Default Any On Road racing around Gastonia?

May be spending some time in Gastonia and couldn't seem to find anything for on road electric racing. Found some listings for hobby shops but nothing for any racing in Gastonia or Charlotte which surprised me. Also checked out Carolinasrcracers.com and found nothing there either. Somebody clue me in. Primarily looking for 1/10 electric WGT, Oval or even TC. Please feel free to PM me.
Thanks All !!

If you couldn't find a track on carolinasrcracers.com, the track doesn't exist.

Two places running on-road right now are:
The Grove @ The Hobby Stop in Rock Hill SC. Running USVTA, USGT, and 17.5 blinky TC on a concrete outdoor track.
Bush River Raceway in Columbia SC. Running almost anything on road which includes 1/12 scale and Legends spec racing. They have indoor carpet.

Thanks for the help. Looks like I've got 2 good places to go within very reasonable distances. Still can't believe there's nothing going on in Charlotte. What's up with that ??

There is nothing actually in the City of Charlotte because the cost of land and building leases are too high. There was one off-road indoor track in northern Charlotte for a few years but it became too costly to keep open.

I forgot that the Hobby Town in Mooresville has an indoor carpet track. They race oval mostly.

Dont forget there is a track in goldsboro that run TC. Glenns Hobby Corner. They have a paved outdoor and carpet in door. The carpet track is routinely converted between oval and road course. So youll have to figure out their schedule and what weekends theyre racing roadcourse. But thats going to be a 3+ hr drive from charlotte if youre up to it.

Im 1.5 hrs away and would hate to get there and find out, "we're running oval today"
