Default Lots of Fun

With no racing at MMR tonight, I headed to Ricks with the big XRAY. I had a blast with the track wet or dry. Nice job guys..

Question: What's involved in track maintenance?

I started running a 4wd Slash last year at the Toy Box and Foley - never been to an outdoor track before. As I understand it, patrons of RHF are supposed to help with track maintenance and make donations. What's involved? Should I bring my own rake/shovel? Are donations/fees collected on-site during races only? Would love to get some open practice time in on my weekdays off - just want to make sure I'm abiding by the appropriate conventions. Forgive me if these are old questions - I only ask as I was not able to find the answers after a whole bunch of nosing around, so I figure some of the answers may bear repeating.

The track work is fairly well done for the year. The guys who run the track will post on here if a work day is needed. There are tools there, so if you see something that needs attention, feel free to address it. The track is free, so it depends on donations and race fees. It is a great place to practice because it is open every day. Your financial support would be greatly appreciated. There is a donation box in the shed. Enjoy.

Track Maintenance is pretty straight forward. You can see the jumps and layout and sometimes a groove develops especially during all of these huge rains they have been seeing up there. Ruts can be smoothed with a little shovel patching and/or landscape rakes found in the open shed. Rock picking is always a big help before you run. Just walk the track and any rocks that are loose, just throw in orange buckets or in those areas. We were out there running today and during the running we kicked up some rocks so we just took a few minutes and picked a few rocks. We just try to keep the surface smooth for obvious reasons. As long as your not reshaping jumps (given your not used to doing it) go ahead and smooth if you want to do it. We will probably be posting a work day soon. Work days can consist of some work and more running depending on turnout. Just go out there and have fun.

Sweet, thanks!

Went out there last week in the hopes of avoiding the rain - really cool place. I'll definitely be back!

We are having a workday for the racetrack on Thursday August 7 at Freedom Raceway at Rick's Hobby Farm in New Richmond, WI.

We will be working on the driver's stand and the track. Please come one out and work a little while. Bring your toys too because when working on the track, there has to be some testing! haha
