Correct, it is an outdoor offroad dirt track.

Subcultures/gladiators/bowfighters and calibers work really well, I will be trying the Jcon carvers and the proline slicers this week to see how they perform on the 2WD sc trucks.

Track size is 180'x80' roughly

Drivers stand is 8' wide x 40' long x 14' high

There will be nitro practice allowed on practice days, However we wont have scheduled nitro racing this year.

Thank you very much for the compliments Randy! Hope you enjoyed it yesterday.





Electric Racing Saturday June 25th!!!

Everyone come on out this coming saturday (6/25) for our FIRST electric race! Practice for the registered racers starts at 8:00 am, and goes until 10:00am.

at 10:00am we will have a quick drivers meeting and at 10:30 The qualifying will begin. We're going to take a drivers vote on how many qualifiers you guys wanna run, for how long, and how long you guys want the mains to be!


The track will be closing 1 hour early on friday (7:00pm) for track maintenance in preperation of saturdays race, this will likely be changed in the schedule, but is subject to change, check the website for details.

Everyone is encouraged to come out and race, or spectate! As usual our on site Hobby Shop will be open, we have plenty of vehicles in stock for those who may be new to the hobby, or looking to upgrade.
