Default Pit Space and Track

For those not aware we have re-done our track thanks to some donations and track owner Robert Dirla. We are running on newer carpet and a new subfloor, that makes the track ultra smooth. Its 100% better than last year and 12th scale is rolls on it great. We will be doing some more upgrades leading up to the Nats..

The pit tables have also got major...MAJOR upgrades. We have racers that have donated to have these tables done to make our track top-notch. We have all the ones in the carpet room completed but 2, and they will be done by the Nats. For the 8 tables in the dirt room...all new table tops and extreme clean job, it will also have scoring and video on the screen pa also.

here is a pic of the table I share with Aaron, David Sr & Jr...David and his family made it...Thanks again

oops...pic of the track..sorry

We went down for Thunder Jam, and the track is awesome. Smooth as glass, and very fun. Not sure if you are planning on spraying it with whatever traction additive you did last time, though I personally hope not. It made traction a bit interesting.
