Looks like we got a few Stadium trucks coming out for Sure! I know a few more of you guys have those things, lets get a good turnout for our first night race of the year!

This is "laid back lets have fun racing", get some track time, talk some shop!

The track here at Sweet Water is probably the most challenging and busy tracks around, if you are looking to give your rc chops a workout, this is the track for you!

Just put the buggy on the track for a run! Had plenty of traction! Looking for some folks to run against

Will try my best to get some footage of the vehicles in action under the lights.

About to go get some drinks, if you show up and the black jeep is not there, just go in the back where the music is playing and set up.

Had a great time last night, no racing, but I got plenty of practice. Thanks to the few that made it out!

Weather hit us right before 9pm

Got all the lights working, one was dim but I will have a look at it before next THURSDAY NIGHT!

Whats up guys! If the weather will play nice we will be racing/practicing this Thursday!

I am about to implement a few idea's, let me know what you guys think

-I will be getting some trophies to hand out for the classes that have atleast 5 drivers in it and if there is more than 10 drivers will have trophies for top 3

-In addition to the 2 qual and single main, I would like to introduce some penny poker racing/ payout racing. The way it will work is during practice and in between rounds we will run some pay out heats, Simply pick 5 drivers you wish to race, throw $2-$3 dollars in the pot, winner takes all. We can even add handicaps to insure close racing when only a few are around and want to payout race! I will start payout heats @ 6pm and run as many as heats as folks want them!!!

-Getting some sponsored swag to give away to first place and one randomly picked person

I hope these ideas can bring some more folks out to practice and race with us this summer!

Honestly, ideas 2 and 3 would be cool even though I would never participate in the 2nd one. As for the trophies, your already offering free racing and practice you shouldn't have to spend any more of your money. I just wish weather and my schedule would cooperate more allowing me to race there. It seems every time I have time the weather rears it's ugly head and when it's going to be nice out my schedule gets in the way .
On that note I am going to try and make it on Thursday after work, so that's at least 1 st and 1 2wd buggy vintage style. Here's to the weather cooperating.

Well it looks like the weather is going to look good for tomorrow night!..... but we are going to see how bad the storm hits tonight, I will let you know in the morning if all is good.

The track got a bit messy from the bad storm we had recently, but I should have the surface ready to rock sometime around noon!

Going to get me A LOT of practice tomorrow, if anyone wants to join in, come on out
