We talked about this at IIC and was liking what the Colorado people are doing. They have an indoor track that for a fee you have unlimited access to and also run races to keep it going and open. I know the hardcore onroad guys are in. In my opinion you need indoor to survive the summer heat time and you need to have something that works for 12th scale, TC, oval and also maybe buggy/sc oval to run on it like HT Gilbert does. I'd love to see an indoor asphalt track like some places in east have. But all of this is a dream if not enough people to support the costs. Onroad is not the hot class these days.

I think there are a few guys in tucson who would be willing to carpool up as long as a track has bite.

I hear SRS will be moving to an indoor facility. Maybe best bet is to convince them to offer an on road track in there??

I know it's not their specialty but at the end of the day they will do what ever the money is at so if enough people come forward maybe. I have a feeling dirt oval is a fad but idk. But ya you guys are right about slim chances.

Dirt oval is not just a fad when you have a consistant showing of three or more classes each race night but the indoor track here is kinda hit and miss theres a reason why adam covered up the onroad track
