we run electric on wed. nights at my track and get around 25-45 entrys weekly. this summer may decline some due to the economy and gas prices. alot of tracks nation wide might see some decline in racers this year due to this horrible economy and stupid gas prices. i dont justify spending 3.80 a gallon to drive 2 hrs. to a track to race rc cars. just had to vent.

Indiana sucks period. Unless you run of them there nitra buggies or billy truck.

We lost the best track we ever had due to lack of interest. All the other tracks would be very fortunate to get 30+ racers. This is speaking of 1/10 electric. Nitro I assume is doing better but I will never know.

Gas prices has had a heavy effect on the hobby in my area and now there is suppose to be a nitro shortage this year driving prices up!

Our local track races sat nights. Winter months oct-may we average 25-40 people usually 9-12 heats. Things die down during summer where we run one sat race per month outside usually getting 40-50 entries.
Electric offroad is gaining racers around here lots of guys coming back carpet is opposite.
WI ran a 3 track series the past couple years and averaged probably 90 entries per race.
