Long Island Raceway in Farmingdale NY, and Barnstormers in Chester NY (winter only - they run nitro offroad this time of the year, and come indoors in the fall). LIR is electric offroad indoors year round.

Long island raceway is a awesome track. Come on a saturday for practice, Fridayafter 8pm racing starts but they open at 2pm. Sunday is usually race/practice. Should try to come on down.

Not sure where Montclair is in NJ but Family Hobbies in Vineland NJ has one of the premier offroad tracks around for over 20 years now. Check to see how close you are to that place because I wish I had a place this killer closer to me. Its 3 hours for me but that is from Harrisburg Pa.

Lomg Island is a great indoor offroad place if your closer to the NY side of things. Don't know much about Barnstormers but it is indoors as well.

I am going here in may, Very hard track but very nice. No practice time except the morning before the racing starts so get there early.

Default Track closest to Montclair

Well I live in north Jersey and I know where Montclair is. I think the track closes to you would be Dirtrunners in Jefferson NJ (www.dirtrunners.com). It is about 12 miles off of exit 34 of Interstate 80. Just watch when you get off route 15 onto Weldon Road - the speed limit is 35 and cops patrol using radar.

Duhhhh. I read the original question quickly, mark, and I thought he asked about indoor offroad, not just offroad electric. My bad! Yes, of course there's Dirtrunners, which is probably a little closer than LIR. That was also the reason I didn't mention Family Hobbies, although its a hike from north Jersey down there. By the time you go that far, you could also look at RCHS in Waterbury Ct coming from north Jersey. What are you interested in racing, and how serious are you about it? These tracks all have a different personality and racer base - tell us more and we can give you a little more info.

I hope to get down very soon. It is hard and the lack of practice time is rough but since it is so nice I can live with that. You should have a good time.
