Well... You have a few places, nothing special...

Bruckner Hobbies in the Bronx- On Road
Willis Hobbies is Mineola- On Road
Farmingdale- Off Road
South Shore in Coram- On Road

During the summer they also run On Road at Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn...

I know there's a few more places upstate and in NJ...

Never been to Brucknre, I think it's indoor carpet...

Willis, indoor carpet... Extremely tight, very technical..,

Farmingdale, indoor off road... Hard Pack...

South Shore, indoor carpet... 8 turn modified material... Very large...

Floyd Bennet field, asphault, I think they have an off road back there only running during the summer... There's also an AMA sponsored flying field also..

check out Bruckner hobbies in the Bronx, they race indoor carpet. It was in a school gym the couple times I went there. They have a huge hobby shop as well.

I think Bruckner Hobbies is done with there race program. South Shore Hobbies rules the Northeast. You won't be disappointded!! Great facility and the best competition. I welcome any racer to come down and have a great time racing in one of the largest indoor racing facilities.

We have a tropy race coming up and it's before Cleveland. Great tune-up race. Check the website for sign-up and date info.

Hope to see new faces this winter.

Happy Motoring!! Alex v.

Mdawson- that's where I came from, spent about 7 years in N.J. before moving out here. Sometime this winter/spring I'll be moving somewhere else but I don't know where yet.

I don't have the time nor the patience these days to worry about the maintenence issues on a low turn modified. Did you guys get the 19 turn spec class going out at SSH?
