Default Pics of the best on-road tracks in the western USA

Considering a move from the blistering heat of Phoenix, looking for a milder climate to work and race......California is a no-go!!!! Will consider a southwestern or northwestern state with a nice local track(s).

Can't seem to find one place to see pics of the permanent tracks, could someone post some links or pics of the nicer facilities. I figure if I'm moving I may as well move to a place with a really nice track, or tracks within 50 miles of each other.

Most likely will run Touring car and Spec GT, and maybe some VTA so any help from the forum would be awesome.

You can move to Flagstaff....cool in the Summer....race in Phoenix in the Winter. You can't drive to Summer in less than an hour in the NW states. Very good facility and competition for oval and road course in Flagstaff. We are racing this Sunday....come up and get out of the heat.

I think the list of "permanent" tracks will be pretty small. Rule the state of WA out with the exception of TZ. Timezone is permanent but it is in the owner's "backyard" and you can't just show up and run. It is epic though.. HUGE race ther July 18-20.. Timezone Gran Prix.

Southern California is the best place to get a bunch of permanent tracks close to one another.

TQ Raceway
Roadrunners R/C Club/Camarillo
Tamiya Raceway
Cal Raceway
And more.

No doubt about that, went to Pomona twice for regional events and once to the Nationals (in Fremont, CA) back in the early 80s. Great racing, just never had the latest and greatest gear when I went to those races....always a tick behind the top tier so I ran in the B mains.

Other hobby interests that I have are not PC in CA.

****

The Timezone tracks look great but so far I'm leaning towards Denver. 2 longtime friends moved up there recently so that's 1 reason to consider CO over other places.

Still need to look into cost of living and the job market, those are also important factors.

****

Flagstaff? A friend and I may drive up for some Sunday action, I'm going to PM you asking for more details about where, when, and what classes are run.


THANK YOU to everyone that responded!!! Hoping more will.....

Yeah I like to shoot..... cans mostly, did some tactical .22 and practical .22 at steel plates and swinging targets at a local range for awhile but work eventually got in the way of that. Not as active with shooting since getting back into RC cars, but can't bring myself to sell them off just to move to a state where I'd have to completely re-tool. Anyplace I go will have to be a gun-friendly state.


THANKS for all the racing info, still 6-8 months away from making the move and I'm just lining up the important stuff first. ..........now to start getting the house ready to sell.
