Once again the forecast for the weekend doesn't look good, but we are going to be at the track tomorrow (10AM) to get as much work done as we can.

Thanks to everyone that came to help last weekend. Unfortunately the rain ruined our plans as we were getting started. We'll be there again this weekend to paint (Saturday and Sunday - 9AM).

Guys and Gals,

The more help we can get this weekend the better. We have tried several times to paint the track to get it ready for our state race in April. Due to weather, we have not been able to make it happen. We are coming down to the wire, any help would be greatly appreciated. We know nobody likes to paint, but we all want to race. The more people we have to help paint the more we can get done in a shorter time period. Please come out this weekend to help. If we can get enough people we think we can get the whole track painted including the layout this weekend as long as we have no rain. That would just leave laying the pipe and a few other odds and ends. Please help, we will have all supplies need just need man-power.

Thank you for helping getting our track back in order.

Robert

To those that came out this weekend, THANK YOU! Couldn't have done it without your help. We got the whole track surface painted black on Saturday, and the layout laid down today. The versatile layout Dave came up with is nothing short of Awesome! It gives us many options for the next few years without having to paint again!

Pictures to be up shortly!

Our first race back will be the state race on April 18th and 19th. We ask that nobody use the track(per the parks request) until then. We have new LED lights around that track for racing at night as well.

Hope to see everyone soon. We hope the racing turnout is better than the work turnout!

Nice Video! Thanks for all of your help today Roberto.

Also thanks to everyone else that came and helped this weekend. Your help was very very much appreciated. Every little bit helped. We need to add some finishing touches to the layout, but we're almost there.

Hey Andy!

Thanks for coming on Saturday. The next work day will be next weekend, not the one coming up but the weekend after. Going to lay down the PVC and paint the white lanes.

Thanks again!

RGT is a touring chassis.

RCGT is now USGT and has rules set up by the same guys that do the USVTA. It is now 21.5 powered with a spec ride tire (used to be HPI).

Full rules are down this page
