I believe they're planning to replace it with an outdoor dirt track.

On-road does not bring in enough people. So Chad is going to turn it into an 1/8 scale off-road track.

We have enough on-road people in the area to support it they just don't come out and race. So this is what happens when a good thing does not get used.

Yeah I understand. I would have liked to get out there last summer but I had to work every Sunday so I did NO racing. It sucked.

This Sunday is a Points Series race. So be prepared. We missed the 3rd series race due to Carpets nats, I think we'll do 2 weeks in a row. The last planned date is also going to move to April 10th as the weekend of April 1-3 is the ePlex race with guest driver Brian "Dumper" Wynn.

Ah yes, thank you for correcting me, I was looking at March instead of April.

Track will be closed Monday 3/21/16 after 1pm. Floor is being stripped and waxed. If we don't finish it , it will be closed Wednesday at 5pm until Thursday morning so wax can dry.
You can Practice on Tuesday if you wish.

Thanks
Russ and Dick

What time on Tuesday would you need to be at the track? There is a slight chance I may be able to come over.

I'm new to on road. I have off road buggy experience, I practice at MHOR maybe once or twice a month. I run a D413 & a B44.3. So I have a XRAY T4 2015 I would like too run at 5280 raceway. Would someone be there around 3 p.m. Wednesday or Thursday. I'm not looking to race just drive around my T4 as I have had kit for over a year with no track time. Thank you

Anyone interested in 2x IP 7800 SHV packs? They are about a year old but really havent been raced much. They are as flat as they came (which is pretty flat, not totally, deffinitely not puffed). Always balanced charged. They are 5mm bullet connectors.

They work great, i just got some different batts. I will sell these for $30/each if anyone wants them. I have pics if you want.
