The biggest off-road race in Iowa is just under 2 months away and I'm happy to announce that JConcepts is our title sponsor for the 3rd year in a row! Along with JConcepts we have 33 other great sponsors so this year's Shootout will be bigger than ever! For this year's race we have gone to an all electric program that runs for 2 days and we expect to see over 200 entries again. Last year's Shootout had 181 electric entries alone and 214 total when you added in the nitro entries.

Most likely not. The parking lot is in a strip mall with businesses around so unless you had a really small pop up camper (not sure what the proper name is) it would be too large and there is no power or water for you to use. There are campgrounds in the area if you want to go that route.

We are 30 days away from the 2011 Shootout and door prizes are starting to come in already. We are expecting large numbers again this year so please try to pre-register early so it will be easier for our race directors to get you into the computer. And remember if you pre-pay by 8/26 you get a free pit towel (1 per driver).

The track rebuild has begun and should be ready soon!





Also, our sponsors are coming through again this year with a ton of door prizes so you definately don't want to miss this year's race!
