Seriously though.. I ran about 5 tanks through my nitro sedan last night (back to back, no stopping!) and experience extremely minimal tire wear, and LOTS of traction! I traction rolled my car like 3 times (it definitely wasn't set up for the track).

The layout is fast, challenging, and most importantly: FUN!

The Drivers stand is pretty much finished.... The wiring has been pulled for the additional power, just need to finish the electrical, and get it inspected.....

Hey folks if you have not been out to the track yet.....GET OUT THERE!!!! Tim Potter has done a great job with the track. The drivers stand has been finished and as someone who travels around the country to race, I can honestly tell you the stand is one of the best ones out there. Plenty of room for drivers, nice railing height and a great view of the track from anywhere on the stand.

The track itself has a great fun and fast layout and the traction is excellent!!!

For those of you who might have to work later...there are lights at the track which make it seem like daylight!!!!

Dust of your equipment, buy new equipment whatever it takes!! Come on down!!!!!!!!!!!
