Collin and I have been to King Hobbies the past two weekends and have had an awsome time. Jim is a super nice guy(no big head now) and the race track and surrounding enviroment is awsome. Thanks for putting together such a nice place to race.....

Right now 4x4 sc has the best turn outs. 2wd sc has at least one heat. more 1/8 scale ebuggys than nitro but we are only 2 weekends into the season, and weather has started out looking bad in the morning but turned into beautiful days.

LMAO! I'm now putting up 10 track bucks to anybody who gives you the wheel during qualifing, or the main! haha.

Good luck dodging traffic lol



Alright Guys and Gals...

Racing this Wednesday NIGHT!!!

Practice will start at 4:30, Racing 6:30 SHARP. Weather forecast looks to be excellent, but it will be a little chilly once the sun goes down, so bring a jacket!

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Just moved up to NW Indiana and have been a long time on-road racer. Just put together my first 8th scale e-buggy and ready to get my feet wet. What classes are you planning on running tomorrow evening (4/4/2012)? Maybe I need to do some laps before I race and learn how to jump.......
