Yeah, don't worry too much about what others say or think, it's what makes YOU happy. That's why I'm taking my little vacation from the dirt, just wasn't having any fun, while the last time I drove down to Mike's Hobby Shop to run on their carpet was the most fun I've had racing in QUITE some time, that makes it worth it to me(plus it helps that they run early on Saturdays, so they're usually done by 6:00PM, & I can relax all day Sunday & get some rest). I just keep in mind what Barry Baker said several years ago, "We race toy cars for bowling trophies.", & it helps me keep things in perspective....

Nicely put. I just wish I could find enough people or generate interest for TCs in my area. Guess it wouldnt hurt to ask and try again, maybe make a new thread seeing if others from my corner of the state would be interested. Been a while since I tried, and maybe things have changed since.

It'd have to be make shift PL racing though. I dont have or know of anywhere permanent I could leave a track. Its funny though, because I have a vacant lot next to me where I could set up a permanent off road track. But theres a hand full of those in my area already.

I stopped racing for a few years. Got a hair and packed my stuff, got up the next day and drove 936 miles for a simple sunday race. First time on a clay track and the biggest indoor facility I had been to. Awesome time wouldn't hesitate to do it again, Finished 4th to BK and behind two guys who tangled on the last corner and I blew the easy pass.
I'm not one for long commutes but this is your recreational activity we are talking about. As long as the wife and kids remember you when you get home ( I have a dog ) it's all good.

It seems like TC is strongest on the west coast in cali. I think onroad/offroad is equally balanced there in popularity. Everywhere else it seems like offroad is king and onroad TC lost a lot of popularity. I have respect for offroad and love it. But onroad gets no love in a lot of areas it seems. In fact they say racing offroad makes you a better more precise TC driver.

In my area you can go just about anywhere and find an offroad class without looking too hard. And then oval is the next big thing, which is nice, but I want to turn right too.
