Midget track in Marana and we're working on scheduling some more...will hopefully have those nailed down shortly. There is also a group that R/C "no prep" drag races at the mall.

What are you looking for?

We are doing Big paved oval about every other month, there's a small paved oval that gets together too. I know there's a backyard dirt oval thats supposed to be cool.
