Heck no, we have a temporary parking lot track that I call home @ the Alpine Lounge (Williamstown, NJ), then there is Millville RC Speedway which just annouced their schedule with a couple of big events planned, then there are a couple of other facilities getting going that I don't have a ton of details on yet....

I will be running Mod Nitro and Stock Touring at the Jackson race probably, still going back and forth between stock and 19 turn....

Most definately I raced there once last year when the track was bumpy & saw the most incredible drifting since the track was bumpy, the coolest thing is when I saw the guy overshooting the first turn from the straightaway into the haystacks just watching an explosion of straw into the air was awesome. Since they sealed the track I raced there two weeks ago & qualified second & placed second for the A Main. My Teammate broke the track record & placed first in each heat & the A Main.
Look forward to meeting you just look out for some fast guys coming over. Name Hint GM

Had my first chance to race with my GQ tires lastnight, AWESOME. Great wear, great grip. Many people asked about these great tires! (must be the rims!) We raced under the lights. Heats started at 7pm and didn't finish until nearly midnight. It was great. Seeing those orange rims under the lights was cool. Other racers who tried GQ tires noticed how well they wear. Many tires were wearing about 1 mm or more per run, but with GQ on board it was less than 1mm per run. I was able to TQ by a lap but had some help into a corner by a lapper that caused me a 9 sec pitstop I was able to finish sec. Not a bad night for me and GQ. Ray

I just wanted to come on here and say i pitted next to ray warner on sat night and he was very helpful to me and my car. He also had his car hookup up pretty dang good at the track. So i would have to agree with him when he said " its got to be the tires" cause he tqed and would have won if a guy didnt blast him from the side.

Just wanted to say that I am very impressed with these tires so far. I ran under the lights with Ray on Saturday, but I ran in modified class using 35 shore, 30mm nitro foams from GQ. I ran 1 practice run, 3 heats, and the main and total I only lost 1mm of diameter. qualifed 4th in mod, finished 6th after losing one of my hub carrier screws. new batteries for next week so that I can use the good brushless all night and finish the 5 min runs.

I am going to have my first run with my GQ tires this Sunday at Jackson, NJ, they are hosting a trophy race sponsored by Trinity so it would be real nice to bring home a good finish for GQ foams there

Just waiting for my package to arrive from Joseph...
