Add in that, we have really done a terrible job of supporting our CEFX products and we really want to get back on track.

I want to thank everyone who has come out and raced with us and enjoyed our facility. If anyone is interested in anything from the shop/track please stop in and see us. We have already put all inventory (minus CEFX and some tires) at cost/50% or clearance and we are interested in selling off everything else from the facility (carpet, boards, tables, chairs and much more).

This Saturday, we invite everyone with whatever cars, trucks, buggies to have some fun with us to send the track off with one last day of fun.

Also, we will be open 2pm-9pm today-Friday and open 10am-9pm on Saturday.

Again, thanks for a great few years!
Josh, Is there a listing of items online that are for sale? Or is it just at the facility?

Josh,

I'm sad to have never made it to your track. I've always wanted to but school has kept me from traveling much during the indoor season. Good luck with everything and I hope that CEFX continues to do well!

Seaball,

I work in this business and I never got to go to Josh's place. Plus, my future isn't that bright either!

I too, am one of the poor unfortunate schlubs who never made it to CEFX.
I have no avatar, but I'm still very sorry to hear that another top-notch facility has gone the way of the dodo bird.

Josh, from everything I heard, you guys had a great run as far as the track was concerned. It's always sad to give up a facility that you put so much heart and soul in.

But, as awesome as your current 12th scalers are, you knew you were gonna have to turn up the wick on the mfg. side sooner or later though.

That's too bad to hear Josh. At least this way you can come race some more out east and show the guys how to do it. Tell the family I said hello, and good luck Josh.

Andy, did you say something??? Speak up!! You're right though!

At least I got to see the next new class for carpet racing tonight. You all know about stadium racing, this time, 1/8 scale stadium racing...........too bad not very many people got to see it. It still sucks that he is closing.

It was an honor to close out CEFX with some good people tonight.


Jumping the half 8 off the second floor down to the track was pretty cool, can't catch it ALL the time.....OOOPS!


Josh and Angel have a happy Easter and keep CEFX rollin.
