We have one new indoor track right out side of New Orleans in St. Bernard parish victory line raceway. Flowood is also a great track.

What tires?
How far from Long Island ny?


Clay compound tires like Panther Reptiles/Small soft pin tires/ Soft soft small pin. From Long Island NY according to Mapquest 1 hour and 43 mins on I-95. They have a tread on the racing forum page on here.

They use a Robotronic Transponser setup and you can get them in house included with the race fee.

I'd throw my RB6 into Midmotor madness and hit up Europe. Even if the tracks are in different countries you can still be there in an hour or two. lol...

I'll throw in a hometown bump for Leisure Hours Raceway- especially if you enjoy high levels of traction. We've been running slicks on clay since the indoor season kicked off a few months ago. The indoor track is one of the largest in the country, and has the best stocked hobby shop I've seen in person. I know there are other nicely equipped facilities, but Leisure Hours is among the best, and I'm darn lucky to live 15 minutes from it. Great group of dudes at the track and awesome competition in all classes.

People that love racing on a world class facility... Plus there's stuff to do locally, gamble at the casinos, paintball just 100 ft. from the front door at another world class facility. Some how I get the feeling that doing "normal vacation stuff" really isn't a concern to you.
What classes do you plan on running during the week?
