Default Georgia RC Activity?

Interesting how there are more threads in the Georgia Racing Forum yet there’s virtually nothing current.....what happened here? I’m just getting back into racing and it looks like I’m going to be doing a lot of driving to the Carolinas, TN, and AL to find tracks, especially indoor 😔

I just moved to Augusta and went by the track the other weekend. It’s a very nice facility with a large track. Does Anyone know if they do regularl monthly club races or which classes are popular ? I’m 1/8 nitro buggy

bbqhog - agreed the activity is bad. Not sure how to explain it. Summer heat? Bad traffic? Lack of disposable income or time? Combo of all that???

I forgot to mention:

Sweetwater R/C Raceway
63 Marvin Park
Powder Springs, Georgia 30127

Found that one...
It doesn't make any sense - no track in the metro area. Wish I could get enough people together to support an indoor carpet track. Certainly no shortage of empty real estate...
I did make a list of active tracks within a few hrs drive of ATL:

shady do a search for Augusta rc supercross on Facebook. They do race at least once a month. They also do some state series races.
Derrick Liles is the race director for the track. The facility is owned by the county so it's a non-profit track. All race fees goes back into the track.
