Default Winter off-road within​ 2 hrs of Philly

Hey everyone. Just figuring out what my winter off-road options are. I know of critters, trains and bumps and jumps. Any others for winter racing?

Mimis, home of roar 1/10 off-road nats, in Maryland should be about 2h away

Cruizin will be running turf until it is freezing in their covered outdoor track

If your lucky with traffic, you can make it to Long Island and their soon to be turf track

Thanks for the info. Would Mimi's be"the track"? If so that is almost 3 hrs from me. I'm actually about 30 mins NE of Philly. I'll probably check it out for one of their bigger races though.

That would be awesome. That would be less than a hour from me. But I've seen them open and close like 3 times in the 3 years I've been in this area.

We just need to spread the word. If people show up and they run it well I think it will do great!

True that South Jersey Speedway has nothing to do with South Jersey Raceway but all the videos are South Jersey Raceway. Lot of things here not adding up?

Bumps and Jumps in Etters Pa is little over an hour from King of Prussia area. Easy turnpike ride. Plenty of food from are kick ass kitchen and shorts and t-shirt warm no matter how cold it is outside.
