Default Pound It Raceway- San Diego, CA- Parking lot racing!!!

So here is the new racing thread for Pound It Raceway. We are located at

We will be racing once a month for the time being. If everyone wants to race more then we can do that. Track opens at 10:00am. Racing starts at 12:00. Race entrees are $10.00.

We use the AMB transponder set-up and have handouts. Personal are preferred but whatever you need. The track is set-up with the Road Rails system and some fire hose. The dimensions are 100'x50'. We do provide power and an Air Compressor. Items needed to bring are: Table, Chair, Pop up Tent, and a race car.

We follow the rules very strictly here. If you are found in violation of one of the rules you will be asked to leave. Rules are as follows:

2. Be respectful.
3. Use staging lane.
4. No driving in the pits.
5. Pick up your trash when you leave.

7. Try to keep from walking on the racing line unless marshaling a car.
8. No Drinking or Drugs.
9. If you damage the track during practice, make sure it gets fixed.

Racing Rules:
1. Do you turn marshaling.
2. Return handout transponders.
3. Let Faster drivers go (During practice and racing).
4. Be ready to race when your race is up (1 min. grace only in mains).

I just did a YouTube search for Pound It Raceway and it came right up. Track looks good Ray, smooth and good traction are rare for parking lot tracks.

Just got all the cables and connectors for the scoring loop. IT'S ALIVE. Everything seems to be working just fine. I can't believe this is hapening. You always hear of a track opening and you say "I'll believe it when I'm driving on the track." Well you have to show up on the 23rd. to drive on the track. I can't wait.
